QM, Strong Force and Baryons

Could you please explain in a simple way how strong force inside baryons really works? I mean, gluons are messengers of strong force but they are also sensitive to strong force(they are charged) so they are producing other gluons as messengers of their own chrage. What mechanism prevents to grow the number of gluons in lets say proton to go to infinity? They are annihilating with each other so statistically there is still finite number of gluons or is there another mechanism? Thank you!

Gauge Theory and Higgs Mechanism

What is Gauge Theory and how does it relate to electroweak symmetry? How does the breaking of a symmetry cause a reaction such as the obtaining of mass?

In particle physics, the Higgs mechanism is a kind of mass generation mechanism, a process that gives mass to elementary particles.

Gauge theory is the successful field theory explaining the dynamics of elementary particles.

Black Holes and Space

Is it possible that matter falling into a black hole would emerge in some form of elementary particles or energy in some other point in space or even time (space/time)?

I thought that matter couldn’t be destroyed just transformed into energy or some other form of matter.

Articles or theories on what happens to matter falling into a black hole say that it just falls out of existence.  That doesn’t make sense.

Responses:
“I have few knowledge about this subject, even though I think that ordinary matter when enters into blackholes may convert into darkmatter, ie energy associated with ordinary matter escapes & the matter will convert into darkmatter. From the origin of our universe this process may take place & this may be the reason that the amount of darkmatter is greater than that of ordinary matter.Here matter is not destroyed because total matter(including dark matter & visible matter ) remains constant.” … Anitha Anand (Student at university college,TVM)
