Geometry, Analysis and Topology of Feynman Amplitudes
Emad Nasrollahpoursammi, Mathematics, Caltech,

Feynman Amplitudes are certain integrals that appear in perturbative quantum field theory. It turns out that values of these integrals are "Periods" in sense of algebraic geometry. Periods are defined using a pairing between homology and algebraic de Rahm cohomology of algebraic varieties. In this talk I will define Feynman amplitudes and describe the relation to algebraic geometry.
