The weak hypercharge in particle physics is a quantum number relating the electrical charge and the third component of weak isospin, and is similar to the Gell-Mann–Nishijima formula of strong interactions. It is the generator of the U(1) component of the electroweak gauge group, SU(2)xU(1) and its associated quantum field B mixes with the W3 electroweak quantum field to produce the observed Z0 gauge boson and the photon of quantum electrodynamics.
Weak hypercharge, usually written as YW, is defined as:
