A PRIMER ON PARTIAL WAVE ANALYSIS

2006 International Journal of Modern Physics A  
In the 90s of the last century high statistics experiments with fully equipped 4π detectors have lead to a better insight in the spectrum of hadrons. In particular the finding of crypto-exotic and J PC exotic states tremendously improved the experimental situation in meson spectroscopy. All this was possible only with sophisticated analysis methods like the decomposition of measured phase-space distribution into partial waves and to express the partial waves in terms of complicated dynamical
