Mass in things like gluon feilds

  1. Apr 18, 2006 #1
    what sort of equations are specific to this, and could they be explained for me? I am jumping from one place tot he next in my learning of these sort of things, as i have honestly never taken a physics class. i still have a fairly in depth knowlege of the relativity, lorentz's ideas of it, some qm and some other seemingly obscure topics, do not hesitate to draw a line from one to the next.

    (ex- how exactly is the ever so popular equation applied to this specifically)

    also- on a different note, are the charges on leptons and quarks related by integers (when converted to mass by an equation such as E=mc^2) to the masses of the particles themselves?
