Quantum Chromodynamics

This chapter presents experimental results for the QCD lagrangian. It shows that the phenomenology of strong interactions is indeed described by an unbroken Yang–Mills theory based on a non-abelian gauge symmetry. Quarks are spin-1/2 fermions, while gluons are spin-1 bosons and the strong coupling is flavour independent.

Keywords:   quark-spin, gluon-spin, flavour independence, strong coupling, QCD lagrangian
