Elementary Particles. The Commonwealth and International by A. A. Sokolov

By A. A. Sokolov

Trouble-free debris bargains with the physics of simple debris resembling protons, neutrons, electrons, and photons. themes lined contain the prediction and discovery of latest trouble-free debris; nucleons and pions; beta-disintegration and the invention of the neutrino; and the matter of non-conservation of parity. the invention of "abandoned and unusual" debris known as resonons can also be mentioned. This ebook is created from six chapters and starts off with an outline of atomic physics and straightforward debris, by means of an research of the prediction and discovery of recent easy debris comparable to the positron. the subsequent bankruptcy is dedicated to the query of nuclear forces, with emphasis on nucleons and pions. Experiments during which protons and neutrons have been bombarded with electrons are defined. next chapters discover beta-disintegration and the invention of the neutrino, in addition to the matter of non-conservation of parity. the ultimate bankruptcy considers simple debris often called resonons, which convey a wierd habit and have been stumbled on within the area of excessive energies. This monograph might be a worthwhile source for physicists in addition to scholars and researchers in atomic physics.

20) For an experimental detection of the azimuthal asymmetry, it is necessary to install two counters in a plane perpendicular to the The Problem of Non-conservation of Parity 49 spin of the neutron, in order to register the momenta of the simultaneously appearing electron and antineutrino; experimentally it is much simpler to determine the momentum, not of the antineutrino, but of the proton The phenomenon of azimuthal asymmetry is related geometrically to the different orientations of the two loops, just as in the case of polar asymmetry (see (16)).

The sense of the circular polarisation. According to this theory, the neutrino should itself be considered as a photon, having a lefthanded circular polarisation (left-handed particle), and the antineutrino as a right-handed polarised photon (right-handed particle). The difference between the neutrino and polarised photons consists only in the value of their spin. For the photon the spin is equal to unity (in units Ä), and for the neutrino the spin is equal to one-half. , a "hole" in the background of particles with E < 0) are shown in Fig.

In the case when there are no particles, the value of b+b is equal to zero. In exactly the same way, the operator b+, being the multiplier of the exponent eiEt, is a creation operator, since the value of bb+ for fermions is non-vanishing only in the case when particles are absent. , the left-handed neutrino is converted into a right-handed one, which can be demonstrated by means of a mirror placed perpendicularly to the momentum (Fig. 11). , s'r = — s'1 = sr = const. 43 The Problem of Non-conservation of Parity in helicity of the neutrino as non-invariance of theory relative to strong time reversal (symbolically T Φ const).
