The two-neutrino (2ν2β) and neutrinoless (0ν2β) double-β decays of 96Ru are investigated for the transitions to the ground state, 0+ gs, and 0+ and 2+ excited states in 96Mo by using the quasiparticle random-phase approximation combined with the multiple-commutator model. G-matrix-based nuclear forces are used in realistic single-particle model spaces. All the possible channels, β+β+, β+EC, and ECEC, are discussed for both the 2ν2β and 0ν2β decays. The associated half-lives are computed, in particular the one corresponding to the resonant neutrinoless double electron capture (R0νECEC) transition to the 2.712.68-MeV nuclear state in 96Mo. This work represents the most complete theoretical investigation of the double-β-decay properties of 96Ru thus far.
