Abstract

The perturbative S-matrix of General Relativity has a rich and fascinating geometric structure that is completely obscured by its traditional description in terms of Feynman diagrams. I'll explain a new way of looking at four dimensional supergravity: as a string theory in twistor space. All tree-level amplitudes in the theory can be described by algebraic curves in Penrose's nonlinear graviton
