Title: Anomalous Enhancement of a Penguin Hadronic Matrix Element in B{yields}K{eta}{sup '}

Abstract

We estimate the density matrix element for the {pi}{sup 0}, {eta}, and {eta}{sup '} production from the vacuum in the large-N{sub c} limit. As a consequence, we find that the QCD axial anomaly leads to highly nontrivial corrections to the usual flavor SU(3) relations between B{sup 0}{yields}K{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}, B{sup 0}{yields}K{sup 0}{eta}, and B{sup 0}{yields}K{sup 0}{eta}{sup '} decay amplitudes. These corrections may explain why the B{yields}K{eta}{sup '} branching ratio is about 6 times larger than the B{yields}K{pi} one.
