Weak Interactions without Change of Strangeness (Experimental)

Conference paper
Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 1/1965)

Abstract

In this series of lectures I want to talk mainly about the high energy neutrino experiments performed at CERN in which I participated during the last years. Some of the material I am going to present has been published in the Proceedings of the Conferences at Brookhaven [1], Hamburg [2] and Siena [3–5]. The techniques of producing and detecting neutrinos, as well as the theory of neutrino reactions, are extensively described in a recent yellow CERN-Report [6]. During the last three months the analysis of the data has been considerably improved and refined, so that there is growing confidence in the results. The new data is being prepared for publication. At the end I would like to say a few words about what has happened at lower energies, i. e. in μ-capture and related problems.

Keywords

Weak Interaction Track Length Bubble Chamber Neutrino Beam Recoil Proton 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.

Lepton conservation was introduced by E. J. Konopinski and H. M. Mahmoud, Phys. Rev. 92, 1045 (1953). Remarkably enough they assigned already opposite lepton numbers to μ and e, getting thereby μ-e selection rule.MathSciNetGoogle Scholar
