Abstract : By the requirements of the unitarity condition and the positive definiteness of the imaginary parts of the forward amplitudes, it is shown that the dominant Regge trajectories of amplitudes that contribute to forward scattering passing through integer values of angular momenta in the interval 0<t<4 microns squared, where t is the square of the momentum transfer and 4 microns squared is the square of the mass of the lowest intermediate state in the t-channel, must have definite signatures. This result is derived for amplitudes satisfying the Mandelstam representation. (Author)
