Qualitative Features of the Glueball Spectrum

  title={Qualitative Features of the Glueball Spectrum},
  author={Richard L. Jaffe and Kenneth Johnson and Zbigniew Michal Ryzak},
The low-energy meson spectrum is investigated. Quantum numbers of the lightest glueballs are obtained by studying low-dimension, gauge invariant, colorless operators. A general shell model of hadrons is formulated and its predictions are specified. A comparison and criticism of existing glueball models is included.
