In the following subsections, we employ the obtained results in the previous section to determine the mass spectra of scalar, vector, pseudoscalar, and pseudovector of B, [B.sub.s], D, and [D.sub.s] mesons in the N-dimensional space in comparison with the experimental data (PDG 2016)  and with other recent studies.
In Table 5, we observe that all the values of pseudovector mesons are close to the experimental results except the value of B meson which is in good agreement with the experimental value.
The unit pseudovector [??] points along local average uniaxial LC orientational ordering, exhibiting head-to-tail symmetry (i.e., states [+ or -][??] are physically equivalent).
For any two vectors [??] = ([x.sub.1], [x.sub.2], [x.sub.3]) and [??] = ([y.sub.1], [y.sub.2], [y.sub.3]) in the space [R.sup.3.sub.1], the pseudovector product of [??] and [??] is defined by
For any [??] = ([x.sub.1], [x.sub.2], [x.sub.3]) and [??] = ([y.sub.1], [y.sub.2], [y.sub.3]) in the space [R.sup.3.sub.1], the pseudovector product of [??] and [??] is defined by
* [F.sub.i][[OMEGA]*i] = 0, so the acting gravitational inertial force [F.sub.i] is orthogonal to the space rotation pseudovector [[OMEGA]*.sup.i];
where besides the vector components [p.sup.[mu]] we have the scalar component [mu], the 2-vector components [S.sup.[mu]v], that are connected to the spin as shown by ; the pseudovector components [[pi].sup.[mu]] and the pseudoscalar component m.
If we relate a pseudovectors [t.sub.i] to these rototranslations, in analogy with the two-dimensional planar lattice we can define reciprocal pseudovectors [t.sup.*.sub.i] such that
