  • Event time: 4:00pm until 5:00pm

Event details

The discovery of the X(3872) exotic charmonium has opened the doors to a new area of research in the sector of heavy quark spectroscopy. In the last decade, several non-conventional c-cbar states have been discovered and studied, and most of them are candidates for multiquark states. An overview of the exotic spectroscopy of charm hadrons will be presented, showing why these states are not compatible with being identified as excited charmonia, along with some theoretical models that might describe multiquark bound states and the latest measurements from the LHCb experiment.
