Kaonic resonance; anti-Kaon


In this talk we show our recent results on the decay widths of φ(2170) to final states formed by an anti-Kaon and a Kaonic resonance, in particular, K(1460), K1(1270) and K1(1400), considering a molecular description for φ(2170). Branching fraction ratios are obtained and compared with the recent results found by the BESIII collaboration, finding compatible results.
