The theta meson (
θ
)[1] is a hypothetical form of quarkonium (i.e. a flavourless meson) formed by a top quark (
t
) and top antiquark (
t
). As a P-odd and C-odd
t

t
state, it is analogous to the
ϕ
(

J/ψ
(

ϒ
(

) mesons. Due to the top quark's short lifetime, the theta meson is not expected to be observed in nature.
