In the past the bootstrap program has been able to find analytical results for the S-matrix of a variety of (1+1)-dimensional integrable models. Its connection to standard Feynman diagrams computations is however still unclear, in particular the underlying mechanism responsible for the cancellation of all non-elastic processes. In the talk I will show how bootstrap relations connecting different S-matrix elements and the absence of non-elastic scattering emerge at tree-level from perturbation theory for the class of untwisted affine Toda theories.
