Abstract

The pentaquark is described as a doublet of states: P 0 = | suud〉 and P - = | sddu〉. The H dibaryon is described as: H = | uuddss). Both were predicted to be stable against strong decay or slightly unbound resonances. The considerations leading to these expectations are reviewed. The main properties of these particles: masses, decay modes, lifetimes and hadroproduction cross sections are discussed. Experimental efforts to search for these particles are reviewed.
