The phase shift values shown in Figs. 13.2–13.5 of the present book are from Table VI of this paper, as modified in Table XIII of the same paper. The phase shift notation is δI, where I and ℓ are the isotopic spin and the angular momentum, respectively.Google Scholar

    The f′(1522) resonance discussed in Sec. 13.7 is not in evidence in Fig. 13.8, since the f′ has a very small (1.4%) branching ratio into ππ [see A. J. Pawlicki et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 37, 971 (1976)].Google Scholar
