Binding energies of hypernuclei and three-body ΛNN forces

Phys. Rev. C 29, 684(R) – Published 1 February 1984
A. R. Bodmer, Q. N. Usmani, and J. Carlson


Binding energies of hypernuclei are calculated with use of accurate variational methods for A=3,5, with effective interaction calculations for A=5,9,13,, and with Fermi hypernetted-chain variational calculations for A=. Effective interactions and variational results agree within a few percent. For ΛN forces consistent with Λp scattering, agreement with the experimental energies is obtained with strongly repulsive Wigner type ΛNN forces, and for A>5 also with a weakened p-state ΛN strength about half that of the s-state strength.
