Generalization of the sum rule for double Gamow-Teller operators

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We show that for Pauli-blocked nuclei, in the closure approximation, the summed strength for the double Gamow-Teller 0+ 0+ transitions is less than the value 6(N-Z)(N-Z+1) and that the difference can be related to sum rules for magnetic dipole transitions, which in turn can be related to the double Gamow-Teller matrix element for the transition from the 0+ initial state to its double isobaric analog state. A wrong isospin phase sum rule is found that is valid in limited cases.
