Colour confinement

The term confinement indicates that coloured free particles do not exist in Nature. Besides valence quarks, a hadron contains a population of more quarks and gluons. From the (b) side of the Figure in the previous post (*) it is possible to infer that the strong interaction between two quarks enhances with the increasing of their … Continue reading Colour confinement

Strong Interactions and quarks

Quantum chromodynamics (QCD) is the gauge theory describing strong interactions between quarks. It constitutes a fundamental theory within the Standard Model and it is responsible for the portion. Weak and electromagnetic interactions are considered unified in the single symmetry group where , the weak hypercharge, is the generator of the group that is given by … Continue reading Strong Interactions and quarks
