Abstract

Abstract A comparative survey of established meson states with the predictions of a q q (quarkonium) model by Godfrey and Isgur shoes that most meson states are well described, from pion to Y(6S). However, a number of states in the light-quark isoscalar sector are not predicted at all in their model, pointing to a need for glueballs, hybrids and multi-quark states to fully account for recently reported meson states.
