$X(3872)$, $X_b$, and the $\chi_{b1}(3P)$ state

We discuss the possible production and discovery channels in $e^+e^-$ and $pp$ machines of the $X_b$, the bottomonium counterpart of $X(3872)$ and the putative isoscalar analogue of the charged bottomonium-like states $Z_b$ discovered by Belle. We suggest that the $X_b$ may be close in mass to the bottomonium state $\chi_{b1}(3P)$, mixing with it and sharing its decay channels, just as $X(3872)$ is likely a mixture of a $\bar D D^*$ molecule and $\chi_{c1}(2P)$. Consequently, the experiments… Expand

Analysis of X(3872) production via heavy meson effective theory
We analyze the $X(3872)$ production in the processes $ \bar{D} D \rightarrow \pi X $, $\bar{D}^* D \rightarrow \pi X $ and $\bar{D}^* D^* \rightarrow \pi X $, making use of the Heavy-Meson EffectiveExpand
Observation of the χ_{b1}(3P) and χ_{b2}(3P) and Measurement of their Masses.
This is the first time that the J=1 and 2 states are well resolved and their masses individually measured, and they are determined with respect to the world-average value of the ϒ(3S) mass, which has an uncertainty of 0.5 MeV. Expand
Bottomonium spectrum with a Dirac potential model in the momentum space
We study the bottomonium spectrum using a relativistic potential model in the momentum space. This model is based on a complete one gluon exchange interaction with a momentum dependent screeningExpand
The hidden-charm pentaquark and tetraquark states
In the past decade many charmonium-like states were observed experimentally. Especially those charged charmonium-like $Z_c$ states and bottomonium-like $Z_b$ states can not be accommodated within theExpand
Threshold corrections of χc(2P) and χb(3P) states and J/ψρ and J/ψω transitions of the X(3872) in a coupled-channel model

Quark structure of the $X(3872)$ and $\chi_b(3P)$ resonances
We discuss the nature of the ${\ensuremath{\chi}}_{b}(3P)$ and $X(3872)$ mesons. Are the ${\ensuremath{\chi}}_{b}(3P)$'s standard $b\overline{b}$ mesons or $b\overline{b}$ states with a significativeExpand
