  1. A bstract Color-factor symmetry is a property of tree-level gauge-theory amplitudes containing at least one gluon. BCJ relations among color-ordered amplitudes follow directly from this symmetry. Color-factor symmetry is also a feature of biadjoint scalar theory amplitudes as well as of their equations of motion. In this paper, we present a new proof of color-factor symmetry using a recursive method derived from the perturbiner expansion of the classical equations of motion.

  2. A bstract A previously proposed all-loop-orders relation between the Regge limits of four-point amplitudes of $$ \mathcal{N} $$ N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory and $$ \mathcal{N} $$ N = 8 supergravity is established at the three-loop level. We show that the Regge limit of known expressions for the amplitudes obtained using generalized unitarity simplifies in both cases to a (modified) sum over three-loop ladder and crossed-ladder scalar diagrams. This in turn is consistent with the result obtained using the eikonal representation of the four-point gravity amplitude. A possible exact three-loop relation between four-point amplitudes is also considered.

    A bstract We examine in detail the structure of the Regge limit of the (nonplanar) $$ \mathcal{N} $$ N = 4 SYM four-point amplitude. We begin by developing a basis of color factors C ik suitable for the Regge limit of the amplitude at any loop order, and then calculate explicitly the coefficients of the amplitude in that basis through three-loop order using the Regge limit of the full amplitude previously calculated by Henn and Mistlberger. We compute these coefficients exactly at one loop, through $$ \mathcal{O}\left({\upepsilon}^2\right) $$ O ϵ 2 at two loops, and through $$ \mathcal{O}\left({\upepsilon}^0\right) $$ O ϵ 0 at three loops, verifying that the IR-divergent pieces are consistent with (the Regge limit of) the expected infrared divergence structure, including a contribution from the three-loop correction to the dipole formula. We also verify consistency with the IR-finite NLL and NNLL predictions of Caron-Huot et al. Finally we use these results to motivate the conjecture of an all-orders relation between one of the coefficients and the Regge limit of the $$ \mathcal{N} $$ N = 8 supergravity four-point amplitude.
