The spectroscopy of hypernuclei across a wide range of mass number has been studies by the associated production (π+, K+) technique. The energies of Λ single particle states in the s, p, d, and f shells have been determinedas a function of A. It is demonstrated that the (π+, K+) reaction is the method of choice for studying Λ-bound levels of hypernuclei.
