Tetraquark Production in Hadronic Collisions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We develop a formalism to study the tetraquark production in hadronic collisions. We focus on double parton scattering and formulate a version of the color evaporation model for the production of the T4c tetraquark, a state composed by the quarks. We find that the production cross section grows rapidly with the collision energy and the T4c might be observable at LHC energies.
