About this title

Synopsis:

In Quest of the Quark reinforces atomic theory for high school students, and links it with Elementary Particle Physics in a structured way that encourages literacy without "heavy" mathematics, by interrelating the particles which make up subatomic particles. At the beginning of the universe matter/energy were one, and then in the first few microseconds of time, they split apart or separated, a process called "symmetry splitting" in Particle Physics, or more commonly "The Big Bang" The particles of matter, called fermions, are the "bricks" of the universe, and the bosons which transmit the forces of energy, the "mortar" which binds them together. This fundamental view of our timecontinuum is quite elegant in its organization, and startling in its beauty, as the worlds within worlds of fundamental particles are explored.
