Abstract

It is argued that the charmonium 3P state spectrum does not require the confining potential to be a Lorentz scalar. A nonrelativistic spin-potential is parameterized in a way that is compatible with electric confinement and the known 3P state masses. The 3D1 mass is then computed to be 3762 MeV, which compares quite favorably with the experimental value of 3770 ± 3 MeV.
