An Introduction to the Quark Model

Fri., Mar. 6, 2015 10:00 a.m. - Fri., Mar. 6, 2015 11:00 a.m.

Location: RIC 208

Abstract: A lecture at the 3rd and 4th year undergraduate level introducing the basics of the quark model.  The topic is a very rich one and we will only have a chance to scratch the surface of this fascinating topic.  You will be introduced to:

  • Gell-Mann and Zweig's SU(3) constituent quark model.
  • Color, the gluon, and confinement.
  • Evidence in favor of quarks and gluons from electron scattering experiments.

Speaker: Dr. Garth Huber, Department of Physics
