1. Introduction and Summary
The objective of this paper is to explore some consequences
of the following hypothesis:
Hadrons are composite objects; their "constituents" can
be observed as "particles" in a reference frame moving with
the velocity of light, (Feynman's "parton" hypothesis )
This hypothesis receives support from several facts. As a
reminder to the reader, we briefly list some of them.
a.) Low-lying (therefore, well-identifiable) levels of the
hadron spectrum exhibit an "oscillator-like" structure, resembling
low-energy excitations of a complicated many-body system (e.g.
b.) Various successful phenomenological modelsl,2) of had-
ronic reactions suggest an underlying many-body structure of had-
c.) Duality both in hadron and lepton induced reactions can
be qualitatively understood by invoking a compositeness hypothesis.
(This was particularly emphasized by Lovelace for hadronic reac-
tions and by the present authors for lepton induced ones. )
d.) Gursey and Orfanidis have shown that a large number of
-.the observed features of hadronic reactions can be understood and
unified by adapting the kinematics to a "lightlike" reference
frame (LF).5) Their results generalize earlier calculations per-
formed in the framework of various specific models6) and strongly
suggest that a "lightlike" description of hadronic processes may
considerably simplify matters or - possibly - it is- their only
