Meson and Quark Degrees of Freedom in Nuclear Matter and Finite Nuclei

  • Qi-Ren Zhang
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 216a)


Since the middle of fifties, people had tried to build a fundamental nuclear theory on the basis of nonrelativistic quantum many-body theory for nucleons interacting each other by two-body nuclear forces. But in the late seventies, it turned out that this is impossible1,2. Both relativity and meson degrees of freedom should be considered. Because of the quark substructure of nucleon, logically the quark degrees of freedom in nuclei should also be considered. This last point is strengthened by the discovery of EMC effect
