2 Hadron physics aims at understanding the properties of hadrons and their mutual interactions from QCD (the theory governing the dynamics of quarks, the constituents of hadrons). This is an ambitious goal and the field is compartmented into several subfields that basically study the phases and structures of QCD at their various levels of complexity.

3 Typical topics in hadron physics: Chiral Perturbation Theory Effective Field Theory Baryon Resonance Structure and Quark Models Exotic Hadrons Hadron Properties from Lattice QCD Spectroscopy of light and heavy quark hadrons Quarkonia Glueballs, hybrids and multiquarks Hadrons in matter Heavy ion collisions. EXPERIMENTS BNL, RHIC Jlab MiniBooNE, Miner a BaBar, CLEO KEK JPARC T2K BELLE, BES Da ne-Frascati MAMI-Mainz, ELSA-Bonn HADES COMPASS COSY-JÜLICHGSI-FAIR.

4 The spanish theory groups have been and are very active in contributing to the progress of Hadron physics. The groups are well integrated in the international circuit, participating in the big european projects (e.g. HadronPhysics) and providing support to the ongoing and future experiments, with an especial focus to the FAIR physics program. The experimental groups working on hadron physics projects are very limited. However, many spanish citizens are involved in experimental collaborations (MAINZ, GSI, CERN, …) and could be the seed for an eventual growing of the experimental groups. Activity integrated in

UCM contribution: development and extension of a realistic relativistic modeling of the reaction, incorporating it into the MC tool and making possible the data analysis ratio of G E /G M form factors in bound nucleons, Data from JLAB and MAMI, FSI are constrained by induced polarization measurement Several publications co-authored with the Hall A collaboration of JLAB, about polarization transfer in the 4 He((e,e 'p) 3 H reaction, PRL106, (2011) , PRL 105, (2010), PRL 91, (2003) Data suggests the pressence of mild medium modifications of the form factors, like the ones implied in QMC model

33 HADRON SPECTROSCOPY: Quark Models versus Dynamical models Dynamical Models: Mesons = Baryons = generated from unitary (non-perturbative) extensions of chiral perturbation theory in coupled channels Barcelona, Granada, Murcia, Valencia As a result, it is found that some of the observed resonances are generated dynamically through the multiple scattering of meson-meson (or baryon-meson) pairs in coupled channels. Their properties might be very different from the Quark Model predictions. Quark Models: Mesons = Baryons = Valencia, Salamanca

34 The constituent quark model

35 Many of the observed resonances fall within the quark model predictions A. Valcarce, H. Garcilazo, F. Fernández and P. González, Rept. Prog. Phys. 68, 965 (2005) The quark model also predicts other baryon properties. Form factors, decay widths of simple and doubly heavy hadrons, C. Albertus, E. Hernández, J. Nieves, Phys. Rev. D85 (2012) ; Phys. Lett. B704 (2011) 499, etc… But… some anomalies: Quark Models:
