Simple wave functions for 11,12Be have been around for a long time. They have been tested against many independent processes involving (and properties of) these nuclei. All are consistent, except 11Be(d,p), where the discrepancy is a 4.7σ effect for the 2+ state and 15σ for the ground state. Here, we propose a resolution to this dilemma.
