IAS Physics Group Meeting

New Heavy Exotics

This group meeting will be presented in-person in the Bloomberg Lecture Hall at the IAS.

For contact-tracing purposes all attendees must register for this seminar: 

All in-person attendees must be fully vaccinated and masks are required in all indoor spaces (except while actively eating). Additionally, all off-campus attendees are required to upload proof of vaccination via the IAS CrowdPass App 

Abstract: On July 29 2021 the LHCb Collaboration announced the discovery of a new type of exotic hadron -- a doubly-charmed tetraquark $T_{cc}^+$, whose mass agrees precisely with a 2017 theoretical prediction.  I will discuss the recent related experimental and theoretical developments regarding new types of hadrons involving heavy quarks: tetraquark and pentaquark hadronic molecules, doubly heavy baryons, stable tetraquarks and others.
