    • Abstract


      We consider spinor, scalar and vector fields with colour degrees of freedom and find the classical solutions when the constraint of vanishing colour currents is imposed. We find that there are no non-trivialc-number solutions for spinor fields transforming as a triplet under SU(3), although solutions exist for scalar and vector fields. We also show that the colour current of spinor fields coupled to an instanton is zero.
