Due to the cluster reducibility of multiquark operators, a strong interplay exists in tetraquarks between the compact structures, resulting from the direct confining forces acting on quarks and
This document contains a review on the quark model, prepared for lectures at the Niccolo Cabeo School at Ferrara in May 2012. It includes some historical aspects, the spectral properties of the
A brief review is first presented of attempts to predict stable multiquark states within current models of hadron spectroscopy. Then a model combining flip–flop and connected Steiner trees is

In this limit of small coupling between different flux-tube topologies, it is shown that no bound exotic states exist, in contrast with predictions made with bag and other mean-field and two-body potential quark models.

The static three-quark ( 3Q) potential is studied in SU(3) lattice QCD with 12( 3)x24 and beta = 5.7 at the quenched level and a universal feature of the string tension, sigma(3Q) approximately s Sigma(Q&Qmacr;), and the OGE result for Coulomb coefficients, A(3 Q) approximately 1 / 2A(Q & Qmacr).
We show that the strong-coupling expansion of lattice gauge theories leads to static multiquark interactions which are in contrast to the additive-potential model and avoid the difficulties of this
