Structure of the X(1835) baryonium

Abstract : The measurement by the BES collaboration of J/psi -> gamma p pbar decays indicates an enhancement at the p-pbar threshold. In another experiment BES finds a peak in the invariant mass of pi-mesons produced in the possibly related decay J/psi -> gamma pi+ pi- eta'. Using a semi-phenomenological potential model which describes all the N-Nbar scattering data, we show that the explanation of both effects may be given by a broad quasi-bound state in the spin and isospin singlet S wave. The structure of the observed peak is due to an interference of this quasi-bound state with a background amplitude and depends on the annihilation mechanism.
