A coupled channel analysis of the centrally produced K+K- and pi(+)pi(-) fi
nal states has been performed in pp collisions at an incident beam momentum
of 450 GeV/c. The pole positions and branching ratios to pi pi and K (K) o
ver bar of the f(0)(980), f(0)(1370), f(0)(1500) and f(0)(1710) have been d
etermined. A systematic study of the production properties of all the reson
ances observed in the pi(+)pi(-) and K+K- channels has been performed. (C)
