    • Abstract


      We use variationally improved perturbation theory (VIPT) for calculating the elastic form factors and charge radii of $D$, $D_{s}$, $B$, $B_{s}$ and $B_{c}$ mesons in a quantum chromodynamics (QCD)-inspired potential model. For that, we use linear-cum-Coulombic potential and opt the Coulombic part first as parent and then the linear part as parent. The results show that charge radii and form factors are quite small for the Coulombic parent compared to the linear parent. Also, the analysis leads to a lower as well as upper bounds on the four-momentum transfer $Q^{2}$, hinting at a workable range of $Q^{2}$ within this approach, which may be useful in future experimental analyses. Comparison of both the options shows that the linear parent is the better option.
