i used to get pauli matrices by the following steps(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

it uses the symmetry of a complex plane sphere i guess so..?

however i cant get the 8 gell mann matrices

please help !!

method*: (x y) * (a b / c d ) = (x' y')

use |x|^2 + |y|^2 = |x'|^2 + |y'|^2

and |x| = x * x(complex conjugate)

this way i can get 3 pauli matrices

however can't apply them to su(3) ones..

Have something to add?
