Tons and neutrons emerge from these dynamics With deeper understanding of the uark gluon structure of matter scientists are poised to
reach a deeper picture of these building blocks and atomic nuclei themselves as collective many body systems a deeper picture of these building blocks and atomic nuclei themselves as collective many body systems new emergent behaviorThe development of a

Understanding of protons and neutrons or oenucleons the building blocks of atomic nuclei has advanced dramatically both theoretically and
EXPERIMENTALLY IN THE PAST HALF CENTURY A CENTRAL GOAL in the past half century A central goal modern nuclear physics is to understand the structure of the proton and neutron directly from the dynamics of their uarks and gluons governed by the theory of their interactions uantum chromodynamics CD and how nuclear interactions between pro. .
