Positive helicity Einstein-Yang-Mills amplitudes from the double copy method

Josua Faller, Jan Plefka
2019 Physical Review D  
All positive helicity four-point gluon-graviton amplitudes in Einstein-Yang-Mills theory coupled to a dilaton and axion field are computed at the leading one-loop order using colour-kinematics duality. In particular, all relevant contributions in the gravitational and gauge coupling are established. This extends a previous generalized unitarity based computation beyond the leading terms in the gravitational coupling κ. The resulting purely rational expressions take very compact forms. The
