    Hidden charm dynamically generated resonances and the e+e−→J/ψDDˉe^+e^-\to J/\psi D \bar D, J/ψDDˉ∗J/\psi D\bar D^* reactions

    Full text link
    We analyze two recent reactions of Belle, producing DDˉD\bar D and DDˉ∗D\bar D^* states that have an enhancement of the invariant DDˉD\bar D, DDˉ∗D\bar D^* mass distribution close to threshold, from the point of view that they might be indicative of the existence of a hidden charm scalar and an axial vector meson states below DDˉD\bar D or DDˉ∗D\bar D^* thresholds, respectively. We conclude that the data is compatible with the existing prediction of a hidden charm scalar meson with mass around 3700 MeV, though other possibilities cannot be discarded. The peak seen in the DDˉ∗D\bar D^* spectrum above threshold is, however, unlikely to be due to a threshold enhancement produced by the presence, below threshold, of the hidden charm axial vector meson X(3872).Comment: 5 pages, 5 figures, 2 table

    The radiative decay of ψ(3770)\psi(3770) into the predicted scalar state X(3700)

    Get PDF
    We calculate the radiative decay width of the ψ(3770)\psi(3770) into the dynamically generated scalar resonance X(3700) which is predicted in a previous paper. The results show that it is possible that the upgraded BEPC-II facility will generate enough statistics in order to observe this decay and thus confirm the existence of the X(3700).Comment: 5 pages, 1 figur

    Couplings in coupled channels versus wave functions: application to the X(3872) resonance

    Get PDF
    We perform an analytical study of the scattering matrix and bound states in problems with many physical coupled channels. We establish the relationship of the couplings of the states to the different channels, obtained from the residues of the scattering matrix at the poles, with the wave functions for the different channels. The couplings basically reflect the value of the wave functions around the origin in coordinate space. In the concrete case of the X(3872) resonance, understood as a bound state of \ddn and \ddc (and c.c.c.c.), with the \ddn loosely bound, we find that the couplings to the two channels are essentially equal leading to a state of good isospin I=0 character. This is in spite of having a probability for finding the \ddn state much larger than for \ddc since the loosely bound channel extends further in space. The analytical results, obtained with exact solutions of the Schr\"odinger equation for the wave functions, can be useful in general to interpret results found numerically in the study of problems with unitary coupled channels methods.Comment: 14 pages, 4 figure

    Radiative decays of dynamically generated charmed baryons

    Get PDF
    In this work we study the radiative decay of dynamically generated J^P=\oh^- charm baryons into the ground state J^P=\oh^+ baryons. Since different theoretical interpretations of these baryonic resonances, and in particular of the Λc(2595)\Lambda_c(2595), give different predictions, a precise experimental measurement of these decays would be an important step for understanding their nature.Comment: 10 pages, 1 figur

    Isospin breaking effects in the dynamical generation of the X(3872)

    Full text link
    We have studied isospin breaking effects in the X(3872) resonance and found a natural explanation for the branching fraction of the X decaying to J/ψJ/\psi with two and three pions being close to unit. Within our framework the X(3872) is a dynamically generated resonance in coupled channels. We also study the relationship between the couplings of the resonance to the coupled channels with its wave function, which further helps us to understand the isospin structure of the resonance.Comment: 5 pages, 1 figure.

    Charm at FAIR

    Full text link
    Charmed mesons in hot and dense matter are studied within a self-consistent coupled-channel approach for the experimental conditions of density and temperature expected at the CBM experiment at FAIR/GSI. The DD meson spectral function broadens with increasing density with an extended tail towards lower energies due to Λc(2593)N−1\Lambda_c(2593) N^{-1} and Σc(2800)N−1\Sigma_c(2800) N^{-1} excitations. The in-medium Dˉ\bar D meson mass increases with density. We also discuss the consequences for the renormalized properties in nuclear matter of the charm scalar Ds0(2317)D_{s0}(2317) and D(2400), and the predicted hidden charm X(3700) resonances at FAIR energies.Comment: 6 pages, 3 figures, to appear in the proceedings of ExcitedQCD 09, Zakopane, Poland, 8-14 February 200

    Dynamically Generated Open and Hidden Charm Meson Systems

    Get PDF
    We will study open and hidden charm scalar meson resonances within two different models. The first one is a direct application of a chiral Lagrangian already used to study flavor symmetry breaking in Skyrme models. In another approach to the problem a SU(4) symmetric Lagrangian is built and the symmetry is broken down to SU(3) by identifying currents where heavy mesons are exchanged and suppressing those. Unitarization in couple channels leads to dynamical generation of resonances in both models, in particular a new hidden charm resonance with mass 3.7 GeV is predicted. The small differences between these models and with previous works will be discussed.Comment: 32 pages, 10 figures.

    Exotic dynamically generated baryons with C=−=-1

    Full text link
    We follow a model based on the SU(8) symmetry for the interaction of mesons with baryons. The model treats on an equal footing the pseudo-scalars and the vector mesons, as required by heavy quark symmetry. The T-matrix calculated within an unitary scheme in coupled channels has poles which are interpreted as baryonic resonances.Comment: 5 pages.

    Radiative decay of the dynamically generated open and hidden charm scalar meson resonances D_{s0}^*(2317) and X(3700)

    We present the formalism for the decay of dynamically generated scalar mesons with open- or hidden-charm and give results for the decay of D^*_{s0} (2317) to \gamma D_s^* plus that of a hidden charm scalar meson state predicted by the theory around 3700 MeV decaying into \gamma J/\psi.Comment: Appendix adde
