2/3/2022 – Combinatorics, Physics and Probability Seminar

Speaker: Ran Tessler (Weizmann Institute of Science)

Title:The Amplituhedron BCFW Triangulation

Abstract:  The (tree) amplituhedron was introduced in 2013 by Arkani-Hamed and Trnka in their study of N=4 SYM scattering amplitudes. A central conjecture in the field was to prove that the m=4 amplituhedron is triangulated by the images of certain positroid cells, called the BCFW cells. In this talk I will describe a resolution of this conjecture. The seminar is based on a recent joint work with Chaim Even-Zohar and Tsviqa Lakrec.
