Phenomenology of exotic hadrons - hybrid mesons and pentaquarks

Abstract:

This thesis is concerned with the properties of two classes of exotic hadron: hy- brid mesons, in which an excitation of the gluonic field causes distinction from the conventional mesons and can give rise to JPC quantum numbers not available to a qq̄ state; and pentaquarks, where the usual baryonic qqq structure is supplemented by a qq̄ pair, potentially giving the state an exotic flavour structure.

In the hybrid meson sector, we work within the flux-tube model and exten...
