Recently a peak structure was observed near the $K^{-} p p$ threshold in the in-flight ${}^{3} {\rm He} (K^{-} , \, \Lambda p) n$ reaction of the E15 experiment at J-PARC, which could be a signal of a $\bar{K} N N$ bound state. In order to investigate what is the origin of this peak, we calculate the cross section of this reaction, in particular based on the scenario that the $\bar{K} N N$ bound state is indeed generated and decays into $\Lambda p$. We find that the numerical result of the…

Theoretical analysis on the K − 3 He → Λ pn reaction for the K̄NN bound-state search in the J-PARC E 15 experiment

We theoretically analyze the K−3He → Λpn reaction for the K̄NN bound-state search in the JPARC E15 experiment. We find that, by detecting a fast and forward neutron in the final state, an almost
