In the 90s of the last century high statistics experiments with fully
equipped 4π detectors have lead to a better insight in the spectrum of hadrons.
In particular the finding of crypto-exotic and JPC exotic states tremendously improved
the experimental situation in meson spectroscopy. All this was possible only
with sophisticated analysis methods like the decomposition of measured phase-space
distribution into partial waves and to express the partial waves in terms of complicated

aiming to provide a flexible and experiment independent framework for performing all kinds of amplitude analysis.
