Pole structure and compositeness

29 Nov 2017  ·  Oller J. A. ·

We present in this talk a series of new results on the nature of a bound state or resonance based on the calculation of the expectation values of the number operators of the free particles in the state of interest. In this way, a new universal criterion for the elementariness of a bound state emerges... In the case of large particle wavelengths compared to the range of their interaction, a new closed formula for the compositeness of a bound state in a two-particle continuum is obtained. The extension of these results to resonances with respect to the open channels can be given by making use in addition of suitable phase-factor transformations as also reviewed here. We end with a discussion on the $X(3872)$ as possible double- or triple-pole virtual state, which would be the first case in particle phenomenology. read more
