    • Abstract


      In this short note we wish to point out that the instanton model, which was theoretically fascinating, has recently found application in explaining the hyperfine splitting of mesons and baryons. In particular, the flavour independence ofMv2-MP2 (i.e. the squared mass difference of the vector and the pseudoscalar mesons), known to be constant for the strange and non-strange mesons in theu,d and the charm quark sectors, have recently been shown to be the same for the beauty sector through experiments. This flavour independence and the magnitude of the splitting agrees remarkably well with the instanton model.
