Introduction to Gauge Theories of the Strong, Weak, and Electromagnetic Interactions

  • Chris Quigg
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 66)


Arthur Wightman (1968) wrote in the thirteenth edition of the Encyclopaedia Brittanica that “Running through the theoretical speculation since World War II has been the idea that the observed particles are not really elementary but merely the states of some underlying single dynamical system. Such speculations had not led very far by the 1960s.” The past dozen years have seen a revolution in the prevailing view of elementary particle physics. We now believe that a fundamental description of subnuclear physics must be based upon the idea that strongly-interacting particles (hadrons) are composed of quarks. Together with leptons, such as the electron and neutrino, quarks seem to be the elementary particles--at least at the present limits of resolution. It also appears that all of the fundamental interactions of the quarks and leptons are consequences of various gauge symmetries and may be attributed to the exchange of vector bosons.
