We study decay properties of the $P$-wave charmed baryons using the method of light-cone QCD sum rules, including the $S$-wave decays of the flavor $\mathbf{\bar 3}_F$ $P$-wave charmed baryons into ground-state charmed baryons accompanied by a pseudoscalar meson ($\pi$ or $K$) or a vector meson ($\rho$ or $K^*$), and the $S$-wave decays of the flavor $\mathbf{6}_F$ $P$-wave charmed baryons into ground-state charmed baryons accompanied by a pseudoscalar meson ($\pi$ or $K$). We study both two-body and three-body decays which are kinematically allowed. We find two mixing solutions from internal $\rho$- and $\lambda$-mode excitations, which can well describe both masses and decay properties of the $\Lambda_c(2595)$, $\Lambda_c(2625)$, $\Xi_c(2790)$ and $\Xi_c(2815)$.

We study the (anti)kaon nucleon interaction in the Skyrme model. The kaon field is introduced as a fluctuation around the rotating Skyrmion for the nucleon. As an extension of our previous work, we study scattering states and examine phase shifts in various kaon-nucleon channels. Read More

Mesonic and nucleon fluctuation effects are investigated in medium. We couple the nucleon field to the $2+1$ flavor meson model and investigate the finite temperature and density behavior of the system. Somewhat contrary to earlier expectations we find that the axial anomaly tends to strengthen at finite density. Read More

In our contribution we give a brief overview of two widely discussed quantum processes: electron-positron pairs production off a probe photon propagating through a polarized short-pulsed electromagnetic (e.m.) (e. Read More

We study the $D$-wave charmed baryons of $SU(3)$ flavor $\mathbf{\bar3}_F$ using the method of QCD sum rule in the framework of heavy quark effective theory (HQET). We find that the $\Lambda_c(2880)$, $\Xi_c(3055)$ and $\Xi_c(3080)$ can be well described by the $D$-wave $SU(3)$ $\mathbf{\bar 3}_F$ charmed baryon multiplets of $J^P=3/2^+$ and $5/2^+$, which contain two $\lambda$-mode orbital excitations, i.e. Read More

We investigate the $\eta'$ photoproduction off the nucleon with a particular interest in the effect of the final-state interaction (FSI) of the $\eta'$ meson and nucleon $(\eta'N)$ based on three-flavor linear sigma model. We find an enhancement in the cross section of the $\eta'$ photoproduction near the $\eta'N$-threshold energy owing to the $\eta'N$ FSI. With the $\eta'$ meson at forward angles, the energy dependence near the $\eta'N$ threshold is well reproduced with the $\eta'N$ FSI. Read More

We investigate the decays of the charmed baryons aiming at the systematic understanding of hadron internal structures based on the quark model by paying attention to heavy quark symmetry. We evaluate the decay widths from the one pion emission for the known excited states, \Lambda_c^*(2595), \Lambda_c^*(2625), \Lambda_c^*(2765), \Lambda_c^*(2880) and \Lambda_c^*(2940), as well as for the ground states \Sigma_c(2455) and \Sigma_c^*(2520). The decay properties of the lower excited charmed baryons are well explained, and several important predictions for higher excited baryons are given. Read More

The $\Xi$ baryons are expected to be naturally narrower as compared to their non-strange and strange counterparts since they have only one light quark and, thus, their decay involves producing either a light meson and doubly strange baryon or both meson and baryon with strangeness which involves, relatively, more energy. In fact, some $\Xi$'s have full widths of the order of even 10-20 MeV when, in principle, they have a large phase space to decay to some open channels. Such is the case of $\Xi (1690)$, for which the width has been found to be of the order of 10 MeV in the latest BABAR and BELLE data. Read More

We present a comparative study of the pion induced production of $K^0 \Lambda$ and $D^- \Lambda_c^+$ off the nucleon. A hybrid framework is utilized by combining an effective Lagrangian method with a Regge approach. We consider the $t$-channel process in a plannar diagram by vector-meson Reggeon exchanges and the $u$-channel one in a non-planar diagram by baryon Reggeon exchanges. Read More

Current studies on heavy hadrons in nuclear medium are reviewed with a summary of the basic theoretical concepts of QCD, namely chiral symmetry, heavy quark spin symmetry, and the effective Lagrangian approach. The nuclear matter is an interesting place to study the properties of heavy hadrons from many different points of view. We emphasize the importance of the following topics: (i) charm/bottom hadron-nucleon interaction, (ii) structure of charm/bottom nuclei, and (iii) QCD vacuum properties and hadron modifications in nuclear medium. Read More

In this study, we investigate the $J/\psi$ production induced by pion beams off the nucleon, particularly the heavy pentaquarks $P_c(4380)$ and $P_c(4450)$ in intermediate states, based on a hybridized Regge model. The process involving $\rho$ and $\pi$ meson exchange in the $t$ channel is considered as background, and the heavy pentaquark exchange is included in the $s$ channel. The coupling constants such as the $\rho NN$ and $\pi NN$ vertices are taken from the $NN$ potentials, whereas those for the $J/\psi\rho\pi$ and $J/\psi\pi\pi$ vertices are determined by using experimental data based on the branching ratios. Read More

We study kaon-nucleon systems in the Skyrme model in a method based on the bound state approach of Callan-Klebanov but with the kaon around the physical nucleon of the rotating hedgehog. This corresponds to the variation after projection, reversing the order of semiclassical quantization of $1/N_c$ expansion. The method, however, is considered to be suited to the study of weakly interacting kaon-nucleon systems including loosely $\bar{K}N$ bound states such as $\Lambda(1405)$. Read More

Thermal evolution of the axial anomaly is investigated in the system of the linear sigma model for $2+1$ flavors. We explore the functional form of the effective potential and the coefficient of the `t Hooft determinant term. It is found that the latter develops a non-trivial structure as a function of the chiral condensate and grows everywhere with respect to the temperature. Read More

In the past decade, exotic hadrons with charm and bottom flavors have been extensively studied both in experiments and in theories. In this review, we provide topical discussions by selecting $X,Y,Z$ particles, to which Belle has made important contributions. These are $X(3872)$, $Y(4260)$, $Z_c(4430)^+$, $Z_c(3900)^+$, $Z_{b}(10610)^+$ and $Z_{b}(10650)^+$. Read More

In this proceedings report, we discuss unique features of charmed, or in general heavy, baryons with one heavy quark. A well and long-term known phenomena, the distinction of the two modes of the rho and lambda type of a three-quark system is revisited. The difference of these modes may be tested in the production and decay reactions of the baryons which may be tested in the future experiments at J-PARC. Read More

This work provides an overview of our recent results in studying two most important and widely discussed quantum processes: electron-positron pairs production off a probe photon propagating through a polarized short-pulsed electromagnetic (e.g.\ laser) wave field or generalized Breit-Wheeler process, and a single a photon emission off an electron interacting with the laser pules, so-called non-linear Compton scattering. Read More

We analyze the impact of the carrier envelope phase on the differential cross sections of the Breit-Wheeler and the generalized Compton scattering in the interaction of a charged electron (positron) with an intensive ultra-short electromagnetic (laser) pulse. The differential cross sections as a function of the azimuthal angle of the outgoing electron have a clear bump structure, where the bump position coincides with the value of the carrier phase. This effect can be used for the carrier envelope phase determination. Read More

In this talk, we report the study of $\pi^- p \to K^{*0} \Lambda$ and $\pi^- p \to D^{*-} \Lambda_c^+$ reactions by using an effective Lagrangian method and a hybrid Regge model. The total and differential cross sections for the $K^{*0} \Lambda$ production are first calculated and then those for the $D^{*-} \Lambda_c^+$ one are estimated. The two models yield different results, each exhibiting specific features. Read More

We study the P-wave bottom baryons using the method of QCD sum rule and heavy quark effective theory. Our results suggest that Lambda_b(5912) and Lambda_b(5920) can be well described by the baryon doublet [3F_bar, 1, 1, rho], and they belong to the SU(3) 3F_bar multiplets of J(P)=1/2(-) and 3/2(-). Their SU(3) flavor partners, Xi_b(1/2-) and Xi_b(3/2-), have masses 6. Read More

Single- and double- heavy baryons are studied in the constituent quark model. The model Hamiltonian is chosen as a standard one with two exceptions : (1) The color-Coulomb term depend on quark masses, and (2) an antisymmetric $LS$ force is introduced. Model parameters are fixed by the strange baryon spectra, $\Lambda$ and $\Sigma$ baryons. Read More

We develop a method to determine accurately the binding energy of the X(3872) from lattice data for the DD* interaction. We show that, because of the small difference between the neutral and charged components of the X(3872), it is necessary to distinguish them in the energy levels of the lattice spectrum if one wishes to have a precise determination of the the binding energy of the X(3872). The analysis of the data requires the use of coupled channels. Read More

We study the strangeness and charm productions induced by the pion beam, i.e. the $\pi^-$p $\rightarrow$ $K^{*0}\Lambda$ and $\pi^-$p $\rightarrow$ $D^{*-}\Lambda_c^+$ reactions, based on two different theoretical frameworks: an effective Lagrangian method and a Regge approach. Read More

We study the P-wave charmed baryons using the method of QCD sum rule in the framework of heavy quark effective theory (HQET). We consider systematically all possible baryon currents with a derivative for internal rho- and lambda-mode excitations. We have found a good working window for the currents corresponding to the rho-mode excitations for Lambda_c(2595), Lambda_c(2625), Xi_c(2790) and Xi_c(2815) which complete two SU(3) 3F_bar multiplets of J(P)=1/2(-) and 3/2(-), while the currents corresponding to the lambda-mode excitations seem also consistent with the data. Read More

Compton scattering of short and ultra short (sub-cycle) laser pulses off mildly relativistic electrons is considered within a QED framework. The temporal shape of the pulse is essential for the differential cross section as a function of the energy of the scattered photon at fixed observation angle. The partly integrated cross section is sensitive to the non-linear dynamics resulting in a large enhancement of the cross section for short and, in particular, for ultra-short flat-top pulse envelopes which can reach several orders of magnitude, as compared with the case of a long pulse. Read More

The "compositeness" or "elementarity" is investigated for s-wave composite states dynamically generated by energy-dependent and independent interactions. The bare mass of the corresponding fictitious elementary particle in an equivalent Yukawa model is shown to be infinite, indicating that the wave function renormalization constant Z is equal to zero. The idea can be equally applied to both resonant and bound states. Read More

We study pion induced reactions for charmed baryons $B$, $\pi$ + N $\rightarrow$ $D^*$ + $B$. First we estimate charm production rates in comparison with strangeness production using a Regge model which is dominated by vector ($D^*$ or $K^*$ ) Reggeon exchange. Then we examine the production rates of various charmed baryons $B$ in a quark-diquark model. Read More

We discuss the properties of hadronic systems containing one heavy quark in the heavy quark limit. The heavy quark symmetry guarantees the mass degeneracy of the states with total spin and parity $(j-1/2)^{P}$ and $(j+1/2)^{P}$ with $j \geq 1/2$, because the heavy-quark spin is decoupled from the total spin $j$ of the light components called brown muck. We apply this idea to heavy multi-hadron systems, and formulate the general framework to analyze their properties. Read More

We reinvestigate $K^*\Lambda(1116)$ photoproduction off the nucleon target, based on an effective Lagrangian approach. We include higher nucleon resonances such as $N(2000)\, 5/2^+$, $N(2060)\,5/2^-$, $N(2120)\,3/2^-$, and $N(2190)\,7/2^-$, of which the data are taken from the 2012 edition of Review of Paritcle Physics, in addition to the $t$-channel diagrams ($K$, $K^*$, and $\kappa$), the $s$-channel nucleon, and $u$-channel hyperon($\Lambda$, $\Sigma$, and $\Sigma^*$) contributions. We find that the $N(2120)\,3/2^-$ and $N(2190)\,7/2^-$ resonances are essential in describing the new CLAS data for charged $K^*$ photoproduction. Read More

The interaction between pseudoscalar and/or vector mesons can be studied using hidden gauge Lagrangians. In this framework, the interaction between charmed mesons has been studied. Furthermore, doubly charmed states are also predicted. Read More

In the present work, we investigate subsequential production of three kaons and $\Omega^-$ baryon based on an effective Lagrangian approach. We only consider the intermediate states with the light mass baryon to suggest the minimum of the total cross section. Coupling constants for verteces of meson-octet baryons are fixed from the empirical data and/or quark models together with SU(3) symmetry considerations and these for meson-decouplet are predicted not only quark model but also Chiral-quark soliton model calculation. Read More

We study the internal structure of resonance states in a complex 2D matrix model. We show that the geometry with "exceptional points" in the complex-parameter space can be useful to discuss parameter dependence of the structures within real-parameter subspace. By applying the model to hadron physics, we consider the Nc-dependence of hadron structures from the geometry on the complex-Nc plane. Read More

In this talk we present an interpretation for the experimental data available on two different processes, namely, $J/\Psi \to \phi \pi^+ \pi^-$, $J/\Psi\to \gamma \omega \phi$, which seem to indicate existence of two new resonances with the same quantum numbers ($J^{\pi c}=0^{++}, I = 0$) and very similar mass (~1800 MeV) but with very different decay properties. However, our studies show that the peak structure found in the $\omega \phi$ invariant mass, in $J/\Psi \to \gamma \omega \phi$, is a manifestation of the well known $f_0(1710)$ while the cross section enhancement found in $J/\Psi \to \phi \pi^+ \pi^-$ is indeed a new $f_0$ resonance with mass near 1800 MeV. We present an explanation for the different decay properties of these two scalar resonances. Read More

We present in this talk a recent investigation on $\phi$ photoproduction, emphasizing the rescattering effects of the $K\Lambda^*$ channel near the threshold region. We discuss the results of the differential cross section and the angular distributions. Read More

In this talk, we report the theoretical studies of baryon resonances for the gamma p ---> K*0 Sigma+ and gamma p ---> K*+ Sigma0 reaction processes by making use of the effective Lagrangian method in the tree-level Born approximation. The numerical results for the total and differential cross sections are shown with the presently available data. It turns out that the contributions from the N* and Delta* resonances are almost negligible near the threshold energy. Read More

Bottomonium-like resonances Zb(10610) and Zb'(10650) are good candidates of hadronic molecules composed of BBbar* (or B*Bbar) and B*Bbar*, respectively. Considering Zb (Zb') as heavy meson molecules, we investigate the decays of Zb(')^+ -> Upsilon (nS) pi^+$ in terms of the heavy meson effective theory. We find that the intermediate B (B*) and Bbar (Bbar*) meson loops and the form factors play a significant role to reproduce the experimental values of the decay widths. Read More

We develop a method to determine accurately the binding energy of the X(3872) from lattice data for the $D \bar D^*$ interaction. We show that, because of the small difference between the neutral and charged components of the X(3872), it is necessary to differentiate them in the energy levels of the lattice spectrum if one wishes to have a precise determination of the the binding energy of the X(3872). The analysis of the data requires the use of coupled channels. Read More

We have recently studied coupled channel interactions of vector and pseudoscalar mesons with octet baryons having total strangeness null and spin-parity $1/2^-$. We, thus, considered $\pi N$, $\eta N$, $K \Lambda$, $K \Sigma$, $\rho N$, $\omega N$, $\phi N$, $K^* \Lambda$, and $K^*\Sigma$ with total isospin 1/2 and 3/2. The interactions between pseudoscalar mesons and baryons are obtained by using the Weinberg-Tomozawa theorem. Read More

We discuss the possible existence of exotic dibaryons with a heavy antiquark, being realized three-body systems, Dbar^(*)NN and B^(*)NN. These are genuinely exotic states with no quark-antiquark annihilation. We consider the heavy quark spin and chiral symmetries, and introduce the one pion exchange potential between a Dbar^(*) (B^(*)) meson and a nucleon N. Read More

Several observed states close to the $D\bar{D}^*$ and $D^*_{(s)}\bar{D}^*_{(s)}$ thresholds, as the X(3872) and some XYZ particles can be described in terms of a two-meson molecule. Furthermore, doubly charmed states are also predicted. These new states are near the $D^*D^*$ and $D^*D^*_s$ thresholds, % Therefore, if the previous XYZ are molecules, then, there should be doubly charmed mesons with $J^P=1^+$ around the $D^*D^*$ threshold. Read More

A study of nonstrange meson-baryon systems has been made with the idea of understanding the properties of the low-lying $1/2^-$ $N^*$ and $\Delta$ resonances. The coupled channels are built by considering the pseudoscalar and vector mesons together with the octet baryons. The formalism is based on obtaining the interactions from the lowest order chiral Lagrangian when dealing with pseudoscalar mesons and relying on the hidden local symmetry in case of the vector mesons. Read More

We analyze the mixing nature of the low-lying scalar resonance consisting of the pipi composite and the elementary particle within the sigma model. A method to disentangle the mixing is formulated in the scattering theory with the concept of the two-level problem. We investigate the composite and elementary components of the sigma meson by changing a mixing parameter. Read More

We study multi-hadron systems with a single heavy quark (charm or bottom) in the limit of heavy quark mass. The spin degeneracy of the states with quantum numbers $(j+1/2)^{P}$ and $(j-1/2)^{P}$ for $j \neq 0$, known in a normal hadron, can be generalized to multi-hadron systems. The spin degeneracy is the universal phenomena for any multi-hadron systems with a single heavy quark, irrespective of their internal structures, including compact multi-quarks, hadronic molecules and exotic nuclei. Read More

The generalized Breit-Wheeler process, i.e. the emission of $e^+e^-$ pairs off a probe photon propagating through a polarized short-pulsed electromagnetic (e. Read More

We study hadronic molecules formed by a heavy meson and a nucleon, DN and D*N (BbarN and Bbar*N) systems. Respecting the heavy quark symmetry and chiral symmetry, we consider the DN-D*N (BbarN-Bbar*N$) mixing induced by the one boson exchange potential including the tensor force. We find many bound and resonant states with J^P=1/2^\pm, 3/2^\pm, 5/2^\pm and 7/2^- in isospin singlet channels, while only a few resonant states with J^P=1/2^- in isospin triplet channels. Read More

We study phi photoproduction with various hadronic rescattering contributions included, in addition to the Pomeron and pseudoscalar meson-exchange diagrams. We find that the hadronic box diagrams can explain the recent experimental data in the vicinity of the threshold. In particular, the bump-like structure at the photon energy E_gamma \approx 2. Read More

We investigate the photoproduction of K*0Sigma+ and K*+Sigma0 off the proton target, employing the effective Lagrangian approach at the tree-level Born approximation. In addition to the (s, t, u)-channel Born diagrams, we take into account various baryon-resonance contributions such as F15(2000), D13(2080), G17(2190), D15(2200), F35(2000), G37(2200), F37(2390), and Sigma*(1385, 3/2+) in a fully covariant manner. We present the numerical results for the energy and angular dependences for the cross sections in comparison to available experimental data. Read More

We discuss decays and productions for the possible molecular states formed by bottom mesons B (B*) and anti-B (anti-B*). The twin resonances found by Belle, Zb(10610) and Zb(10650), are such candidates. The spin wave functions of the molecular states are rearranged into those of heavy and light spin degrees of freedom by using the re-coupling formulae of angular momentum. Read More

In this talk, we report theoretical studies on the K*0 Sigma+(1190) photoproduction in the tree-level Born approximation, employing the effective Lagrangian method. We present the energy and angular dependences of the cross sections. It turns out that the N* and Delta* resonance contributions are negligible in the vicinity of the threshold. Read More

We evaluate a hadronic molecule formed by a heavy meson and a nucleon respecting heavy quark symmetry. The tensor force of pion exchange potential plays a dominate role to produce an strong attraction in this system. Solving coupled channel Schr\"odinger equations for PN and P* N, we find many bound and resonant states with isospin I=0 while there are few resonances in I=1 state. Read More

We study heavy hadron spectroscopy near heavy meson thresholds. We employ heavy pseudoscalar meson P and heavy vector meson P* as effective degrees of freedom and consider meson exchange potentials between them. All possible composite states which can be constructed from the P and P* mesons are studied up to the total angular momentum J <= 2. Read More
