Title: Problems at the interface between heavy flavor physics, QCD and hadron spectroscopy.

Abstract

The following subjects are discussed in this report: (1) Pentaquark--why it is important and how new technologies (vertex detectors) suggest drastically different approaches form the search used by Ashery et al.; (2) problems in B decays with implications for heavy quark decays to excited light quark states like the Al; (3) problems in B and D decays to final states including {eta} and {eta}{prime} indicating that standard quark mixing might not hold; (4) possible contributions of hybrid quarkonium states to B decays; (5) heavy flavor decays to {omega}{tau} which disagree with conventional expectations; and (6) possible new spin effects in {Lambda}{sub b} decay and the effect on the lifetime difference between the {Lambda}{sub b} and B mesons.
