Program on Mathematical Aspects of Scattering Amplitudes

April 15, 2024 @ 9:00 am - May 24, 2024 @ 5:00 pm

Mathematical Aspects of Scattering Amplitudes Program

To receive email updates and program announcements, visit this link to sign up for the CMSA Mathematical Aspects of Scattering Amplitudes Program mailing list.

Dates: April 15 – May 24, 2024

Location: Harvard CMSA, 20 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA 02138

This program will bring together and foster interaction between theoretical physicists and mathematicians working on various topics connected to recent developments in our understanding of scattering amplitudes in quantum field theory. The field has advanced considerably since 2019 when the CMSA hosted the program “Spacetime and Quantum Mechanics, Total Positivity and Motives.” Recent developments have primed this area for further significant advances, which will be facilitated by bringing together many of the relevant experts for intensive discussion and collaboration.

The program will feature a weekly seminar series.
