1  BRITTON 1992B is from a search for additional peaks in the ${{\mathit e}^{+}}$ spectrum from ${{\mathit \pi}^{+}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}^{+}}{{\mathit \nu}_{{e}}}$ decay at TRIUMF. See also BRITTON 1992 .
2  BRYMAN 1983B obtain upper limits from both direct peak search and analysis of B( ${{\mathit \pi}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}}{{\mathit \nu}}$ )$/$B( ${{\mathit \pi}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit \mu}}{{\mathit \nu}}$ ). Latter limits are not listed, except for this entry (i.e. $-$ we list the most stringent limits for given mass).
3  Analysis of ( ${{\mathit \pi}^{+}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}^{+}}{{\mathit \nu}_{{e}}}$ )$/$( ${{\mathit \pi}^{+}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit \mu}^{+}}{{\mathit \nu}_{{\mu}}}$ ) and ( ${{\mathit K}^{+}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit e}^{+}}{{\mathit \nu}_{{e}}}$ )$/$( ${{\mathit K}^{+}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit \mu}^{+}}{{\mathit \nu}_{{\mu}}}$ ) decay ratios.
