Abstract

Three subjects in hypernuclear physics related to hyperon spins in nuclei are discussed. The precision γ spectroscopy technique has been applied to various p-shell hypernuclei and revealed spin dependence of ΛN interaction from experiments at KEK and BNL. It also provides a unique means to study g-factor of a Λ in hypernuclei. The asymmetry of proton emission in non-mesonic weak decay from a polarized Λ in a nucleus, which has recently been measured at KEK, disagreed with theoretical predictions of this process.
