Topic 1: Spectroscopy of Baryons, Light- and Heavy-Quark Mesons Session


Mr Anton Poluektov (University of Warwick (GB))


Recent results in studies of exotic states at LHCb are presented in this talk. The results include observation of pentaquark states in Lambda_b decays, studies of B -> psi' K pi and B -> jpsi phi K channels with contributions of tetraquark candidates, search for X(5568) in Bs pi channel, and the most recent constraints on the quantum numbers of molecular candidate Lambda_c(2940) from Lambda_b -> D0 p pi analysis. Analysis techniques used and challenges faced in these studies are discussed.
