**Interactions
of Hyperons and Hypernuclei **

**Contributor: G. Franklin. **

** **

**The conclusions reached through the talks and afternoon discussions
on hypernuclei and hyperons which are notable or unique to this workshop
are: **

** **

** **

**1. **
**From both experimental and theoretical considerations, further studies
of -hypernuclei
should not be a priority at existing facilities. **
** **

**2. **
**Better measurements of the
phase shifts are crucial to understanding the dense hadronic systems that
occur in stellar environments. **
** **

**3. **
**The study of hyperonic atoms continues to provide valuable insight
into the interaction between hyperons and nucleons. **
**4. **
**The
mass is the poorest known of the hyperons. A more precise measurement will
be a valuable discriminator between theoretical treatments. **
** **

**Priorities for this area of research, given in no particular order:
**

** **

** **

**1. **
**Maintain the AGS for strangeness research, both rare K-decays and
the hypernuclear program. **
**2. **
**Perform finite nucleus calculations of hypernuclei. **
**3. **
**Attempt to measure the
weak cross section and spin dependent observables. **
**4. **
**Determine the spin-dependence of the
interaction. **
** **

**5. **
**Determine the ground state binding of a
hypernuclei.
**
** **

**6. **
**Look for poles in the
scattering amplitude. **
**7. **
**Perform precision tests of the
rule in the non-mesonic decay of hypernuclei. **
** **

**8. **
**Extract YN phase shifts. **
** **

**9. **
**Produce and study -nucleus
atoms, (see [21]) **
