Search for missing baryon resonances via associated strangeness photoproduction


Differential cross-section and single polarization observables in the process γpK + Λ are investigated within a constituent-quark model and a dynamical coupled-channel formalism. The effects of two new nucleon resonances and of the K *(892)- and K1(1270)-exchanges are briefly presented.
