A generalization of Lie groups and algebras is formulated, which includes graded, modular and colour groups and algebras. As an example, a generalization of ggl((n)) is defined, with its associated Lie algebra and vector operators. The application to the dynamics and statistics of the quark model and similar models of composite particles is outlined.
