Physics Colloquium

"Exotic and conventional hadrons from lattice QCD"

Presented by Sasa Prelovsek, University of Ljubljana, Jefferson Lab

Tuesday, July 28, 2015, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Faced with the recent experimental discoveries of pentaquarks and tetraquarks, one would like to establish whether these states arise directly from the fundamental theory of strong interactions - QCD. I will present how the exotic and conventional hadrons are investigated with ab-initio lattice QCD simulations. The approach will be illustrated with recent lattice results on the charmonium-like states Zc and X(3872), conventional resonances, bound states and pentaquarks.
