5 Main directions of our research SU(3) classification of baryonsProperties of antidecuplet in ChQSM: two approaches- quantization of slow soliton rotation- calculation of light-cone wave functions, Fock decompositionPredictions for processes where pentaquarks are producedPhenomenological analysis of the data
6 SU(3) analysis of antidecuplet Guzey and Polyakov, hep-ph/hep-ph/Gell-Mann, Ne‘eman, 1960s:The hypothesis of approximate flavor SU(3) symmetry ofstrong interactions existence of definite SU(3) multipletsNon-exotic hadrons:mesonsbaryonsExotic hadrons:antidecuplet
7 Gell-Mann, Okubo, 1960s:SU(3) symmetry is broken by mass of strange quarkmass splitting inside multiplets:Gell-Mann—Okubo mass formulasoctetdecupletantidecupletGMO mass formulas work with a few % precision!
8 Samios, Goldberg, Meadows, 1974: Step 1:Assuming that SU(3) symmetry is broken only by non-equalmasses, but holds for coupling constants, SU(3) symmetrygives also a good description of strong decays. We performeda new analysis of all known baryons and suggested newSU(3) systematization of known baryons.Step 2:Apply methods of SU(3) symmetry to antidecuplet.Goal:Model-independent systematization of scarce experimentalinformation on antidecuplet.
11 What is known about the antidecuplet? The lightest member is with MeVThe heaviest member is with MeVThe and members are not establishedHowever, there is candidate with MeVCharacteristic properties:- weakly couples to state, narrow- significantly couples to state- photoproduction on protons is suppressedAlt, NA49, CERNArndt et al., 2004V. Kuznetsov, Graal, 2004A. Rathke, MVP 2003

15 Antidecuplet decays: mixing with octet mixing angleoctet couplingconstantsConclusion: A small mixing withnon-exotic octet helps to understandthe trend of the data. Range of mixingangles is in agreement with predictionsof ChQSM
16 SU(3) predictions for antidecuplet decays suppressedsizableonly due to mixinglarge branchingCan be looked forin existing data?

22 Light-cone baryon wave functions Advantages of light-cone formulation:The vacuum of the free and interacting theory are the sameThe concept of wave function is meaningful and any particle is a superposition of Fock statesThe vector and axial operators do not create or annihilate pairs11/25

31 Results and commentsA more accurate estimation of Q+ width by computing form factors at non-zero momentum transferWe impose energy conservation in IMF
32 Results and commentsMomentum conservation allows only part of quark configurations to decay into a nucleon and a kaonOne can then expect a reduction of the width
33 Results and commentsOne can see that the 5-quark component in nucleon has a non-negiligible impact on its physical observablesOne can then expect the same happening when considering the 7-quark component for the pentaquarkHere are all the possible diagrams

36 Analysis of production in reaction V. Guzey, PRC 69 (2004);hep-ph/Motivation:To understand the negativeCLAS results of searchin the reactionS. Niccolai, CLAS, hep-ex/
37 Main idea and method:Assume a particular reactionmechanism for productionandfor the background reaction
38 Conclusion:Cancellation betweennegative interferenceand positive signalcontributions wash outany signs ofCLAS data does not meanthat does not exist!Nice example how very small Theta signal can be enhanced byinterference with strong background !!! Play with it !!!
39 Conclusions and Outlook -We developed a new way to study properties ofbaryons through the LCWF computed in ChQSM- usual baryons are NOT 3-quark states- new systematic way to study various baryon propertiesChQSM naturally accomodates sub-MeV pentaquark width, checkedby two complimentary methodsGlobal SU(3) analysis of baryons allows to restrict considerably properties of possible antidecouplet baryons. This analysis is alsoimportant for usual baryons, any new N resonance should opena new SU(3) multiplet.It seems that null results on pentaquark search do not mean itsnon-existence
40 Conclusions and Outlook -We should not rush to the conclusion that pentaquarks aredead! Instead, we plan to suggest new ways to enhance aparentlysmall signal of pentaquark, e.g. through interferenceTo understand the nature of „anomaly“ in eta photoproductionon the neutron. I think that this should be one of central topicsof our SFB:- potential bright discovery, independently of anti-10 interpretation- good possibility for collaborations of various groups (e.g A2, A4)- if 5-quark, we expect good signal in 2 pi photoproduction ondeuteronThe pentaquark programme is still in the focus of several labs, furtherstudies of 5-quark properties and estimates of processes are urgentlyneeded to analyse new data and possibly reanalize old data.
