Title:  Hadron spectroscopy and exotic states at LHCb —— Results and prospects

Speaker:  A. Prof. YU Jiesheng

Time:  PM 1:30-3:00,  Dec. 26th, 2017

Location:  Room 436,  Xing-jian Building

Abstract:  Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) is the underlying theory of strong interaction. In addition to the traditional quark model, QCD allows many other possible color singlets such as dibaryons, pentaquarks etc. With the experimental progress in the past decade, dozens of charmonium-like XYZ states and new hadrons have been reported. The nature of them are still need to study more. This talk will review some hadrons and exotic states observed in LHCb. LHCb is a single-arm forward spectrometer which is designed for heavy flavor physics. Run-II Data taking will be finished in the end of 2018. More results of exotic states and new hadrons are expected.
