  • n. The formation of hadrons from free quarks and gluons.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • This fact manifests itself in the uncertain energy of the b-quark jet, because the jet of colourless hadrons produced by the b-quark hadronization forcefully contains a quark which is coming not from the top quark, but from some other player in the interaction.

  • In the graph labeled "(b)" you see why the top quark can never be "taken alone": it is always color-connected by a coloured line passing through the b-quark and the other quarks participating in the b hadronization, with another quark produced somewhere else by the collision, and perfectly oblivious of the kinematics of top decay.
