Electroweak Radiative Corrections at the Z Peak

  • D. Yu. Bardin
  • T. Riemann
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 233)


Electroweak radiative corrections to the Z peak are determined in the unitary gauge. Peculiarities of this gauge are discussed. A gauge-invariant expression for the weak loop corrections is presented. An approximate cross section formula based on partial Z widths may be derived from the exact one loop calculations.
