Richard P. Stanley Seminar in Combinatorics: Cluster algebras and scattering amplitudes
SEMINARS, HARVARD-MIT COMBINATORICS
Marcus Spradlin - Brown University
In recent years fruitful connections between math and physics have emerged from the study of scattering amplitudes. I will review and put into context some key concepts from this exchange of ideas, involving cluster algebras, positive geometries, and the amplituhedron. I will highlight further physics-motivated conjectures that may provide fruitful avenues for continued exchange in the years to come.
