We propose that a strongly interacting particle is a finite region of space to which fields are confined. The confinement is accomplished in a Lorentz-invariant way by endowing the finite region with a constant energy per unit volume, $B$. We call this finite region a "bag." The contained fields may be either fermions or bosons and may have any spin; they may or may not be coupled to one another. Equations of motion and boundary conditions are obtained from a variational principle. The…

Self-Consistent Quark Bags

We do not understand the forces that keep the quarks (semi-) permanently bound in hadrons. The known experimental properties of quark bound states — hadrons — appear self-contradictory, when

Charge screening and an extended model of hadrons

SummaryIt is shown that the system in which the quark is interacting with the charged Higgs scalar via each minimal coupling to an Abelian gauge field allows for axially symmetric localized static

Particle model from quantum foundations

Some ideas are explored concerning the structure of elementary particles (specifically, leptons and hadrons), formulated within the context of a theory of the objective collapse of the wavefunction

A speculative description of the two-nucleon interaction

SummaryThe nucleon-nucleon potential is deduced in the framework of the nonrelativistic meson exchange theory starting from a well-defined nucleon model. The nucleon model is built up as the

Geometrically confined thermal field theory: Finite size corrections and phase transitions

Motivated by the recent shocking results from RHIC and LHC that show quark-gluon plasma signatures in small systems, we study a simple model of a massless, noninteracting scalar field confined with


Thermodynamical properties of nuclear matter are studied in the framework of an effective many-body field theory at finite temperature, considering the Sommerfeld approximation. We perform the

Scale invariance and chiral noninvariance in a four-dimensional interacting field theory

SummaryA variant of the « finite » field theory approach of Gell-Mann and Low is presented in a massless quark model with singlet gluons. A solution is exhibited for which the gluon wave function

Bound States of Fermions in External and Self-Consistent Fields

The properties of spin-1/2 fields in strong external potentials are investigated, motivated by the question ‘What happens to the electron orbitals as the charge of the nucleus is increased without

Descriptions of hadronic structure

I would like to devote this lecture to discussing two topics: the evolution of the quark model and the problem of quark confinement. By way of introduction, however, I must stress that after ten
