We point out that the spectrum of pseudoscalar and scalar mesons exhibits a quasidegenerate chiral nonet in the energy region around 1.4 GeV whose scalar component has a slightly inverted spectrum. Based on the empirical linear rising of the mass of a hadron with the number of constituent quarks which yields a mass around 1.4 GeV for tetraquarks, we conjecture that this quasichiral nonet arises from the mixing of a chiral nonet composed of tetraquarks with conventional q-barq states. We explore…

Phenomenology of axial-vector and pseudovector mesons: decays and mixing in the kaonic sector
We study the decays of the lightest axial-vector and pseudovector mesons, interpreted as quark-antiquark states, into a vector and a pseudoscalar meson. We show that the quarkonium assignment
Chiral approach to phi radiative decays
The radiative decays of the phi meson are known to be a good source of information about the a{sub 0}(980) and f{sub 0}(980) scalar mesons. We discuss these decays starting from a nonlinear model
Excited scalar and pseudoscalar mesons in the extended linear sigma model
An in-depth study of masses and decays of excited scalar and pseudoscalar states in the Extended Linear Sigma Model (eLSM), which contains ground-state scalar, pseudosCalar, vector and axial-vector mesons.
The Bridge Between Chiral Lagrangians and QCD Sum-Rules
The scalar-isovector sector in the extended Linear Sigma Model
We study basic properties of scalar hadronic resonances within the so-called extended Linear Sigma Model (eLSM), which is an effective model of QCD based on chiral symmetry and dilatation invariance.
Spontaneous breaking of chiral symmetry, and eventually of parity, in a σ-model with two Mexican hats
A σ-model with two linked Mexican hats is discussed. This scenario could be realized in low-energy QCD when the ground state and the first excited (pseudo)scalar mesons are included, and where not
Low-energy limit of the extended Linear Sigma Model
Abstract.The extended Linear Sigma Model is an effective hadronic model based on the linear realization of chiral symmetry $ SU(N_{f})_{L} \times SU(N_{f})_{R}$SU(Nf)L×SU(Nf)R , with (pseudo)scalar


Spontaneous breakdown and the scalar nonet
In the context of the QCD quark model and on the basis of dynamical Bethe-Salpeter ladder graphs, we suggest that (i) the existence of the scalar q-barq hadron multiplet, like the pseudoscalar q-barq
A low lying scalar meson nonet in a unitarized meson model
AbstractA unitarized non-relativistic meson model which is successful for the description of the heavy and light vector and pseudo-scalar mesons yields in its extension to the scalar mesons for the
Scalar mesons above and below 1 GeV
We show that two nonets and a glueball provide a consistent description of data on scalar mesons below 1.7 GeV. Above 1 GeV the states form a conventional q nonet mixed with the glueball of lattice
Understanding the scalar meson $$q\bar q$$ nonet
It is shown that one can fit the available data on thea o(980),f o(1300) andK o * (1430) mesons as a distorted 0++ $$q\bar q$$ nonet using very few (5–6) parameters and an improved version
Meson-meson interactions in a nonperturbative chiral approach
A nonperturbative method which combines constraints from chiral symmetry breaking and coupled channel unitarity is used to describe the meson-meson interaction up to about 1.2 GeV. The approach uses
Mechanism for a next-to-lowest lying scalar meson nonet
Recent work suggests the existence of a nonconventional lowest-lying scalar nonet containing the a{sub 0}(980). Then the a{sub 0}(1450) and also the K{sub 0}{sup *}(1430) are likely candidates to
N/D description of two meson amplitudes and chiral symmetry
The most general structure of an elastic partial wave amplitude when the unphysical cuts are neglected is deduced in terms of the N/D method. This result is then matched to lowest order,
