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

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
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
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
