Title: Hadronic Charmless B Decays at the SLD

Abstract

Rare decays of beauty particles were studied in several two-body exclusive hadronic charmless modes using the 19.4 pb -1 Z-pole data collected with the SLD detector at SLAC from 1993 to 1998. These decays are mediated by both tree level b {yields} u and one-loop penguin b {yields} s, d transitions. Upper limits for the branching ratios are set for the investigated modes B s, B 0 {yields} P +P -, B + {yields} V P + and B s, B 0 {yields} V V , where the pseudoscalar particle P + is either {pi} + or K + and the vector particle V is either {rho} 0, K * 0 or {phi}. Using an event selection algorithm consisting of a set of hard cuts combined with a set of discriminator functions, the efficiencies range between 24% and 37% with near zero background.
