Abstract: We consider Borcherds superalgebras obtained from semisimple finite-dimensional Lie algebras by adding an odd null root to the simple roots. The additional Serre relations can be expressed in a covariant way. The spectrum of generators at positive levels are associated to partition functions for a certain set of constrained bosonic variables, the constraints on which are complementary to the Serre relations in the symmetric product. We give some examples, focusing on superalgebras related to pure spinors, exceptional geometry and tensor hierarchies, of how construction of the content of the algebra at arbitrary levels is simplified.

Abstract: The ultraviolet divergences of amplitude diagrams in maximal supergravity are investigated using the pure spinor superfield formalism in maximal supergravity, with maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory for reference. We comment on the effects of the loop regularisation in relation to the actual absence of high powers (within the degrees of freedom) of the non-minimal variable r. The absence affects previous results of the field theory description, which is examined more closely (with a new b-ghost) with respect to the limit on the dimension for finiteness of the theory, dependent on the number of loops present. The results imply a cut-off of the loop dependence at six loops for the 4-point amplitude, and at seven loops otherwise.
