By Harald Fritzsch,Murray Gell-Mann

Today it really is recognized that the atomic nuclei are composed of smaller parts, the quarks. A quark is usually certain with different quarks, forming a baryon or with an antiquark, forming a meson. The quark version used to be first postulated in 1964 by way of Murray Gell-Mann — who coined the identify “quark” from James Joyce's novel Finnegans Wake — and by means of George Zweig, who then labored at CERN. within the current conception of sturdy interactions — Quantum Chromodynamics proposed by way of H Fritzsch and Gell-Mann in 1972 — the forces that bind the quarks jointly are end result of the trade of 8 gluons.

On the fiftieth anniversary of the quark version, this necessary quantity appears to be like again on the advancements and achievements within the straightforward particle physics that eventuated from that stunning version. Written through a global staff of exotic physicists, each one of whom have made significant advancements within the box, the amount offers an important review of the current country to the teachers and researchers.
