Electroproduction scaling in an asymptotically free theory of strong interactions by Howard Georgi( )
1 edition published in 1974 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
We analyze electroproduction in a non-Abelian gauge model of the strong interactions using the techniques of Christ, Hasslacher, and Mueller. The theory is asymptotically free and consistent with scaling up to logarithms. All logarithmic factors appear as inverse powers of ln(-q^2) and hence vanish as -q^2→∞. When -q^2 gets very large, the structure functions become strongly peaked near x=0, and as -q^2→∞ approach the singular scaling functions 2x F1(x)=F2(x)=aδ(x), where the constant a is determined. In a strong-interaction model based on the gauge group SU(3) with three triplets of fractionally charged quarks, a=0.16

Clean tests of quantum chromodynamics in μp scattering by Howard Georgi( )
1 edition published in 1978 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Hard gluon bremsstrahlung in μp scattering produces final-state hadrons with a large component of momentum transverse to the virtual-photon direction. Quantum chromodynamics can be used to predict not only the absolute value of the transverse momentum, but also its angular distribution relative to the muon scattering plane. The angular correlations should be insensitive to nonperturbative effects

Precocious scaling, rescaling, and ξ scaling by Howard Georgi( )
1 edition published in 1976 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
All effects of target and constituent masses on the Q2 dependence of lepton-hadron scattering are computable in an expansion in g(Q2), the effective coupling of asymptotic freedom. To leading order, these are summarized by a "best" scaling variable, ξ, which depends on the particular process. The results relevant to low Q2 and charm threshold are discussed
Freedom at moderate energies: Masses in color dynamics by Howard Georgi( )
1 edition published in 1976 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
We discuss the effects of quark and target masses in inclusive lepton-hadron scattering, assuming a color SU(3) gauge theory of strong interactions. Our tools are the renormalization group, suitably extended to include quark masses, and the operator-product expansion. We argue that the best renormalization procedure is to specify all parameters in the Lagrangian (coupling constants and masses) as well as wave-function normalizations at Euclidean momenta of scale M. We use the renormalization group to develop an understanding of the relation between current-algebra and constituent-quark masses. In the operator-product expansion, we use the equations of motion to eliminate operators with D, D2, etc. acting on a quark field. We order the expansion as a power series in the gauge coupling constant as it occurs in the coefficient functions. We predict approximate scaling in a new variable ξ≠x, which depends on Q2 and the quark and target masses. We also discuss the distribution of antiquarks and heavy quarks in the nucleon
Flavor goniometry by proton decay by A De Rújula( Book )

Andrew Pickering interviews conducted for his book CONSTRUCTING QUARKS by Andrew Pickering( )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Consists of interviews with thirty-six particle physicists, conducted as background material for his book CONSTRUCTING QUARKS: A SOCIOLOGICAL HISTORY OF PARTICLE PHYSICS, published in 1984. Pickering sought to document the founding and growth of research traditions structured around the quark concept, therefore, almost all interviews focused upon the interviewee's overall research career rather than narrowly defined historical episodes. They cover the period from 1964 when the quark model was formulated to 1980 when quark theories had come to dominate research practice in high-energy physics. More specific topics include J/psi color models, Fairbank's fractional charges, and the Price magnetic monopoole. Participants include: Henry Abarbanel, Luis W. Alvarez, Barry Barish, A. O. Barut, John Bell, James Bjorken, Elliott D. Bloom, Gordon Feldman, Geoffrey Chew, Sidney Coleman, A. De Rujula, Sid Drell, John Ellis, P.G.O. Freund, Erwin Gabathuler, Mary Gaillard, H. Georgi, Gerson Goldhaber, Sheldon Glashow, Peter Higgs, Roman Jackiw, R. L. Jaffe, P. V. Langshoff, Ed Lofgren, Seymour Joseph Lindenbaum, Francis Eugene Low, Y. Nambu, Robert B. Palmer, and Hugh David Politzer, Charles Prescott, P. Buford Price, Chris Quigg, B. Richter, A. Salam, G. t'Hooft, and C. N. Yang
