μ^{} Capture Rate in (pμp)
Abstract
The probability of finding the ortho, L=1, (pμp) system in an s=12 state at the time of μ^{} capture, was calculated using the techniques developed by Weinberg. A wave function correct to first order in the muontoproton mass ratio was used in the calculation, giving a probability lying between 0.99933 and 0.99952. This result was due to the fact that the contact term in the spinorbit Hamiltonian masked the effects of the other terms. The errors due to the use of the approximate wave function in this calculation were analyzed qualitatively and found to be small.
