Hadrodynamics with the Elusive Quarks

  • Giuliano Preparata
Part of the The Subnuclear Series book series (SUS, volume 13)


Today it has become almost inconceivable to talk about hadrons and their interactions without thinking about their so-called constituents: the quarks. Their number, as we are witnessing, is having an ominous tendency to increase under the effect of the exciting discoveries of new particles and unexpected lepton yields in e+e− and ν-nucleon collisions. However, I believe that after the experimental situation will more or less settle the usefulness of the quark notion will definitely be preserved even after some possibly inevitable proliferation.
