Abstract

Quantum electrodynamics has been tested many times with colliding e+e- beams in the last 10 years and found to be valid. With the advent of PETRA and PEP, the energy range for e+e- collisions is extended from s = 4E2 = 100 GeV2 to 1600 GeV2. With LEP, hopefully in operation in the coming decade, s will eventually reach 4 × 104 GeV2. It is important to keep on testing the validity of QED in these new regions of s for several reasons.
