A narrow pentaquark state, Pc(4312)+, decaying to J/psi p, is discovered with a statistical significance of 7.3sigma in a data sample of Λb0 -> J/psi p K- decays, which is an order of magnitude larger than that previously analyzed by the LHCb Collaboration. The Pc(4450)+ pentaquark structure formerly reported by LHCb is confirmed and observed to consist of two narrow overlapping peaks, Pc(4440)+ and Pc(4457)+, where the statistical significance of this two-peak interpretation is 5.4sigma. The proximity of the Σc+ Dbar0 and Σc+ D*bar0 thresholds to the observed narrow peaks suggests that they play an important role in the dynamics of these states.

Abstract

A narrow pentaquark state, Pc(4312)+, decaying to J/psi p, is discovered with a statistical significance of 7.3sigma in a data sample of Λb0 -> J/psi p K- decays, which is an order of magnitude larger than that previously analyzed by the LHCb Collaboration. The Pc(4450)+ pentaquark structure formerly reported by LHCb is confirmed and observed to consist of two narrow overlapping peaks, Pc(4440)+ and Pc(4457)+, where the statistical significance of this two-peak interpretation is 5.4sigma. The proximity of the Σc+ Dbar0 and Σc+ D*bar0 thresholds to the observed narrow peaks suggests that they play an important role in the dynamics of these states.
