Parma  International School of Theoretical  Physics

September 3 - September 7, 2012

Parma, Italy

Scattering Amplitudes in QCD, Supersymmetric Gauge Theories and Supergravity

The  6th Parma International School of Theoretical Physics  was held on the campus of the University of  Parma
from September 3  to September 7, 2012.
This year's school provided an introduction to two topics which attracted much attention in recent years: a fresh look at scattering amplitudes in  N=4 gauge theory, with exciting applications to QCD as well as to N=8 Supergravity. There  have been about 30 hours of lectures followed by discussion and problem sessions.

 Subject list

Tree-level scattering amplitudes in Yang-Mills theories and Supergravity
 Higher-loop scattering amplitudes
  Applications to QCD and particle phenomenology
