Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Potentials of quark-anti-quark pairs are studied from the q¯-q Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter (NBS) wave functions in quenched lattice QCD. With the use of a method which has been recently developed in the derivation of nuclear forces from QCD, we derive the q¯-q potentials with finite quark masses from the NBS wave functions. We calculate the q¯-q NBS wave functions in pseudo-scalar and vector channels for several quark masses. The derived potentials in both channels reveal linear confinement plus Coulomb potentials. We also discuss the quark-mass and channel dependence of the q¯-q potentials.
