Double Beta Decays and Neutrinos

  • Hiroyasu Ejiri

Abstract

Interest in double beta decays (ββ) has recently increased in nuclear and particle physics. Within the framework of the minimal SU(2) L × U(1) standard theory, double β decay is followed by two neutrino (2v) emission, and the lepton number (L) is conserved.
