Dual Conformal Structure Beyond the Planar Limit
Abstract
The planar scattering amplitudes of N = 4 superYangMills theory display symmetries and structures which underlie their relatively simple analytic properties such as having only logarithmic singularities and no poles at infinity. Recent work shows in various nontrivial examples that the simple analytic properties of the planar sector survive into the nonplanar sector, but this has yet to be understood from underlying symmetries. Here, we explicitly show that for an infinite class of nonplanar integrals that covers all subleadingcolor contributions to the twoloop four and fivepoint amplitudes of N = 4 superYangMills theory, symmetries analogous to dual conformal invariance exist. A natural conjecture is that this continues to all amplitudes of the theory at any loop order.
