Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 7)


We review the status of partial-wave analyses performed by the Virginia Tech group. The pion-induced reactions, specifically πN → πN and πd → pp, are described in more detail. We discuss the effect of dispersion relation constraints in our πN analyses. The appearance of loops in the πdpp Argand diagram is also indicated.
