Iterated integrals and the Regge limit


The Regge limit (or the limit of high-energy scattering) was recognised long ago as one where unique insight can be gained into scattering processes, owing to a simplified effective description through new degrees of freedom in two- dimensions. Recent advances in the study of scattering amplitudes led to a resurgence in this field, with significant progress in both maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory and real-world QCD. A key ingredient in these developments was recognising the role of integrability on the one hand and of the iterated integrals that encode the physical properties of this limit on the other. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together experts working on different aspects of the Regge limit, at both weak and finite coupling, the corresponding space of functions and the associated algebraic structures. The focus will be on reviewing recent progress in the field and on enhancing the exchange of ideas. The workshop will be held at the Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics of the University of Edinburgh from 10 - 14 April 2017. The meeting will consist of four and a half days with 2-3 talks per day and ample time for discussions among the participants.
