- From dlogs to dilogs

In this talk, I will describe a new form of hidden simplicity in the planar scattering amplitudes of N=4 super-Yang-Mills theory, notably that the loop integrands can be expressed in dlog form. I will explain how this form arises geometrically from computing the scattering amplitudes using a holomorphic Wilson loop in twistor space. I will also describe a systematic method for evaluating such integrals and use it to obtain a new formula for the 1-loop MHV amplitude. These techniques can be extended to higher loop amplitudes and may lead to a simple and efficient method for computing scattering amplitudes more generally.
