# Relativistic three-quark bound states in separable two-quark approximation

## Description

Abstract Baryons as relativistic bound states in 3-quark correlations are described by an effective Bethe–Salpeter equation when irreducible 3-quark interactions are neglected and separable 2-quark correlations are assumed. We present an efficient numerical method to calculate the nucleon mass and its covariant wave function in this quantum field theoretic quark–diquark model with quark-exchange interaction. Expanding the components of the spinorial wave function in terms of Chebyshev polynomials, the... Title of program: BSE Catalogue Id: ADPT_v1_0 Nature of problem Diquarks are introduced as separable correlations in the two-quark Green's function to facilitate the description of baryons as relativistic three-quark bound states. These states then emerge as solutions of Bethe-Salpeter equations for quarks and diquarks that interact via quark exchange.
