Abstract

After carefully examining Feynman diagrams corresponding to the $\bar D \Sigma_c$ hadronic molecular state, we propose a possible binding mechanism induced by shared light quarks. We systematically study its corresponding light-quark-exchange interaction using the method of QCD sum rules, and the obtained results suggest that there can be the $\bar D \Sigma_c$ covalent molecule of $I=1/2$. Our QCD sum rule analyses further indicate a model-independent hypothesis: the light-quark-exchange interaction is attractive when the shared light quarks are totally antisymmetric so that obey the Pauli principle.
