# Comments on the σ and κ

@inproceedings{Bugg2003CommentsOT, title={Comments on the $\sigma$ and $\kappa$}, author={David V. Bugg}, year={2003} }

The determination of σ and κ poles is discussed. Elastic scattering and production processes may be fitted simultaneously by including the Adler zero into the Breit‐Wigner width Γ(s). Data on ππ → ππ and Ke4 decays give a σ pole at (525 ± 40) − i(247 ± 25) MeV. A combined analysis with production data gives a better determination: (542 ± 25) − i(249 ± 25) MeV. The Fourier transform of the matrix element for σ → ππ reveals a compact interaction region with RMS radius ∼ 0.4 fm. The analysis of…

### The kappa in J/Ψ↦K+π

- Physics
- 2005

BES II data for J/Ψ↦K*(890)Kπ reveal a strong κ peak in the Kπ S-wave near threshold. Both magnitude and phase are determined in slices of Kπ mass by interferences with strong K0(1430), K1(1270) and…

Data for φ→γ(ηπ0) are analysed using the KK loop model and compared with parameters of a0(980) derived from Crystal Barrel data. The ηπ mass spectrum agrees closely and the absolute normalisation…

### Precise determination of the f0(600) and f0(980) pole parameters from a dispersive data analysis.

- PhysicsPhysical review letters
- 2011

The mass, width, and couplings of the two lightest scalar-isoscalar resonances are obtained and the analytic continuation to the complex plane is made in a model-independent way by means of once- and twice-subtracted dispersion relations for the partial waves.

### Decays of σ, κ, a0(980) and f0(980)

- Physics

Ratios of coupling constants for these decays are compared with qq̄ predictions and Jaffe’s q2q̄2 model. In both models, the predicted ratio g2(κ→Kπ)/g2(σ→ππ) is much too small. Also, for qq̄, the…
