Signatures of Vectorlike Weak Currents

  • Peter Minkowski
Part of the Studies in the Natural Sciences book series (SNS, volume 10)

Abstract

The general framework of a vectorlike gauge theory of leptons, quarks, and gauge bosons is sketched and particular characteristic features involving the virtual excitation of heavy fermions which are entering the charged weak current right- and left-handedly are discussed and confronted with the non-leptonic decays of strange particles.
