Abstract:

Meson-baryon resonances are discussed within the framework of unitary symmetry based upon the Gell-Mann-Neeman baryon octet the eightfold way. It is argued that the low-lying J isobars realize a twenty-seven dimensional representation of SU3. Purely group-theoretic considerations directly following from unitary symmetry are compared with dynamical considerations suggested by the coupling constant combinations required by unitary symmetry and R-symmetry. Higher resonances are briefly discussed. Author
