On a novel relativistic quasi-potential equation for two scalar particles

  • A. B. Arbuzov


A novel quasi-potential relativistic equation for two scalar particles of arbitrary masses is presented. The derivation is demonstrated in detail. For the electromagnetic interaction, the equation has the form of the one-particle Schrödinger equation. The interaction is introduced by the minimal substitution. The exact solutions are considered in several limits: non-relativistic, equal masses, one particle at rest and ultrarelativistic. The problem of interaction retardation is discussed.
