Title: Branching ratios, CP asymmetries and polarizations of $$B\rightarrow \psi (2S) V$$ decays

Abstract

We analyze the non-leptonic decays B/B s→ψ(2S)V with V=(ρ,ω,K*,Φ) by employing the perturbative QCD (pQCD) factorization approach. Here the branching ratios, the CP asymmetries and the complete set of polarization observables are investigated systematically. Besides the traditional contributions from the factorizable and non-factorizable diagrams at the leading order, the next-to-leading order (NLO) vertex corrections could also provide considerable contributions. The pQCD predictions for the branching ratios of the B (s)→ψ(2S)K*,ψ(2S) decays are consistent with the measured values within errors. As for B→ψ(2S)ρ,ψ(2S)ω decays, the branching ratios can reach the order of 10 –5 and could be measured in the LHCb and Belle-II experiments. The numerical results show that the direct CP asymmetries of the considered decays are very small. Thus the observation of any large direct CP asymmetry for these decays will be a signal for new physics. The mixing-induced CP asymmetries in the neutral modes are very close to sin2β (s), which suggests that these channels can give a cross-check on the measurement of the Cabbibo–Kobayashi–Maskawa (CKM) angle β and β s. We find that the longitudinal polarization fractions f 0 are suppressed to ~50% due to the large non-factorizable contributions. The magnitudes and phases of the two transversemore » amplitudes A∥ and A⊥ are roughly equal, which is an indication for the approximate light-quark helicity conservation in these decays. The overall polarization observables of B→ψ(2S)K* 0 and B s→ψ(2S)Φ channels are also in good agreement with the experimental measurements as reported by LHCb and BaBar. In conclusion, other results can also be tested by the LHCb and Belle-II experiments.« less

  • We report the observations of the decays B{sup +}{r_arrow}{psi}(2S)K{sup +} and B{sup 0}{r_arrow}{psi}(2S)K{sup {asterisk}}(892){sup 0} in p{bar p} collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 1.8 TeV using a 110thinsppb{sup {minus}1} data sample recorded by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. We also reconstruct the decays B{sup +}{r_arrow}J/{psi}K{sup +} and B{sup 0}{r_arrow}J/{psi}K{sup {asterisk}}(892){sup 0} and measure the six ratios of branching fractions of these four decays. The relative branching-fraction results are shown to be consistent with phenomenological factorization calculations of hadronic B-meson decays. We use the world-average branching fraction B(B{sup +}{r_arrow}J/{psi}K{sup +}) to derive B{bold (}B{sup +}{r_arrow}{psi}(2S)K{sup +}{bold )}=(0.56{plus_minus}0.08{plus_minus}0.10){times}10{sup {minus}3}, B{bold (}B{supmore » 0}{r_arrow}{psi}(2S)K{sup {asterisk}}(892){sup 0}{bold )}=(0.92{plus_minus}0.20{plus_minus}0.16){times}10{sup {minus}3}, and B{bold (}B{sup 0}{r_arrow}J/{psi}K{sup {asterisk}}(892){sup 0}{bold )}=(1.78{plus_minus}0.14{plus_minus}0.29){times}10{sup {minus}3}, where the first and second uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. {copyright} {ital 1998} {ital The American Physical Society}« less
