Title: The NN interaction in a constituent quark model: Baryonium states and protonium level shifts

Abstract

We derive a NN interaction from a constituent quark model constrained by the NN sector to investigate the possible baryonium resonant state X(1835) recently suggested as a possible interpretation of the near-threshold enhancement found in J/{psi}{yields}{gamma}pp by the BES Collaboration. The interaction does not show bound or quasibound states but a {sup 3}P{sub 0} resonance in the I=0 isospin channel. We analyze the shift of the antiprotonium hydrogen energy levels, finding that pp-nn mixing can explain the abnormally big value of the 2{sup 3}P{sub 0} energy shift.

  • Atomic and nuclear complex energy (Gamow) states of the p-barp system are calculated with the Graz potential. The Coulomb force is included exactly (numerically), separate channels and experimental masses are used for p-barp and n-barn, and absorption is included via a phenomenological annihilation channel. Significant model dependence of the n = 1 /sup 1/S/sub 0/ protonium level is found, as is a possible systematic difference among most calculations and recent experiments. Bound and resonant states of baryonium are found in a number of charge and isospin channels, some with widths as narrow as 16 MeV. Unphysical zero width states aremore » also found and analyzed.« less
  • On the example of the NN interaction in the constituent quark bag model we discuss the trajectories of the eigenvalues for energy-dependent potentials. We show that in this model the behavior of this eigenvalues is determined by the coefficient of the term in the potential which is linear in the energy. In turn, this coefficient is determined by the admixture of a nucleon component in the bag wave function. The results of the eigenvalue analysis are illustrated in simple examples of /sup 3/S/sub 1/ and /sup 1/S/sub 0/ potentials, which describe the scattering phases up to the energies T/sub L/<more » or =0.8 GeV.« less
  • New indications of the existence of near-threshold P-wave states of quasinuclear baryonium have been found from a theoretical analysis of the x-ray spectrum of protonium measured by the ASTERIX group at CERN.
  • A phenomenological Lagrangian describing the interactions of the scalar and pseudoscalar meson nonets is obtained on the basis of the effective four-quark interaction model. This Lagrangian corresponds to a generalized sigma model. The Lagrangian contains mass terms which violate chiral invariance and correspond to quark masses m/sub u/not =m/sub d/not =m/sub s/. It is shown that because of spontaneous breakdown of the chiral symmetry the current quark masses in the effective quark Lagrangian are replaced by the constituent quark masses in the phenomenological meson Lagrangian. The current and constituent quark masses are estimated and the decays eta..-->..3..pi.. and eta'..-->..3..pi.. aremore » studied.« less
  • We calculate the low-energy amplitudes qq..-->..qq and qq-bar..-->..qq-bar (where q = u, d, s) of the interaction of dressed quarks in the framework of the N/D dispersion method by means of an iterative bootstrap procedure with two types of bare point interaction: with the quantum numbers of a gluon and of a white isosinglet pseudoscalar meson. We determine the masses of the lowest mesons (J/sup P/ = 0/sup -/,1/sup -/, and 0/sup +/) and their quark content (the mixing angles). The transition amplitudes satisfy the Okubo-Zweig-Iitzuka rule. In the colored meson channel we obtain a bound state which is amore » constituent gluon with a mass M/sub g/ = 0.7 GeV. The amplitudes have virtual 3-bar/sub c/ diquark levels with J/sup P/ = 0/sup +/,1/sup +/, and 0/sup -/. The resulting interaction of the dressed quarks turns out to be effectively short-range.« less
