Pentaquarks, antiquark, two-diquark


The exotic particles such as the pentaquarks are to strengthen understanding of important interactions and the principle of QCD in which pentaquarks contain two heavy- valence quarks. The structure of two bodies including an antiquark and two-diquark is introduced. A new potential for quark interaction is suggested which includes the logarithm potential, the linear potential, and the spin-spin interaction. The suggested potential is included in the framework of spinless of Bethe-Salpeter equation. A comparison with other works is presented which provides a good description of pentaquarks.
