The Social Life of Heavy Quarks
Speaker:Marek Karliner
Affiliation:Tel Aviv University
Time:14:30 - 15:30
Location:Lidow Rosen Auditorium (323)

I will discuss recent developments regarding new types of hadrons involving heavy quarks: hadronic molecules, doubly heavy baryons, stable tetraquarks and others. I will also explain how the discovery of the doubly heavy baryon leads to quark-level analogue of nuclear fusion, with energy release per reaction an order of magnitude greater than in ordinary fusion.
