A Unified Analysis of the B = 2 System
Results are presented for a unified analysis of the reactions pp → pp, πd → πd and πd → pp over the center-of-mass energy interval from pion threshold to approximately 2.4 GeV. These results for πd → pp and πd elastic scattering are superior to previous VPI analyses of these reactions. In particular, the overall phase in πd → pp has now been determined. Comparisons and predictions are made with previous (separate and unified) analyses of this two-baryon system. Several partial wave amplitudes show resonance-like behavior in these reactions.
