Algebraic Treatment of Collective Excitations in Baryon Spectroscopy
Algebraic methods have been used extensively in hadronic physics for the description of the internal degrees of freedom (flavor-spin-color) . Spectrum generating algebras and dynamic symmetries have been very instrumental in the classification of hadronic states and the construction of mass formulas, such as the Gell-Mann-Okubo mass formula .
