Abstract

We propose to explain two observed anomalies that suggest extension of the minimal gauge scheme, the eμ production in the e+e- reaction and the anomalous y-distribution in νμ reactions, as being caused by a single object, a heavy muon. With more accurate neutrino data this explanation can readily be distinguished from that of a new quark production.
