The purpose of the present paper is the formulation of the analytical version of the resonance coupled-channel model (RCCM) originally developed for D + T → 5He** → → α + n reaction. The integral in the denominator of the Breit-Wigner type is examined in the expression for S-matrix elements of binary processes in this model. Imaginary part of this integral determines the energy-dependent decay width for the near-threshold channel. It is shown that this integral can be calculated explicitly with the Binet representation for the ψ -function (the logarithmic derivation of the gamma function). As the result the explicit expression for the S-matrix elements in the form of analytical functions of the channel momenta are obtained and the equivalence of the RCCM and the effective range approximation (Landau - Smorodinsky - Bethe approximation) is established on this basis. This allows expressing the parameters of the RCCM through the model independent system characteristics: the complex scattering length and the complex effective range. Several sets of model parameters of both approaches that provide a good description of the measured data on D + T → α + n reaction and D-T elastic scattering are derived. By this means we find the location of the S-matrix poles on different Riemann sheets which corresponds to Jπ = (32)+ state of 5He and 5Li. In particular, the location of the resonance ® and shadow (S) poles is determined: 5He: ZR = 46.9 – i37.2 (keV) ZS = 81.7 – i3.5 (keV) 5Li: ZR = 205.7 – i146.8 (keV) ZS = 264.4 + i112.0 (keV).

Our results agree well with previous findings. The possible generalizations of the results obtained are discussed.
