It is shown that in a reaction in which a spin j particle is produced, the tensor parameters tq2j are sufficient to determine the reaction amplitudes in spin space. Choosing the initial particles in a pure (spin) state i and keeping the spin state of all other coproduced particles fixed, the subset of reaction amplitudes Amj(i) characterized by (i) is completely characterized by 2j axes and a complex scalar which may be determined (except for an overall phase and the discrete ambiguities) by measuring the tensor parameters tqk with k=2j and the differential cross section. Additional measurements to fix the relative phases between subsets with different (i) are also suggested. © 1987 The American Physical Society.
