Event description: 

Pushing the limits of the double copy
In this talk, I will explain what the double copy relation is. Firstly, in the case of Yang-Mills ^2 = Gravity and also its generalization to scalar EFTs. This relation was originally formulated for scattering amplitudes, but recently it has been shown to hold on more general contexts. I will talk about extensions related to classical solutions both exact and perturbative. Particularly, I will focus on curved spacetimes, 3d gravity, and the scalar EFTs cases.
Lastly, I will explain when the double copy holds if we include higher dimensional operators for the EFTs.
