The Standard Model and a Little Beyond

  • J.-M. Gérard
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 150)


We briefly review a few theoretical motivations to go beyond the standard model for electroweak interactions. The simplest candidates for such an extension are grand unification, supersymmetry, composite or left-right symmetric models. Could one of them solve the possible crisis arising from the new measurements of the B-meson decays confronted with CP violation in the kaon system ?
