    Classical Polylogarithms for Amplitudes and Wilson Loops

    Full text link
    We present a compact analytic formula for the two-loop six-particle MHV remainder function (equivalently, the two-loop light-like hexagon Wilson loop) in N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory in terms of the classical polylogarithm functions Li_k with cross-ratios of momentum twistor invariants as their arguments. In deriving our result we rely on results from the theory of motives.Comment: 11 pages, v2: journal version, minor corrections and simplifications, additional details available at http://goo.gl/Cl0

    Estimates for parameters and characteristics of the confining SU(3)-gluonic field in neutral kaons and chiral limit for pseudoscalar nonet

    Full text link
    First part of the paper is devoted to applying the confinement mechanism proposed earlier by the author to estimate the possible parameters of the confining SU(3)-gluonic field in neutral kaons. The estimates obtained are consistent with the widths of the electromagnetic decays K0,Kˉ02γK^0,\bar{K}^0\to2\gamma too. The corresponding estimates of the gluon concentrations, electric and magnetic colour field strengths are also adduced for the mentioned field at the scales of the mesons under consideration. The second part of the paper takes into account the results obtained previously by the author to estimate the purely gluonic contribution to the masses of all the mesons of pseudoscalar nonet and also to consider a possible relation with a phenomenological string-like picture of confinement. Finally, the problem of masses in particle physics is shortly discussed within the framework of approach to the chiral symmetry breaking in quantum chromodynamics (QCD) proposed recently by the author.Comment: LaTeX, 16 pages, 2 figure

    Euler complexes and geometry of modular varieties

    Full text link
    There is a mysterious connection between the multiple polylogarithms at N-th roots of unity and modular varieties. In this paper we "explain" it in the simplest case of the double logarithm. We introduce an Euler complex data on modular curves. It includes a length two complex on every modular curve. Their second cohomology groups recover the Beilinson-Kato Euler system in K_2 of modular curves. We show that the above connection in the double logarithm case is provided by the specialization at a cusp of the Euler complex data on the modular curve Y_1(N). Furthermore, specializing the Euler complexes at CM points we find new examples of the connection with geometry of modular varieties, this time hyperbolic 3-folds.Comment: Dedicated to Joseph Bernstein for his 60th birthday.

    Polylogarithms, regulators and Arakelov motivic complexes

    Full text link
    We construct an explicit regulator map from the weigh n Bloch Higher Chow group complexto the weight n Deligne complex of a regular complex projective algebraic variety X. We define the Arakelovweight n motivic complex as the cone of this map shifted by one. Its last cohomology group is (a version of) the Arakelov Chow group defined by H. Gillet. and C.Soule. We relate the Grassmannian n-logarithms (defined as in [G5]) to geometry of the symmetric space for GL_n(C). For n=2 we recover Lobachevsky's formula for the volume of an ideal geodesic tetrahedron via the dilogarithm. Using the relationship with symmetric spaces we construct the Borel regulator on K_{2n-1}(C) via the Grassmannian n-logarithms. We study the Chow dilogarithm and prove a reciprocity law which strengthens Suslin's reciprocity law for Milnor's K_3 on curves.Comment: Version 3: It is the final version, as it will appear in JAMS. 71 pages, 12 figure
