Hadronic decays


Hadronic decays and transitions are a key ingredient of hadronic physics. I discuss how hadronic decays can be explored in lattice gauge theory and review studies undertaken. I also discuss the impact of decays on masses and how lattice studies can explore the nature of a hadronic state: namely whether it is a molecular or quark-antiquark state. A brief discussion of lattice exploration of pentaquark states is presented.Comment: 14 pages, plenary talk at Lattice 2005, Dublin, July 25-3
