Despite producing the most sensitive weighing ever, Speake says, the experiment did not rule out the isospin idea.
The 4x4 matrix that achieves the Bogoliubov mixing has four possible forms for the four possible isospin cases obeying SU(2) x SU(2): (0, 0), (1/2, 0), (0, 1/2), and (1/2, 1/2).
In these proceedings of the conference of July 2004, contributors describe their results and research on nuclei near the limits of spin, excitation, energy, isospin and charge.

The EW isospin states define the flavor of the fundamental lepton and quark states.
PV](n,[alpha])) would provide information about the relative strengths of the weak meson exchange amplitudes, and with the longitudinal analyzing power measurement in the p + [alpha] system, allow the first comparison between isospin mirror systems in weak NN interaction.

These short remarks are enough for the purposes of the present paper; further considerations on other properties like strangeness, isospin and so on, whose conservation rules are necessary for instance to describe the decay of complex particles consisting of two or three quarks, are well known and thus omitted here for brevity.
