${{\mathit \Xi}{(1690)}}$ $I(J^P)$ = $1/2(?^{?})$

AUBERT 2008AK, in a study of ${{\mathit \Lambda}_{{c}}^{+}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit \Xi}^{-}}{{\mathit \pi}^{+}}{{\mathit K}^{+}}$ , finds some evidence that the ${{\mathit \Xi}{(1690)}}$ has $\mathit J{}^{P} = 1/2{}^{-}$. DIONISI 1978 sees a threshold enhancement in both the neutral and negatively charged ${{\mathit \Sigma}}{{\overline{\mathit K}}}$ mass spectra in ${{\mathit K}^{-}}$ ${{\mathit p}}$ $\rightarrow$ ( ${{\mathit \Sigma}}{{\overline{\mathit K}}}$) ${{\mathit K}}{{\mathit \pi}}$ at 4.2 ${\mathrm {GeV/}}\mathit c$. The data from the ${{\mathit \Sigma}}{{\overline{\mathit K}}}$ channels alone cannot distinguish between a resonance and a large scattering length. Weaker evidence at the same mass is seen in the corresponding ${{\mathit \Lambda}}{{\overline{\mathit K}}}$ channels, and a coupled-channel analysis yields results consistent with a new ${{\mathit \Xi}}$. BIAGI 1981 sees an enhancement at 1700 MeV in the diffractively produced ${{\mathit \Lambda}}{{\mathit K}^{-}}$ system. A peak is also observed in the ${{\mathit \Lambda}}{{\overline{\mathit K}}^{0}}$ mass spectrum at 1660 MeV that is consistent with a 1720 MeV resonance decaying to ${{\mathit \Sigma}^{0}}{{\overline{\mathit K}}^{0}}$ , with the ${{\mathit \gamma}}$ from the ${{\mathit \Sigma}^{0}}$ decay not detected. BIAGI 1987 provides further confirmation of this state in diffractive dissociation of ${{\mathit \Xi}^{-}}$ into ${{\mathit \Lambda}}{{\mathit K}^{-}}$ . The significance claimed is 6.7 standard deviations. ADAMOVICH 1998 sees a peak of $1400$ $\pm300$ events in the ${{\mathit \Xi}^{-}}{{\mathit \pi}^{+}}$ spectrum produced by 345 GeV/$\mathit c$ ${{\mathit \Sigma}^{-}}$-nucleus interactions.
