Abstract

Extensions of the constituent quark potential model for mesons are formulated and analyzed which include relativistic dynamics and the full Dirac structure of both positive and negative energy states. The meson wave equations are transformed to configuration space where they can easily be solved numerically. Regge-slopes, the pion form factor and radiative, annihilation decay are studied. We find that the projection on the full Dirac structure of the confining potential and of the meson decay vertices gives unexpected large modifications to the nonrelativistic mass spectra and decay vertices. This paper summarizes the main results of [1, 2].
