Algebraic Approach to Baryon Structure

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


We present an algebraic approach to the internal structure of baryons in terms
of three constituents. We investigate a collective model in which the nucleon is
regarded as a rotating and vibrating oblate top with a prescribed distribution of
charges and magnetization. We contrast the collective and single-particle descriptions of baryons and compare the predictions of the model with existing data on
masses, electromagnetic elastic and transition form factors and strong decays widths.
