An analysis of K+ -nucleon scattering
MetadataShow full item record
Two different techniques are employed to find preliminary energy-dependent isoscalar solutions for the scattering amplitudes. The first technique involves initializing to two different single-energy solutions of previous studies. The second technique consists of utilizing the energy-dependent parametrization to fit successively larger bins of data, starting from zero energy, until the entire energy range is covered.
Two solutions result from these investigations since one of the solutions from the first technique agrees with the solution from the second technique. The partial-wave amplitudes are discussed. Resonance pole positions and scattering lengths are extracted from each solution and compared with predictions from theories and other analyses. Also, observables from each solution are compared and experiments are suggested to further refine the determination of the K+N partial-wave amplitudes.
