Are there any searches for exotic quarks, like a color-neutral quark? lysdexia 06:50, 16 Oct 2004 (UTC)

I know that there are searches for a 4th generation quark. According to the standard model they shouldn't exist. --Exomnium


I think this article should be improved so as to be more accessible to those without a heavy physics background. scienceman 20:04, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

I agree. I have a beginning literacy (i.e. undergrad courses) in particle physics and I find this pretty dense. Your average reader will glance once at this, cry "aargh, math!" and run away.--Xilog 10:19, 17 April 2006 (UTC)


The section lattice predictions is highly misleading. Without going into detail I have two objections. The first is that the quenched results for the glueballs may have nothing to do with observed physical states as a strong mixing with other states is expected. My second objection concerns the lattice determination of hybrid mesons. In non-exotic channels hybrid interpolating fields will also couple to standard quark antiquark states. A thorough determination has to include both the hybrids and the regular states. As no reference is given so far the claims provided in this section should not be taken serious. As a lattice theorist I would volunteer to write a new section on this but wanted to first post this to have some time for discussion. --Tarsilia (talk) 18:16, 22 October 2009 (UTC)
