Mesotron Decays and the Role of Anomalies

Preprint English OPEN
Bardeen, William A.;
(2007)

Puzzles associated with Yukawa's mesotron theory of nuclear interactions led to the discovery of "anomalies" in quantum field theory. I will discuss some of the remarkable consequences of these anomalies in the physics of elementary particles.
