Kaon photoproduction on the nucleon with constrained parameters

R. Nelson, Terry Mart

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The new experimental data of kaon photoproduction on the nucleon γp → K+Λ have been analyzed by means of a multipoles model. Different from the previous models, in this analysis the resonance decay widths are constrained to the values given by the Particle Data Group (PDG). The result indicates that constraining these parameters to the PDG values could dramatically change the conclusion of the important resonances in this reaction found in the previous studies.
