It is conjectured that extreme limit, which includes

many Λs in nuclear matter, is the core of a neutron star.

nucleus

In this meaning, the sector of S=-2 nuclei ,

double Λhypernuclei and Ξhypernuclei is

just the entrance to the multi-strangeness world.

However, we have hardly any knowledge of the YY interaction

because there exist no YY scattering data.

Then, in order to understand the YY interaction, it is crucial to

study the structure of double Λ hypernuclei and Ξ hypernuclei.

In 2001, the epoch-making data

has been reported by the

KEK-E373 experiment.

Important issue:

Is the Hida event the observation of a ground state

or an excited state?

It is neccesary to perform 5-body calculation of this system.

Why 5-body?

Core nucleus, 9Be is well described as

α+α+ n three-cluster model.

This method for the Pauli principle is often employed in the study of light nuclei using microscopic cluster models.

Two αparticles are symmetrized.

Two Λparticles are antisymmetrized.

Before doing full 5-body calculation,

it is important and necessary to reproduce the observed binding energies of all the sets of subsystems in 11Be.

In our calculation, this was successfully done using the same

interactions for all subsystems:

surrounding nucleons

of the nucleus.

Λ

Hypernucleus

Λ particle plays a ‘glue like role’ to produce a dynamical

contraction of the core nucleus.

By reduction of B(E2) due to the addition of

Λ particle to the core nucleus, we can find the

contraction of nucleus by glue-like role of Λ particle.

For this study, it is necessary to calculate 6-body problem.

At present, it is difficult for me to perform 6-body calculation.

However, I think, it is good chance to develop my methodfor 6-body problem.

Fortunately, we will have much more powerful supercomputer (HITACHI SR16000) at KEK in June in 2011. This supercomputer enable me to make six-body calculation.

For the confirmationof Hida event, we expect to have more precise data at

J-PARC.
