One of the main topics of interest in physics is the composition and structure of matter. Especially for hadrons, which are bound states of quarks and gluons such as the proton and neutron, the description is incomplete. Quantumchromodynamics (QCD), the theory of the strong interaction, is in accordance with most of the results from measurements. However, QCD as well as derived effective theories or lattice-QCD calculations are unable to fully explain the rich hadron spectrum.

In order to validate or invalidate theories, the precise measurement of the states is crucial. The mass and width of states can be measured by energy scans. With the method of partial wave analysis, one is able to extract additional information such as the spin and parity of the states. In this respect, the BESIII experiment at IHEP in Beijing and the future PANDA experiment at FAIR in Darmstadt, will contribute with valuable information.
