Charge/Theme of the session:

  1. Please see first the

    General charges for all experimental talks in WG4

  2. In addition, please consider for the experimental talks:

    • What are the present limitations in the Dalitz analysis ? How can we improve on these ?
  3. For the theoretical talks:

    • Understanding of the πK modes: How well can they be used to determine γ ? What is the role and are the uncertainties of the contribution from electroweak penguins ?
    • What can be learnt in addition from πK* and ρK/K* modes ?
