TH String Theory Seminar

Double-Detector Correlations in N=4 SYM

by Stefan Hohenegger

Tuesday, 2 July 2013 from to (Europe/Zurich)
at CERN ( 4-3-006 - TH Conference Room )
Description
In this talk I will consider double-correlations of energy-, charge- and scalar-flow operators in four-dimensional N=4 Super Yang-Mills theory. These operators are constructed from the stress-energy tensor, R-currents, and scalar operators of the theory respectively and can physically be interpreted as detectors. Their correlations can be related to weighted cross sections, which can be calculated perturbatively using amplitudes. In this talk I will describe an efficient way to compute such correlations using superconformal symmetry, which is not only applicable in perturbation theory but can also be extended to the strong coupling regime.
