As the only stable baryon the nucleon is of crucial importance in particle physics. After more than forty years of research on the nucleon, this book provides a unique overview on the practical studies, theoretical fundamentals, and the different models of the nucleon. A.W. Thomas (University of Adelaide, Australia) and W. Weise (Technical University of Munich, Germany), both outstanding in this field, give a unique synthesis of topics previously only covered in disparate works.
