The basic constituent particles of the proton, neutron, pion and stranger relatives. Interact via the strong nuclear force. They also come in six types (flavours): up and down, strange and charm, bottom and top, with increasing masses.
Subparticle units that form the elementary particles. There are several species of quarks, each of which possesses, in addition to mass and electric charge, other fundamental attributes such as c-charge (color) and f-charge (flavor).
According to particle physics these sub-atomic particles are believed to be the constituents of elementary particles known as hadrons. Five or possibly six different sorts are thought to exist, but new discoveries are being made all the time.
Shared user library for the SuperCollider programming language and synthesis environment. Repository may contain classes, re-usable functions, mini-applications, SynthDefs, Instruments, UGen source code etc.
The resource manager that deals with Xdefaults has many strings and string comparisons to deal with. By representing each string as an integer then operations are faster. These integers are called Quarks.
