We perform a Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) statistical analysis of a number of measured groundstate-to-ground-state single β+/electron-capture and β− decays in the nuclear mass range of A = 62–142. The corresponding experimental comparative half-lives (log f t values) are compared with the theoretical ones obtained by the use of the proton-neutron quasiparticle random-phase approximation (pnQRPA) with G-matrixbased effective interactions. The MCMC analysis is performed separately for 47 isobaric triplets and 28 more extended isobaric chains of nuclei to extract values and uncertainties for the effective axial-vector coupling constant gA in nuclear-structure calculations performed in the pnQRPA framework. As far as available, measured half-lives for two-neutrino ββ− decays occurring in the studied isobaric chains are analyzed as well.

Effective axial-vector strength within proton-neutron deformed quasiparticle random-phase approximation Delion, D. S.; Dumitrescu, A.; Suhonen, J. (American Physical Society, 2019)We use the available experimental Gamow-Teller β− and β+/EC (electron-capture) decay rates between 0+ and 1+ ground states in neighboring even-even and odd-odd nuclei, combined with 2νββ half-lives, to analyze the influence ...
Polarization corrections to single-particle energies studied within the energy-density-functional and quasiparticle random-phase approximation approaches Tarpanov, D.; Toivanen, Jussi; Dobaczewski, Jacek; Carlsson, B. G. (American Physical Society, 2014)Background: Models based on using perturbative polarization corrections and mean-field blocking approxima- tion give conflicting results for masses of odd nuclei. Purpose: We systematically investigate the polarization ...
Spin-multipole nuclear matrix elements in the pn quasiparticle random-phase approximation: Implications for β and ββ half-lives Kostensalo, Joel; Suhonen, Jouni (American Physical Society, 2017)Half-lives for 148 potentially measurable 2nd-, 3rd-, 4th-, 5th-, 6th-, and 7th-forbidden unique beta transitions are predicted. To achieve this, the ratio of the nuclear matrix elements (NMEs), calculated by the ...
Delion, Doru-Sabin; Suhonen, Jouni (American Physical Society, 2013)We describe low-lying collective states in deformed even-even nuclei within a deformed quasiparticle randomphase approximation (dQRPA) by using a single-particle basis with good angular momentum. The statistical factors, ...
