Understanding Quarks


Benjamin Houde (Editor)

Series: Physics Research and Technology

BISAC: SCI055000

This book includes four chapters about quarks, which are a type of elementary particle and a fundamental constituent of matter. Chapter One is devoted to spectroscopy study of long-range quark-lepton strong interaction in solids as well as the origin of the mass of elementary particles. Chapter Two studies the production of top-quark pairs with a Higgs boson. Chapter Three begins with a brief historical outline of the development of the events that led to our understanding of quarks and analyzes the three families of quarks. Chapter Four discusses strange quark matter and strange quark stars as candidates for dark matter based on the Bodmer-Terazawa-Witten hypothesis.
