Résumé : The talk will start by reviewing Witten's basic conjecture concerning the computation of scattering amplitudes in Yang-Mills theory by means of integration over moduli spaces of curves in twistor space. It will then discuss the Chalmers & Segal action on space-time for perturbing around the self-dual sector. The talk will then go on to reformulate this action on twistor space and finally to show how Witten's conjecture can be proved using this twistor-action formulation. The talk is based on hep-th/0507269, hep-th/0604040 and hep-th/0702035.
