The state of the standard model

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The author reviewed the successes of quantum chromodynamics. Then he assessed the current state of the electroweak theory, making brief comments about the search for the Higgs boson and some of the open issues for the theory. He sketches the problems of mass and mass scales, and points to a speculative link between the question of identity and large extra dimensions. To conclude, he returns to QCD and the possibility that its phase structure might inform the understanding of electroweak symmetry breaking.
