Unstable Particles

  • André Martin
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 261)


The subject of unstable particles is a kind of recurrent subject which comes back every time someone is forced to think about it. In fact one of the most important papers on the subject is that of Maurice Lévy (the Director of the “Institut d’Etudes Scientifique de Cargèse”), published in 1959 [1]. This time the pretext to reexamine the problem is the observation of hundreds of thousands of an unstable particle, the Z0.
