 +$SU(3)$ is at the heart of the so-called "​eightfold way", a scheme that organizes the large "​zoo"​ of hadron particles into neat geometrical patterns (octets and decuplets). 
 +$SU(3)$ is also the gauge group of the strong nuclear interaction. It describes how particles with "color charge"​ (quarks and gluons) interact. ​
