    Recognizing Quarks...???

    As data accumulated in the early sixties, about the chunky increases in masses of hadrons, a number of people made prescient comments. Not all of them received much credit, which can happen. Murray Gell-Mann and George Zweig published in early to mid January in 1964, but there was a paper in late December which goes pretty much unheralded by A. Petermann. The author makes a point.

    What sort of prescient comments? What point was made? I'm not going to dive blindly into a science paper and I don't understand the context of your post title and how it relates to what you want me to read.

    CJSF. The discovery of quarks is generally attributed to Gell-Mann and Zweig, with Abdus Salam getting some credit for also originating the idea at lunch at a conference with Gell-Mann asking the question of the moderator after lunch on the possibility of a triple strange particle...(the Omega Minus)....(parallel to Yuval Neeman's idea). this is the first reference to Peterman I've seen since 1962, in about 200,000 abstracts. Before screening Arxiv articles in Physics, Astrophysics, Nuclear Theory, Nuclear Experiments, Quantum Physics, High Energy Physics, High Energy Theory, and High Energy Phenomenology since ~ 1992, and I was reading hundreds of hours of Journals at Widener Library at MIT for a few decades. He was first on December 31, 1962. About two weeks earlier, while working at CERN and puiblishing in a peer reviewed journal. Odd.
