About this Research Topic

Manuscript Submission Deadline 21 May 2023

Hadron spectroscopy is an important tool to study the micro-structure of matter and quantum chromodynamics (QCD) theory. Since the discovery of X(3872) in 2003, more and more hadron states have been discovered by BaBar, Belle, BESIII, LHCb, etc. These new hadron states exhibit behaviors and properties that are different from those predicted by traditional quark models. Their emergence brings new challenges and opportunities for the study of hadron structures.

In recent decades, with the advancement of experiments, great progress has been made in the study of hadron spectra. However, the internal structure and properties of the relevant hadrons are still unclear, and the relevant physics of the QCD non-perturbative energy region remains to be clarified and resolved. The final solution to these problems requires the close cooperation of experiment and theory. The goal of this research topic is to report the latest progress in hadron spectroscopy, to promote the connection between experiment and theory, and to provide useful references and ideas for future research.

In this Research Topic, we plan to collect original research papers, brief research reports and review papers, related to the experimental and theoretical advances in hadron spectroscopy.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Production or formation mechanisms of the new hadron states;
- Inner structures of the conventional and exotic hadrons;
- Properties of the new hadron states such as their strong, radiative and weak decays.

Keywords: Exotic Hadron, Nuclear Structure, Quantum Chromodynamics, Non-perturbative physics, Strong interaction


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
