"Zwei Dinge erfüllen das Gemüth mit immer neuer und zunehmender Bewunderung und Ehrfurcht, je öfter und anhaltender sich das Nachdenken damit beschäftigt: der bestirnte Himmel über mir und das moralische Gesetz in mir.
Beide darf ich nicht als in Dunkelheiten verhüllt, oder im Überschwenglichen, außer meinem Gesichtskreise suchen und blos vermuthen; ich sehe sie vor mir und verknüpfe sie unmittelbar mit dem Bewusstsein meiner Existenz."
Immanuel Kant, Kritik der praktischen Vernunft, Beschluß (Riga 1788)

2001 First Prize of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Dubna

awarded January 19, 2001 by the Scientific Council of the JINR Dubna for the project
"Theoretical support of experiments at the Z resonance on precision tests of the standard model (Project ZFITTER)"

An old story: LFV Z decays

Here you may find some references from the Eighties on flavor-nondiagonal Z-boson decays in the Standard Model (with massive, mixing neutrinos or top quarks in the loop).

Some Fortran programs:

Because there happened misunderstandings about the conditions of use of open-source software, it might not be appropriate to further distribute software using this platform. All the corresponding links have been deactivated. In some cases you may find the programs of interest in the program repository of "Computer Physics Communications", or you may contact me [ or co-authors] directly.
