Some general features of the bootstrap theory of octet enhancement


Some general features of the boostrap theory of octet enhancement, which can be understood without detailed calculations, are discussed. These features include: (i) the connection of this theory to the vector-mixing theory of symmetry breaking advocated by Sakurai, and to the tadpole theory of Coleman and Glashow; (ii) an understanding of why it is representations of low multiplicity that are dynamically emphasized in symmetry breaking; (iii) a demonstration that the theory remains valid when a number of assumptions made in previous applications are dropped.
