Results in Electroweak Radiative Corrections

  • M. Böhm
Conference paper


The electroweak standard model has successfully passed all experimental checks [1]. Above all the predictions of the existence and the properties of the W ± and Z bosons have been verified. The next generation of high energy machines such as SLC, LEP and HERA, going into operation soon, will make possible precision tests of the electroweak interaction. An adequate theoretical discussion of these ex- periments requires the inclusion of higher order effects i.e. of radiative corrections (RC). RC effects are important by themselves since they are generated by the quan- tum dynamics of the theory. This means that precision experiments test whether the electroweak interaction can be described as a relativistic quantum field theory in form of a non-abelian gauge theory with spontaneous symmetry breaking. The machines mentioned above allow also to look for physics beyond the standard model. New physics will probably manifest itself at first in small deviations from the stan- dard model predictions, therefore those have to be known with high accuracy, again requiring RCs.
