Quantum Field Theory

Dear physicists
I have a question about the plots of wave functions of quarkonia. Why their plots are Gaussian like? For example the ground state figure for charmonia is like:

Please give me a brief explanation.

Welcome to the forum!

Your attachment is not visible so I can't tell what it is that you're referring to. No particle has a fixed wave function. Only certain wave functions have probability densities which are Gaussian. Any particle can have a wavefunction like that. The meson that you're referring to is no different. Also, this has very little to do with quantum field theory.
