As we will later see, a crucial role in model building is played by symmetries. You
are already familiar with symmetries and with some of their consequences. For example,
Nature seems to have the symmetry of

Two-Body Phase Space
The two-body phase is the basis of computing higher body phase spaces.
We compute it in the rest frame of the two-body system, P = p1 + p2 =
( s, 0, 0, 0).
