1  ORLOFF 2002 use the negative result of a search for neutral particles decaying into two electrons performed by CHARM to get these limits for a mostly isosinglet heavy neutrino.
2  ABREU 1997I long-lived ${{\mathit \nu}_{{x}}}$ analysis. Short-lived analysis extends limit to lower masses with decreasing sensitivity.
3  BURCHAT 1990 includes the analyses reported in JUNG 1990 , ABRAMS 1989C, and WENDT 1987 .
