- 1610.00710 Covariant diagrams for one-loop matching

Zhengkang Zhang

*The presentation is nice and pedagogical. The technique of covariant diagrams proposed by the author my be useful to develop an automatic framework for calculating Wilson coefficients. The paper also provides a good one-page review on the latest developments on the one-loop matching.*

Junjie Rao

*Junjie has published independently a very nice paper with a huge volume. There are many fascinating mathematical structures in \(\mathcal{N}\!=\!4\) super-Yang-Mills amplitudes. I am also interested in the interaction of physics and mathematics, especially the applications of modern mathematical techniques in calculating amplitudes and cross sections in QFT.*

- 1609.09123 Nonlinear (Super)Symmetries and Amplitudes

R. Kallosh

*Two very interesting papers by Renata Kallosh and/or her collaborators discuss the nonlinear symmetry and SUSY in Volkovâ€“Akulov theory and its maximally supersymmetric extension, \(\mathcal{N}\!=\!4\) super Dirac-Born-Infeld-Volkov-Akulov theory. In a recent paper [1604.02834], I have proposed the ambitwistor-string formula of tree amplitudes and derive universal double soft limits in DBI-VA, in collaboration with Song and Junbao. Renata has used our results and studied the hidden coset structure. “The non-vanishing of the double-soft limit is due to a non-commutative nature of the spontaneously broken symmetry generators”.*
