The axial vector current in beta decay
@article{GellMann1960TheAV, title={The axial vector current in beta decay}, author={Murray GellMann and Maurice M. L{\'e}vy}, journal={Il Nuovo Cimento (19551965)}, year={1960}, volume={16}, pages={705726} }
SummaryIn order to derive in a convincing manner the formula of Goldberger and Treiman for the rate of charged pion decay, we consider the possibility that the divergence of the axial vector current in βdecay may be proportional to the pion field. Three models of the pionnucleon interaction (and the weak current) are presented that have the required property. The first, using gradient coupling, has the advantage that it is easily generalized to strange particles, but the disadvantages of…

Isospin breaking in the nucleon mass and the sensitivity of β decays to new physics.

 2014
The pionpole enhancement of gP makes β decays much more sensitive to nonstandard pseudoscalar interactions than previously thought and it is argued that the results could be rapidly improved with updated computations and the direct calculation of certain ratios in lattice QCD.
