Abstract

NOTE: Text or symbols not renderable in plain ASCII are indicated by [...]. Abstract is included in .pdf document.

All higher symmetry schemes involving from three to ten baryons with reasonable isotopic assignments are found. The case of eight baryons is done explicitly; the results in the other cases are stated. The predictions of the schemes regarding mesons and electromagnetic form factors are found and briefly compared with experiment. A study is made of the connections between different schemes.

The methods developed to treat the above problems are used to make a systematic study of chiral symmetries [...]. It is shown that only two special cases, called free chiral symmetry and bound chiral symmetry, are of interest. These are discussed in detail.

Several recently proposed theories are treated as special cases.
