The quotation by B. T. Feld at the beginning of the chapter is from his book Models of Elementary Particles, Blaisdell Publishing Company, Waltham (1969), page 361. References to the quark model of Gell-Mann and Zweig are given at the end of Chapter 4. The proliferation of quarks in recent times is discussed, for example, by J. D. Bjorken in the SLAC report SLAC-PUB-1668, which is a symposium summary of the International Symposium on Lepton and Photon Interactions, Stanford University, Stanford, California, August, 1975. For an interesting review of contemporary quark models, see Y. Nambu, “The Confinement of Quarks”, Scientific American, November, 1976, page 48. Also see D. B. Lichtenberg, J. G. Willis, and J. T. Kiehl, Physical Review Letters 39, 1592 (1977), “Interpretation of the T(9.5) as Evidence for Another Quark”.Google Scholar
