Abstract

Gluebal1s’-colorless, flavorless composites of two or more gluons-should exist according to the basic tenets of quantum chromodynamics (QCD). From the preceding discussions of Hitlin,’ C h ~ n ga,n~d Lindenbaum: it is clear that the study of glueball spectroscopy is intertwined with the study of meson spectroscopy. In this brief review, I shall try to correlate the experimental results presented by the aforementioned authors with our current understanding of QCD. A major problem with attempting to offer any help is that we have no analogue of the quarkonia phenomenological potentials (see Cornell,s Richardson,6 and Kaus’) to predict glueball spectra. Lattice Gauge Theory calculations are just approaching a postnatal stage.
