Motives and Feynman Diagrams  
Spring 201112  

Instructor: Susama Agarwala, Sloan 276, 6263954347, susama@caltech.edu 



This course will
explore motives found in Feynman integrals. The first half of this course will focus on understand Mixed Tate Motives. The second half will apply them to Feynman diagrams. I do not
intend to spend a lot of time developing Feynman integrals of
perturbative QFTs.


The course will be graded on student participation and a final presentation. 

Material for this course will come from several sources, including the following textbooks.
Matilde Marcolli, Feynman Motives Marc Levine, Mixed Motives Claire Voisin, Hodge Theory and Complex Algebraic Geometry I: Volume 1 Masaki Kashiwara, Pierre Schapira, Categories and Sheaves
