Since baryons (e.g. protons, neutrons) are composite particles it should be possible to split them apart. If so, is it then possible to extract useable energy out of the splitting of baryons in ...
CP violation (as I understand it) allows for non-conservation of baryon number, and thus can contribute (at least a little) to the baryon asymmetry in the universe today (far more matter than ...
Let's temporarily ignore spin. If 3 denotes the standard representation of SU(3), 1 the trivial rep, 8 the adjoint rep and 10 the symmetric cube then it's well-known that 3 x 3 x 3 = 1 + 8 + 8 + 10 ...
I'm trying to simulate inclusive $\chi_c$ production in $p \bar p$ collisions at very low energies (~ 5.5 GeV) using Pythia8 event generator. Leaving aside problems bounded with applicability of ...
At present the only way we can produce anti-matter is through high powered collisions. New matter is created from the energy produced in these collisions and some of them are anti-matter particles ...
What is the correct term for the “polarity” of matter (matter vs. antimatter)? Are fractional polarities allowed?
What is the correct term for the "polarity" of matter (matter vs. antimatter)? Are neutral polarities allowed? (1,0,-1) Are fractional polarities allowed?
Or in proton-electron collision. To destroy is to turn into other particles, not baryons. In context of the baryon asymmetry.
