Minkowski space 4D dynamics for hadrons


  • Prof. Tobias FREDERICO

Primary authors


We present recent collaborative efforts for solving the bound state Bethe-Salpeter equation in the Minkowski space with the use of the Nakanishi integral representation and also by explicit rotation of the Euclidean energy axis towards the Minkowski axis. We are envisaging future applications to hadrons and in particular to model the pion. In order to do so, we also have to use similar techniques to obtain the quark self-energy in Minkowski space. As a first step in this direction we present results for the fermion self-energy in Minkowski space in a QED-like model in the rainbow truncation.
