Can four-quark states be easily detected in baryon-antibaryon scattering ?

Abstract

We attempt to explain the experimental sparsity of diquonia candidates given the theoretical abundance of such states. We do this by investigating the lowest-order contributions of such states as intermediates in pp̅ scattering into exclusive baryon-antibaryon final states. We find that the contributions depend on the partial widths for the meson-meson decays of the diquonia, and that resonant effects can be easily made to disappear. We conclude that if the meson-meson widths of diquonia are larger than about 50 MeV, most of these states will be extremely difficult to observe in pp̅ scattering, for instance. We note that diquonia may offer a convenient means of describing some aspects of the dynamics of baryon-antibaryon scattering.
