1  Width errors enlarged by us to 4${}\Gamma /\sqrt {\mathit N }$; see the note with the ${{\mathit K}^{*}{(892)}}$ mass.
2  Phase shift analysis. Systematic errors added corresponding to spread of different fits.
3  From fit of 3-parameter relativistic ${\mathit P}{\mathrm -wave}$ Breit-Wigner to total mass distribution. Includes BATON 1968 , MILLER 1967B, ALFF-STEINBERGER 1966 , HAGOPIAN 1966 , HAGOPIAN 1966B, JACOBS 1966B, JAMES 1966 , WEST 1966 , BLIEDEN 1965 and CARMONY 1964 .
4  S-matrix pole at a fixed ${{\mathit \rho}}$ meson mass of 775.49 MeV.
