Exotic pentaquarks out of heavy quarks


Two possible mechanisms for exotic pentaquarks discovered by LHCb are discussed. They correspond to different distances between heavy quarks. First scenario is deuteron-like, pentaquark is loosely bound state of \Sigma_c-hyperon and anti-D meson. Second one considers pentaquark as a hadroquarkonium, i.e. the bound state of charmonium and ordinary hadron. Advantages and disadvantages of both scenario are discussed as well as possibility to distinguish them experimentally
