For discussions of the values of the weak coupling constants ${\mathit g}_{{{\mathit A}}}$ and ${\mathit g}_{{{\mathit V}}}$ obtained using the neutron lifetime and asymmetry parameter$~\mathit A$, comparisons with other methods of obtaining these constants, and implications for particle physics and for astrophysics, see DUBBERS 1991 and WOOLCOCK 1991 .

These are measurements of the component of ${{\mathit n}}$ spin perpendicular to the decay plane in $\beta $ decay. Should be zero if $\mathit T$ invariance is not violated.

1  EROZOLIMSKII 1978 says asymmetric proton losses and nonuniform beam polarization may give a systematic error up to $30 \times 10^{-4}$, thus increasing the EROZOLIMSKII 1974 error to $50 \times 10^{-4}$. STEINBERG 1974 and STEINBERG 1976 estimate these systematic errors to be insignificant in their experiment.
