Nikiforov-Uvarov method; heavy diquark systems


The Nikiforov-Uvarov method is an efficient technique for solving of heavy diquark systems. It has been used to derive analytic-exact energy eigenvalues and eigenfunctions in fractional forms, which are useful in describing such systems. The potentials employed include the Cornell potential, harmonic potential, and spin-spin interaction; have been updated with respect to previous studies. Mass spectra of heavy pentaquarks were also calculated using this method. Compared to previous studies, the present results exhibit good experimental data agreement and are improved. We deduce that the fractional models contribute greatly to the heavy pentaquark masses.
