Baryonium study in heavy baryon chiral perturbation theory
Physical Review D
To see whether heavy baryon and anti-baryon can form a bound state, the heavy baryonium, we study the interaction potential between them in terms of heavy baryon perturbation theory. The obtained potential is applied to calculate the heavy baryonium masses by solving Schrödinger equation. We find it is true that the heavy baryonium may exist in a reasonable choice of input parameters. The uncertainties remaining in the potential and their influences on the heavy baryonium mass spectrum are discussed.
