One of the great puzzles of elementary‐particle physics is how to understand the relationships between the muon and the electron. The set of properties that the muon and electron possess in common are collectively described by the phrase “muon–electron universality.” This set is large and comprises most of the properties of the muon and electron; see Table 1, page 44.
