Massless scattering at special kinematics as Jacobi polynomials

Chrysostomos Kalousios
2014 Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical  
We study the scattering equations recently proposed by Cachazo, He and Yuan in the special kinematics where their solutions can be identified with the zeros of the Jacobi polynomials. This allows for a non-trivial two parameter family of kinematics. We present explicit and compact formulae for the n-gluon and n-graviton partial scattering amplitudes for our special kinematics in terms of Jacobi polynomials. We also provide alternative expressions in terms of gamma functions. We give an
