In perturbative quantum field theory the KLT relations (Kawai-Lewellen-Tye 86) express tree level scattering amplitudes in (super-)gravity equivalently as squares of scattering amplitudes in (super-)Yang-Mills theory.
These relations are manifest in perturbative string theory-UV-completions of Einstein-Yang-Mills theory, where they were originally found and from which the QFT relations have been deduced: in string theory the graviton is an excitation of the closed string and the gluon of the open string. But cylinder-shaped worldvolume may be read in two different ways: either as a closed string propagator or as an open string vacuum diagram. This open/closed string duality of string scattering amplitudes yields the KLT relations.
Moreover, a color-kinematics duality suggest that these relations extend from tree level to all loop order.
Its classical field theory counterpart is named classical double copy.
