The global $SU(3)$ color symmetry and its physical consequences are discussed. The N\"{o}ther current is actually governed by the conserved matter current of color charges if the color field generated by this charge is properly polarized. The color field strength of a charge can have a uniform part due to the nontrivial QCD vacuum field and the nonzero gluon condensate, which implies that the self-energy of a system with a net color charge is infinite and thereby cannot exist as a free state…

Possible implications for particle physics by quantum measurement

In sharp contrast to its classical counterpart, quantum measurement plays a fundamental role in quantum mechanics and blurs the essential distinction between the measurement apparatus and the objects



Casimir scaling of SU ( 3 ) static potentials

Potentials between static color sources in eight different representations are computed in four dimensional $\mathrm{SU}(3)$ gauge theory. The simulations have been performed with the Wilson action
