(p.6) 2 The Development Of QCD
Quantum Chromodynamics




Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews and puts into context the experiments which lead to the formulation of QCD. Starting from the static quark model, the phenomenology of deep inelastic scattering processes is introduced and used to derive and explain the quark parton model (QPM). Discussing in detail the conceptual problems of the QPM, the arguments that lead to the theory of strong interactions based on an SU(3) gauge symmetry are explained. The chapter concludes with the lagrangian of QCD.

Keywords:   static quark model, deep-inelastic scattering, partons, structure functions, parton densities, quark-parton-model, sum rules, scaling violations, QCD lagrangian
