Polkinghorne's exact perturbation-theory equation for the leading Regge trajectory resulting from an infinite sum of ladder diagrams is shown to be mathematically equivalent to the partial-wave Bethe-Salpeter equation. Thus, the perturbation-theory equation can be used not only for the leading Regge trajectory, but for all secondary trajectories as well.
