In these lectures, we wish to focus our attention on some aspects of the renormalization problems in weak interactions. We shall suppose the reader to be familiar with the symmetry principles and the empirical facts which have led to the current status of weak interactions. At the present time, we have at our disposal a phenomenological theory of weak interactions which turns out to be very successful in processes such as: μ-meson decay, nuclear β-decay and μ-meson capture by nuclei.
