Ambitwistor string theory in the operator formalism

Reid-Edwards, R. A.


R. A. Reid-Edwards


© 2016, The Author(s). Abstract: After a brief overview of the operator formalism for conventional string theory, an operator formalism for ambitwistor string theory is presented. It is shown how tree level supergravity scattering amplitudes are recovered in this formalism. More general applications of this formalism to loop amplitudes and the construction of an ambitwistor string field theory are briefly discussed.
