    made a quick note that the exact gauge group is the quotient

    (U(1)×SU(2)×SU(3))/ 6 \big( U(1) \times SU(2) \times SU(3) \big) / \mathbb{Z}_6

    still need to give more canonical reference

    added this pointer:

    The big international conference of [[ 1974]] in London was a turning point [[]] Ellis’ catalog well reflected the state of theoretical confusion and general disarray in trying to interpret the e +e e^+ e^- data. But in the midst of all of this was a talk by John Iliopoulos (I think I was there too). With passionate zealotry, he laid out with great accuracy what we call the standard model. Everything was there: proton decay, charm, the GIM mechanism of course, QCD, the SU(2)×U(1)SU(2)\times U(1) electroweak theory, SU(5)SU(5) grand unification, Higgs, etc. It was all presented presented with absolute conviction and sounded at the time just a little mad, at least to me (I am a conservative).

    The exact standard model gauge group is the subgroup of the Jordan algebra automorphism group of the octonionic Albert algebra that “stabilizes a 4d sub-Minkowski spacetime” (see there for details).

    I have added pointer to today’s article by Krasnov:

    More concretely, it is identified with the subgroup of Spin(9) which respects a splitting 3\mathbb{H} \oplus \mathbb{H} \simeq_{\mathbb{R}} \mathbb{C} \oplus \mathbb{C}^3 (Krasnov 19)
