Sorry, no etymologies found.
When the violation of parity was discovered I began a series of electronic experiments to investigate parity violation in hyperon decays.
Hyperon-hyperon interaction makes the EoS softer resulting in a smaller maximum mass neutron star compared with the case without the interaction.
As large number of hyperons may be produced in dense matter, hyperon-hyperon interaction is important and included in this model.
We investigate the effect of exotic matter in particular, hyperon matter on neutron star properties such as equation of state (EoS), mass-radius relationship and bulk viscosity.
It was contaminated by a large flux of L0, and so was also a hyperon beam, permitting the first measurements of L0 cross-sections as well as the
Delta0 + gamma, which demonstrated the existence of the Sigma0 hyperon and gave a measure of its mass.
I moved to the larger machine where I continued to do some weak interaction experiments, like for instance the determination of the parity violation in the beta decay of the lambda hyperon.
During this period, with a series of excellent students, we further studied hyperon decays.
S° hyperon as well as differential cross-sections for the production of those particles by pions.
Other experiments yielded information on pion-proton scattering, parity violation in non-leptonic hyperon decay, and the branching ratios in positive K meson decay.
