Scattering amplitudes and tropical Grassmannians

29 November 2021

The analytic structure of scattering amplitudes exhibit striking
properties that are not at all evident from the first principles of
Quantum Field Theory. These are often rich and powerful enough to be
considered as their defining features, and this makes the problem of
finding a set of universal rules a compelling one. I will review the
recently mounting evidence for the relevance of tropical Grassmannians
in this respect, including implications on symbol alphabets and
adjacency conditions
