Programme on Exotic Hadrons

Bonn, Germany

April 23rd - May 4th, 2012

In the last years, the simple quark model picture of hadrons has been severely put into question by a cornucopia of experiments that show signals of so-called "exotic hadrons". At present, the nature of these states is not understood. The aim of this program is to sharpen the theoretical approaches to describe these states and pin down pertinent experimental signatures to differentiate between various options. Key issues of this program are:

  • Charmonia and exotica (decays, transitions, ...)
  • Theory of multiquark states
  • Theory of hadronic molecules
  • Hadron resonances in Lattice QCD

Participation upon invitation only!
