Phenomenological Studies of the Low Energy Dynamics in the ppK+K System



In this article we review studies of the near threshold ppppK+K reaction done with the COSY-11 and ANKE detectors. We discuss phenomenological studies of the ppK+K dynamics, in particular the recent investigations on the K+K final state interaction are presented.
