1  From this result and $\alpha _{{{\mathit \Xi}}}$, HUANG 2004 gets $\beta _{{{\mathit \Xi}}}$ = $-0.037$ $\pm0.011$ $\pm0.010$ and $\gamma _{{{\mathit \Xi}}}$ = $0.888$ $\pm0.0004$ $\pm0.006$. And the strong p$-$s phase difference for ${{\mathit \Lambda}}{{\mathit \pi}^{-}}$ scattering is ($4.6$ $\pm1.4$ $\pm1.2)^\circ{}$.
2  From this result and $\alpha _{{{\mathit \Xi}}}$, CHAKRAVORTY 2003 obtains $\beta _{{{\mathit \Xi}}}$ = $-0.025$ $\pm0.042$ $\pm0.006$ and $\gamma _{{{\mathit \Xi}}}$ = $0.889$ $\pm0.001$ $\pm0.007$. And the strong p$-$s phase difference for ${{\mathit \Lambda}}{{\mathit \pi}^{-}}$ scattering is ($3.17$ $\pm5.28$ $\pm0.73)^\circ{}$.
3  BENSINGER 1985 used $\alpha _{\Lambda }$ = $0.642$ $\pm0.013$.
4  The errors have been multiplied by 1.2 due to approximations used for the ${{\mathit \Xi}}$ polarization; see DAUBER 1969 for a discussion.
