Strong Nuclear Flux

  1. Jul 23, 2006 #1

    [tex]q_c[/tex] - Colour Charge
    [tex]s_0[/tex] - Strong Nuclear Permittivity of free space
    [tex]\Phi_S = \oint S \cdot dA = \frac{q_c}{s_0}[/tex]

    Does a gluon carry a Strong Nuclear Flux?

    Gluons carry colour charge, but do not obey Gauss's law.
    What on earth is "Strong Nuclear Permittivity of free space"?

    The basic definition of Strong Nuclear Permittivity is the energy density in a strong field (strong flux).

    Strong Nuclear Permittivity of free space:
    [tex]s_0 = \frac{2 u_0}{S_0^2}[/tex]

    Does a gluon carry a Strong Nuclear Flux?

    [tex]u_0 = \frac{s_0 S_0^2}{2}[/tex]

    What is a typical quark-quark gluon strong field strength?

    What is a typical gluon energy density?

    Because colour charges do not interact via fields?

    Because the range of the surface area under geometry is limited?
    [tex]\Phi_S = \oint S \cdot dA \; \; \; dA \leq dA_s[/tex]

    "Gluons carry colour charge, but do not obey Gauss's law."

    Because colour charges do not interact via fields?

    Ans:
    In QCD, gluons interact directly with other gluons in a zero range interaction of either 3 or 4 gluon fields at the same point.
