Unifying the Diquark and Molecular Models for Exotic Hadrons Unifying the Diquark and Molecular Models for Exotic Hadrons Unifying the Diquark and Molecular Models for Exotic Hadrons The PI, in his capacity as Topical Group Convener for Hadronic Physics (RF7) in the Snowmass Community Planning Exercise, requests funds to support travel to two Snowmass meetings: 16-19 May, 2022 at University of Cincinnati for the final Rare and Precision Physics (RF) Frontier meeting 17-27 July, 2022 at University of Washington, Seattle for the Snowmass Community Summer Study (all frontiers) The purpose of the first meeting is to meet with fellow RF Conveners and other colleagues to make presentations on behalf of each Topical Group within the Rare and Precision Physics Frontier, and to finalize input for the development of the Topical Group RF7 summary document that will be used subsequently in the development of the full RF report. The second meeting brings together all of the Snowmass frontiers for presentations and discussions designed to aid in the organization of the final Snowmass Report. The Snowmass Report is the primary document used by the P5 (Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel) for establishing priorities in high-energy physics for the Federal funding agencies. The PI is currently funded through the NSF Nuclear Theory program rather than Elementary Particle Theory program, however, his specialty of hadronic physics spans the priorities of both offices. In particular, in his capacity as a Convener, he has enlisted subtopic conveners who are experimentalists affiliated with Jefferson Lab and the Electron-Ion Collider, as well as theorists in the JPAC (Joint Physics Analysis Center) Collaboration for scattering amplitude analysis. At the other extreme, he works with researchers from the LHCb, Belle II, BESIII, and other experimental collaborations. In this role, he acts as a liaison between the two communities, thus serving an important outreach function for NSF Nuclear Theory. The PIs work in the current and previous grants focuses on the study of exotic hadrons, the fastest growing subfield within modern hadron spectroscopy. It is due to this expertise that he was selected to serve as a Snowmass Topical Group Convener. This experience has also greatly expanded his visibility within the field, as well as his perspective on its outstanding scientific issues.
