Astroparticle physics, 2011 Exercise 1 Give your name and return on Apr 18th. Problem 1: Pion decay Consider the decay of charged pions ( m π 139 , 6 MeV) to muons ( m μ 105 , 7 MeV). The dominant decay mode is π + μ + + ν μ for positive charges. a) Calculate the spectrum of muons assuming fast pions (
