When talking about the spinor-helicity formalism in his new textbook on quantum field theory, Matthew D. Schwartz claims as a highly nontrivial example, it is quite easy to use the Parke-Taylor formula to calculate the $gg\to ggg$ scattering cross section at tree level by hand, which is also one of the problems in the book. (Problem is found on page 560, problem 27.6)
Can anyone tell me how to do this exactly? It looks like we cannot avoid summing $24^2$ terms, and in the paper, http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/0550321386902300, the cross section of $gg\rightarrow gggg$ spans several pages! This makes me expect the cross section for $gg\rightarrow ggg$ is also complicated. Is there any smart way to do it?
