|Abstract: In the recent years experiments have observed a plethora of unusual hadrons which do not conform to the usual paradigm of quark-antiquark mesons and three-quark baryons. They always contain both heavy and light quarks. I will discuss the very recent related experimental and theoretical developments regarding such “exotic” states — tetraquark and pentaquark hadronic molecules, doubly heavy baryons and most strikingly, a four quark state which is stable under strong interactions.
