Hyperspherical harmonic model for the ground-state baryons

  • 23 Accesses

  • 1 Citations


The wave functions of the 18 ground-state light baryons are calculated in the quark model. The space wave functions are obtained by means of a (confining) hyperspherical harmonic potential in a nonrelativistic Hamiltonian. The different flavors (up, down, strange) are treated as identical particles.
