The Forward Backward Asymmetry AFB in e+e- Annihilation

  • M. Bilenky
  • M. Sachwitz
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 233)


The forward-backward asymmetry A FB in e+e- annihilation in order O(α) QED with weak corrections and soft photon exponentiation is described. Numerical results of the dependence on the free parameters of the Standard Theory are discussed.
