Abstract.We perform a glueball-relevant study on isoscalars based on anisotropic Nf = 2 lattice QCD gauge configurations. In the scalar channel, we identify the ground state obtained through gluonic operators to be a single-particle state through its dispersion relation. When qq operator is included, we find the mass of this state does not change, and the qq operator couples very weakly to this state. So this state is most likely a glueball state. For pseudoscalars, along with the exiting lattice results, our study implies that both the conventional qq state η2 (or η' in flavor SU(3)) and a heavier glueball-like state with a mass of roughly 2.6 GeV exist in the spectrum of lattice QCD with dynamical quarks.
