The Current Theory of Strong Interactions and the Problem of Quark Confinement

  • Stanley Mandelstam


Before I begin my paper, let me express the hope and, indeed, the conviction, that this volume will prove a worthy memorial to Professor Yourgrau, whose tragic death occurred so soon after the commencement of his “retirement”—a word that, in this case, would have been most misleading. While I have not seen the contents at the time of writing, I have no doubt that the volume will express the broadness, variety and depth of his interests, and his devotion to academic learning.
