In recent years many radiative corrections were calculated to various quantities(1) in the standard model of electroweak interactions. Examples are total and differential cross sections of processes like e+e- → μ+μ- (1) and e+e- → W+W-; e+e- → 11 (2) which will be observed at LEP1 and LEP2 energies respectively. From these distributions one can derive interesting quantities like the forward backward asymmetry and the polarization asymmetry. Another interesting process is deep inelastic electron proton scattering (DIS) (3) e+p → ℓ+′X′ which proceeds via the exchange of the vector bosons γ, Z and W of the standard model.
