    Much of the work to be presented is contained in the following publications:M. Gell-Mann:Phys. Rev.,92, 833 (1953);M. Gell-Mann andA. Pais:Proceedings of the Glasgow Conference, 1954, and in an unpublished note:M. Gell-Mann:On the Classification of Particles (circulated in preprint form, August, 1953). In these references, however, the proposals under discussion are mentioned only briefly and are sometimes buried in a mass of other material. Here they are treated alone and in some detail. Practically the same proposals have been put forward in Japan. SeeT. Nakano andK. Nishijima:Prog. Theor. Phys.,10, 581 (1953) andK. Nishijima (to be published).
