    • Abstract


      An attempt is made to study the interaction Hamiltonian,Hint =2(x)U(φ(x)) in the Bethe-Salpeter framework for the confined states of theψ particles interactingvia the exchange of theU field, whereU(φ) = cos (). An approximate solution of the eigenvalue problem is obtained in the instantaneous approximation by projecting the Wick-rotated Bethe-Salpeter equation onto the surface of a four-dimensional sphere and employing Hecke’s theorem in the weak-binding limit. We find that the spectrum of energies for the confined states,E =2m+B (B is the binding energy), is characterized byEn6, wheren is the principal quantum number.
