Some Current Issues in Gauge Theories

  • E. A. Paschos
Part of the Acta Physica Austriaca book series (FEWBODY, volume 21/1979)

Abstract

The successes of gauge theories in explaining many outstanding issues of the weak and electromagnetic interactions created the optimism that a gauge theory could also explain many problems of strong interactions as well. This led to the present picture where there is a successful theory of the electroweak force and a promising candidate for the theory of the strong interactions. In these lectures I address two main auestions:
  1. 1)

    How good is the evidence in favor of SU(2) x U(1)?

     
  2. 2)

    How convincing is the evidence for QCD?

     

Keywords

Gauge Theory Structure Function Heavy Quark Anomalous Dimension Fragmentation Function 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
