Introduction to Hypernuclear Physics
Kiyoshi Tanida

I will introduce hypernuclear physics to students, especially those who are not familiar with hypernuclei. Subjects of my lecture will include:
  • What is hypernucleus?
  • Baryon-Baryon interaction and structure of hypernuclei.
  • Hyperons as nuclear impurities.
  • Properties of hyperons in nuclear matter.
  • Weak decay of hypernuclei and hyperon-nucleon weak interaction.
  • Results from some recent experiments.
  • Future prospects.
