The Mass Spectrum of a Static Adjoint Particle

Abstract

The bound states of fermions in the adjoint representation are of interest in supersymmetric models. We investigate the energy spectrum of the simplest -- the gluino-gluon bound states -- on several lattices in the quenched approximation. We use a static approximation for the gluino propagator. We find continuum limits of the splitting between the few lowest states, with the energy difference between the two lowest states of 354±9354 \pm 9 MeV.Comment: 3 pages, Latex, to appear Lattice 97 proceding
