Abstract

We review the relativistic mean-field approaches to hypernuclear physics. This includes Lambda hypernuclei, anti-Lambda hypernuclei, and multistrangeness hypernuclei. We particularly focus on the properties of both ground state and collective excitations, hyperon binding energies, spinorbit splittings, magnetic moments, a stabilization of drip-line nuclei, and the hyperon impurity effect on nuclear collectivity. We also discuss briefly the influence of hyperons on neutron stars. We conclude that the relativistic mean-field approaches have achieved a great success in the studies of hypernuclear physics.
