Gluonium and QCD in the J/ψ Region

  • Elliott D. Bloom

Abstract

The existence of an extensive spectrum of colorless, flavorless bound states of two or more gluons has been firmly predicted by quantum chromodynamics (QCD).1 These gluonic bound states have been given the rather unaesthetic name “glueballs.” It is expected that the lower lying “glueball” states are bound states of mostly 2 gluons and in analogy to quarkonium, this system is called gluonium. It also expected that gluonium states should be by far easier to observe than other “glueballs” due to their relatively lower masses which are predicted to lie in the range 1 to 2 GeV.
