Quantum Chromodynamics and the Transactional Interpretation of Quantum Physics.

Peter J Carroll. 16/1/2015.

Abstract. If we accept the gluon model to explain the strong nuclear force, then only a Transactional exchange would seem capable of explaining how quarks bind with anti-quarks to form mesons, and this implies that Transactional exchanges may also actually bind together quark triplets as hadrons, such as the familiar proton and neutron.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transactional_interpretation

The Transactional Interpretation of Quantum Physics forms an important element of the developing theory of three dimensional time; and it has huge implications for our metaphysical views of space, time, and causality. The author suspects that Transactional exchanges mediate all the fundamental forces currently modelled by the gauge bosons and that thus all such bosons have particle-anti-particle components with the anti-particle components travelling backwards in time as advanced waves.

The Argument.

In the Standard Model quarks can carry one of three ‘colour’ charges designated Red, Green, or Blue, (or their anticolours). The emission by a quark of a colour/anticolour gluon and its absorption by another quark creates an attractive force which overcomes the repulsive effects of the electric charges on the quarks.

Thus for example a Red quark can emit a Red/AntiGreen gluon and in doing so become a Green quark itself, the Red/Antigreen gluon can then become absorbed by a Green quark turning it into a Red quark: -

 

Quark

Gluon

Quark

R

\begin{array}{ccccccccccccccc}
 - \\
{RG}
\end{array}

G

     

G

     

R

 

 

This model mysteriously requires that a Red quark somehow remains capable of emitting gluons with AntiGreen or AntiBlue components as well as a Red component.

This model however does not seem to provide a satisfactory description of an inter-quark binding force in the quark-antiquark pairs of mesons. Consider for example the case of a Red/AntiRed meson:-

 

Quark

Gluon

Quark

R

\begin{array}{ccccccccccccccc}
 - \\
{R{R^{}}}
\end{array}

\begin{array}{ccccccccccccccc}
 - \\
{{R^{}}}
\end{array}

     

(\begin{array}{ccccccccccccccc}
 - \\
{{R^{}}}
\end{array})

     

(R)

 

This model proves contradictory here to the first mechanism, because the emission or absorption of an \begin{array}{ccccccccccccccc}
 - \\
{R{R^{}}}
\end{array}  Gluon changes nothing, it could only impart mutual recoil and hence repulsion between the quarks.

To give an attractive force the quarks in a meson pair would have to do this: -

Quark

Gluon

Quark

R

RR

\begin{array}{ccccccccccccccc}
 - \\
{{R^{}}}
\end{array}

     

\begin{array}{ccccccccccccccc}
 - \\
{{R^{}}}
\end{array}

     

R

 

Yet this invokes the idea of an RR Gluon,which completely upsets the whole model. 

However the Transactional Interpretation can reconcile this inconsistency: -

Quark

Gluon

Quark

 

R

 

R      

\begin{array}{ccccccccccccccc}
 - \\
R
\end{array}

 

\begin{array}{ccccccccccccccc}
 - \\
R
\end{array}

 

 

Here the Red quark emits its ‘half’ of the gluon, a retarded wave of Red, whilst the AntiRed quark emits the other ‘half’, an advanced wave of AntiRed.

Using this Transactional description we can model the nuclear force between two quarks of different colours in a hadron as follows, for example between a Red and a Green quark.

Quark

↔    

Gluon

↔      

Quark

 

R

 

R      

G

 

G

 

 

If we consider this reaction as proceeding from left to right then the G component of the exchange corresponds to \begin{array}{ccccccccccccccc}
 - \\
{{G^{}}}
\end{array}, AntiGreen,

This Transactional Interpretation has two advantages; firstly quarks can only emit the colour that they exhibit, although they can do so in advanced wave mode also which effectively allows them to emit their colour in anti-sign. Secondly the interpretation preserves the ubiquitous time symmetry of the quantum realm.
