Study of hadron physics

  1. Mar 14, 2014 #1
    Dear all;
    why we study hadron physics? For instance different people calculates the decay constant of mesons using different methods and they get approximately the same result, the difference is too small. So why not people they apply the same mathematical method?

    To have a cross-check for the results?
    In addition, it is often not clear what exactly is the easiest/most accurate method to calculate something, so several approaches are used.

    To understand the objects we are made of. And to look for deviations from existing theories.
