By D.B. Lichtenberg

This paintings originated in a chain of lectures on meson and baryon ex­ mentioned states which I gave on the Stanford Linear Accelerator heart within the fall of 1962. The notes of those lectures have been issued as a Stanford Uni­ versity record (SLAC-13) in March, 1963. within the fall of 1963, I gave a revised set of lectures on meson and baryon spectroscopy at Indiana collage. In either circumstances, the talks got basically for experi­ psychological physicists. In getting ready the notes of those talks for book, i've got further a few introductory fabric on pions, nucleons, kaons, and hyperons. My major emphasis is at the experimental proof about the spectros­ reproduction of the mesons and baryons and at the use of conservation legislation of their interpretation. i've got both pointed out in short or passed over completely reasons which depend upon dynamical types. even though i've got given a few evidence concerning the electromagnetic and vulnerable decays of a few mesons and baryons, i haven't mentioned the speculation of those decays. this isn't a accomplished assessment of the topic of the strongly interacting debris, and the record of references isn't really whole. additionally, i haven't continually committed time to a subject matter in share to its impor­ tance, yet have spent extra time on subject matters that have fairly me. however, i am hoping that i've got supplied an invaluable precis of crucial proof concerning the spectroscopy of the mesons and baryons.

However, 40 since there seems to be no way to measure these distributions directly, this concept may have only pictorial usefulness. 4 from the review of HAND, MILLER and WILSON (1963). 2 0 5 " "" 10 I " " .........

The A hyperon The A hyperon ** was probably discovered in cosmic rays (ROCHESTER 1947) at about the same time as the pion was first seen. FRANZINETTI and MORPURGO (1957) have given an account of the discovery of the A and other strange particles, and have discussed methods by which the properties of these particles were obtained. A more recent discussion of the strange particles has been given by ADAIR and FOWLER (1963). * Previous to the paper by DAY, SNOW, and SUCHER, it was thought that the reached the 2p state by making radiative transitions.

The total angular momentum of the deuteron is ] = 1. 43 Since no bound state of two protons or two neutrons exists, the deuteron is an isosinglet. An I = 0 state composed of two particles with 1=1/2 is an antisymmetric state. Therefore the isospin wave function of the deuteron is antisymmetric under the interchange of the isospin coordinates of the two nucleons. Since the wave function of the deuteron must be antisymmetric under the interchange of all the coordinates of the proton and neutron, the wave function must be symmetric under the simultaneous interchange of the space and spin coordinates of the two nucleons.
