  1. 1. Strings, Gravitons, and Effective Field Theories

    Författare :Igor Buchberger; Marcus Berg; Joseph A. Minahan; Karlstads universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; string theory; amplitudes; supersymmetry; particle phenomenology; BMSSM; modified gravity; bimetric; massive gravity; Lie algebras; ribbon categories; Physics; Fysik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis concerns a range of aspects of theoretical physics. It is composed of two parts. In the first part we motivate our line of research, and introduce and discuss the relevant concepts. In the second part, four research papers are collected. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Dualities, Symmetries and Unbroken Phases in String Theory : Probing the Composite Nature of the String

    Författare :Johan Engquist; Joseph Minahan; Charlotte Kristjansen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Theoretical Physics; String Theory; M-Theory; Higher Spin Gauge Theory; Super Yang-Mills Theory; Anti-de Sitter Spacetime; Singletons; Massless Higher Spin Gauge Fields; AdS CFT Correspondence; Spin Chains; Semiclassical Strings; Tensionless Limits; Conformal Symmetry; Supersymmetry; Higher Spin Gauge Symmetry; Integrability; Fysik; Physics; Fysik;

    Sammanfattning : The thesis treats aspects of string/M-theory in anti-de Sitter spacetimes and their supersymmetric completions. By applying the AdS/CFT correspondence, as well as models of spin chains and singletons, we try to attain a better understanding of the underlying symmetries and the unbroken phases of string/M-theory.

  3. 3. Topics in perturbation theory : From IBP identities to integrands

    Författare :Alessandro Georgoudis; Joseph A. Minahan; Tristan McLoughlin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Perturbation theory; Feynman Integrals; Integrable field theories; Correlation functions.; Theoretical Physics; Teoretisk fysik;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis we present different topics in perturbation theory. We start by introducing the method of integration by parts identities, which reduces a generic Feynman integral to a linear combination of a finite basis of master integrals. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Results in Localization for Supersymmetric Gauge Theories

    Författare :Anastasios Gorantis; Joseph A. Minahan; Kimyeong Lee; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Supersymmetric localization; Matrix models; Supersymmetric field theories; Cohomological field theories; Chiral algebras; Theoretical Physics; Teoretisk fysik;

    Sammanfattning : The strong coupling dynamics of Quantum Field Theories with gauge symmetries constitutes a profound problem in Theoretical Physics. Supersymmetric theories offer rare instances where this elusive problem is tractable and can be a valuable source of information and intuition. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Maximal Unitarity at Two Loops : A New Method for Computing Two-Loop Scattering Amplitudes

    Författare :Kasper J. Larsen; Lisa Freyhult; David Kosower; Joseph Minahan; Paul Heslop; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Amplitudes; NNLO calculations; Quantum Chromodynamics; Unitarity; Fysik med inriktning mot elementarpartikelfysik; Physics with specialization in Elementary Particle Physics;

    Sammanfattning : The study of scattering amplitudes beyond one loop is necessary for precision phenomenology for the Large Hadron Collider and may also provide deeper insights into the theoretical foundations of quantum field theory. In this thesis we develop a new method for computing two-loop amplitudes, based on unitarity rather than Feynman diagrams. LÄS MER
