Abstract

The role of radiative corrections in electroweak physics is examined. Special emphasis is given to their significance in neutral currents, m w , m z and Z 0 physics, as well as at low energies. The on-shell and \( \overline{MS} \) renormalization frameworks and the basic radiative corrections Δr, \( \Delta\hat {r} \) and \( \Delta\hat {r}_W \) are outlined. The comparison between theory and experiment, upper bounds on m t , the effect of a fourth generation with Dirac or Majorana neutrinos and novel parametrizations of new physics are discussed.
