We compute the nuclear matrix elements (NMEs) corresponding to the neutrinoless double beta (0νββ) decays of nuclei which attract current experimental interest. We concentrate on ground-state-to-ground-state decay transitions mediated by light (l-NMEs) or heavy (h-NMEs) Majorana neutrinos. The computations are done in realistic single-particle model spaces using the proton-neutron quasiparticle random-phase approximation (pnQRPA) with two-nucleon interactions based on the Bonn one-boson-exchange G matrix. Both the l-NMEs and the h-NMEs include the appropriate short-range correlations, nucleon form factors, and higher-order nucleonic weak currents. In addition, both types of NMEs are corrected for the isospin symmetry by the recently proposed method in which the particle-particle proton-neutron interaction parameter (gpp) is decomposed into isoscalar (gT =0 pp ) and isovector (gT =1 pp ) parts. A detailed analysis of the l-NMEs and the h-NMEs is performed to benchmark our computer code and to compare with other recent calculations which produce h-NMEs that are in tension with each other. ...

Neutrinoless ββ decays to excited 0+ states and the Majorana-neutrino mass Hyvärinen, Juhani; Suhonen, Jouni (American Physical Society, 2016)The nuclear matrix elements (NMEs) corresponding to the neutrinoless double-β (0νββ) decays to excited 0+ states of major experimental interest are calculated. All these decay transitions are electron emitting (0νβ−β− decays) ...
Double charge exchange reactions as a probe for neutrinoless double beta decay nuclear matrix elements Santopinto, E.; Ferretti, J.; García-Tecocoatzi, H.; Magana Vsevolodovna, R.

C 98, 061601(R) (2018) is briefly discussed. It is also shown ...
Neutrino-nuclear responses for astro-neutrinos, single beta decays and double beta decays Ejiri, H.; Suhonen, Jouni; Zuberc, K. (Elsevier BV * North-Holland, 2019)Neutrino–nuclear responses associated with astro-neutrinos, single beta decays and double beta decays are crucial in studies of neutrino properties of interest for astro-particle physics. The present report reviews briefly ...
Analysis of light neutrino exchange and short-range mechanisms in 0νββ decay Deppisch, Frank F.; Graf, Lukas; Iachello, Francesco; Kotila, Jenni (American Physical Society (APS), 2020)Neutrinoless double beta decay (0νββ) is a crucial test for lepton number violation. Observation of this process would have fundamental implications for neutrino physics, theories beyond the Standard Model and cosmology. ...
