A proof of the correlation function/supersymmetric Wilson loop correspondence.

Adamo, Tim and Bullimore, Mathew and Mason, Lionel and Skinner, David (2011) 'A proof of the correlation function/supersymmetric Wilson loop correspondence.', Journal of high energy physics., 2011 (08). 076.


We prove that in the limit when its insertion points become pairwise null-separated, the ratio of certain n-point correlation functions in N=4 SYM is equal to a supersymmetric Wilson loop on twistor space, acting in the adjoint representation. In the planar limit, each of these objects reduces to the square of the complete n-particle planar superamplitude. Our proof is at the level of the integrand.
