Derivation of infinite-component wave equations from field theory
Infinite-component wave equations describe composite particles relativistically and nonperturbatively. They have been used in the past phenomenologically to describe mass spectra, magnetic moments, form factors, etc. of atoms, nuclei and hadrons. They are now derived from field theory, hence related to the properties of basic fields. Their solutions therefore provide nonperturbative solutions to the underlying field theory.
