To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Conseil Europeen pour la Recherche Nucleaire, in Geneva, protagonists in current particle physics debates about the theory of electroweak unification--known primarily as The Standard Theory--weigh in from their various corners. Their topics include quantum chromodynamics and deep inelastic scattering, the number of neutrinos and the Z line shape, asymmetries at the Z poles: the quark and lepton quantum numbers, theoretical aspects of the production of electroweak bosons at hadron colliders, rare decays probing physics beyond the standard theory, and the supersymmetry standard model.
