The group studies the elementary interaction of hadrons, as well as the interaction of hadrons with a nuclear medium using symmetries effective theories and perturbative and nonperturbative methods. Lattice QCD and NRCQM are applied to study charmed baryon spectroscopy of interest for the future european facility FAIR. 

The group works along several topics aiming at the microscopic description of hadronic systems in terms of quarks, or mesons and baryons, starting directly from QCD or equivalent effective theories. These studies allow also to address the changes of hadron properties in the nuclear medium using quantum many-body techniques. The many-body systems are studied in terms of effective potentials and sophisticated techniques are developed for their study. The aim is to study the nature of hadronic and many-body systems and make predictions of new states and their properties.

 At present the main research lines and topics are the followings:

  • Hadron Physics: Effective chiral Lagrangians and perturbative and non perturbative expansions. Hadron Spectroscopy: Dynamical generation of mesons and baryons from the meson meson or meson baryon interaction. Color and quark mass dependence of resonance masses and widths. Radiative and strong decays. Mesons and baryons with charm.Three body systems with mesons and baryons.
  • Interaction of particles with nuclei.
  • Quarks and LQCD: Spectroscopy and semi-leptonic decays of doubly heavy hadrons. Non-Relativistic Constituent Quark Models (NRCQM) and Heavy Quark Spin Symmetry (HQSS): charmonium spectrum and doubly charmed baryons.
