Nucleon Structure: An Awesome Puzzle
Argonne Physics Division Seminar - Tuesday, 20 Dec 2016, 10:00AM
Building 203, Conference Room R-150

Normal matter makes up just few percent of the Universe today but it is what we are made of. The normal matter puzzle has not been solved yet and the challenge is to connect few elementary constituents and interactions to the world as we know it in its complexity. In this talk I will focus on the strongly interacting matter puzzle with emphasis on the nucleon structure. In particular, I will discuss some of the experimental program at Jefferson Lab that probes the nucleon in the elastic and inelastic scattering regimes to provide precision extractions of nucleon's form factors and parton distribution functions. These physical objects can in turn be used to understand the dynamics by which quarks and gluons come together to manifest as detectable hadrons.
