Mass--dependence of the Lambda hypernuclear decay widths

By G. Garbarino


Two different approaches have been employed for the evaluation of the decay widths of Lambda-hypernuclei (ranging from $^5_{\Lambda}$He to $^{208}_{\Lambda}$Pb) with the polarization propagator method. In ref.[1], the two-nucleon stimulated non-mesonic decay, $\Lambda NN\to NNN$, has been parameterized phenomenologically by means of data on the pion-nucleus optical potential. The other approach [2] consisted in a fully microscopic description of the non-mesonic decays through the first order approximation of the so-called bosonic-loop-expansion. Both calculations reproduce, with approximately the same accuracy, the experimental decay rates for the whole range of mass numbers considered.Comment: 4 pages, 2 figures.
