Title: 
Structure of Amplitudes in Gravity I
Abstract: 

We will discuss generic properties of gravity amplitudes both at tree and loop level and including supersymmetry. We will see how gravity amplitudes can be computed using traditional field theory, by employing new analytic techniques and also from Yang-Mills gauge theory via the Kawai-Lewellen-Tye string theory relations. We will also discuss the analytic structure of gravity amplitude expressions and investigate possible simplifications and symmetries.
