Spinor Moving Frame, Polarized Scattering Equation for 11D Supergravity, and Ambitwistor Superstring
Keywords:supersymmetry, amplitudes, supergravity, higher dimensions, spinor moving frame, ambitwistor string
We reveal and discuss the spinor moving frame origin of the formalism of the 11D polarized scattering equation by Geyer and Mason . In particular, we use the spinor moving frame formulation of the 11D ambitwistor superstring  considered as a dynamical system in the 11D superspace enlarged by tensorial central charge coordinates to rigorously obtain the expression for the spinor function on a Riemann sphere and the polarized scattering equation which that obeys.
