Transverse Lattice Theory of Quantum Chromodynamics
Quantum chromodynamics (QCD) has been proposed as a complete Lagrangian field theory for the description of strongly interacting particles. The theory consists of colored quarks coupled to a color octet of Yang-Mills vector bosons. This theory can be solved in the short distance region using renormalization group methods as the effective-coupling constant vanished in this limit. This “asymptotic freedon” at short distance provides a fundamental basis for understanding the success of the quark-parton phenomenology.
