${{\boldsymbol \mu}}$ DECAY PARAMETERS

$\xi {{}^\prime}$ = LONGITUDINAL POLARIZATION OF ${{\boldsymbol e}^{+}}$ INSPIRE search

($\mathit V−\mathit A$) theory predicts the longitudinal polarization = $\pm1$ for ${{\mathit e}^{\pm}}$, respectively. We have flipped the sign for ${{\mathit e}^{-}}$ so our programs can average.
