Relativistic versus nonrelativistic solution of the N-fermion problem in a hyperradius-confining potential

We investigate the quantum system of N identical fermions in the relativistic limit. In this article the considered potential is a combination of Coulombic, linear confining and harmonic oscillator terms. By using Jacobi coordinates and introducing the hyperradius quantity we obtain the wave functions of the system as well as the corresponding energy eigenvalues. Assuming that all particles are confined within a hypersphere we calculate the corresponding x bag . In particular we consider the case N = 3 which corresponds to baryonic systems. By using the experimental values of the charge radius of each baryon we calculate the potential coefficients. Within our treatment the results of the MIT bag model are recovered for N = 1. Finally we compare the results obtained by the Dirac equation with the corresponding results of the Schrödinger equation and we find that the energy spectra obtained by the former are much closer to experimental values.
