K-nucleon interactions are investigated in the framework of coupled-channels dynamics based on the next-to-leading order chiral SU(3) meson-baryon effective Lagrangian.

Abstract

K-nucleon interactions are investigated in the framework of coupled-channels dynamics based on the next-to-leading order chiral SU(3) meson-baryon effective Lagrangian. A recent determination of the 1s shift and width of kaonic hydrogen enables us to set accurate constraints on the coupled-channels meson-baryon amplitudes in the strangeness S=-1 sector. Theoretical uncertainties in the subthreshold extrapolation of the coupled-channels amplitudes are discussed. Using this framework, we give predictions for K --neutron interactions and for the spectrum of the Λ(1405) resonance. A simplified, effective three-channel model using leading order chiral SU(3) meson-baryon interactions is also constructed for convenient application in K-nuclear few-body calculations.
