A model recently introduced by Jaffe and Wilczek based on the quarks being dynamically bound into diquarks has been used to predict that the recently observed exotic baryons (pentaquarks) fall into a nearly ideally mixed combination of an octer and anti-decuplet representations of SU(3) flavor. The model predicts two states with nucleon quantum numbers which have tentatively been identified with the N*(1440) and the N*(1710). This paper examines the viability of this model by focusing on the… Expand

The Mass structure of SU(3) baryon antidecuplet and pion muon mass difference
We show that the mass intervals among the pentaquark baryons $\Theta^{+}$, $N^{*}(1685)$ and $\Xi_{3/2}^{-}$ proposed to be the members of the SU(3) antidecuplet are exact integral multiples of theExpand
SU(3) baryon resonance multiplets in large N
Abstract We extend the recently developed treatment of baryon resonances in large N c QCD to describe resonance multiplets collected according to the SU(3) flavor symmetry that includes strangeExpand
Notes on exotic anti-decuplet of baryons
We emphasize the importance of identifying non-exotic SU(3) partners of the Theta^+ pentaquark, and indicate possible ways how to do it. We also use the soliton picture of baryons to relate ReggeonExpand
Phenomenology of spin 3/2 baryons with pentaquarks
We examine several assignments of spin and parity for the pentaquark {theta}{sup +} state (J{sup P}=1/2{sup {+-}},3/2{sup {+-}}) in connection with known baryon resonances. Assuming that theExpand
Importance of Mixing for Exotic Baryons
Exotic antidecuplet baryons are predicted to be not only surprisingly light but also very narrow. First we explain how small decay width arises in the quark soliton model. Next, we study possibleExpand
