"The Novel World of Hadron Physics"
 Slideshow (PDF)

I will survey a number of exciting new developments in hadron physics.

These include: new insights into the nature of the color-confi ning con finement quark potential in quantum chromodynamics; a novel application of supersymmetry to hadron physics; the relation between the parameter ΛMS which controls high-energy interactions of quarks to the mass of the proton; and the elimination of the renormalization scale ambiguity for perturbative QCD calculations.

I will also discuss several novel experimental tests of QCD which can be performed at JLab, including: hard exclusive and diff ractive reactions, flavor-dependent antishadowing of nuclear interactions; intrinsic strange- and charm-quark phenomena; the production of tetraquarks and other exotic hadronic states; and factorization-breaking lensing phenomena.
