Vectons in a Coulomb field

  • 16 Accesses

Abstract

The problem is solved within the framework of an approach developed by the author. The author believes this approach to be free of deficiencies characteristic of theories for particles with unit and larger spins. We derive integrals of motion, separate variables, derive radial-state equations, and then solve them. We find coupled particle states; these are vector “atoms” that may be observed in nature. They possess a discrete energy spectrum similar to that of electrons in hydrogen atoms as seen in Dirac theory. We also note cases of particle repulsion from the center of fields, zero rest mass, and elementary free motion.
