The lack of a perfectly spherical character of the charge distribution of the proton is inferred from the anomalous magnetic moment of the particle. As a schematic representation of the shape of the proton, a spheroidal ellipsoid can be assumed from classical considerations. Use of the hadronic generalization of quantum mechanics then permits the quantitative estimate for the ellipsoid of the oblate spheroidal type with metric g = diag [1; 1; 0.60].
Keywords: extended and deformable character of hadrons (or the like)
