Abstract

In this Note, we draw a straight line between the representation theory of SU(3) and the SU(3)-classification schemes in particle physics. Our approach is based on that of Weyl, but we have in mind the versions which appear, “in modern dress,” in Adams and Bott. Our formulation brings an important part of particle physics into line with two contemporary accounts of compact Lie groups.
