chromodynamics

[¦krō·mō·dī′nam·iks]
(particle physics)
A theory of the interaction between quarks carrying color in which the quarks exchange gluons in a manner analogous to the exchange of photons between charged particles in electrodynamics.

This will then be fully capable of producing the true universal equation of motion of the unified fields as a whole in a single package (including the electromagnetic Lorentz equation of motion and the chromodynamic Yang-Mills equation of motion) and the nature of pure geometric motion--kinemetricity--of the cosmos will be revealed.
If one assumes the electroweak theory is correct, a study of the weak nucleon-nucleon (NN) interaction has the potential to improve our understanding of the strongly interacting limit of quantum chromodynamics (QCD), which is clearly a problem of fundamental importance.
Japan) explains basic concepts and experimental foundations of the the unified theory of the electroweak interaction and quantum chromodynamics, known as the standard model of elementary particle physics, to graduate students pursuing a career as particle physicists or as physicists in other specialties.
Eight chapters address notations and conventions, calculational techniques in field theory and the status of quantum dynamics, global and local symmetries and the construction of non-abelian gauge theories, the strong interactions and the structure and tests of quantum chromodynamics, electroweak interactions and theory (including neutrino masses), extensions to the standard model, supersymmetry, extended gauge groups, and grand unification.
Gluons carry the strong nuclear force and are constantly being exchanged by the quarks, as described by the theory known as quantum chromodynamics, or QCD.
The cluster is used in numerical simulations of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) on a discrete space-time lattice (Lattice QCD).
The second volume continues with non-abelian gauge theories, quantum chromodynamics and the renormalization group, spontaneously broken symmetry, and weak interactions and the electroweak theory.
So the present paper does not aim to replicate the electro-weak model or the chromodynamics, which indeed would be useless and unexciting; nevertheless seems useful to propose a simplified approach aimed to show (i) that the fundamental interactions are inferable from eqs (1,1) only and (ii) that exists a unique conceptual root common to all fundamental interactions.
He has sought to primarily present only simple theoretical ideas and phenomenological models that are well supported by experimental data without going too deep into the underlying mathematical formalism, although he does include a chapter devoted to quantum chromodynamics and also includes discussion of recent ideas concerning the quark-gluon plasma and predictions concerning the results of collisions planned at the Large Hadron Collider in Europe.
