Summary

An investigation is made of the consequences following from the production and decay of the recently discovered heavy bosons. It is found that various correlation experiments can determine their spins and parities and their polarization states arising from the production process. Further, it is shown that a study of leptonic decay modes can throw significant light on the electromagnetic structure of the leptons.

Riassunto

Si fa un’analisi delle conseguenze derivanti dalla produzione e decadimento dei bosoni pesanti scoperti di recente. Si trova che vari esperimenti di correlazione possono determinarne gli spin, le parità e gli stati polarizzati derivanti dal processo di produzione. Inoltre si mostra che uno studio dei modi di deoadimento leptonico puÒ chiarire sufficientemente la struttura elettromagnetica dei leptoni.
