Bound muon decay: A Harbinger for the New Physics

Dr. M. Jamil Aslam
SBASSE 10-304

When a muon bound in an atom decays, there is a small probability that the daughter electron remains bound. That probability is evaluated. Surprisingly, a significant part of the rate is contributed by the negative energy component of the wave function. In this talk, I will explain how one can calculate this probability and also compare our result with the existing literature.
