Based on the recently developed light-front similarity renormalization group approach and the light-front heavy quark effective theory, we derive analytically from QCD a heavy quark light-front Hamiltonian which contains explicitly a confinement interaction at long distances and a Coulomb-type interaction at short distances. With this light-front QCD Hamiltonian, we further demonstrate that the nonperturbative QCD dynamics of the strongly interacting heavy hadron bound states can be treated as a weak-coupling problem.
