Correlations and Strong Interactions
Although Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) is considered at present to be the best candidate for a theory of strong interactions, it is not directly applicable to the most interesting and important aspects of strong interactions, i.e. to multiparticle production, which is a “soft” process. Instead one uses lattice QCD which predicts in principle the hadronic mass spectrum. The fact that the main content of Hagedorn’s statistical bootstrap is also the mass spectrum proves the intuitive power of this approach, developed many years before the advent of QCD.
