  • When nuclear encounters take place at very high energies, say of 100 GeV or more, then usually many mesons are produced. This does not necessarily mean that already in a nucleon-nucleon collision many mesons are produced because it might be that a production of many mesons takes place through a cascade process inside a nucleus. This was the view which was for a long time held by Heitler. On the other hand, I think there has recently been pretty good evidence that also in a single nucleon… CONTINUE READING
