Idea

The gluon is the gauge boson of the SU(3)SU(3)-Yang-Mills field in QCD.

A vector boson in the standard model of particle physics.

The bound states of gluons are glueballs.

Classification of long-range forces

Classification of possible long-range forces, hence of scattering processes of massless fields, by classification of suitably factorizing and decaying Poincaré-invariant S-matrices depending on particle spin, leading to uniqueness statements about Maxwell/photon-, Yang-Mills/gluon-, gravity/graviton- and supergravity/gravitino-interactions:
