Description

The discovery of the vector meson which mediates the weak interactions, W,1 would be of extreme importance for weak interaction physics and for field theory in general. The W, if it exists, will be made in a variety of processes such as v+N →W+ + e- + N, or n- + P →W- + P, or, as studied in this note, P + P → D + W+. The W couples to leptons with a dimensionless constant [constant not transcribed] where G is the Feral constant defined t=so that [constant not transcribed]. Thus for [equation not transcribed] and the smallness … continued below

The W couples to leptons with a dimensionless constant [constant not transcribed] where G is the Feral constant defined t=so that [constant not transcribed]. Thus for [equation not transcribed] and the smallness of this constant is, evidently, what makes any of the above processes difficult to detect. The W may have a variety of decay modes.
