A quark is an elementary particle and a fundamental constituent of matter. They combine to form hadrons, the most stable of which are protons and neutrons, the components of atomic nuclei. Quarks are never directly observed or found in isolation.

Elementary-particle physics deals with the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions. In this comprehensive article we shall attempt to sketch the outlines of the standard model and its possible extensions.
