Do nucleons dissolve

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A model is presented which describes multiquark, nuclear-like systems in a manner consistent with QCD, and with nuclear properties. Within the model, it is found that quasi-nucleon structures describe the minimum energy state of the system. This result is due to a balance between quarks lowering their kinetic energy by spreading out through the system, and lowering their color-magnetic spin-spin interaction energy by forming nucleon-like clusters. A strong core repulsion is evident, as is a realistic dip in the central matter density of the /sup 4/He-like, 12-quark system. 4 refs., 5 figs.
