In "A Theory of Quantum Space-time" we constructed a form of field theory in which Feynman diagrams describe real particle interactions, not virtual ones. In this paper we outline a theory of discrete interactions based on hadron field operators which bind quark in co- ordinate space, but not momentum space, and offer explanations for the strong force, jets and Zweig's rule. As yet no calculations have been carried out on the predictions of the theory, but we indicate possibilities for testable… 



A Theory of Quantum Space-time

An interpretation and re-formulation of modern physics which removes the presumption of the space-time continuum, and bases physical theory on a small number of rational and empirical principles.

A Pre-Geometric Model Exhibiting Physical Law

We describe a substructure for matter in which metric relations are not assumed as properties of a physical manifold, and instead the metric of general relativity is found in configurations of
