DESCRIPTION:There exists a deep correspondence between a class of physicall
y important functions—called "on-shell functions"—and certain (cluster vari
ety) subspaces of Grassmannian manifolds\, endowed with a volume form that
is left invariant under cluster coordinate transformations. These are calle
d "on-shell varieties" (which may or may not include all cluster varieties)
. It is easy to prove that the number of on-shell varieties is finite\, fro
m which it follows that the same is true for on-shell functions. This is po
werful and surprising for physics\, because these on-shell functions encode
complete information about perturbative quantum field theory.
