The pressure distribution inside the proton

  title={The pressure distribution inside the proton},
  author={Volker Burkert and Latifa Elouadrhiri and F. Girod},
The proton, one of the components of atomic nuclei, is composed of fundamental particles called quarks and gluons. Gluons are the carriers of the force that binds quarks together, and free quarks are never found in isolation—that is, they are confined within the composite particles in which they reside. The origin of quark confinement is one of the most important questions in modern particle and nuclear physics because confinement is at the core of what makes the proton a stable particle and… Expand
Proton internal pressure distribution suggests a simple proton structure
Abstract Understanding the origin of quark confinement in hadrons remains one of the most challenging problems in modern physics. Recently, the pressure distribution inside the proton was measuredExpand

An Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) in USA is currently discussed as a next-generation facility for high-energy nuclear physics. The main goal of the EIC is to study fundamental questions of QuantumExpand
Computation of the masses, energies and internal pressures of hadrons, mesons and bosons via the Rotating Lepton Model
Abstract The rotating lepton model (RLM) of composite particles is used in conjunction with special relativity, the equivalence principle of inertial and gravitational mass, and the de BroglieExpand
Probing gravity at sub-femtometer scales through the pressure distribution inside the proton
Abstract Recently, a measurement of the pressure distribution experienced by the quarks inside the proton has found a strong repulsive (positive) pressure at distances up to 0.6 femtometers from itsExpand
QCD analysis of near-threshold photon-proton production of heavy quarkonium
The near threshold photo or electroproduction of heavy vector quarkonium off the proton is studied in quantum chromodynamics. Similar to the high-energy limit, the production amplitude can beExpand
Measurability of pressure inside the proton
This study repeats the procedure using more flexible parameterization by neural networks to improve the analysis of the uncertainty and demonstrates that the experimental data used by Burkert et al.1 are actually consistent with zero quark pressure in the proton. Expand

Measurement of deeply virtual compton scattering beam-spin asymmetries.
The beam-spin asymmetries in the hard exclusive electroproduction of photons on the proton were measured over a wide kinematic range and with high statistical accuracy, and can be used to constrain significantly the generalized parton distributions of the nucleon in the valence quark sector. Expand
