## Main Question or Discussion Point

Dear PFers,

I am looking for a way to visualize SU(3). I have heard from a friend

(who heard it as a rumor) that like SU(2) can be

visualized with a (Dirac) belt, also SU(3) can be visualized, but

with three belts, because SU(3) has three independent copies of

SU(2) as subgroups.

I found no material on this on the internet.

Is there anybody who can help me with more details? Thank you!

Franca
