Nuclear-structure calculations are important inputs for solving problems of fundamental physics. Such problems are related with, e.g., neutrinos and dark-matter particles and their interactions with atomic nuclei. In this article the focus is directed to the important problem of the renormalization of the weak axial coupling gA and accurate treatment of β spectrum shapes. As particular applications of the spectral shapes the spectrum-shape method (SSM) and the hot topic of “reactor antineutrino anomaly” are introduced.

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. ...
Muon-electron lepton-flavor-violating transitions : Shell-model calculations of transitions in 27Al Kostensalo, Joel; Suhonen, Jouni; Civitarese, O. (American Physical Society, 2018)In this paper we present the results of large-scale shell-model calculations of muon-to-electron lepton-flavorviolating transitions for the case of the target nucleus 27Al. We extend the previous shell-model calculations, done ...

Through explicit calculation of the shape factor, we show the expected changes ...
