Title: Shape of the unitary triangle and phase conventions of the CKM matrix

Abstract

A shape of the unitary triangle versus a CP violating parameter {delta} depends on the phase conventions of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa quark-mixing matrix, because the CP violating parameter {delta} cannot directly be observed, so that it is not rephasing-invariant. In order to seek for a clue to the quark mass matrix structure and the origin of the CP violation, the dependence of the unitary triangle shape on the parameter {delta} is systematically investigated.

  • We perform a global fit to the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa unitarity triangle using the latest experimental and theoretical constraints. Our emphasis is on the hadronic weak matrix elements that enter the analysis, which must be computed using lattice QCD or other nonperturbative methods. Realistic lattice QCD calculations which include the effects of the dynamical up, down, and strange quarks are now available for all of the standard inputs to the global fit. We therefore present lattice averages for all of the necessary hadronic weak matrix elements. We attempt to account for correlations between lattice QCD results in a reasonable but conservative manner:more » whenever there are reasons to believe that an error is correlated between two lattice calculations, we take the degree of correlation to be 100%. These averages are suitable for use as inputs both in the global Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa unitarity triangle fit and other phenomenological analyses. In order to illustrate the impact of the lattice averages, we make standard model predictions for the parameters B{sub K}, |V{sub cb}|, and |V{sub ub}|/|Vcb|. We find a (2-3){sigma} tension in the unitarity triangle, depending upon whether we use the inclusive or exclusive determination of |V{sub cb}|. If we interpret the tension as a sign of new physics in either neutral kaon or B mixing, we find that the scenario with new physics in kaon mixing is preferred by present data.« less
  • Measurements of the modes B {yields} {pi}{pi} and B {yields} {rho}{rho} and their implications on the angle a of the CKM unitarity triangle are presented. Results of the Dalitz analysis of the modes B {yields} D(*)0K(*) and the derived constraints on the angle {gamma} are then shown. These measurements are based on a sample of approximately 230.106 B pairs taken at the {upsilon}(4S) resonance collected by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy beam factory at SLAC.

  • The authors investigate unitary one-matrix models described by polynomial potentials. The authors find many different phases of these models at strong, weak and intermediate couplings characterized by multiple gaps in the spectral density. The one-gap phase is studied in detail and it shows multi-critical behavior with {gamma} = {minus} 1/m. The multiple-phase structure may have implications for the phases of string theory.
  • Macroscopic tensile and in-situ neutron diffraction measurements are reported from a 20.5 volume percent, 50.7 at% Ni-Ti fiber reinforced 6082-T6 aluminum matrix composite subjected to a room temperature, 4% tensile elongation. The austenite B2(110) diffraction intensity was essentially stable until approximately 0.9% strain, beyond which, the austenite B2(110) diffraction intensity strongly decreased with increasing tensile strain. The martensite M(001) diffraction intensity strongly increased from a zero intensity intercept at approximately 2.3% strain to the conclusion of tensile straining. This report concludes that the initial decrease in austenite B2(11) diffraction intensity locates the initiation of stress induced transformations in the NiTimore » reinforcement, furthermore this feature corresponds with an elevated yield point region in the macroscopic tensile results. Therefore, it appears that the elevated yield point region is caused by a temporary inhibition of fiber stress induced transformations.« less
