    Hypercentral constituent quark model and isospin dependence

    Get PDF
    The constituent quark model based on a hypercentral approach takes into account three-body force effects and standard two-body potential contributions. The quark potential contains a hypercentral interaction, to which a hyperfine term is added. While the hypercentral potential supplies good values for the centroid energies of the resonance multiplets and a realistic set of quark wave functions, the hyperfine splittings are sometimes not sufficient to account for the observed masses. In this work we have introduced an improved form of the hyperfine interaction and an isospin dependent quark potential. The resulting description of the baryon spectrum is very good, also for the Roper resonance, specially thanks to the flavour dependent interaction.Comment: 12 pages, 2 figures, accepted by Eur. Phys.

    Masses and magnetic moments of pentaquarks

    Full text link
    We discuss the spectroscopy of pentaquarks. The quantum numbers of the ground state depend on the interplay between spin-flavor and orbital contributions to the energy. The magnetic moments of the lowest pentaquark state with negative and positive parity are found to be 0.382 \mu_N and 0.089 \mu_n, respectively.Comment: 15 pages, 4 figures, 3 tables (text rewritten, extra figure added, essential results unchanged

    Extra S11 and P13 in the Hypercentral Constituent Quark Model

    Get PDF
    We report on the recent results of the hypercentral Constituent Quark Model (hCQM). The model contains a spin independent three-quark interaction which is inspired by Lattice QCD calculations and reproduces the average energy values of the SU(6) multiplets. The splittings within each multiplet are obtained with a SU(6)-breaking interaction, which can include also an isospin dependent term. All the 3- and 4-stars resonances are well reproduced. Moreover, as all the Constituent Quark models, the hCQM predicts ``missing'' resonances ({\em e.g.} extra S11S11 and P13P13 states) which can be of some help for the experimental identification of new resonances. The model provides also a good description of the medium Q2Q^2-behavior of the electromagnetic transition form factors. In particular the calculated helicity amplitude A1/2A_{{1/2}} for the S11(1535)S_{11}(1535) resonance agrees very well with the recent CLAS data. More recently, the elastic nucleon form factors have been calculated using a relativistic version of the hCQM and a relativistic quark current.Comment: 7 pages,3 figures, Talk given at NStar 2002 workshop on the physics of excited nucleons, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, October 9-12, 200

    Mass spectrum of pentaquarks

    Full text link
    We discuss the properties of the pentaquark in a collective stringlike model with a nonplanar configuration of the four quarks and the antiquark. In an application to the mass spectrum of exotic Theta baryons, we find that the ground state pentaquark has angular momentum and parity J(p)=1/2(-) and a small magnetic moment of 0.382 nuclear magnetons. The decay width is suppressed by the spatial overlap with the decay products.Comment: 8 pages, 3 figures, 1 table, invited talk at 23rd International Workshop on Nuclear Theory, June 14-19, 2004, Rila, Bulgari
