We discuss the shape of threshold signals in production cross sections of the reaction e+e− → D**, at the opening of the Ds*s* and Λc+Λc− channels. Furthermore, evidence for the ψ(3D), ψ(5S), ψ(4D), ψ(6S), ψ(5D), ψ(7S), ψ(6D), and ψ(8S) new charmonium vector resonances is presented, on the basis of data recently published by the BABAR Collaboration. Central masses and resonance widths are estimated. Confirmation of these resonances would be a huge step in lifting the precision level of hadron…

Is Upsilon(10580) really Upsilon(4S)
We analyse electron-positron data for b-bbar production published by the BABAR Collaboration, in the invariant-mass interval delimited by the B-Bbar and Lambda(b)-Lambda(b) thresholds. In particular,
Exes and why Z? Some charming and beautiful observations
Threshold enhancements like the X(4660) and depletion effects as the X(4260) are listed as c-cbar resonances in the Particle Data Group tables. We will discuss these observations, and present a list
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 the
A review of the open charm and open bottom systems.
This work reviews the experimental and theoretical progress in this field and reports on the discovery of two narrow charm-strange states and more excited heavy hadrons reported in 2003.
Holographic model for heavy-vector-meson masses
The experimentally observed spectra of heavy-vector-meson radial excitations show a dependence on two different energy parameters. One is associated with the quark mass and the other with the binding
A new decay mode of higher charmonium
We calculate the $$\Lambda _c{\bar{\Lambda }}_c$$ΛcΛ¯c partial decay width of the excited vector charmonium states around 4.6 GeV with the quark pair creation model. We find that the partial decay
The quark-antiquark spectrum from upside down
We argue that the spectra of quark-antiquark systems should better be studied from higher radial excitations and, in particular, from configurations with well-defined quantum numbers, rather than
On the existence of a superlight scalar boson
In this lecture we show that the study of hadronic resonances is severely ham- pered by the lack of accurate data and, moreover, that for similar reason the study of Weak substructure does not make
Evidence for the psi(5S) and psi(4D) c-cbar vector resonances
We present evidence for the psi(5S) and psi(4D) c-cbar vector resonances in experimental data published by the Belle and BaBar Collaborations. Central masses and resonance widths are estimated.
Modeling two-boson mass distributions, E(38 MeV) and Z(57.5 GeV)
Besides general features of two-boson mass distributions, experimental results are are discussed. Furthermore, E(38 MeV) and Z(57.5 GeV) are highlighted.


Higher Charmonia
This paper gives results for the spectrum, all allowed E1 radiative partial widths (and some important M1 widths) and all open-charm strong decay amplitudes of all 40 c-cbar states expected up to the
Evidence of a broad structure at an invariant mass of 4.32 GeV/c2 in the reaction e+e- --> pi+pi-psi(2S) measured at BABAR.
We present a measurement of the cross section of the process e(+)e(-)-->pi(+)pi(-)psi(2S) from threshold up to 8 GeV center-of-mass energy using events containing initial-state radiation, produced at
Observation of new structure in the e+e- cross section above the Upsilon (4S).
Measurements of the e/sup +/e/sup -/ cross section above BB-bar threshold are reported and average charged multiplicities and inclusive lepton yields are presented.
DsJ(2860) as the first radial excitation of Ds0*(2317).
A coupled-channel model previously employed to describe the narrow Ds0*(2317) and broad D0*(2400) charmed scalar mesons is generalized so as to include all ground-state pseudoscalar-pseudoscalar and
The classification of scalar and vector mesons is reviewed within the framework of the Resonance-Spectrum Expansion (RSE). This method allows a simple and straightforward description of non-exotic
Charmonium Decays of Y(4260), psi(4160), and psi(4040).
15 charmonium decay modes of the psi(4040), psi(4160), and Y(4260) resonances are investigated and upper limits are placed on other decay rates from all three resonances.
Radial Spectra and Hadronic Decay Widths of Light and Heavy Mesons
A potential model for mesons is presented, which combines quark confinement and strong decay in a realistic approach. The multichannel Schroedinger formalism is employed to describe a system of one
Observation of two resonant structures in e+ e- -->pi+ pi- psi(2S) via initial-state radiation at Belle.
The cross section for e+ e- --> pi+ pi- psi(2S) between threshold and sqrt[s]=5.5 GeV is measured using 673 fb(-1) of data on and off the Upsilon(4S) resonance collected with the Belle detector at
Multichannel calculation of excited vector {phi} resonances and the {phi}(2170)
A multichannel calculation of excited J{sup PC}=1{sup --}{phi} states is carried out within a generalization of the resonance-spectrum expansion, which may shed light on the classification of the
Possible ?(5S), ?(4D), ?(6S), and ?(5D) signals in
It is shown that the Λc+Λc- signal recently reported by the Belle Collaboration (Phys. Rev. Lett., 101 (2008) 172001) contains clear signs of the ψ(5S) and the ψ(4D) c--> vector states, and also some
