A. A. Sokolov's Elementary Particles. The Commonwealth and International PDF

By A. A. Sokolov

Simple debris offers with the physics of common debris akin to protons, neutrons, electrons, and photons. themes lined contain the prediction and discovery of recent undemanding debris; nucleons and pions; beta-disintegration and the invention of the neutrino; and the matter of non-conservation of parity. the invention of "abandoned and weird" debris referred to as resonons can also be mentioned. This booklet is constituted of six chapters and starts off with an outline of atomic physics and simple debris, through an research of the prediction and discovery of latest effortless debris akin to the positron. the following bankruptcy is dedicated to the query of nuclear forces, with emphasis on nucleons and pions. Experiments within which protons and neutrons have been bombarded with electrons are defined. next chapters discover beta-disintegration and the invention of the neutrino, besides the matter of non-conservation of parity. the ultimate bankruptcy considers straight forward debris referred to as resonons, which express an odd habit and have been chanced on within the sector of excessive energies. This monograph should be a worthwhile source for physicists in addition to scholars and researchers in atomic physics.

These facts can be satisfied if we use a four-component theory for describing the neutrino, which gives two types of solution (see footnote on page 41). If the first type of solution (the neutrino v is left-handed, and the antineutrino v is right-handed) refers to the electron-neutrino, then the second type of solution (neutrino v' is right-handed, and the antineutrino v' is left-handed) should refer to the muon-neutrino. In this case, decay of π-mesons will take place according to the scheme %~ ->μ~ + v' π+->μ++ν' whereby on the strength of the fact that the μ-meson and the neutrino are shot off in opposite directions, the helicity of μ-mesons should coincide with the helicity of the neutrino.

In the ultra-relativistic case (ß = 1), the extent of electron and positron polarisation should tend, obviously, towards 100%. If the G-coefficients are complex, then even a third phenomenon of non-conservation of parity is possible, which is related to the new charge asymmetry, which is introduced by the complex values of the G-coefficients in the matrix elements (14) and (15). As a result of investigating the decay of a polarised neutron, we find that the complex G-coefficients give an azimuthal asymmetry, the maximum of which lies in a plane perpendicular to the spin of the neutron l Θ = - 1, when the polar asymmetry (see (16)), in general, vanishes.

In the birth of nucléons, a second law should further be strictly observed, namely the Law of Conservation of Baryon Number: Yß = constant which is even more important in the theory of nucléons, since as a result of collision of a proton and a neutron, their transformation is forbidden into lighter particles (for example, into π + - and 7i°-mesons) although from the Law of Conservation of Electrical Charge only, this transformation should be quite possible. It follows from the Law of Conservation of Baryon Number that nucléons are stable particles, and only as a result of collision with antinucleons may they be transformed into lighter particles.
