    HADRON05 Summary: Heavy Quark Hadrons and Theory

    Full text link
    This HADRON05 summary covers the topics of (1) mesons containing heavy quarks, and (2) theory. The new material discussed here is taken mainly from plenary presentations. We specifically emphasize new or recent results in spectroscopy that are likely to appear in future editions of the PDG. An exception is made for the pentaquark, which has now been withdrawn. We undoubtedly have something important to (re)learn about multiquarks from the pentaquark saga, and this merits a phrase in Portuguese. The three general areas we consider are: I. QQbar spectroscopy, II. Qqbar spectroscopy, and III. lessons from the pentaquark. Finally, in Section IIIb. we conclude with "Our moment of Zen".Comment: 14 pages, 10 eps figures.

    Photoproduction of Hybrid Mesons

    Full text link
    In this contribution I discuss prospects for photoproducing hybrid mesons at CEBAF, based on recent model results and experimental indications of possible hybrids. One excellent opportunity appears to be a search for the I=1, JPC=2+-, neutral "(b2)o" hybrid in (a2 pi)o through diffractive photoproduction. Other notable possibilities accessible through pi+ or pio exchange photoproduction are I=1, JPC=1-+, charged "pi1+" in f1 pi+, (b1 pi)+ and (rho pi)+; piJ(1770)+ in f2 pi+ and (b1 pi)+; pi(1800)+ in f0 pi+, f2 pi+, omega rho+ and (rho pi)+; a1 in f1 pi+ and f2 pi+; and omega in (rho pi)o, omega eta and (K1 K)o.Comment: 5 pages, 3 postscript figures.

    MESON2000 Conference Summary

    Full text link
    This short contribution is a {\it lite} MESON2000 conference summary. As appropriate for the 600th anniversary of the Jagellonian University, it begins with a brief summary of the last 600 years of European history and its place in hadron physics. Next a ``physicist chirality'' order parameter PC is introduced. When applied to MESON2000 plenary speakers this order parameter illustrates the separation of hadron physicists into disjoint communities. The individual plenary talks in MESON2000 are next sorted according to the subconference associated with each of the 36 plenary speakers. Finally, I conclude with a previously unreported Feynman story regarding the use of models in hadron physics.Comment: 11 pages, 3 figures, uses appolb.cps and epsfig.

    Update on Charmonium Theory

    Full text link
    In this invited presentation I review some recent developments in the theory of charmonium that appear likely to be of importance for future experimental studies in this field. The specific areas considered are double charmonium production, LQCD studies of charmonium, recent results for hadron loops, c-cbar production cross sections at PANDA, charm molecules, and two recent developments, "charmiscelleny".Comment: 8 pp., 3 figures.

    Psi to N Nbar m

    Full text link
    In this invited talk I discuss two recent applications of charmonium (Psi) decays to N Nbar m final states, where N is a nucleon and m is a light meson. There are several motivations for studying these decays: 1) They are useful for the study of N* spectroscopy; 2) they can be used to estimate cross sections for the associated charmonium production processes p pbar to Psi m, which PANDA plans to exploit in searches for charmonium hybrid exotics; and 3) they may allow the direct experimental measurement of NNm (meson-nucleon) strong couplings, which provide crucial input information for meson exchange models of the NN force. The latter two topics are considered in this talk, which will also compare results from a simple hadron pole model of these decays to recent experimental data.Comment: Invited contribution to Charm2010 (Fourth International Workshop on Charm Physics), Beijing, China, 21-24 Oct. 2010. 3 pages, 3 figures, uses epsfi

    QCD Spectroscopy at Gsi: Exotica and Charmonia

    Get PDF
    In this talk I give a short summary of the basics of conventional and exotic meson spectroscopy, and consider in particular those issues in the charmonium and charmonium hybrid sectors which can be addressed by a future antiproton facility at GSI.Comment: 14 pages, 5 figures.

    Exotic Mesons, Theory and Experiment

    Full text link
    In this talk I summarize the status of exotic mesons, including both theoretical expectations and experimental candidates. The current experimental candidates are ``spin-parity exotics''; since these are most often considered possible hybrid mesons, the theoretical discussion will be mainly concerned with hybrids. The exotic meson candidates discussed are the surprisingly light pi_1(1400) and pi_1(1600).Comment: 13 pages, 3 figures, uses aipproc.sty, appolb.cls and epsfig.sty.
