Experimental Study of Exotic Hadrons at LHCb / Xu, Zehua
Among more than twenty tetraquark candidates that contain at least one $c\bar{c}$ pair, the electrically charged states, $e.g.$ $Z_c(3900)^+$ and $Z_c(4430)^+$, are smoking-gun evidence of tetraquark states, since their minimum-constituent-quark contents are $c\bar{c}u\bar{d}$ [...]
