Composite W-Bosons and Their Dynamics

Abstract

Weak bosons are bound states. Approximately their properties are described within the standard SU(2) × U(1)-theory. Small deviations from predictions made using this theory for certain physical quantities as well as the discovery of new effects like unusual decays of W and Z might reveal soon the composite nature of the Viand Z- particle as well as of the leptons and quarks. The inverse size of the W-boson is expected to be in the range 0.1 ... 1 TeV.
