Remarks on Photon-Hadron Interactions
Year: 2003 Pages: 17
Keywords: Photon, Hadron, VMD
Theoretical aspects of VMD and related approaches to real photon-hadron interaction are discussed. The work relies on special relativity, properties of linearly polarized photons, angular momentum conservation and relevant experiments. It is explained why VMD and similar approaches should not be regarded as part of a theory but, at most, as phenomenological models. A further experiment pertaining to this issue is suggested.
