Title: Coupled-channel model for K¯N scattering in the resonant region

Here, we present a unitary multichannel model for $$\bar{K}$$N scattering in the resonance region that fulfills unitarity. It has the correct analytical properties for the amplitudes once they are extended to the complex-$s$ plane and the partial waves have the right threshold behavior. In order to determine the parameters of the model, we have fitted single-energy partial waves up to J = 7/2 and up to 2.15 GeV of energy in the center-of-mass reference frame obtaining the poles of the Λ* and Σ* resonances, which are compared to previous analyses. Furthermore, we provide the most comprehensive picture of the S = –1 hyperon spectrum to date. Here, important differences are found between the available analyses making the gathering of further experimental information on $$\bar{K}$$N scattering mandatory to make progress in the assessment of the hyperon spectrum.
