Quick question on positronium:

  1. Aug 31, 2007 #1
    Though very short lived, how do we view the couple? As a single electron shell, distant from the "nucleus"/positron. Are the energy levels the same as if you view it as a positron shell around an electron nucleus? Or do we just model it as a pair of charged particles in QM distribution about a central point.
