    In this letter, we propose interpolating currents for the X(3872) resonance, and show that, in the Heavy Quark limit of QCD, the X(3872) state should have degenerate partners, independent of its internal structure. Magnitudes of possible I=0 and I=1 components of the X(3872) are also discussed.Comment: 12 page

    Long-distance structure of the X(3872)

    We investigate heavy quark symmetries for heavy meson hadronic molecules, and explore the consequences of assuming the X(3872) and Zb(10610)Z_b(10610) as an isoscalar DDˉ∗D\bar D^* and an isovector BBˉ∗B\bar B^* hadronic molecules, respectively. The symmetry allows to predict new hadronic molecules, in particular we find an isoscalar 1++1^{++} BBˉ∗B\bar B^* bound state with a mass about 10580 MeV and the isovector charmonium partners of the Zb(10610)Z_b(10610) and the Zb(10650)Z_b(10650) states. Next, we study the X(3872)→D0Dˉ0π0X(3872) \to D^0 \bar D^0\pi^0 three body decay. This decay mode is more sensitive to the long-distance structure of the X(3872) resonance than its J/ψππJ/\psi\pi\pi and J/ψ3πJ/\psi3\pi decays, which are mainly controlled by the short distance part of the X(3872) molecular wave function. We discuss the D0Dˉ0D^0 \bar D^0 final state interactions, which in some situations become quite important. Indeed in these cases, a precise measurement of this partial decay width could provide precise information on the interaction strength between the D(∗)Dˉ(∗)D^{(*)}\bar D^{(*)} charm mesons.Comment: Talk presented at the "XI International Conference on Hyperons, Charm and Beauty Hadrons (BEACH 2014)", Birmingham (U.K.), July 201

    Heavy quark spin symmetry and SU(3)-flavour partners of the X (3872)

    Get PDF
    In this work, an Effective Field Theory (EFT) incorporating light SU(3)-flavour and heavy quark spin symmetries is used to describe charmed meson-antimeson bound states. At Lowest Order (LO), this means that only contact range interactions among the heavy meson and antimeson fields are involved. Besides, the isospin violating decays of the X(3872) will be used to constrain the interaction between the D and a (D) over bar* mesons in the isovector channel. Finally, assuming that the X(3915) and Y(4140) resonances are D* (D) over bar* and D-s* (D) over bar (s)* molecular states, we can determine the four Low Energy Constants (LECs) of the EFT that appear at LO and, therefore, the full spectrum of molecular states with isospin I = 0, 1/2 and 1

    BsB_s mesons: semileptonic and nonleptonic decays

    Full text link
    In this contribution we compute some nonleptonic and semileptonic decay widths of BsB_s mesons, working in the context of constituent quark models \cite{Albertus:2014gba, Albertus:2014bfa}. For the case of semileptonic decays we consider reactions leading to kaons or different JÏ€J^\pi DsD_s mesons. The study of nonleptonic decays has been done in the factorisation approximation and includes the final states enclosed in Table 2.Comment: Contribution to the proceedings of the MESON 2014 Conference. 2 tables, 2 figure

    Hidden charm and bottom molecular states

    We investigate heavy quark symmetries for heavy light meson-antimeson systems in a contact-range effective field theory. In the SU(3) light flavor limit, the leading order Lagrangian respecting heavy quark spin symmetry contains four independent counter-terms. Neglecting 1/mQ corrections, three of these low energy constants can be determ1ined by theorizing a molecular description of the X(3872) and Zb(10610) states. Thus, we can predict new hadronic molecules, in particular the isovector charmonium partners of the Zb(10610) and the Zb(10650) states. We also discuss hadron molecules composed of a heavy meson and a doubly-heavy baryon, which would be related to the heavy meson-antimeson molecules thanks to the heavy antiquark-diquark symmetry. Finally, we also study the X(3872)→D0D¯0π0 decay, which is not only sensitive to the short distance part of the X(3872) molecular wave function, as the J/ψππ and J/ψ3π X(3872) decay modes are, but it is also affected by the long-distance structure of the resonance. Furthermore, this decay might provide some information on the interaction between the DD¯ charm mesons

    Three methods to detect the predicted DDˉ scalar meson X(3700)

    In analogy to the f(0)(500), which appears as a pi pi resonance in chiral unitary theory, and the f(0)(980), which appears as a quasibound K (K) over bar state, the extension of this approach to the charm sector also predicts a quasibound D (D) over bar state with mass around 3720 MeV, named as X(3700), for which some experimental support is seen in the e(+)e(-) -> J/psi D (D) over bar reaction close to the D (D) over bar threshold. In the present work we propose three different experiments to observe it as a clear peak. The first one is the radiative decay of the psi(3770), psi(3770) -> gamma X(3700) -> gamma eta eta'. The second one proposes the analogous reaction psi(4040) -> gamma X(3700) -> gamma eta eta' and the third reaction is the e(+)e(-) -> J/psi X(3700) -> J/psi eta eta'. Neat peaks are predicted for all the reactions and the calculated rates are found within measurable range in present facilities
