    Low-temperature specific-heat experiments on δ-Pu stabilized by Ce give the value of the Sommerfeld coefficient γ in the close vicinity of 40 mJ/mol K2. The most precise data set for Pu-6.1 at. % Ce yields γ=(41.5±0.5) mJ/mol K2 and the Debye temperature θD=(103.0±0.5 K). As Ce is in a compressed α-Ce state, major contribution to the γ value comes from the Pu states. Theoretical calculations suggest that the 5f6 admixture in the 5f5 ground state is responsible for the high-γ value. Although the 5f states are not present at the Fermi level, low-energy excitations due to transitions of the 5f6→5f5 type contribute to the spectral density around the Fermi level.
