GARCILAZO, H.; VALCARCE, A.  and  VIJANDE, J.. Stable bound states of N’s, Λ ’s and Ξ ’s. Rev. mex. fis. [online]. 2017, vol.63, n.5, pp.411-422. ISSN 0035-001X.

We review our recent work about the stability of strange few-body systems containing N’s, Λ’s, and Ξ’s. We make use of local central Yukawa-type Malfliet-Tjon interactions reproducing the low-energy parameters and phase shifts of the nucleon-nucleon system and the latest updates of the hyperon-nucleon and hyperon-hyperon ESC08c Nijmegen potentials. We solve the three- and four-body bound-state problems by means of Faddeev equations and a generalized Gaussian variational method, respectively. The hypertriton, Λ n p ( I ) J P = ( 1 / 2 ) 1 / 2 +, is bound by 144 keV; the recently discussed Λ n n ( I ) J P = ( 1 / 2 ) 1 / 2 + system is unbound, as well as the Λ Λ n n ( I ) J P = ( 1 ) 0 + system, being just above threshold. Our results indicate that the Ξ N N, Ξ Ξ N and Ξ Ξ N N systems with maximal isospin might be bound.

Keywords : Baryon-Baryon interactions; Faddeev equations; variational approaches.
