In the previous chapter we learned how deep inelastic scattering may be used as a tool to study the structure and composition of the nucleons. Complementary information about the structure of the nucleons and of other strongly interacting objects (the hadrons) can be obtained from the spectroscopy of these particles. This gives us information about the strong interaction and its field quanta which describe the internal dynamics of the hadrons and the forces acting between them.
