Title: B(E2) Evaluation for 0{sub 1}{sup +}→2{sub 1}{sup +} Transitions in Even-Even Nuclei

A collaborative study by Brookhaven-McMaster-Central Michigan is underway to evaluate B(E2)↑ for 0{sub 1}{sup +}→2{sub 1}{sup +} transitions. This work is a continuation of a previous USNDP evaluation and has been motivated by a large number of recent measurements and nuclear theory developments. It includes an extended compilation, data evaluation procedures and shell model calculations. The subset of B(E2)↑ recommended values for nuclei of relevance to the double-beta decay problem is presented, and evaluation policies of experimental data and systematics are discussed. Future plans for completion of the B(E2;0{sub 1}{sup +}→2{sub 1}{sup +}) evaluation project are also described.
