1  The authors don't believe this indicates ${\mathit D}{\mathrm -wave}$ because the dependence of $\beta $ on the ${{\mathit \gamma}}$ energy is inconsistent with the theoretical prediction. A cos $^2\theta $ dependence can also come from $\mathit P$- and ${\mathit F}{\mathrm -wave}$ interference.
