Weak Interactions Made Simple

Authors: P. R. Silva

A very simplified way of calculating the lifetime of some elementary particles decaying through the weak interaction is presented. The method makes use of a non-linear version of the Klein-Gordon-Yukawa equation, combined with the time-energy uncertainty principle. Although the analytical relations evaluated in this work do not always reproduce those usually found in literature, numerical estimates of them agree with their respective experimental values.
