Title: Multi-body Heavy Meson Decay

Abstract

Charm meson decay dynamics have been studied extensively over the last decade. Recently, B meson decay dynamics have also been analyzed. We describe the Dalitz-plot analysis technique which has been applied by many experiments to three-body D and B decays. We discuss results from the E791, FOCUS, CLEO, BABAR and BELLE experiments. These studies probe a variety of physics including charmless B-decay, doubly-Cabibbo suppressed decays, CP violation and T violation, the properties of established light mesons, charm spectroscopy and the properties of {pi}{pi}, K{pi} and KK S-wave states.
