Matt von Hippel receives EU Marie Curie Fellowship
NBIA post-doc Matt von Hippel has been awarded a personal two-year EU Marie Curie Fellowship for a proposal called "Amplitudes Bootstrap". Matt's project aim to vastly extend bootstrapping techniques for scattering amplitude calculations that he has participated in developing. Preliminary work by Matt and collaborators in the maximally supersymmetric version of the strong interactions has shown how the so-called Steinmann Bootstrap drastically can narrow down which form the amplitude will take. In his Marie Curie project Matt aims at extending these ideas to the broader class of functions (including those known as elliptic functions) that are needed to describe amplitudes in general.
