Strong Interaction Physics from Hadronic Atoms

  • E. Friedman
Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 9)


Strong interaction effects in kaonic, sigma and antiprotonic atoms are analyzed with density dependent (DD) t eff in a teff ρ approach to the optical potential. Different radial sensitivities are observed and the importance of realistic nuclear density distributions is demonstrated. For kaonic atoms the phenomenological DD potential can be related to the propagation of the Λ (1405) in the nuclear medium. For Σ atoms the potentials can be related to a relativistic mean field (RMF) approach which places constraints on various meson-Σ hyperon coupling constant ratios. For \(\bar{p}\) atoms DD potentials enable reasonable p-wave terms to be accommodated. In all cases the low density limit can be respected with the DD potentials.
