Abstract

If the X(3872) resonance is a shallow boundstate of a the charm mesons D0D̄*0 and D*00 it can be described by an effective theory of nonrelativistic D mesons coupled to nonrelativistic pions (X-EFT). In this talk, I give a brief overview of the X(3872), followed by a short review of X-EFT. I end my talk with results from calculations of the the next-to-leading-order correction to the partial decay width Γ[X→ D00π0], and the decay of X(3872) to P-wave quarkonia.
