Title: Modification of the unitarity relation for sin2{beta}-V{sub ub} in supersymmetric models

Abstract

Recently, a more than 2{sigma} discrepancy has been observed between the well measured inclusive value of V{sub ub} and the predicted value of V{sub ub} from the unitarity triangle fit using the world average value of sin2{beta}. We attempt to resolve this tension in the context of grand unified SO(10) and SU(5) models where the neutrino mixing matrix is responsible for flavor changing neutral current at the weak scale and the models with nonproportional A-terms (can be realized simply in the context of intersecting D-brane models) and investigate the interplay between the constraints arising from B{sub s,d}-B{sub s,d} mixings, {epsilon}{sub K}, Br({tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma}), Br({mu}{yields}e{gamma}) and a fit of this new discrepancy. We also show that the ongoing measurement of the phase of B{sub s} mixing will be able to identify the grand unified model. The measurement of Br({tau}{yields}e{gamma}) will also be able to test these scenarios, especially the models with nonproportional A-terms.

  • We use a multiply-subtracted Omnes dispersion relation for the form factor f{sup +} in B{yields}{pi} semileptonic decay, allowing the direct input of experimental and theoretical information to constrain its dependence on q{sup 2}, thereby improving the precision of the extracted value of vertical bar V{sub ub} vertical bar. Apart from these inputs we use only unitarity and analyticity properties. We obtain vertical bar V{sub ub} vertical bar=(4.02{+-}0.35)x10{sup -3}, improving the agreement with the value determined from inclusive methods, and competitive in precision with them.
  • We investigate a possible nuclear correction to the NuTeV measurement of the weak-mixing angle sin{sup 2}{theta}{sub W}. In particular, a nuclear modification difference between u{sub v} and d{sub v} distributions contributes to the NuTeV measurement with the iron target. First, the modification difference is determined by a {chi}{sup 2} analysis so as to reproduce nuclear data on the structure function F{sub 2} and Drell-Yan processes. Then, taking the NuTeV kinematics into account, we calculate a contribution to the sin{sup 2}{theta}{sub W} determination. In addition, its uncertainty is estimated by the Hessian method. Although the uncertainty becomes comparable to the NuTeVmore » deviation, the effect is not large enough to explain the whole NuTeV sin{sup 2}{theta}{sub W} anomaly at this stage. However, it is difficult to determine such a nuclear modification difference, so that we need further investigations on the difference and its effect on the NuTeV anomaly.« less
  • The {beta}-decay Q{sub EC} values of the superallowed beta emitters {sup 26}Al{sup m}, {sup 42}Sc, and {sup 46}V have been measured with a Penning trap to a relative precision of better than 8x10{sup -9}. Our result for {sup 46}V, 7052.72(31) keV, confirms a recent measurement that differed from the previously accepted reaction-based Q{sub EC} value. However, our results for {sup 26}Al{sup m} and {sup 42}Sc, 4232.83(13) keV and 6426.13(21) keV, are consistent with previous reaction-based values. By eliminating the possibility of a systematic difference between the two techniques, this result demonstrates that no significant shift in the deduced value ofmore » V{sub ud} should be anticipated.« less
  • We briefly discuss the predictions of the heavy quark effective theory for the semileptonic decays of a heavy pseudoscalar to a light one, or to a light vector meson. We point out that measurement of combinations of differential helicity decay rates at Cleo-c and the B factories can provide a model independent means of extracting the ratio |V{sub ub}|/|V{sub cd}|. We briefly discuss the corrections to this prediction.
  • A model-independent extraction of {vert bar}{ital V}{sub {ital ub}}/V{sub cb}{vert bar} from exclusive nonleptonic-{ital B}-meson-decay data is discussed. It is noted that the ratio of the weak decay amplitudes {vert bar}{ital A}{sub {ital w}}({ital B}{sup 0}{r arrow}{ital K}{sup 0}{ital D}{sup 0})/{ital A}{sub {ital w}}({ital B}{sup 0}{r arrow}{ital K}{sup 0}{ital {bar D}} {sup 0}){vert bar} is given by the ratio {vert bar}{ital V}{sub {ital ub}}V{sub cs}{sup *}/V{sub cb}V{sub us}{sup *}{vert bar} without assuming any specific calculation methods of the weak decay amplitudes and it is discussed how to estimate {vert bar}{ital A}{sub {ital w}}({ital B}{sup 0}{r arrow}{ital K}{sup 0}{ital D}{sup 0})/{italmore » A}{sub {ital w}}({ital B}{sup 0}{r arrow}{ital K0}{ital {bar D}} {sup 0}){vert bar} from the exclusive nonleptonic-{ital B}-decay data under the presence of {ital B}{sup 0}-{ital {bar B}} {sup 0} mixing and final-state interaction.« less
