Poincaré Covariant Quark Models of Baryon Form Factors

Poincaré covariant quark models of the the nucleon, the ∆ resonance and their excitations are explored. The baryon states are represented by eigenfunctions of the four-velocity and a confining mass operator, which reproduces the empirical spectrum up to ∼ 1700 MeV to an accuracy of ∼ 6%. Models of constituent quark currents provide the relations between… (More)
