13 Coloring in the strong forces

While we began to understand how to construct renormalizable theories for the weak intractions, the strong interactions were still shrouded in mystery. They looked much less controllable. Investigators did learn how to cause various particles to collide with each other with increasing collision energies, using new and ever more powerful acceleration machines, resulting in a much better understanding of the curious internal structure of the hadrons. What was immediately obvious was that the list of resonances became longer and longer. A resonance could best be described as a particle that in all respects resembles one of the particles of Table 1, only its mass is bigger and often its spin is greater. The resonances ...
