Due to the finite kinetic energy in the intermediate NΔ state the (internal) energy available for mesonic decay is decreased and consequently the effective NΔ width is suppressed in NN scattering. The same can happen also in ΔΔ case. Also the NΔ angular momentum suppresses the width as well, while the effect of the initial NN angular momentum is more subtle. The state dependence affects e.g. pion production observables and can also be seen as the origin of T = 1 “dibaryons”.
