Decay Angular Distribution and Spin

  • Claude Amsler
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 949)


A general method will be described to derive the angular distribution in the two-body decay of a particle with spin. Rotations of systems with angular momenta have already been introduced in Sect.  6.1.
