heavy tetraquarks, Non-Relativistic models


In the non-relativistic quark model, the interaction potential for the tetraquark is proposed which involves the logarithmic potential, linear potential, harmonic potential, and spin-spin interaction potential. Analytically, the non-relativistic Bethe-Salpeter equation is solved, with diquark-antidiquark congurations taken into account. The work iscompared to other recent works. Our results of the heavy tetraquark may provide useful information for future experimental data.
