Description

Quantum chromodynamics degrees of freedom are proposed to explain various puzzling results in nuclear physics. The 1983 EMC experiment discovery of unexpected quark behavior in nuclei has been investigated in great depth both experimentally and theoretically since that time. The viability of quark-quark bonds across nucleons provides an explanation for unusual quark behavior when the quark home nucleon is embedded in a nucleus. Predictions for the isospin values of nucleon-nucleon pairs are given and the spin dependence of diquark bonds in nuclei is quantified.
