Mass inequalities among composite particles in various hierarchies
Abstract
The variational approach of Nussinov (1983 and 1984), involving the assumption that the particles associated with intermediate bosons are composite, is applied to investigate the mass inequalities among such particles and leptonia, ions, and heavy quarkonia. Consideration is given to the possible Coulombic nature of the onegluon exchange contribution from the lowest bound states of heavy quarkonia, bindingenergy inequalities among ions, and the mass inequalities among proposed new colorless states. The results are discussed in connection with the UA1 and UA2 anomalous events observed experimentally at CERN (Arnison et al., 1984; Bagnaia et al., 1984).
