Description

I will discuss the physical context in which amplitude calculations are required and describe some techniques in active development. I focus particularly on singularities and discontinuities as key tools for exploration and computation. I will describe their physical interpretations and ways to embed them in algebraic frameworks which can aid in constructing the full amplitudes.
