    Abstract

    Atomic effects on the tritium ft value including bound-state decay, imperfect wave-function overlap, screening, and electron exchange are considered for each of the species T+, T, T2, and T-. Corrections to the f value are tabulated and can be combined to extract an improved estimate for the axial-vector matrix element in tritium β decay.
