Couplings of the pion Regge trajectory are discussed. We find that the kinematic factors prescribed by Wang must be supplemented by further kinematic terms. A simple physical interpretation is given for these additional terms. Our considerations lead to a model of pion trajectory couplings, which is in reasonable agreement with those experiments on vector- and tensor-meson production in which pion exchange is expected to dominate the forward peak.

The authors would like to thank Murray Gell-Mann for stimulating their interest in the problem of fitting data with Reggeized pion exchange. We have had many helpful discussion with Gell-Mann, Frank Henyey, David Horn, and Christoph Schmid on the determination of kinematic zero-free amplitudes.
