The partially conserved axial-vector current hypothesis (PCAC) [1] has been successfully applied to the parity-nonconserving amplitudes of the nonleptonic hyperon decays [2] and to the nonleptonic K decays [3]. The ΔI = 1/2 rules are proved for all the processes except Σ decays in the approximation of putting the pion four-momenta equal to zero [4]. In addition, the branching ration K3π/K2π is calculated and found to be in good agreement with experiment.
