Are Particles and Antiparticles Able to Form (Quasi) Molecular Structures?

Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 2)


The possibility of having quasi-molecular structures in a streem of elementary particles and antiparticles is discussed. It is shown that the mass, charge symmetry of any cluster composed of two identical particles and two identical antiparticles supports the existence of at least one bound-state of this cluster. It is also shown that the existence of the hydrogen and positronium molecules is a sufficient condition for the fulfilment of the preceding theorem.
