Abstract : Non-perturbative solutions of quantum field theory are sought. A model is considered which possesses the higher symmetry SU(3). It is found that without the introduction into the Lagrangian of any symmetry-breaking terms, solutions exist ich hav only the lower symmetries of isotopic spin and hyperchange. It is also shown that he usual electrodynamic interaction of the muonsAND THE ELECTRONS ALLOWS T E POSSIBILITY OF GENERATING A MASS SPLITTING BETWEEN THEM. Finally a Lagrangian is con i ered in which the bare coupling constants are set equal to zero, and self-generated renormalized coupling constants are found. (Author)
