New results from the NA49 experiment at CERN suggest that the onset of the transition to deconfined quarks and gluons has been observed at the lower end of the SPS energy region.
New measurements at RHIC provide further insight into heavy-ion collisions at high energies.
Johann Rafelski and Torleif Ericson recall Rolf Hagedorn's discovery of a limiting temperature - in effect a melting point for hadrons - and its influence on the physics of strong interactions.
Harald Fritsch reviews in 2003 Quantum Chromodynamics - High Energy Experiments and Theory.
Jeff Forshaw reviews in 2003 Pomeron Physics and QCD.
New measurements from the US Department of Energy's Jefferson Lab (JLab) in Virginia are challenging existing ideas on how quark-antiquark pairs are produced from "nothing" - that is, the vacuum.
The Hadron Structure 2002 conference covered topics ranging from spin studies to relativistic nuclear physics, as Dusan Bruncko and Jozef Urbán report.
A new technique for cooling neutrons has been pioneered in Japan and offers the promise of an intense source of ultracold neutrons.
A new experiment at the Frascati laboratory's φ-factory is set to investigate the strange world of the hypernucleus.
Thirty years after quantum chromodynamics was invented, tackling its difficulties continues to fascinate a host of theorists - and often proves a necessity for unravelling the limits of the Standard M...
