Abstract

BARROS, JR., C. C.. Space-time and hadrons. Braz. J. Phys. [online]. 2007, vol.37, n.1a, pp. 17-19. ISSN 0103-9733.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-97332007000100007.

The hadronic structure is investigated in terms of a recently proposed theory which considers the effect of the strong interaction in the space-time description. From the equations, the masses of the particles may be calculated, and quark confinement appears as a natural result, without the need of confining potentials. Some properties of the considered particles, such as the topponium size, are also estimated.

Keywords : Quark confinement; Heavy quarkonium; Space-time curvature.
