A systematic study on nonrelativistic quarkonium interaction

Ikhdair, Sameer M.

A recently proposed strictly phenomenological static quark-antiquark potential belonging to the generality V(r) = -Ar-alpha + kappa r(beta) + V-0 is tested with heavy quarkonia in the context of the shifted large N-expansion method. This nonrelativistic potential model fits the spin-averaged mass spectra of the c (c) over bar, b (b) over bar and c (b) over bar quarkonia within a few MeV and also the five experimentally known leptonic decay widths of the cc and bb vector states. Further, we compute the hyperfine splittings of the bottomonium spectrum as well as the fine and hyperfine splittings of the charmonium spectrum. We give predictions for not yet observed B-c splittings. The model is then used to predict the masses of the remaining quarkonia and the leptonic decay widths of the two pseudoscalar c (b) over bar states. Our results are compared with other models to gauge the reliability of the predictions and point out differences.


A perturbative treatment for the energy levels of neutral atoms
Ikhdair, Sameer M.; Sever, Ramazan (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2006-12-20)
Energy levels of neutral atoms have been reexamined by applying an alternative perturbative scheme in solving the Schrodinger equation for the Yukawa potential model with a modified screening parameter. The predicted shell binding energies axe found to be quite accurate over the entire range of the atomic number Z up to 84 and compare very well with those obtained within the framework of hypervirial-Pade scheme and the method of shifted large-N expansion. It is observed that the new perturbative method may ...

We study the charged lepton electric dipole moment which is induced by the scalar unparticle mediation and we predict the appropriate range for the free parameters appearing in the effective Lagrangian which drives the unparticle-standard model lepton interactions. We observe that the charged lepton electric dipole moment is strongly sensitive to the scaling dimension d(u) of the unparticle and the new couplings in the effective interaction. Furthermore, we see that the current experimental limits of charge...
A continuum model for dephasing in mesoscopic systems
Şenozan, Selma; Turgut, Sadi; Tomak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 2011-08-01)
A model of continuous dephasing for one-dimensional mesoscopic conductors is proposed. The model is based on Buttiker's fictitious-probe model which is extended by attaching an infinite number of probes uniformly to various points on the conductor. The associated scattering problem is then solved. When the continuum limit is taken, it becomes possible to describe the dephasing as taking place everywhere. The dephasing rate enters into the model as an adjustable parameter. The effect of dephasing on the cond...
An open inflationary model for dimensional reduction and its effects on the observable parameters of the universe
Karaca, K; Bayin, S (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2005-04-30)
Assuming that higher dimensions existed in the early stages of the universe where the evolution was inflationary, we construct an open, singularity-free, spatially homogeneous and isotropic cosmological model to study the effects of dimensional reduction that may have taken place during the early stages of the universe. We consider dimensional reduction to take place in a stepwise manner and interpret each step as a phase transition. By imposing suitable boundary conditions we trace their effects on the pre...

A new empirical potential energy function (PEF) is proposed, which is formed from pair-interactions only, and contains the many-body contributions; The PEF satisfies bulk cohesive energy and bulk stability condition. The PEF is parameterized for copper, silver, and gold elements in fee crystal structure. The elastic constants C-11 and C-12 and the bulk modulus of the elements are calculated, and the structural stability and energetics of microclusters containing 3 to 7 atoms of the same elements are investi...
