2 Missing Resonances and Beyond Ken Livingston, University of Glasgow, Scotland Nucleon resonances and complete measurements Missing nucleon resonances Jefferson Lab and the N* programme at CLAS Hyperon results and status of N* The future The Jefferson Lab 12GeV upgrade Future facilities – EIC, ESS, ELI SCAPA

3 Clear indication of resonances Broad and overlapping Below energy regime of PQCD Constituent quark models SU(6) x O(3) Eg. Forsyth & Cutkosky, Koniuk & Isgur, Capstick & Roberts Missing resonances γp cross section: World Data Most data is from πN scattering and single π photoproduction. Cross sections are not enough – need angular distributions and polarization observables. Hyperons (nucleons with strange quark) are promising (    and      With D 13 Without D 13 Mart & Benhold, Phys. Rev. C (R) (1999) Constituent quark models predict many resonances, but several missing. Are they wrongly predicted, or difficult to find experimentally?

4 Polarization observables in pseudoscalar (0 - ) meson production 4 Complex amplitudes: 16 real polarization observables. Complete, model independent, measurement from 8 carefully chosen observables. I. S. Barker, A. Donnachie, J. K. Storrow, Nucl. Phys. B (1975). πN: high statistics KY recoil: self-analysing () Systematics of detector acceptance cancel out. Only need to know P lin, the degree of linear polarization.
