Proton Decay

  • M. Koshiba
Part of the The Subnuclear Series book series (SUS, volume 22)

Abstract

Perhaps one should begin with the historical survey of the subject. However, there recently appeared two, one theoretical1 and one experimental2, excellent reviews. Hence, I shall restrict myself to the motivations why we are seriously working on proton decay experiment.
