    For the gluon: (r-antir - b-antib)/SQRT(2). Does the negative sign indicate that quarks exchanging this particle are repelled from each other? What does the negative sign mean?

    Where does this equation come from?

    Huh?? You might as well ask about the meaning of a positive sign.

    You need to review what bases are in vector spaces. You've mentioned only one of eight color states.

    Bases are not unique.
