Electroweak Effects in e+e Annihilations

  • B. Naroska


After the discovery of weak neutral currents in neutrino scattering in 1973,1 the study of the weak neutral current progressed rapidly. Data on neutrino scattering off electrons and nuclei all confirmed the so-called “Standard Model” of the unification of electromagnetic and weak forces by Glashow, Salam, and Weinberg,2 The famous electron-deuterium scattering experiment at SLAC3 further confirmed these ideas by detecting the presence of a small parity violating amplitude. The neutrino experiments and the SLAC ed experiment were characterized by relatively low spacelike momentum transfers squared of a few eV2 to at most a few 100 GeV2.
