1  The quoted systematic error includes a contribution of 0.00013 (added in quadrature) from uncertainties on radiative corrections and on the Michel parameter $\eta $.
2  The quoted systematic error includes a contribution of 0.00011 (added in quadrature) from the dependence on the Michel parameter $\eta $.
3  The quoted systematic error includes a contribution of $0.00023$ (added in quadrature) from the dependence on the Michel parameter $\eta $.
4  ${{\mathit \eta}}$ constrained = 0. These values incorporated into a two parameter fit to ${{\mathit \rho}}$ and ${{\mathit \eta}}$ by DERENZO 1969 .
