Isospin corrections for superallowed Fermi beta decay in self-consistent relativistic random-phase approximation approaches

Abstract : Self-consistent random phase approximation (RPA) approaches in the relativistic framework are applied to calculate the isospin symmetry-breaking corrections $delta_c$ for the $0^+ o0^+$ superallowed transitions. It is found that the corrections $delta_c$ are sensitive to the proper treatments of the Coulomb mean field, but not so much to specific effective interactions. With these corrections $delta_c$, the nucleus-independent $mathcalFt$ values are obtained in combination with the experimental $ft$ values in the most recent survey and the improved radiative corrections. It is found that the constancy of the $mathcalFt$ values is satisfied for all effective interactions employed. Furthermore, the element $V_{ud}$ and unitarity of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix are discussed.
