Parity-violation with electrons: Theoretical perspectives
I review recent progress and developments in parity-violating electron scattering as it bears on three topics: strange quarks and hadron structure, electroweak radiative corrections, and physics beyond the Standard Model. I also discuss related developments in parity-conserving scattering with transversely polarized electrons as a probe of two-photon processes. I conclude with a perspective on the future of the field.
