  • We show that the strong-coupling expansion of lattice gauge theories leads to static multiquark interactions which are in contrast to the additive-potential model and avoid the difficulties of this model.
  • We investigate 4-quark (qqqq) systems as well as multiquark states with a large number of quarks and antiquarks using the chromodielectric model. In the former type of systems the flux distribution and the corresponding energy of such systems for planar and nonplanar geometries are studied. From the comparison to the case of two independent qq-strings we deduce the interaction potential between two strings. We find an attraction between strings and a characteristic string flip if there are two degenerate string combinations between the four particles. The interaction shows no strong Van-der-Waals forces and the long range behavior of the potentialmore » is well described by a Yukawa potential, which might be confirmed in future lattice calculations. The multiquark states develop an inhomogeneous porous structure even for particle densities large compared to nuclear matter constituent quark densities. We present first results of the dependence of the system on the particle density pointing towards a percolation type of transition from a hadronic matter phase to a quark matter phase. The critical energy density is found at {epsilon}{sub c}=1.2 GeV/fm{sup 3}.« less
  • We present a study of correlations among conserved charges like baryon number, electric charge and strangeness in the framework of 2+1 flavor Polyakov loop extended Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model at vanishing chemical potentials, up to fourth order. Correlations up to second order have been measured in lattice QCD, which compares well with our estimates given the inherent difference in the pion masses in the two systems. Possible physical implications of these correlations and their importance in understanding the matter obtained in heavy-ion collisions are discussed. We also present a comparison of the results with the commonly used unbound effective potential in themore » quark sector of this model.« less
  • The mass formulas for finite lumps of strange quark matter with [ital u], [ital d], and [ital s] quarks and nonstrange quark matter consisting of [ital u] and [ital d] quarks are derived in a nonrelativistic potential model. The finite-size effects comprising the surface and curvature were consistently obtained, which shows a converging trend. It is found that there is a good possibility for the formation of metastable strangelets of large mass. The model predicts a low charge to mass ratio as the characteristic signature of strange matter in agreement with the relativistic studies. This study also yields an estimatemore » for the bag energy density [ital B] in terms of the constituent quark mass and the baryon number density.« less
  • The similarity of the charge form factors between /sup 3/He and /sup 3/H observed experimentally, and the central hole of /sup 3/He charge density are in conflict with traditional nuclear structure theory with meson exchange currents. We claim that these conflicts are strong signals for the existence of multiquark clusters in nuclei. The hybrid quark hadron model reproduces these experimental data quite well.
