Abstract

Nuclear-structure theory has advanced quickly in recent years. The field is now at the point at which an accurate calculation of the nuclear matrix elements governing neutrinoless double-beta decay should soon be possible. I describe some promising theoretical many-body methods and their application to double-beta decay.
