Baryons from Quarks in the $1/N$ Expansion

Abstract:

We present a diagrammatic analysis of baryons in the $1/N$ expansion, where $N$ is the number of QCD colors. We use this method to show that there are an infinite number of degenerate baryon states in the large-$N$ limit. We also show that forward matrix elements of quark bilinear operators satisfy the static quark-model relations in this limit, and enumerate the corrections to these relations to all orders in $1/N$. These results hold for any number of light quark flavors, and the methods us...
