Abstract

The consequences for five-colour QCD of a novel symmetry-breaking mechanism, published in an earlier paper, are further explored. In addition to the emergence of QED and three-colour QCD, there is also a candidate for the Z0μ. The representation theory of SU (N) is applied to the matter sector and yields the quark and electron charge ratios, and a mechanism for generating fermion particle masses.
