Wave-Particle Duality in a Quark Model

  • Stanley P. Gudder
Part of the Fundamental Theories of Physics book series (FTPH, volume 3)


A quark model based on finite-dimensional quantum mechanics is presented. Observables associated with color, flavor, charge, and spin are considered. Using these observables, we construct quark and baryon Hamiltonians. Wave-particle dualities in this model are pointed out.
