Abstract : In order to facilitate analysis of muon capture in 16O, results are presented of a shellmodel calculation of lowlying oddparity states of 16O and 16N, including the effects of a twoparticle spinorbit interaction. Calculated energy levels and rates for various betadecay and muoncapture transitions are given as functions of the spinorbit interaction strength. Formulas are obtained for singlelevel muoncapture rates for the following transitions: 12C(0+) 12B(1+); 16O(0+) to 16N(0); 16O(0+) to 16N(1); and 16O(0+) to 16N(2). The formulas include effects of finite nuclear size and relativistic treatment of the muon, and are presented in a form showing explicit dependence on induced form factors and on configurationmixing coefficients for the various nuclear levels. Electron radial wave functions suitable for betadecay calculations involving light elements (Z < 10) are presented for an absolute value of kappa of < or = 2. These functions are then applied to the firstforbidden unique decay of 16N and to the various decays of 14C and 14O. The analyses of the mass14 system, not yet completed, could provide important information about nuclear matrix elements and shellmodel states for these nuclei.
