The separation method was used to calculate the strength of the Λ-nucleus potential assuming a Kovacs-Lichtenberg Λ-nucleon interaction acting only inS-states of relative motion. The result of our calculation is −16 MeV, in fairly good agreement with Walecka’s calculations and with experiment.


Si è usato il metodo di separazione per calcolare l’intensità del potenziale Λ-nucleo, presupponendo una interazione di Kovacs-Lichtenberg Λ-nucleone, che agisce solo in stati di moto relativoS. Il risultato del nostro calcolo è −16 MeV, in buon accordo con i calcoli di Walecka e con gli esperimenti.
