Accidental Degeneracy

    Abstract

    A detailed discussion of nongeometric, or “accidental,” degeneracy is presented in the context of Newtonian, relativistic, and quantum mechanics. An analogy with broken symmetries in elementary-particle physics is used to present an elementary discussion of certain recent developments in theoretical high-energy physics.
