About this title


This book describes our present knowledge of protons and neutrons. Experiments using high-energy electrons, muons, and neutrinos reveal that the proton is made up of point-like constituents, i.e. quarks. The strong forces that bind quarks together, gluons, are described in terms of the modern theory of quantum chromodynamics (QCD). Larger and newer particle accelerators provide an opportunity to see deeper into the proton and probe the interactions between quarks and gluons at shorter distances. An understanding of this detailed substructure and of the fundamental forces responsible is one of the keys to unraveling the physics of the structure of matter.

Book Description:

This analysis of the proton reveals that it is made up of quarks that are bound interactively together with gluons. Understanding this detailed substructure and the fundamental forces responsible for it is one of the keys to unraveling the physics of the structure of matter.

Store Description

Established in 1989 Bygone Books was originally an Antiquarian Bookshop located in Farnham, Surrey. We later moved to larger premises in Camberley and widened our range of stock. We closed the shop in 2002 due to increased overheads and now operate from private premises. We currently list about 7,500 books with about about the same number in storage. These are added to our database daily but at the present rate of progress will keep us occupied for at least another year. WE CAN BE CONTACTED ON 01252 660599 (in the UK)
