A theory of weak interaction of quarks is developed in the framework of SU (2) symmetry. Expressions are obtained for the probability of decay of quarks into leptoquarks, quarks into leptons, and leptoquarks into leptons. A model is also constructed of the interaction of quarks with matter in which strong and electromagnetic interactions of quarks with matter are forbidden. In this model, the weak interaction of quarks is the main form of interaction between quarks and matter. In this connection, it is suggested that quarks should be looked for in nature in the products of their weak decay in accordance with the theory developed here.
