# Limits based on Mandelstam Variables

Since the Mandelstam variables are the scalar product of 4-momenta, which are invariants, they are invariants as well. The sum of these invariant variables must also be invariant as well. Find the sum of the 3 Mandelstam variables when the two particles have equal mass in the center of mass frame gives:

Since

This implies
