Based on the Caputo definition of the fractional derivative the ground state spectra of mesons are classified as multiplets of the fractional rotation group. The comparison with the experimental values leads to the conclusion, that quarks carry an up to now unrevealed fractional multiplicative quantum number, which we call fractional hyper charge.

A study of the charmonium, upsilon and strangeonium systems

We study the charmonium, upsilon and strangeonium systems with a linear+Coulomb potential, in the high αs regime. Our approach is based on the Bethe-Salpeter equation, in ladder approximation, and

The spectrum of charmonium in the presence of a charmed-meson continuum is investigated. Radiative rates are in considerably better agreement with data than for the naive model, the largest
