Results are presented for a unified analysis of the reactions pp -> pp. pid -> pid and pid -> pp over the center-of-mass energy interval from pion threshold to approximately 2.4 GeV. These results for pid -> pp and pid elastic scattering are superior to previous VPI analyses of these reactions. In particular, the overall phase in pid -> pp has now been determined. Comparisons and predictions are made with previous (separate and unified) analyses of this two-baryon system. Several partial wave amplitudes show resonance-like behavior in these reactions.
