Abstract

In this chapter, the weak interactions, WI 1 will be described. The history of weak interactions is closely connected with that of the neutral lepton called the neutrino by Fermi. We shall focus on the phenomena that led to hypothesize the existence of that particle, its experimental discovery and the discovery of different neutrino flavors.
