About The Eightfold Way

The Eightfold Way is the name of Li Qun sl3C (or SU (3)) that accompanies particle physics because its dimension is 8. The name was coined by the physicist Murray Gellman, a metaphor for the eight principles of Buddhism.

Particle physics uses the eightfold to express the symmetry of quark flavor.
