The BNL-AGS Experiment 896

  • W. J. Llope

Abstract

The Ho is the simplest and most plausible of the exotic multi-quark states originally derived from the MIT bag model.[l] It is a six-quark state with the quark composition of uuddss, baryon number B=2, spin-parity J π=O+, and strangeness S=−2. It is not a bound pair of distinct Λ particles (uds+uds), and it differs from both the deuteron (uud+udd) and the conjectured multi-hyperons in that all six quarks are contained in a single bag. This particle has not yet been observed unambiguously.
