ππKK̄ Model of the ρ Meson
Abstract
The parameters of the ρ meson are calculated in the coupled ππKK̄ problem, using a simple version of the strip approximation. Experimental values are taken for the π, K, K^{*}, and φ masses, while all the coupling constants are assumed to be related through SU(3). The width of the ρ turns out to be 360 MeV, while the mass is 765 MeV. Possible corrections to the model are discussed.
