Light hadrons are relativistic, strongly bound states with large gluon and sea quark distributions. Interestingly, hadrons also have properties akin to non-relativistic atoms, despite confinement and chiral symmetry breaking. Hadron quantum numbers appear to be determined by the valence quarks only. The quark model is quite successful, especially for quarkonia. The OZI rule and duality provide...

We discuss central exclusive diffractive production of light mesons in the reactions $pp \to pp \pi^{+} \pi^{-}$ and $pp \to pp K^{+} K^{-}$ at high energies. The calculation is based on a tensor pomeron model [1] and the amplitudes for the processes are formulated in an effective field-theoretic approach. We include a purely diffractive dipion continuum, the scalar and tensor resonances...

Parameterizing the two-body scattering amplitude by an isobar in each partial wave, we are able to express the three-body scattering amplitude in terms of the isobar propagator and isobar-spectator scattering amplitude in terms of Bethe-Salpeter equation. Analytic properties of all building blocks are determined exactly, imposing three-body unitarity. Subsequently dispersion relations are used...

Although color neutrality of the QCD spectrum is the historical definition of confinement, we know that a color neutral particle spectrum is also a feature of gauge-Higgs theories in the Higgs regime, and this means that such theories are also “confining,” at least by the historical definition. In this talk I will suggest that a confinement property stronger than color neutrality, which...

A fundamental question in hadron and nuclear physics is how the
mass scale for protons and other hadrons emerges from QCD, even in
the limit of zero quark mass. I will discuss a new approach to the
origin of the QCD mass scale and color confinement based on "lightfront
holography", a formalism which relates the bound-state
amplitudes in the fifth dimension of AdS space to the...

I will present results for light and strange baryons in the Dyson-Schwinger/Bethe-Salpeter approach. Their ground-state properties obtained from three-quark and quark-diquark calculations agree well, and with a few exceptions also the excited-state spectra can be well reproduced and interpreted from their underlying diquark structure. The formalism provides a path towards addressing multiquark...

Recently a new formal tool, based on both the Nakanishi integral representation of the Bethe-Salpeter amplitude and the so called light-front projection, has been adopted for obtaining actual solutions of the Bethe-Salpeter equation. A wide investigation of both spectra and light-cone momentum distributions have been carried on for bound systems with and without spin degrees of freedom, in...

The unambiguous establishment of a gluonic spectroscopy (glueballs and quark-gluon hybrids) will change the way we think the matter is constructed: gluons participate at the same level than quarks in building it. This feature is unique in quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and can be traced back to the self-interaction capacity of gluons. It is difficult to single out which states of the hadronic...

Ioffe-time distributions, which are functions of the Ioffe-time ν, are the Fourier transforms of parton distribution functions with respect to the momentum fraction variable x. These distributions can be obtained from appropriate equal time, quark bilinear hadronic matrix elements which can be calculated from first principles via lattice QCD methods.

Since the discovery of the D_{s0}^*(2317) and the D_{s1}(2460) in 2003, there have been 3 puzzles in the spectroscopy of positive-parity charm mesons: (1) why are the D_{s0}^*(2317) and D_{s1}(2460) masses much lower than the quark model predictions for the lowest positive parity charm mesons? (2) why is the mass difference between the D_{s0}^*(2317) and the D_{s1}(2460) is equal to that...

Inspired by the recent success of the numerical approach to the conformal bootstrap, we revisit the S-matrix bootstrap program.

The functional renormalization group is a nonperturbative semi-analytic tool for continuum computations in quantum field theory and high energy theory, and I will present some illustrative examples of its modern applications.

One main obstacle for any BSM scenario solving the hierarchy problem is its potentially large contributions to electric dipole moments. An elegant way to avoid this problem is to have the light SM fermions couple to the BSM sector only through bilinears. This possibility can be neatly implemented in composite Higgs models by dynamically generating the fermion Yukawa couplings at different...

If one examines the rules for constructing hadrons as suggested by the QCD Lagrangian, there is no obvious reason why nature should be limited to just quark-antiquark mesons and three-quark baryons. In the last decade, numerous new experimental results, primarily for hadrons containing charm quarks, suggest that the hadron spectrum may in fact contain more complex constructions of quarks and...

We have conducted studies on the production mechanism of various channels, which are being analyzed at Jefferson Lab. These include pseudoscalar and vector meson production. Using the constraint of analyticity of the amplitudes, we are able to propagate experimental information from one energy regime to the other. This approach relates properties of the baryon spectrum to the dynamics of meson...

COMPASS is a multi-purpose fixed-target experiment at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron aimed at studying the structure and spectrum of hadrons. One of the main goals of the experiment is the study of the light-meson spectrum. In diffractive reactions with a 190 GeV/c negative pion beam, a rich spectrum of isovector mesons is produced. The resonances decay typically into multi-body final...

Usually the simulation of scattering processes in lattice QCD is carried out at unphysical high values of the quark masses [1]. Hence, a method to extrapolate data obtained in lattice calculations to physical masses is needed to allow for comparison between theory and experiment. To obtain a sound extrapolation, dispersion relations and chiral perturbation theory can be invoked. While a simple...

The non-perturbative nature of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) has historically left a gap in our understanding of the connection between the fundamental theory of the strong interactions and the rich structure of experimentally observed phenomena. For the simplest properties of stable hadrons, this can now be circumvented using lattice QCD. In this talk I discuss a path that will allow us to...

A standard quark-antiquark state gets dressed by meson-meson clouds
corresponding to its decay product and its pole moves down in the complex
plane. If some conditions are met (coupling constant strong enough nearby
energy threshold(s)), additional. so-called companion poles may emerge, which
correspond to a type of dynamically generated states. For instance, the light
scalar states...

The expectation value of the quantum energy-momentum tensor (EMT) for an unpolarized proton target in the Breit frame can be matched with an anisotropic perfect fluid EMT. This matching offers the possibility of interpreting the EMT form factors in terms of the internal energy and transverse/radial pressure inside an unpolarized proton target.
The generalization of this result to a more...

The calculation of hadronic observables using a combination of Dyson-Schwinger and Bethe-Salpeter equations has developed dramatically in recent years. The method aims at the calculation of hadronic properties

The dynamics leading to the formation of coloured composite massless excitations in Yang-Mills theory is interlocked with the one leading to the generation of a gluon mass scale in the infrared.

I'll describe lattice spectroscopy of SU(N) gauge theories with N in the range 2-7, with a small number
of fermion degrees of freedom. These are systems which are most similar to QCD: they are confining
and chirally broken. The simple states are s-wave mesons and baryons.
Specific systems I have studied are SU(N) gauge theories, quenched or with Nf=2 fundamental quarks
and SU(4) with two...
