Elementary Particle Physics and Field Theory


Standard Weinberg-Salam-Gleshow theory is used to calculate the probability of W+W-pair photogeneration in a magnetic field. The dependence of this probability on polarization of the particle pair and initial photon is studied, together with the dependence on magnetic field intensity and photon energy. The unitary relationship in the boson sector of the model is verified in the lowest order of perturbation theory with respect to the fine structure constant.
