In science:

Consequently, an additional flavor index h appears in the order parameter, Φh k . A nonvanishing order parameter automatically implies that not only the local [SU (3)c ] color, but also the global SU (3)V flavor symmetry is broken.
The Quark-Gluon Plasma in Equilibrium
Condensation breaks the local color [SU (3)c ] symmetry and the global SO(3)J spin symmetry.
The Quark-Gluon Plasma in Equilibrium
Like in the 2SC phase, the residual [SU (2)c ] color symmetry is a local symmetry, and there are three massless and five massive gluons.

The three fits of the local luminosity function are also shown in all the other panels (with the same color and line style).
Spitzer view on the evolution of star-forming galaxies from z=0 to z~3
For local galaxies, a number of authors have demonstrated how accurate stellar masses can be determined from K -band luminosities combined with optical colors to constrain the star formation history (Bell & de Jong 2001; Bell et al. 2003; Kauffmann et al. 2003).

Since the bulge is “locally” coupled to the color source it is conceivable that the bulge energy difference scales as ∼ Λ/N .

Also, local color neutrality in the transverse overlap region of the collision (21) was imposed and other smaller inconsistencies corrected, leading to a ratio of ET /N, which is consistent with the physical interpretation of the saturation scale (22).
