Can anyone give or point me to a list of ALL continuous symmetries in the standard model, and the conserved currents associated with them? I've spent a lot of time looking and for the most part everything I find is very abstract, where as I want the specific details to the SM (i.e. SU(N) gauge symmetries and chiral symmetries for massless/higgsless fields which are idealizations of the SM).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The continuous symmetries I am aware of are: SU(1)xSU(2)xSU(3) gauge symmetries and chiral symmetries for each fermion. As I haven't found an exhaustive list, I'm not sure if there are others.

I believe the conserved currents associated with these symmetries are RELATED to charge conservation and fermion number conservation. However, the higgs complicates the actual form of these currents and I dont know what they are.
