Abstract

Even if QCD is the correct theory of strong interactions, we are still a long way off from being able to actually calculate hadronic properties, such as the masses and couplings of observed particles, from the fundamental lagrangian of the theory. Since the determination of the spectrum of QCD is a problem which presumably will never be solved exactly one must of course introduce either some approximation scheme or some model (usually both). Several such schemes or models have been developed over the years. Let me mention, in particular

  • Monte Carlo simulations on a lattice

  • bag models

  • potential models

  • QCD sum rules

Keywords

  • Heavy Quark
  • Operator Product Expansion
  • Background Field
  • Quark Condensate
  • Gluon Condensate

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
