From IFL Science, Feb. 27, 2016: Scientists on the DZero experiment have found an incredible new particle that’s part of the exotic family of tetraquarks.
From Scientific American, Feb. 26, 2016: Evidence for a never-before-seen particle containing four types of quark has shown up in data from the Tevatron collider at Fermilab.
From Gizmodo, Feb. 25, 2016: Physicists from the DZero collaboration have announced the discovery of a new particle, believed to be part of an exotic family called “tetraquarks.”
The DZero experiment will present a special Wine and Cheese seminar, “Observation of a new resonance state in the Bs pi system” this Thursday, Feb. 25, at 4 p.m. in One West. The seminar will be video streamed at http://vms.fnal.gov/asset/livevideo and the slides will be posted at http://theory.fnal.gov/jetp/. Mark your calendar to attend!
Determining the precise details of how the strong nuclear force assembles quarks into hadrons is not always easy. Disponible en español Method A: 3 quarks chromodynamic glue Step 1. Glue the quarks together. Step 2. Voila! Method A will produce a baryon; most of your more massive hadrons are baryons. The type of baryon will be determined in part by the flavor of the quarks used and how the quarks are aligned. For example, if you have glued together one…
