    This result is proved in ref. (1)V. De Alfaro, S. Fubini, G. Furlan andC. Rossetti: preprint, Torino (Dec. 1966). in the case of spin-flip pion-nucleon scattering without charge exchange. In the case of charge exchange the proof fails; however the saturation in terms of a finite number of resonances, if even possible, appears to give a physically unacceptable solution. This point is commented further in Sect. 2 on a specific example.Google Scholar

    seee.g. V. Barger: Talk presented at the Symposium on Regge Poles, Argonne National Laboratory (1966). Nevertheless it is worth noticing that the tail of the resonant amplitude does not decrease fast enough to fit the high-energy data.Google Scholar

    We negleet the ϕ contribution according to the maximal ω-ϕ mixing and to the experimental evidence for ϕ+>ρπ. We also neglect other resonances, like the possible partners of B(1210), whose data are not available. On the other hand these contributions would simply add to the 1+ terms without affecting our conclusions.Google Scholar

    Mandelstam andWang (Phys. Rev., to be published) have shown that β does not vanish at the nonsense wrong signature point, if the third spectral function is nonzero. However we assume, as these authors do, that the presence of the dips in the cross-sections is enough to make one believe that the β is indeed small.Google Scholar

    We are not willing to useSU 3 to relate pion to kaon coupling constants as we know that the symmetry is badly broken there. For example from the experimental rate of K*→Kπ we getg K*Kπ2/4π≃0.84, whileSU 3 givesg K*Kπ2/4π=1/4g ρππ2/4π≃0.68.Google Scholar

    Due to the numerical values of the masses, the above condition is almost equivalent tog L2−(m 2/m 12)g T2=0, predicting equal rates for longitudinal and transverse polarization of the ρ emitted in the A1 decay. This is in disagreement with the prediction ofg T=0 given byF. J. Gilman andH. Harari:Phys. Rev. Lett.,18, 1150 (1967), and also with that ofP. H. Framiton andJ. C. Taylor:Nuovo Cimento,49 A, 152 (1967) (in their notations we findC≃0 instead ofC≃10). All the above authors neglect the high-energy Regge contribution neart=0.ADSCrossRefGoogle Scholar
