secondaries if these ratios could be expected to be the same. The
first two estimates seem much more reliable, however, and their
average, 11 5+3.4, will be used as the best estimate'of"the number
of undetected decay secondaries. These are divided among the decay
modes in the same ratio as the analyzed decaylike events with
ionization.less than that of a 10'-cm pion: 607% K 2, 8.9% K3,
24.8% Kw2, and 5.6% Ke3. This gives.the following for the total'
population.of each mode.
No T mesons were found in this study, although they. have of course
been seen by others and are the most easily detected decay
mode. The likelihood of there being n events when.none are observed
is given by e -n, whichgives a maximum likelihood of zero with an .
rms spread of 1.0. We have, finally, the percent relative abundances:
