"The majority of excited hadrons are seen as resonances in the scattering of lighter stable hadrons like pions and kaons. Many resonances decay into multiple final states necessitating coupled-channel analyses, and recently it has become possible to obtain coupled-channel scattering amplitudes from lattice QCD. I will describe one of these calculations, beginning with the computation of the finite-volume spectra, that are used to constrain infinite-volume scattering t-matrices, from which the complex resonance poles can be extracted. Several recent applications of these methods will be described, including the first extraction of a strongly-coupled coupled-channel scattering amplitude from lattice QCD where an a0 resonance was found in pi-eta K-Kbar scattering.”
