Center for Theoretical and Computational Physics
The "XYZ" peaks observed in heavy quarkonium spectra appear near open inelastic channels. A possible explanation is that they are not new resonances but instead are generated by resonances in exchange channels. A new paper demonstrates that to test this hypothesis it is necessary to analyze the Dalitz plot distributions of the coupled channel system.

Cold Weather and Critters
If you encounter what may be a poisonous insect or other animal in a difficult location, the proper response is to leave the insect or animal alone and, if needed, contact Facilities Management and Logistics at x7400 for removal. Never try to kill or physically handle such critters. Jefferson Lab has properly trained contractors who, following the laws and regulations for animal removal, can properly handle the situation promptly.
