These lecture notes cover the basics of Quantum Field Theory (QFT) and peculiarities in the construction of the Electroweak (EW) sector of the Standard Model (SM). In addition, the present status, issues, and prospects of the SM are discussed.

Neutrino, parity violaton, V-A: a historical survey: https://arxiv.org/abs/1812.11629
A concise story of the rise of the four fermion theory of the universal weak interaction and its experimental confirmation, with a special emphasis on the problems related to parity violation. 32 pages
Touschek with AdA in Orsay and the first direct observation of electron-positron collisions: https://arxiv.org/abs/1812.11847
We describe how the first direct observation of electron-positron collisions took place in 1963-1964 at the Laboratoire de l'Accélérateur Linéaire d'Orsay, in France, with the storage ring AdA, which had been proposed and constructed in the Italian National Laboratories of Frascati in 1960, under the guidance of Bruno Touschek. The obstacles and successes of the two and a half years during which the feasibility of electron-positron colliders was proved will be illustrated using archival and forgotten documents, in addition to transcripts from interviews with Carlo Bernardini, Peppino Di Giugno, Mario Fascetti, Francois Lacoste, and Jacques Haïssinski.
Comments: 64 pages, 35 figures, in memory of Carlo Bernardini (1930-2018) and Bruno Touschek (1921-1978)
