Abstract

Let us first deal with mesons made of the three lightest quarks u, d, s and \(\overline {u}\), \(\overline {d}\), \(\overline {s}\). As illustrated in Fig.  2.1, with three flavours and three antiflavours one can construct a nonet of mesons for each orbital mode, each vibrational mode and for each parallel and antiparallel spin.
