Hybrid mesons from a potential model

The elementary particle called quarks combine together to form mesons. For heavy quarks the masses of the mesons can be obtained by numerically solving Schrodinger’s equation (from quantum mechanics) with a suitable potential (see http://de.arxiv.org/abs/0805.2704 for example). The potential can be modified to predict the masses of hybrid mesons. The aim of the project is write a code to solve Schrodinger’s equation to compute the masses of heavy mesons and hybrid mesons.
