1  BAYES 2011 obtains the limit $>$ 0.99909 (90$\%$ CL) with the constraint that $\xi {\times }({{\mathit \mu}}$ LONGITUDINAL POLARIZATION)${\times }\delta /\rho $ ${}\leq{}$ 1.0.
2  JODIDIO 1986 includes data from CARR 1983 and STOKER 1985 . The value here is from the erratum.
3  STOKER 1985 find ($\xi {}P_{\mu }{}\delta /\rho $) $>$0.9955 and $>$0.9966, where the first limit is from new ${{\mathit \mu}}$ spin-rotation data and the second is from combination with CARR 1983 data. In $\mathit V−\mathit A$ theory, ($\delta /\rho $) = 1.0.
