Abstract

We review five recent analyses (two from Belle and three from BaBar) in the areas of quarkonia, glueballs, and heavy quark quantum chromodynamics, three of which are new analyses (published just this year). They are as follows: (1) An observation and branching fraction measurement of the decay \(\varUpsilon (4S) \rightarrow \eta '\varUpsilon (1S)\) by Belle [1]; (2) Measurement of the cross sections of \({e^{+}e^{-}}\rightarrow \eta \) + bottomonium measured near the \(\varUpsilon (5S)\), also by Belle [2]; (3) Measurement of several hadronic \({J/\psi }\) decays and branching fractions by BaBar [3]; (4) A search for glueball-like mesons in \(\varUpsilon (1S) \rightarrow \gamma \pi ^{+} \pi ^{-} \) and \(\varUpsilon (1S) \rightarrow \gamma K^+ K^- \) decays, also by BaBar [4]; and (5) A precision measurement of the mass difference between \(D^{*+}(2010)\) and \(D^{+}\) mesons, by BaBar [5].

    Possibly the present best example of a clearly non-pure-\(q\bar{q}\) neutral “quarkonium” state is the \(Y(4260)\), as discussed in, e.g., pp. 7–8 of the http://pdg.lbl.gov/2018/reviews/rpp2018-rev-non-qqbar-mesons.pdf review on Non-\(q\bar{q}\) Mesons by C. Amsler and C. Hanhart in M. Tanabashi et al. (Particle Data Group), Phys. Rev. D 98, 030001 (2018), and references therein
