Discovering the Nature of Neutrinos: How Nuclear Theory Will Advance This Grand Endeavor

Kyle Wendt | 19-LW-039

Executive Summary

We will build a novel model of neutrinoless double beta decay that can be efficiently computed and subsequently map this model back onto the real nuclei. The detection of the decay process and the measurement of its half-life is one of the most important experimental endeavors in science, requiring accurate calculations with quantified uncertainties of double beta decay nuclear transitions.
