Our understanding of the fundamental interactions -electrowea k and strong forces is described by a theory which is now known as the Standard Model of particle physics . In this thesis, I study the electroweak sector of the Standard Model. Using the Feynman rule s of quantum electrodynamics, I derive cross-sections for e − e + −→ μ − μ + and for Compton Scattering i.e, γ + e − −→ γ + e − . First I obtain the cross-section for the scattering with unpolarized lepto ns and then to get a more detailed understanding of the process I re-study the scattering with pola rized leptons. I give the details of the calculations and present some of the results involving gamma mat rices and spinor sums in the appendix.
