Physical projectors for multi-leg helicity amplitudes


Peraro, Tiziano; Tancredi, Lorenzo (2019). Physical projectors for multi-leg helicity amplitudes. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2019(7):114.

Abstract

We present a method for building physical projector operators for multi-leg helicity amplitudes. For any helicity configuration of the external particles, we define a physical projector which singles out the corresponding helicity amplitude. For processes with more than four external legs, these physical projectors depend on significantly fewer tensor structures and exhibit a remarkable simplicity compared with projector operators defined with traditional approaches. As an example, we present analytic formulas for a complete set of projectors for five-gluon scattering. These have been validated by reproducing known results for five-gluon amplitudes up to one-loop.
