Neutrino energy from beta+ decay

I'm trying to understand the energy spectrum of neutrinos ejected from the sun. Any suggestions on a book that covers this aspect of beta+ decay? I'm just not sure how to treat the kinematics of a fusion reaction or decay- only collisions. Thanks.

That won't be terribly helpful. There are many, many processes that occur in the sun, and beta+ decay is only one small part of one of them: the 8B stage of the ppIII chain. You'll need to understand the entire Standard Solar Model to understand the energy spectrum of solar neutrinos. John Bahcall wrote a number of review articles; that would be a good starting point.
