The current status of dibaryon searches

Abstract

There appear to be very good reasons why dibaryons should exist, but disappointingly so far there appears to be no experiment in which clear-cut evidence for the existence of any strange or non-strange, narrow or broad dibaryon can be found. The few enhancements which have been found appear to be reasonably explained in terms of thresholds for production of well known baryons in reactions on quasi-free nucleons. However, since there are no simple, a priori reasons why dibaryons should not exist, we must continue to search. What this means is that we have to do even better experiments and look in wider domains of our experimental parameters. Some one of us will find a dibaryon yet. Just give us time (and a few other things)!

    It is sometimes argued that this intuitive reasoning is not correct for it would lead one to demand the existence of the helium molecule and its excited states just because excited states of the helium atom exist. This is not so. The more proper analogy would also point out that while the helium molecule (e2·e2) does not exist, lithium hydride does (e3·e). q3·q3 dibaryons may not exist fot the same reasons that the (e2·e2) helium molecule does not exist but the qn q6−n (n≠3) dibaryon could very well exist.Google Scholar

    Because of these permissible modes of decay into two baryons and one or more mesons, dibaryon resonances are often studied in the framework of meson-baryon dynamics. For example, the strangeness zero dibaryons have alternately been studied in the framework of πNN and ππNN dynamics. For typical calculations of this type, see T. Ueda, Phys. Lett. 798 (1978) 487.Google Scholar
