-7 In QED one has no terms corresponding to the number of colors (the 3-gluon) vertex. This term has a negative sign. Quark confinement arises from the increasing strength of the interaction at long range. At short range the gluon force is weak; at long range it is strong. This confinement arises from the SU(3) symmetry with its non-commuting (non-abelian) group elements. This non-commuting property generates terms in the Lagrangian density which produce 3-gluon vertices and gluon
loops in the exchanged gluon propagator. Conditions on the SU(2) Gauge Particle Fields which complete the Invariance of the Lagrangian Density We want to find W such that the following is satisfied: D = D [ei/2 ] = ei/2 D cancel
