Abstract : The three-body leptonic decay modes of K-mesons was investigated extensively during the past year. The data indicate some interesting results which have not been sufficiently emphasized in the literature. In this analysis the present situation is reviewed, pointing out those models which seem excluded by the data and those which could be tested with additional experimental investigation. Three properties of the decay mechanism which were investigated are the spin and isospin symmetries of the matrix element and the dynamics of the interaction as shown by the form factors. (Author)
