The many body problem in relativistic quantum mechanics

  title={The many body problem in relativistic quantum mechanics},
  author={Marcos Moshinsky and A. G. Nikitin},
  journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology},
We discusse a relativistic Hamiltonian for an n-body problem in which all the masses are equal and all spins take value 1/2. In the frame of reference in which the total momentum $\v{P}=0$, the Foldy-Wouthuysen transformation is applies and the positive energy part of the Hamiltonian is separated. The Hamiltonian with unharmonic oscillator potential is applied to describe mass differences for charmonium and bottonium states.

In this paper, we propose a new approach to the relativistic quantum mechanics for many-body, which is a self-consistent system constructed by juxtaposed but mutually coupled nonlinear Dirac's

Solvable Two-Body Dirac Equation as a Potential Model of Light Mesons ?

The two-body Dirac equation with general local potential is reduced to the pair of ordinary second-order differential equations for radial components of a wave function. The class of linear + Coulomb

Klein–Gordon and Dirac gyroscopes

The formulation of a rigid body in relativistic quantum mechanics is studied. Departing from an alternate approach at the relativistic classical level, the corresponding Klein–Gordon and Dirac

The Dirac-Moshinsky Oscillator: Theory and Applications

This work summarizes the most important developments in the construction and application of the Dirac-Moshinsky oscillator (DMO) with which the author has come in contact. The literature on the

Relativistic echo dynamics and the stability of a beam of Landau electrons

We extend the concepts of echo dynamics and fidelity decay to relativistic quantum mechanics, specifically in the context of Klein–Gordon and Dirac equations under external electromagnetic fields. In

Fundamental constraints on two-time physics

Abstract.We show that generalizations of classical and quantum dynamics with two times lead to a fundamentally constrained evolution. At the level of classical physics, Newton’s second law is

Quantization of almost-circular orbits in the Fokker action formalism

The time-non-local action principle of Fokker type determining a two-particle dynamics is considered. The system is assumed to be general but invariant with respect to the Aristotle group, which is a

Nonlinear Dirac equations

We construct nonlinear extensions of Dirac's relativistic electron equation that preserve its other desirable properties such as locality, separability, conservation of proba- bility and Poincare



Reduction of Relativistic Three-Body Kinematics

The Klein—Gordon system describing three scalar particles without interaction is cast into a new form by transformation of the momenta. Two redundant degrees of freedom are eliminated; we are left

Relativistic Quantum Mechanics

Chapter summary 36 The aim of this chapter is to introduce a relativistic formalism which can be used to describe particles and their interactions. The emphasis is given to those elements of the

The Principles of Quantum Mechanics

IT is now twenty years since the theory of quantum mechanics was founded, and not much less since the first edition of Dirac's book was published. Ever since, it has been a classic of scientific
