The b field equations proposed by Yang and Mills are investigated from a classical point of view, and the general solution is obtained under the condition of the static and spherically symmetric field. It is found that the solution is reducible to the “canonical form” by means of the isotopic gauge transformation. From this canonical form it is very likely that the mass of the b quantum is zero in spite of the non-linearity of the field equations.
