Effects of a Neutral Intermediate Boson in Semileptonic Processes

The observable effects of a neutral intermediate vector boson in semileptonic processes are considered in the context of a proposed renormalizable theory of the weak and electromagnetic interactions. With strange particles neglected, this theory allows the calculation of neutral-current form factors in terms of charged-current form factors and electromagnetic form factors. The results are neither confirmed nor refuted by present data. One possible method of incorporating the strange particles is briefly discussed.
