# Cheshire cat hadrons

@article{Rho1993CheshireCH, title={Cheshire cat hadrons}, author={M. Rho}, journal={Physics Reports}, year={1993}, volume={240}, pages={1-142} }

Abstract This article is based on a series of lectures given at ELAF 93 on the description of low-energy hadronic systems in and out of hadronic medium. The focus is put on identifying, with the help of a Cheshire Cat philosophy, the effective degrees of freedom relevant for the strong interactions from a certain number of generic symmetry properties of QCD. The matters treated are the ground-state and excited-state properties of light- and heavy-quark baryons and applications to nuclei and… Expand

Abstract The total energy in the two-phase chiral bag model is studied, including the contribution due to the bag (Casimir energy plus energy of the valence quarks), as well as the one coming from… Expand

Baryon as a Quantum Hall Droplet and the Cheshire Cat Principle

- Physics

We show that the recent proposal to describe the $N_f=1$ baryon in the large number of color limit as a quantum Hall droplet, can be understood as a chiral bag in a 1+2 dimensional strip using the… Expand

Baryons in a covariant and confining diquark - quark model

- Physics
- 1998

In a covariant model where constituent quarks and diquarks interact through quark exchange, the Bethe-Salpeter equation in ladder approximation for octet and decuplet baryons is solved. Quark and… Expand

Model of a hybrid chiral bag involving constituent quarks

- Physics
- 2001

A three-phase modification of the hybrid quark-bag model is considered. In addition to the asymptotic-freedom and the hadronization phase, it includes the intermediate phase of constituent quarks. In… Expand

The nucleon as a holographic Cheshire cat

- Physics

Abstract The Cheshire cat principle emerges naturally from the holographic approach of the nucleon in terms of a bulk instanton. The cat hides in the holographic direction. I briefly review the… Expand

Fractionalized Quasiparticles and the Hadron-Quark Duality in Dense Baryonic Matter

Drawing from certain analogies to highly correlated condensed matter, I sketch an admittedly speculative scenario on how baryonic matter could turn into a Fermi liquid of fractionalized baryons… Expand

Renormalization of the casimir energy in the (1+1)-dimensional fermion-bag models

The ground-state energy in the two-phase hybrid chiral fermion-bag model involving boson-fermion interaction is studied in (1+1)-dimensional spacetime. A procedure for renormalizing the divergent… Expand

A new topological “twist” to BR scaling

Abstract When vector mesons are considered on the same footing as pions as suggested by hidden local symmetry, the property of the nuclear tensor forces is strongly controlled by the behavior of the… Expand

Abstract Chiral symmetry, first entering in nuclear physics in the 1970s for which Gerry Brown played a seminal role, has led to a stunningly successful framework for describing strongly-correlated… Expand

Abstract Using the existing knowledge of the chromodynamic vacuum as a basis we investigate mesons built from u, d, s quarks and/or gluons. A new classification of hadrons is proposed which reflects… Expand

Abstract We show that when “strong” vector mesons are suitably incorporated, the SU(3) skyrmion model of Callan and Klebanov works very well to O ( 1 N c ) . A simplified model with an ω and φ is… Expand

Charmed baryons as soliton - D meson bound states

We show that charmed baryons are remarkably well described as bound states of the D mesons with a soliton. The scheme exploits the isospin-spin transmutation that takes place when a doublet… Expand

Abstract We evaluate the leading correction to the classical skyrmion mass, that is, the Casimir energy. We use a method which is well defined in the chiral limit. The main ultraviolet divergence is… Expand
