Vector Mesons and the Electromagnetic Interactions of Hadrons

Conference paper
Part of the Acta Physica Austriaca book series (FEWBODY, volume 4/1967)


Since about three years information on the interaction of photons and electrons with nucleons is coming in from the electron accelerators in the Multi-GeV-region. I would like to discuss the question how this has improved our understanding of the electromagnetic (e.m.) interaction of the hadrons, i.e. of the strongly interacting particles. My procedure will be to consider several experimental results under the uniform aspect of a single model, the vector meson dominance model (VDM) of the e.m. interaction of hadrons [1].
