In this talk I will show how to generate classical space-times directly from S matrices. The method makes no use of Einsteins’ equations nor, for that matter, any space-time action at all. This approach also allows us to make direct contact between the classical solutions of Yang-Mills theory and those of gravity through the squaring relation between the Yang-Mills and gravitational tree level scattering amplitudes. In this way one may construct classical space-times directly from Yang-Mills theory. –
