Status Update of PSI Experiment R-89.01.1
THE PIBETA COLLABORATION
23 November 1995
The PIBETA project at PSI is a program of measurements with the aim of making a precise determination of the pion beta decay rate, initially to 0.5%. Significant delays as well as developments have occurred in this project since the original approval by the BV in 1992. The purpose of this document is to present a condensed update of the experimental method and the associated systematics.
