Limit on ${{\boldsymbol W}_{{L}}}-{{\boldsymbol W}_{{R}}}$ Mixing Angle $\zeta $ INSPIRE search

Lighter mass eigenstate ${{\mathit W}_{{1}}}$ = ${{\mathit W}_{{L}}}$cos $\zeta −{{\mathit W}_{{R}}}$sin$\zeta $. Light ${{\mathit \nu}_{{R}}}$ assumed unless noted. Values in brackets are from cosmological and astrophysical considerations.

1  ACKERSTAFF 1999D limit is from ${{\mathit \tau}}$ decay parameters.
2  CZAKON 1999 perform a simultaneous fit to charged and neutral sectors.
3  The quoted limit is from ${{\mathit \mu}}$ decay parameters. BARENBOIM 1997 also evaluate limit from ${{\mathit K}_{{L}}}-{{\mathit K}_{{S}}}$ mass difference.
4  MISHRA 1992 limit is from the absence of extra large-$\mathit x$, large-$\mathit y$ ${{\overline{\mathit \nu}}_{{\mu}}}$ ${{\mathit N}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\overline{\mathit \nu}}_{{\mu}}}$ X events at Tevatron, assuming left-handed ${{\mathit \nu}}$ and right-handed ${{\overline{\mathit \nu}}}$ in the neutrino beam. The result gives $\zeta {}^{2}(1−2{{\mathit m}^{2}}_{{{\mathit W}_{{1}}}}/{{\mathit m}^{2}}_{{{\mathit W}_{{2}}}})<0.0015$. The limit is independent of ${{\mathit \nu}_{{R}}}$ mass.
5  AQUINO 1991 limits obtained from neutron lifetime and asymmetries together with unitarity of the CKM matrix. Manifest left-right asymmetry is assumed.
6  BARBIERI 1989B limit holds for ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit \nu}_{{R}}}}{}\leq{}$10 MeV.
7  First JODIDIO 1986 result assumes ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit W}_{{R}}}}=\infty{}$, second is for unconstrained ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit W}_{{R}}}}$.
