Quantum Chromodynamics

  • N. S. Craigie

Abstract

In this article I hope to give a brief outline of a possible theory of the nuclear force and the strong interactions between elementary particles, which we suppose is responsible for nuclear matter. The theory I will be describing is known as quantum chromodynamics because of its association with a new kind of nuclear charge, called, colour and its resemblance to quantum electrodynamics. The first section will be of a more general kind, perhaps expressing a little too optimistically our views on what this theory is likely to achieve, based on our present technical understanding of how it works. The rest of the sections will be of a more technical character, in which some particular aspects of QCD as they are being worked out at present are discussed. I have provided some details in the written text which were not presented in full in the lectures.
