Recently, a new understanding has appeared of how certain spacetime symmetries are encoded in specific properties -- known as soft properties -- of the quantum mechanical scattering matrix. This connection holds both with and without gravity. Intense activity in this area has resulted in the discovery of new effects in the soft regime beyond the leading order in gauge and gravitational...
