Tests of the hyperon-nucleon interaction

Characteristics of the Nijmegen hyperon-nucleon potentials are discussed and available data associated with hyperons are reviewed. Although all potentials give good agreement with sparse two-baryon scattering data, the potentials differ in their spin structure and coupling strength between channels. Binding energy calculations for A = 3 to 209 and structure calculations for s-shell and p-shell lambda-hypernuclei provide a means for comparing the potentials.
