  author={P. Sarriguren},
  journal={Physical Review C},
Half-lives of ${\ensuremath{\beta}}^{+}$ decay and electron capture are studied in some selected superheavy nuclei produced in hot-fusion reactions, namely, $^{290}\mathrm{Fl}$, $^{293}\mathrm{Mc}$, $^{294}\mathrm{Lv}$, and $^{295}\mathrm{Ts}$. The nuclear structure is described microscopically from deformed self-consistent Skyrme Hartree-Fock mean-field calculations that include pairing correlations. The sensitivity of the half-lives to deformation and to the ${Q}_{\mathrm{EC}}$ energies… Expand
