Crossword clues for gluon
n. (context particle English) A massless gauge boson that binds quarks together to form baryons, mesons and other hadrons and is associated with the strong nuclear force.
n. a gauge boson that mediates strong interaction among quarks
Gluons are elementary particles that act as the exchange particles (or gauge bosons) for the strong force between quarks, analogous to the exchange of photons in the electromagnetic force between two charged particles. In layman terms, they "glue" quarks together, forming protons and neutrons.
In technical terms, gluons are vector gauge bosons that mediate strong interactions of quarks in quantum chromodynamics (QCD). Gluons themselves carry the color charge of the strong interaction. This is unlike the photon, which mediates the electromagnetic interaction but lacks an electric charge. Gluons therefore participate in the strong interaction in addition to mediating it, making QCD significantly harder to analyze than QED ( quantum electrodynamics).
Usage examples of "gluon".
When the stylus fired a coherent beam of mesons at the border, the razor wire of disrupted graphs sliced fragments of their own surreal dimensions from the knot of virtual quarks and gluons making up each meson, and it was possible to exploit coherence effects to make some of these fragments act in unison to modify the border itself.
Similarly, the gluons and weak gauge bosons are the messenger particles for the strong and weak nuclear forces.
Particles like photons, weak gauge bosons, and gluons are yet other resonant patterns of string vibration.
You can think of gluons as the microscopic ingredient in the strong glue holding atomic nuclei together.
The theory contained configurations of vibrating string that had properties akin to those of gluons, substantiating its early claim of being a theory of the strong force.
The strong force, which keeps quarks locked up inside of protons and neutrons, arises from individual quarks exchanging gluons.
The idea is that you get Antie to pour half the gluons out of the magnetic bottle and into the microwave cavity.
A droplet of gluons slid down the lip of the magnetic bottle and burned the tip off one of Antie's fingers.
It is believed that this force is carried by another spin-1 particle, called the gluon, which interacts only with itself and with the quarks.
The strong nuclear force is carried by gluons, the weak by intermediate vector bosons of several vari -- eties, the electromagnetic by photons, gravity by gravi -- tons, and magic by magicons.
The strong nuclear force is carried by gluons, the weak by intermediate vector bosons of several vari eties, the electromagnetic by photons, gravity by gravi tons, and magic by magicons.
The strong nuclear force is carried by gluons, the weak by intermediate vector bosons of several varieties, the electromagnetic by photons, gravity by gravitons, and magic by magicons.
In fact, gluon emission of the type they describe isn't even explainable with our current understanding of quantum chromodynamics.
I wondered how much a tasp would cost — in case this yellow gluons thing didn't work out.
Charge, color, and flavor arose from similar effects, but with virtual photons, gluons, and W-Z bosons as the mouths of the vacuum wormholes involved, and the six rolled-up dimensions, to which gravitons were impervious, now playing a crucial role.
