Abstract

Abstract In the framework of the one-boson-exchange model the approximate analytical expression for the deuteron wave function (WF) at relativistic relative momenta is obtained. The WF depends on the extra variable having the form of a unit vector and is determined by six functions instead of two (S- and D-waves) for the non-relativistic case. At moderate momenta the WF is matched with the WF in the Reid model. The importance of indicating the qualitative observed phenomena associated with the change of parametrization and spin structure of the relativistic deuteron WF in comparison with the non-relativistic one is emphasized.
