Review of GUTs and SUSY-Guts

Conference paper
Part of the Acta Physica Austriaca book series (FEWBODY, volume 25/1983)


Over the last decade remarkable progress has been made in understanding the strong, weak and electromagnetic interactions. The most successful theory we have is quantum electrodynamics, a theory for electromagnetism. It has been tested to great accuracy. For example the prediction for the magnetic moment of the electron is 1.0011596553 in natural units and experiment gives a value of 1.0011596524, both with uncertainties ±0.0000000030. Quantum electrodynamics is a gauge field theory and may be derived from the requirement that electric Charge is locally conserved.
