The 0 decay rate can be expressed as a product of independent factors: the phase-space factors, the nuclear matrix elements (NME) and a function of the masses of the neutrino species.
Unlike the Fourier transform of this transformation, discrete cosine transform, orthogonal transformation, which transforms the transform kernel is fixed, while the KL transform is a collection of images with different statistical properties of the nuclear matrix have different transformations that transform the nuclear matrix is a collection of images to determine the statistical properties, so the discrete KL transform is a transformation based on the demographic characteristics of the image.
