Abstract
The cross-sections for the reactions of the strange production p + p $\to$ p + $\Lambda$ + K+ and p + p $\to$ p + $\Sigma^0$ + K+near thresholds of the final states p$\Lambda$K+ and p$\Sigma^0$K+ are calculated in the effective Lagrangian approach. Our approach is based on the dominant contribution of the one-pion exchange and strong interaction of the colliding protons in the initial state. The theoretical values of the cross-sections agree reasonably well with the experimental data. The polarization properties of the $\Lambda$- and $\Sigma^0$-hyperons are discussed.
