Paper Abstract

Quantum Chromo Dynamics (QCD) is the theory of strong interactions. While QCD has met with great success at high energy phenomena, our understanding of the workings of QCD at low energies, where the quarks are bound into nucleons and mesons, remains uncertain. GlueX will explore a crucial aspect of QCD that predicts exotic forms of matter created in certain high energy reactions. Such exotic particles, if observed, will provide us with an ideal tool to test, improve and understand aspects of QCD as never before and thus help solve the puzzle of confinement.
