Title: PentaQuark Mass and Structure

Abstract

The Quark Delocalization, Color Screening Model has successfully reproduced the binding energy and structure of 9- and 12-quark systems that are small nuclei, namely 3He and 4He, in a relativistic version. In a non-relativistic version it has successfully been applied to 6-quark systems to describe baryon-baryon potentials, phase shifts and cross sections. It is applied here to KN molecular, Jaffe-Wilczek, Karliner-Lipkin and tetrahedral structures proposed for the reported pentaquark state, {theta}+. In this model, we find that the excitation energy above KN threshold can be reproduced in some cases. The negative parity state is always found at a lower mass than the positive parity one. Concerns regarding additional physics effects which may obviate this result and a conjecture regarding two- vs. three-body final state production of the {theta}+ are also noted.
