Gauge Theory for Strong Interactions

  • G. ’t Hooft
Part of the The Subnuclear Series book series (SUS, volume 13)


There are good indications that the strong interactions can be described by a non-Abelian gauge theory based on the “color” gauge group SU(3). There are only gauge vector bosons and quarks in this theory, but no scalar fields, hence we have no symmetry breaking through a Higgs mechanism.
