Attempts at Understanding the Mass Spectra of Elementary Particles
This report contains an account of some attempts to unfurl the intricacies of the mass spectrum of elementary particles. Although the discussion is limited to ideas that work, in the sense that they are not immediately refuted by experiments, we are not yet convinced that any of them are correct. We have gone off in several different directions; in some cases we have carried out enormous calculations. We hope that others may use the results to better advantage.
