Mesons & Baryons (Hadrons)

IPP views hadrons as clusters of defect pairs arranged in cardinal orientations to each other. Mesons are classified by having one or more defect pairs in one or two cardinal directions (occasionally, in three). Baryons have three or more defect pairs in all 3 cardinal directions. Clicking on a hadron family on the left will present you with a listing of the individual particles in each family. Particle details are viewed by clicking on the particle name to the left of its thumbnail image.
