Nullplane invariance of Hamiltonian nullplane dynamics.
Abstract
Relativistic Hamiltonian fewbody dynamics [1,2] involves two unitary representations of the Poincare group on the Hilbert space H of physical states, with and without interactions. These two representations, U({Lambda}, a) and U{sub 0}({Lambda},a), coincide for a kinematic subgroup H. The ''Hamiltonians'' are the generators not in the Lie algebra of the kinematic subgroup. The kinematic subgroup of nullplane dynamics leaves the nullplane z {center_dot} x {triple_bond} x{sup 0} + x{sub 3} = 0 invariant. Fewbody Hamiltonians satisfying the required commutation relations can be constructed as functions of a mass operator and kinematic quantities. For more than two particles there are nontrivial problems in satisfying cluster separability. [3] Consistency of electroweak interactions with strong interactions also involves significant problems: Poincare covariance of current operators requires the construction of appropriate interaction currents.

Dynamicsindependent null experiment for testing timereversal invariance
It is shown that it is impossible to construct, in any reaction in atomic, nuclear, or particle physics, a null experiment that would unambiguously test the validity of timereversal invariance independently of dynamical assumptions. 
Hadronic transition amplitudes under nullplane BetheSalpeter dynamics
A twotier form of the BetheSalpeter (BS) framework is employed for the evaluation of a few typical transition amplitudes involving strong and electromagnetic decays of qqbar hadrons with Lgreater than or equal to0. The twotier BS framework, whose rationale has been described in some recent publications, is characterized by (i) a threedimensional reduction of the BS equation under the nullplane ansatz to make a first contact with mass spectral data and (ii) a reconstructed fourdimensional BS wave function to restore the virtual qqbar effects (higher Fock states) for the evaluation of hadronic transition amplitudes through the lowestorder Feynman (quarktriangle) diagrams.more » 
Nullplane formulation of BetheSalpeter qqq dynamics: Baryon mass spectra
The BetheSalpeter (BS) equation for a qqq system is formulated in the nullplane approximation (NPA) for the BS wave function, as a direct generalization of a corresponding QCDmotivated formalism developed earlier for qqbar systems. The confinement kernel is assumed vector type (..gamma../sub ..mu..//sup (1)/..gamma../sub ..mu..//sup (2)/) for both qqbar and qq pairs, with identical harmonic structures, and with the spring constant proportional, among other things, to the running coupling constant ..cap alpha../sub s/ (for an explicit QCD motivation). The harmonic kernel is given a suitable Lorentzinvariant definition (not D'Alembertian/sup 2/delta/sup 4/(q)), which is amenable to NPA reduction in a covariantmore »
