Partners of the Su(3) Hadrons

Authors: Bernard Riley

The hadrons of the SU(3) JP= 0-, ½+ and 1- multiplets are shown to have partners of the same spin or of spin difference ½. Partnerships occur between hadrons with some quark content in common, there being no distinction between quarks and antiquarks. The partnerships are centred upon particle mass levels that descend in geometric progression from the Planck Mass. The mass differences characterising partnerships are equal to the masses of levels. Isospin doublets behave as single particles, represented by the geometric mean of the hadron masses. The K-meson isospin doublets and the electron are arranged as partnerships, as are the π+ and π- isospin triplet states and the muon.
