Abstract

This latest in a series of workshops on parity-violating electron scattering comes at a momentous time in the history of this subject. The first experiments to determine strange form factors of the nucleon have produced intriguing final results, and several powerful new experiments are now producing data. In addition, the precision of the technique has been improving and new experiments testing the electroweak theory have reported remarkably precise data. There has also been a great deal of progress on both the theory of strange form factors and interpretation of electroweak symmetry tests.
