Scientists have enlisted powerful supercomputers to calculate a quantity known as the ‘nucleon axial coupling’ — which is central to our understanding of a neutron’s lifetime — with an unprecedented precision. Their method offers a clear path to further improvements that may help to resolve the experimental discrepancy.
