BCJ Relations and the Classical Double Copy

October 03, 2018

Group meeting, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD

The BCJ relations give a formal realization of the $(\text{gravity}) = (\text{gauge theory})^2$ correspondence, via a relationship between graviton and gluon amplitudes. In this talk, I reviewed the current understanding of the BCJ relations for tree-level amplitudes, and the conjectured extension to all loop orders. I also described ongoing research work into a classical consequence of gauge/gravity duality, the double copy relationship between Einstein gravity and Yang-Mills theory.

Monte Carlo Analysis of TMD Factorization in SIDIS

August 03, 2018

Poster presentation, Jefferson Lab, Newport News, VA

Semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering, or SIDIS, is a nuclear scattering process which can be used to study the three-dimensional structure of hadrons. I presented the results of my summer 2018 reseach in the Jefferson Lab Theory Center, in which I developed a Monte Carlo analysis pipeline to study the SIDIS process.
