In addition, spin symmetry allows us to relate the form factors for C = 7, to
those for C = ygy,, with the result that the electroweak transition current is
purely left handed at the baryon level. Note that in contrast to the case when
both hadrons are heavy, we do not know the normalization of either of these form
factors. Nevertheless, in terms of these form factors we find that
fr = gi =Fi Fr, fz = -92 = -f3 = 93 = F. , (8)
so that GA = -Gy, regardless of the unknown normalisations of Fr and F2.
In addition, if we assume that the amplitude for the decay A+ -. Art+ fac-
torises, we may write it as
M +-- = froap)(A+ iBs)u(v), (9)
A = Fl(mAn - mA) + FJ(mA. + mA - 2EA)
8 = Ft(m + m nA) - F_(mn+ - mA - 24).

value of r = F/Fr. The complete picture reveals itself when one looks at tir
full forms for A and B, eqn. (10). Then we see that A and B have district
series, occuring at Ft(mn+ - mA) A -F,(mat + mA - 2E:), F(mA: + mA) _
F2(mA. -ma-2EA), respectively. This means that there are two possible seroes
in a, both occuring at values of r = F,/Fr very close to -mn+ /mA. The effect
of these heroes on a and y is shown in fig. 1. Thus, given a curious accident in
the ratio r, oue could, in principle, obtain any value for a For these decays. It is
perhaps somewhat fortituous that the measured values are close to the originally
predicted values. On the other hand, the range of values of r within which one
could obtain a value of a significantly different from - I is so snall, that one would
have to have been extremely unlucky for this prediction not to have worked.
What this means is that for other heavy -- light transitions, such as At -"
nat+ and As -+ pan, one can obtain any value of a, but a -1 would occur for all
but a very narrow range of values of the ratio r. Put another way, a measurement
of a much different from -- I for any of these decays would give a very precise
handle on the ratio r, provided that one believes that the factorisation assumption
is valid, and that the leading order terms in the HQET expansion are sufficient
for description of the decay.
