Abstract

This article reviews the status of leptons and the searches for new leptons at PETRA, the electron-positron colliding beam storage ring at DESY in Hamburg, Germany. Due to the excellent performance of the PETRA machine in 1981 and the first half of 1982 the number of events for the process e+e → μ+μ has increased in such a way that the weak effects in this reaction could be established beyond any doubt. A review of this situation is given in Section II.
