We attempt, in this article, to summarize the information now available, both experimental and theoretical, on the classification and decays of hyperons and heavy mesons. Our principal emphasis is on the "weak interactions" responsible for the slow decays of these particles. The "strong interactions" involved in production and scattering phenomena form a separate topic, which we do not discuss at length. We do, however, mention the hyperfragments, the study of which bears on both kinds of interactions.
