The real-space coordinate representation of two spinon wave function for the Haldane-Shastry model based on the spinon coordinates analyzed the nature of spinon interaction and its physical effects. The spinon attraction with one another gets stronger as the size of the system is increased and the power law with which the susceptibility diverges was determined within the thermodynamic limit.
