Title: Quark Flavor Identification In Electron-Positron Annihilation

Abstract

To the great misfortune of the experimental physicist, one of the principal objects of current theoretical speculation is almost entirely hidden from view. Quarks, the proposed principal constituents of all hadrons, are almost universally believed to exist, but they have never been, and possibly will never be, seen in the laboratory. Unlike the leptons, whose presence is unmistakable, they are so well disguised behind the jets of hadrons that they create, that their properties, both under the strong and weak interactions, remain largely unmeasured, especially the properties of the heavier, more recently discovered, quarks.
