Narrow exotic tetraquark mesons in large-Nc QCD

Narrow exotic tetraquark mesons in large-Nc QCD Discussing four-point Green functions of bilinear quark currents in large-Nc QCD, we formulate rigorous criteria for selecting diagrams appropriate for the analysis of potential tetraquark poles. We find that both flavor-exotic and cryptoexotic (i.e., flavor-nonexotic) tetraquarks, if such poles exist, have a width of order O(1/Nc2), so they are parametrically narrower compared to the ordinary q¯q mesons, which have a width of order O(1/Nc). Moreover, for flavor-exotic states, the consistency of the large-Nc behavior of “direct” and “recombination” Green functions requires two narrow flavor-exotic states, each coupling dominantly to one specific meson-meson channel. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review D American Physical Society (APS)
