Abstract Theoretical calculations of the capture rate and possible observations on the recoiling nucleus were made for the process mu /sup -/ + C/sup 12/ -- B/ sup 12/ + nu . The basic interaction for mu -meson capture is assumed to be the same as that in beta decay. Virtual pion effects which are included with and without the assumption of a conserved vector current, are difficult to observe because of the theoretical uncertainty as to the magnitude of the second forbidden contributions.
