We present a new calculation of the capture rates, polarizations and asymmetry parameters of the final nucleus in the capture of muons by any spin- 1 2, isospin- 1 2 nucleus in the non-breakup channel. We treat nuclei as elementary particles and give explicitly the transition amplitude for any spin configuration. We apply our formulae to hydrogen and 3He, obtaining agreement with the experimental data. © 1976.
