|Abstract||The rate of the capture reaction of mu /sup -/ mesons was calculated in Li/sup 6/ leading to the He/sup 6/ ground state (Godfrey-type reaction), a process which is expected to give more accurate information on the mu -capture coupling constants than the capture in nuclei leading to all possible final states. Induced pseudoscalar coupling and Gell-Mann's conserved vector current are taken into account, and numerical results are given assuming a universal weak interaction. The Li/sup 6/ and He/sup 6/ wave functions are taken as shell model states with LS coupling and configuration mixing. It is found that the capture rate is sensitive to the p-shell radius, and for a determination of the latter, the Stanford electron scattering results for Li/sup 6/ were analyzed taking into account the recoil motion of the alpha -particle core; however, the main portion of the radial integral in the theoretical capture rate may be read from the scattering data directly. The capture rate is found to be of the order of 0.4 x 10/sup 3/ sec/sup -1/, its exact value still depending on some assumptions about the coupling. (auth)|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
