Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


We present results of systematic calculations of the isospin-symmetry-breaking corrections to the superallowed I=$0+,T=1 --> I=0+,T=1 beta-decays, based on the self-consistent isospin- and angular-momentum-projected nuclear density functional theory (DFT). We discuss theoretical uncertainties of the formalism related to the basis truncation, parametrization of the underlying energy density functional, and ambiguities related to determination of Slater determinants in odd-odd nuclei. A generalization of the double-projected DFT model towards a no core shell-model-like configuration-mixing approach is formulated and implemented. We also discuss new opportunities in charge-symmetry- and charge-independence-breaking studies offered by the newly developed DFT formalism involving proton-neutron mixing in the particle-hole channel.
