Unitary Symmetries of Hadrons
This chapter deals with further consequences of the quark model, such as a simple explanation of the tendency, displayed by hadron species in nature, to form groupings known as SU(n) multiplets, 2 ≤ n ≤ 6. The latter property is known as the SU(n) symmetry and includes, as a special case with n = 2, the isospin symmetry discussed in Chapter 2.
