The Masses of Heavy Pentaquarks in Non-Relativistic Bethe-Salpeter Quark Model
The exotic particles such as the pentaquarks are to strengthen understanding of important interactions and the principle of QCD in which pentaquarks contain two heavy- valence quarks. The structure
Tetraquarks, pentaquarks and dibaryons in the large N QCD
We study the multiquark hadrons in large N QCD under the ’t-Hooft limit, extending Witten’s picture of the baryons. We explore the decay widths of tetraquarks, pentaquarks and dibaryons. Based on the
XYZ: four-quark states?
The observation of many unexpected states decaying into heavy quarkonia has challenged the usual Q-Qbar interpretation. We will discuss the nature of some of the charmonium-like resonances recently
Constituent quark-model hidden-flavor pentaquarks
We study hidden-flavor pentaquarks, Q ¯ Qqqq , based on a constituent quark-model with a standard quark-quark interaction that reproduces the low-energy meson and baryon spectra. We make use of
Possible molecular pentaquark states with different spin and quark configurations
We investigate three possible pentaquark candidates, one of which contains a single charm quark and the other two contain triple charm quarks in their substructure. To this end we apply the QCD sum
Properties of the P c(4312) pentaquark and its bottom partner
We present an analysis of the newly observed pentaquark to shed light on its quantum numbers. To do that, the QCD sum rules approach is used. The measured mass of this particle is close to the
Narrow pentaquarks as diquark-diquark-antiquark systems
The diquark-diquark-antiquark model describes pentaquark states both in terms of quarks and hadrons. The latest LHCb data for pentaquarks with open charm emphasize the importance of hadron components
Baryon Masses and Strangeness Suppression in the Unquenched Quark Model
We discuss the latest applications of the Unquenched Quark Model (UQM) to the calculation of baryon observables. In particular, we focus on strangeness suppression effects in baryon-meson
Compact ssscc¯ pentaquark states predicted by a quark model


New look at scalar mesons.
Light scalar mesons are found to fit rather well a diquark-antidiquark description. The resulting nonet obeys mass formulas which respect, to a good extent, the Okubo-Zweig-Iizuka (OZI) rule. OZI
Multi-Quark Hadrons. 1. The Phenomenology of (2 Quark 2 anti-Quark) Mesons
The spectra and dominant decay couplings of Q2Q¯2 mesons are presented as calculated in the quark-bag model. Certain known 0+ mesons [e(700),S*,δ,κ] are assigned to the lightest cryptoexotic Q2Q¯2
Tetraquark mesons in large-N quantum chromodynamics.
It is argued that exotic mesons consisting of two quarks and two antiquarks are not ruled out in quantum chromodynamics with a large number N of colors, as generally thought. Tetraquarks of one class
Diquarks and exotic spectroscopy.
It is proposed that the recently discovered Theta(+) baryon is a bound state of four quarks and an antiquark, containing two highly correlated ud pairs, and it lies in an near-ideally mixed SU(3)(f) 10;(f) plus sign in circle 8(f).
Z (4430) and a new paradigm for spin interactions in tetraquarks
Following the recent confirmation of the Z+(4430) resonance with J^{PG}=1^{++}, we have re-examined the model of S- and P-wave tetraquarks. We propose a `type-II' diquark-antidiquark model which
Hadron Masses in a Gauge Theory
We explore the implications for hadron spectroscopy of the "standard" gauge model of weak, electromagnetic, and strong interactions. The model involves four types of fractionally charged quarks, each
Diquark-antidiquarks with hidden or open charm and the nature of X(3872)
Heavy-light diquarks can be the building blocks of a rich spectrum of states which can accommodate some of the newly observed charmoniumlike resonances not fitting a pure $c\overline{c}$ assignment.
Dynamical picture for the formation and decay of the exotic XYZ mesons.
We present a new dynamical picture that identifies the formation of the exotic c[over ¯]c-containing states XYZ with the confinement-induced hadronization of a rapidly separating pair of a compact
