supersymmetry, quark models, skyrmions


The evolution of hadronic mass formulae with special emphasis on group theoretical descriptions and supersymmetry suggested by QCD and based on quark-antidiquark symmetry is shown, with further comments on possible applications to a Skyrme-type models that may compete with the potential quark models in the future.
