@article{Itzhaki2004IsA, title={Is $\Theta$+(1540) a kaon–skyrmion resonance?}, author={N. Itzhaki and I. Klebanov and P. Ouyang and L. Rastelli}, journal={Nuclear Physics}, year={2004}, volume={684}, pages={264-280} }

Abstract We reconsider the relationship between the bound state and the SU (3) rigid rotator approaches to strangeness in the Skyrme model. For non-exotic S =−1 baryons the bound state approach matches for small m K onto the rigid rotator approach, and the bound state mode turns into the rotator zero-mode. However, for small m K , we find no S =+1 kaon bound states or resonances in the spectrum, confirming previous work. This suggests that, at least for large N and small m K , the exotic… Expand
