by Michael E. Peskin

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2017**Number of pages**: 96

**Description**:

The topics discussed are: (1) the experimental basis of the V-A structure of the weak interaction; (2) precision electroweak measurements at the Z resonance; (3) the Goldstone Boson Equivalence Theorem; (4) the Standard Model theory of the Higgs boson; (5) the future program of precision study of the Higgs boson.
