Homework Help: Gauge group SU(5) coupled to a scalar field

  1. Apr 23, 2007 #1
    1. For a project on elementary particle physics I have to consider a gauge theory with the gauge group SU(5) coupled to a scalar field.

    I am to use a certain non-zero vacuum expectation value for the scalar field and check what happens to the gauge bosons.

    I have already done this for SU(3) and I think I know how to do to it however I need to know the 24 generators of SU(5). The problem is that I can't seem to find them. In principle I could solve them by hand but it is a tremendous amount of work and I don't have Mathematica acces at the moment.

    Does anybody know a website where I can find these matrices?

    Thanks a lot in advance!
