  • A characteristic feature of the electroweak interactions is that the leftand righthanded components of the fermion fields do not couple to the gauge fields in the same way. The term chiral gauge theory is reserved for field theories of this type, while all other gauge theories (such as QCD) are referred to as vector-like, since the gauge fields only couple to vector currents in this case. At first sight the difference appears to be mathematically insignificant, but it turns out that in many… CONTINUE READING
