supersymmetry, quark models, skyrmions


A quark model with potentials derived from QCD that include antiquark-diquark model for excited hadrons leads to mass formulae in very good agreement with experiments. The approximate symmetries and supersymmetries of the hadronic spectrum are exploited including a symmetry breaking mechanism.
