Pion Decay Channels

In this chapter, the kinematics and the decay rates for the pion decay channels relevant to the experiment are presented. This is necessary for the understanding of the experimental apparatus and its design which are discussed in the subsequent chapters. The pion beta and the decays, being the processes of interest, are discussed thoroughly. The other decay modes which act as background processes are introduced to varying degrees.
