Title: Systematics of Evaluated Half-lives of Double-beta Decay

A new evaluation of 2β-decay half lives and their systematics is presented. These data extend the previous evaluation and include the analysis of all recent measurements. The nuclear matrix elements for 2β-decay transitions in 12 nuclei have been extracted. The recommended values are compared with the large-scale shell-model, QRPA calculations, and experimental data. A T{sub 1/2}{sup 2ν}∼1/E{sup 8} systematic trend has been observed for recommended {sup 128,130}Te values. This trend indicates similarities for nuclear matrix elements in Te nuclei and was predicted for 2β(2ν)-decay mode. The complete list of results is available online at (http://www.nndc.bnl.gov/bbdecay/)
