Title: Radiative and Leptonic B-meson Decays from the B-factories

Abstract

Radiative and leptonic decays of B-mesons represent an excellent laboratory for the search for New Physics. I present here recent results on radiative and leptonic decays from the Belle and BABAR collaborations. Radiative penguin and leptonic B-meson decays are excellent probes for investigating the effects of New Physics. Although current measurements are in agreement with the Standard Model expectations, they are still quite useful for setting bounds on possible NP models. The B {yields} X{sub s}{gamma} and B {yields} {tau}{nu} measurements, for example, put strong constraints on the mass of charged Higgs bosons in Type II two-Higgs double models. The B {yields} X{sub s}{gamma} branching fraction measurements also constrain models with universal extra dimensions.
