The $[{\bf 70, \ell^+}]$ multiplet, belonging to the $N$ = 2 band, is reanalyzed, with emphasis on hyperons and the SU(3) symmetry breaking operators entering the mass formula to first order. An important result is that the hierarchy of masses as a function of strangeness is correctly reproduced for all multiplets. Predictions for unknown excited hyperons to SU(6) $\times$ O(3) multiplets are made.

[more ▼]It is argued that several papers where SU(3) Clebsch-Gordan coefficients were calculated in order to describe properties of hadronic systems are, up to a phase convention, particular cases of analytic formulae derived by Hecht in 1965 in the context of nuclear physics. This is valid for irreducible representations with multiplicity one in the corresponding Clebsch-Gordan series. For multiplicity two, Hecht has proposed an alternative which can provide correct $1/N_c$ sub-leading orders in large $N_c$ studies.

[more ▼]The $S$-wave eigenstates of tetraquarks of type $s u \bar d \bar b$ with J$^{P}$ = 0$^{+}$, 1$^{+}$ and 2$^{+}$ are studied within a simple quark model with chromomagnetic interaction and effective quark masses extracted from meson and baryon spectra. It is tempting to see if this spectrum can accommodate the new narrow structure X(5568), observed by the D\O~~Collaboration, but not confirmed by the LHCb Collaboration. If it exists, such a tetraquark is a system with four different flavors and its study can improve our understanding of multiquark systems. The presently calculated mass of X(5568) agrees quite well with the experimental value of he D\O~~Collaboration. Predictions are also made for the spectrum of the charmed partner $s u \bar d \bar c$. However we are aware of the difficulty of extracting effective quark masses, from mesons and baryons, to be used in multiquark systems.

[more ▼]The mass spectra of the $[{\bf 56, 2^+}]$ and $[{\bf 70, \ell+}]$ multiplets, both belonging to the $N$ = 2 band, is reviewed in the $1/N_c$ expansion method. Previous studies, separately made for each multiplet, are presently updated to the 2014 Particle Data Group. The mass formula including corrections up to $\mathcal{O}(1/N_c)$ and first order in SU(3) flavor symmetry breaking, has the same independent operator basis in both cases. A special emphasis is made on the role of the SU(3) symmetry breaking operators $B_i$ $(i = 1,2,3)$. This can allow for multiplet assignment of $\Lambda$ and $\Sigma$ hyperons, which generally is quite difficult to make. Tentative assignments of hyperons with two- and one-star resonances are made to the $[{\bf 70, \ell+}]$ multiplet. Another important aim is to find out whether or not a common value of the coefficient $c_1$ of the dominant operator in the mass formula, can well fit the present data in both multiplets. A negative answer, which is here the case, implies distinct Regge trajectories for symmetric and mixed symmetric states.

[more ▼]We review the current status and present open challenges of large $N_c$ QCD baryon spectroscopy. After introducing the $1/N_c$ expansion method we first shortly revisit the latest achievements for the ground state properties. Next we discuss the applicability of this method to excited states, presenting two different approaches with their advantages and disadvantages. Selected results for the spectrum and strong and electromagnetic decays are described. We also present further developments for the applicability of the method to excited states, based on the qualitative compatibility between the quark excitation picture and the meson-nucleon scattering picture. We show that a quantitative comparison between results obtained from the mass formula of the $1/N_c$ expansion method and quark models brings convincing support to quark models and shortly discuss the implications of different large $N_c$ limits. We stress that the SU(6) spin-flavor structure of large $N_c$ baryon allows a convenient classification of highly excited resonances into SU(3) multiplets and predicts mass ranges for the missing partners.

[more ▼]The mixed symmetric positive and negative parity baryons are described in a similar way in the $1/N_c$ expansion method of QCD by using a procedure where the permutation symmetry is incorporated exactly. This allows to express the mass formula in terms of a small number of linearly independent operators. We show that the leading term follows a different Regge trajectory from that found for symmetric states, when plotted as a function of the band number $N$.

[more ▼]A simple procedure within the 1/N_c expansion method where all the N_c quarks are treated on the same footing has been found successful in describing mixed symmetric negative parity baryon states belonging to the [{\bf 70},\ell^-] multiplets of the N = 1 and 3 bands. Presently it is applied to mixed symmetric positive parity [{\bf 70},0^+] and [{\bf 70},2^+] multiplets of the N = 2 band. We search for the most dominant terms in the mass formula. The results are compared to those obtained in the procedure where the system is separated into a core and an excited quark. We find that both the spin and isospin operators of the entire system of N_c quarks play dominant roles in describing the data, like for negative parity states. As a by-product we present the contribution of the leading spin-isospin singlet term as a function of the band number, which hints at distinct Regge trajectories for the symmetric and mixed symmetric states.

[more ▼]We discuss the compatibility between the quark-shell picture and the meson-nucleon scattering picture in large $N_c$ QCD for mixed symmetric $\ell$ = 1 states previously analyzed by using a simple Hamiltonian including operators up to order $\mathcal{O}(N^0_c)$ defined in the standard ground state symmetric core + excited quark procedure. Here we introduce a Hamiltonian of order $\mathcal{O}(N^0_c)$ defined in a new approach where the separation of the system into two parts is not required. Three degenerate sets of states (towers) with the same quantum numbers as in the scattering picture and in the standard procedure are obtained. Thus the compatibility is equally achieved. The eigenvalues of the presently chosen Hamiltonian also have simple analytic expressions, depending linearly on the three dynamical coefficients entering the Hamiltonian. This reinforces the validity of the new approach which had already successfully described excited negative parity baryons in a large energy range.

[more ▼]We briefly describe the 1/Nc expansion method for studying baryon masses. Two approaches of the large Nc excited baryons have been proposed so far. The first one, based on the Hartree picture, treats the baryon as a ground state core and an excited quark and the second one, suggested recently, considers the baryon globally, without decoupling the system. The masses of excited states of mixed orbital symmetry of nonstrange and strange baryons belonging to the lowest [70, −] multiplet are calculated in the 1/Nc expansion to order 1/Nc with the new method which allows to considerably reduce the number of linearly independent operators entering the mass formula. The status of the resonance Λ(1405) is discussed.

This study represents an extension to SU(6) of our work on nonstrange baryons, the framework of which was SU(4). The conclusion regarding the role of the flavor operator, neglected in previous SU(6) studies, is reinforced. Namely, both the flavor and spin operators contribute dominantly to the flavor-spin breaking.

We give an explicit proof on the degeneracy of mass eigenvalues of a simple Hamiltonian including operators up to order $\mathcal{O}(N^0_c)$ \emph{i. e.} neglecting $1/N_c$ corrections in the quark-shell picture in the large $N_c$ limit. We obtain three degenerate multiplets formed of $\ell = 3$ states, as in the case of $\ell$ = 1 baryons. The compatibility between this picture and that of resonances in meson-nucleon scattering is discussed in the light of the present results.

[more ▼]We review a recently proposed approach to study the lowest negative parity baryons within the $1/N_c$ expansion. The method is based on the derivation of the matrix elements of SU(2N$_f$) generators for mixed symmetric $[N_c-1,1]$ flavor-spin states. Presently it is applied to the N = 1 band and a comparison is made with a former method based on the decoupling of the system into a symmetric core of $N_c-1$ quarks and an excited one. We prove that the decoupling is not necessary and moreover, it misses some important physical consequences.

[more ▼]Using group theory arguments we extend and complete our previous work by deriving all SU(6) exact wave functions associated with the spectrum of mixed symmetric baryon states [Nc-1,1] in the 1/Nc expansion. The extension to SU(6) enables us to study the mass spectra of both strange and nonstrange baryons, while previous work was restricted to nonstrange baryons described by SU(4). The wave functions are specially written in a form to allow a comparison with the approximate, customarily used wave functions, where the system is separated into a ground state core and an excited quark. We show that the matrix elements of the flavor operator calculated with the exact wave functions acquire the same asymptotic form at large Nc, irrespective of the spin-flavor multiplet contained in [Nc-1,1], while with the approximate wave function one cannot obtain a similar behavior. The isoscalar factors of the permutation group of Nc particles derived here can be used in any problem where a given fermion system is described by the partition [Nc-1,1], and one fermion has to be separated from the rest.

The simplicity of the method allows to better understand the role of various operators acting on spin and flavour degrees of freedom. The method is tested on two and three flavours. It is shown that the spin and flavour operators proportional to the quadratic invariants of SU$_S$(2) and SU$_F$(3) respectively are dominant in the mass formula.

[more ▼]In this exploratory study the spectrum of tetraquarks of type c \bar{c} s \bar{s} is calculated within a simple quark model with chromomagnetic interaction and effective quark masses extracted from meson and baryon spectra. It is tempting to see if this spectrum can accommodate the resonance Y(4140), observed by the CDF Collaboration, but not yet confirmed. The results seem to favor the JPC = 1++ sector where the coupling to the VV channel is nearly as small as that of X(3872), when described as a c \bar{c} q \bar{q} tetraquark. This suggests that Y(4140) could possibly be the strange partner of X(3872) in a tetraquark interpretation. However, the sector JPC = 0++ cannot entirely be excluded. This work questions the practice of extracting effective quark masses containing spin-independent contributions, from mesons and baryons, to be used in multiquark systems as well.
