The Standard Model and the neutron β-decay

  title={The Standard Model and the neutron β-decay},
  author={Hartmut Abele},
Abstract This article reviews the relationship between the observables in neutron β-decay and the accepted modern theory of particle physics known as the Standard Model. Recent neutron-decay measurements of various mixed American–British–French–German–Russian collaborations try to shed light on the following topics: the coupling strength of charged weak currents, the universality of the electroweak interaction and the origin of parity violation.
