Pion-Nucleon Partial-Wave Analysis and the NN π Coupling Constant

  • Rob G. E. Timmermans
Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 9)


After some general remarks about partial-wave analysis, the method and first conclusions of a new analysis of πN scattering data across the Δ(1232) are summarized. In particular, a mini-review of the state-of-the-art with respect to the pion-nucleon coupling constant is given.
