  • *** 1. Introduction:Aim of nuclear physics

    Complete knowledge of the interaction among octet of baryons in a unified way


  • *Motivation of studying Strange and multi-strange hypernuclei to extract interaction between hyperon-N and hyperon-hyperon

    Existence of hypernuclei represent a new state of matter may exhibit new symmetries, selection rules, etc.*

  • *Presence of hyperon(s) may modify the properties of the core moment inertia of deformed nucleus rotational and vibrational states structure of nucleusHypernucleus provides us a opportunity to investigate properties of hyperon(s) in nuclear medium

    Hyperon(s) inside nuclei may be used as probe to study the nuclear structure*

  • *** It is believed that hyperons matter forming the inner core of neutron stars would have significant effect on their properties. Schaffner-Bielich [NP 804(2008)309 and ref. their in ] has discussed that hypernuclear potential depths, two-body hyperon- nucleon and hyperon three-body forces as well as hyperon-hyperon interaction would


  • *

    Therefore, determination of hyperon- nucleon and hyperon-hyperon interaction becomes very important for investigating the properties of neutron stars. have a impact on the maximum mass, mass-radius relation, and cooling properties of neutron stars.


  • *

    Hypernuclear physics is likely to play key role in the study:Properties of neutron stars

    Equation state of nuclear matter Figure in the next slide shows interdisciplinary nature of hypernuclei linking particle, nuclear, many-body, astrophysics etc. [ref. Erni et al arXiv: hep-ex/0903.3905]*

  • *Multi-strange hypernuclei Schaffner et al [Ann. Phys.(NY)235(1994) 35 ] observed that a would become particle stable against the strong decay if a sufficient number of bound s Pauli blocked this decay mode. Thus is the lightest system suggested to study. At present production of multi-strange hypernuclei seems to be impossible. ***

  • *However, it will interesting to theoretically study the stability of multi-strange systems. Such a study is likely to have implication on future experimental efforts in producing, identifying and measuring the properties of multi-strange hypernuclei.

    Therefore, we have included in our study multi-strange hypernuclei apart from strange ones.*
