The creation of a mathematically rigorous multichannel relativistic quantum scattering theory that includes particle creation and annihilation has been an important goal in theoretical physics for many decades. Even in such a thoroughly worked-over field as pion-nucleon physics the goal has remained unrealized [1]. This basic problem is here reexamined from a perspective that is different in some important respects from the main traditional approaches. In particular, it is not a local quantum field theory [2] nor is it based on the Bakamjian-Thomas construction [3].
