Interaction of Neutrons and Protons

  title={Interaction of Neutrons and Protons},
  author={D. Iwanenko},
As electrons and positrons are expelled in some reactions from nuclei, we can try to treat these light particles like the photons emitted by atoms. Then the interaction of heavy particles (protons, neutrons) can be considered as taking place via light particles described by the equations of a ψ-field in the same manner as electromagnetic, for example, Coulomb, interaction takes place through an electromagnetic field, or photons. 

Interaction of Heavy Nuclear Particles

SOME time ago, it was suggested that the interaction between neutrons and protons goes on via particles of small mass—electrons (positrons) and neutrinos—somewhat in the same way as electromagnetic

Nonperturbative Treatment of Magnetic Interactions at Short Distances and a Simple Magnetic Model of Matter

In these lectures I discuss some properties of large magnetic dipole fields, the phenomenon of magnetic resonances in dipole fields, and a dynamical model of hadrons and heavy leptons based on

Yukawa's Heavy Quantum and the Mesotron (1935-1937)

The unified “standard model’ of strong and weak nuclear forces of the mid-1930s was based on the emission and/or absorption of an electron and a neutrino, the so-called Fermi field, by the proton and

A Discussion on $ \beta $-Type of Nuclear Transmutations: 4 March 1937. Opening Address

The most important and interesting feature of the β -ray disintegration is the energy distribution of the emitted electrons. It is now well established that these electrons form a continuous energy

Measuring Antineutrino Oscillations with the MINOS Experiment

Abstract The MINOS experiment ran with a dedicated muon antineutrino beam from September 2009 to March 2010 and obtained data corresponding to 1.71 × 10 20 protons on target. A summary of the

Werner Heisenberg and the Beginning of Nuclear Physics

Great advances in science alter our view of the world. Galileo Galilei's theory of motion, Albert Einstein's theory of special relativity and Werner Heisenberg's invention of quantum mechanics, with

A nonstandard model

An elementary-particle picture developed primarily by Barut as an alternative to the standard model is re-examined. This model is formulated on the basis of strong short-range magnetic interactions
