Exploring properties of a 10-dimensional pure spinor twistor transform

University essay from Uppsala universitet/Teoretisk fysik

Abstract: In this review, several tools used in the study of super-Yang-Mills scattering amplitudes are discussed, namely spinor-helicity and (super)twistor variables. These variables are then implemented in string theories in 4D, and a suitable generalization to 10D using pure spinors is discussed. Dimensional reduction of this model to 4D is then performed, and some comparisons to other 4D models are drawn.
