We review the color charge degree of freedom in particle physics. Color has two facets in particle physics. One is as a three-valued charge degree of freedom, analogous to electric charge as a degree of freedom in electromagnetism. The other is as a gauge symmetry, analogous to the U(1) gauge theory of electromagnetism. Color as a three-valued charge degree of freedom was introduced by Oscar W. Greenberg [1] in 1964. Color as a gauge symmetry was introduced by Yoichiro Nambu [2] and by Moo… Expand
The Uncertainty Principle and Gribov Copies
In this paper, it is shown that for the hard gluon emitted in 3-jet event, the existence of the Hamiltonian H on a particular gauge orbit is only for the infinitesimal time–period φ. During thisExpand
On the Conformal Unity between Quantum Particles and General Relativity
I consider the standard model, together with a preon version of it, to search for unifying principles between quantum particles and general relativity. Argument is given for unified field theoryExpand
Mass Determination of New Particle States
We study theoretical and experimental facets of mass determination of new particle states. Assuming supersymmetry, we update the quark and lepton mass matrices at the grand unification scaleExpand
A Conformal Preon Model
I consider a preon model for quarks and leptons based on massless constituents having spin 1/2 and charge 1/3 or 0. The color and weak interaction gauge structures can be deduced from the three preonExpand
Preons, Gravity and Black Holes
A previous preon model for the substructure of the standard model quarks and leptons is completed to provide a model of Planck scale gravity and black holes. Gravity theory with torsion is introducedExpand
Knot Theory : Preons , Quarks and Leptons
I study the properties of a preon model for the substructure of the standard model quarks and leptons. The goal is to establish both local and global group representations for the particles of theExpand
Preons, Gravity with Torsion and Black Holes
A previous preon model for the substructure of the the standard model quarks and leptons is complemented to provide a model of black holes. Gravity theory with torsion is applied to preons producingExpand
Supersymmetric preons and the standard model
Abstract The experimental fact that standard model superpartners have not been observed compels one to consider an alternative implementation for supersymmetry. The basic supermultiplet proposed hereExpand
