1  This LUK 2000 value is for $\alpha\mathrm {({{\overline{\mathit \Xi}}^{+}})}$ $\alpha _{+}({{\overline{\mathit \Lambda}}}$). We assume $\mathit CP$ conservation here by including it in the average for $\alpha\mathrm {({{\mathit \Xi}^{-}})}$ $\alpha _{−}({{\mathit \Lambda}}$). But see the second data block below for the $\mathit CP$ test.
