Abstract

Abstract A general formal theory of resonance reactions is extended to the case in which continuous channels are present. The introduction of continuous channels does not alter the formal results and interpretation for the resonances which appear in two-particle → two-particle reactions. Breit-Wigner formulas are obtained for a type of resonance which occurs under certain conditions in reactions leading to three-body channels as a function of the momentum of one of the particles while the total energy is fixed.
