Dear developers:
SUNSimplify[SUNTrace[SUNT[i, j, i, j]], Explicit -> True] just gives -2/3;
while SUNSimplify[SUNT[i, j, i, j], Explicit -> True] gives -2/9.
why these two differ by a factor "3"?
In what conditions should I have to use SUNTrace when evaluating QCD processes?
For example, when calculating an scalar QCD process(gluon gluon-->q0,q0bar),I just evaluate the color factor at last, before that I just have the squared matrix element equals (\!\(
\*SubsuperscriptBox[\(g\), \(s\), \(4\)]\ \((
\*SuperscriptBox[\(t\), \(2\)]\
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`i\)\)] .
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`j\)\)] .
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`j\)\)] .
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`i\)\)] + t\ u\
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`i\)\)] .
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`j\)\)] .
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`i\)\)] .
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`j\)\)] + t\ u\
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`j\)\)] .
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`i\)\)] .
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`j\)\)] .
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`i\)\)] +
\*SuperscriptBox[\(u\), \(2\)]\
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`i\)\)] .
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`j\)\)] .
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`j\)\)] .
\*SubscriptBox[\(T\), \(TraditionalForm\`\(TraditionalForm\`i\)\)])\)\))/(32 s^2)
At this momente, I just wonder whether I have to use SUNTrace before SUNSimplify. The answer is yes, only by that can the result match the correct one. But I don't know why I have to?
Thanks for the help!

Best Regards!
