The geometry of SU(3) [report]

M. Byrd
1997 unpublished
The group SU(3) is parameterized in terms of generalized "Euler angles". The differential operators of SU(3) corresponding to the Lie Algebra elements are obtained, the invariant forms are found, the group invariant volume element is found, and some relevant comments about the geometry of the group manifold are made.
