Quark and gluon condensates in hadrons and in quark interactions and the role of the quark-antiquark pair in the structure of nuclei.- Quark effects in nuclear physics.- Chiral . This book covers a wide range of topics in nuclear physics, including nuclear structure, two- and three-body nuclear forces, strangeness nuclear physics, chiral symmetry, hadrons in dense medium, hidden local symmetry, heavy quark symmetry, cosmic neutrinos, nuclear double-beta decay, neutron stars, gravitational waves, renormalization group. Nuclear physics is an exciting, broadly faceted field. It spans a wide range of topics, reaching from nuclear structure physics to high-energy physics, astrophysics and medical physics (heavy ion tumor therapy). New developments are presented in this volume and thestatus of research is reviewed. A.
Mesons have a quark and an antiquark, and baryons must be build from three quarks through its peculiar symmetry. The first evidence of quarks is found () in an experiment at SLAC, where small pips inside the proton are seen. This gives additional impetus to develop a theory that incorporates some of the ideas already found: this is called QCD. The book gives students a broad perspective of the current understandings of the basic structures of matter from atoms, nucleus to leptons, quarks, and gluons along with the essential introductory quantum mechanics and special relativity. Nuclear Structure Theory provides a guide to nuclear structure theory. The book is comprised of 23 chapters that are organized into four parts; each part covers an aspect of nuclear structure theory. In the first part, the text discusses the experimentally observed phenomena, which nuclear structure theories need to look into and detail the information that supports those Edition: 1. The quarks are held together in the nucleus by the strong nuclear force. This acts only over a very short range, around 10 - 15 m and is also responsible for holding the neutrons and protons together in the nucleus. It is thought that the force is carried by the exchange of virtual particles called gluons!
The book focuses on the processes, reactions, and methodologies involved in high energy physics and nuclear structure. The selection first offers information on experiments on antinucleon-nucleon, baryonium, nucleon-nucleon, and dibaryons and the quark model pion and the goldstone pion. Get this from a library!
