Abstract

Results of resonance searches in the Ξ−π−, Ξ−π+, Ξ¯¯¯+π−, and Ξ¯¯¯+π+ invariant mass spectra in proton-proton collisions at s√=17.2  GeV are presented. Evidence is shown for the existence of a narrow Ξ−π− baryon resonance with mass of 1.862±0.002  GeV/c2 and width below the detector resolution of about 0.018  GeV/c2. The significance is estimated to be above 4.2σ. This state is a candidate for the hypothetical exotic Ξ−−3/2 baryon with S=−2, I=32, and a quark content of (dsdsu¯). At the same mass, a peak is observed in the Ξ−π+ spectrum which is a candidate for the Ξ03/2 member of this isospin quartet with a quark content of (dsusd¯). The corresponding antibaryon spectra also show enhancements at the same invariant mass.
