Benedek Bukor:
What about quarkonia in the (non)commutative space?

Quarkonium bound states are especially promising candidates to test the probable quantum structure of space-time, since they represent a system with reasonably small characteristic distance. The quantum mechanical interaction between the quarks is heuristically described by the Cornell potential. Firstly, we investigate this system in the 3-dimensional smooth space. Thereafter, we insert it into a rotationally invariant space which is composed of concentric fuzzy spheres of increasing radius, called the fuzzy onion, in order to extract some consequences of the non-trivial structure on the quarks' properties.
