Title: Branching ratio and CP asymmetry for B{yields}1{sup 1}P{sub 1}{gamma} decays

Abstract

We calculate the branching ratios for B{yields}(b{sub 1},h{sub 1}){gamma} at next-to-leading order (NLO) of {alpha}{sub s} where b{sub 1} and h{sub 1} are the corresponding orbitally excited axial vector mesons of {rho} and {omega} respectively. Using the SU(3) symmetry for the form factors, the branching ratio for B{yields}(b{sub 1},h{sub 1}){gamma} is expressed in terms of the branching ratio of the B{yields}K{sub 1}{gamma} and it is found to be B(B{yields}b{sub 1}{gamma})=0.53x10{sup -6} and B(B{yields}h{sub 1}{gamma})=0.51x10{sup -6}. We also calculate direct CP-asymmetry for these decays and find that its typical values lies around 11% and is negative like {rho} and {omega} in the standard model. The predicted value of CP-asymmetry, in confirmity with the observations made in the literature, is scale dependent which has also been discussed in detail.

  • We study the decays B{sup -}{yields}D{sup 0}{pi}{sup -} and B{sup -}{yields}D{sup 0}K{sup -}, where the D{sup 0} decays into D{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}, with the D{sup 0} reconstructed in the CP-even (CP+) eigenstates K{sup -}K{sup +} and {pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup +} and in the (non-CP) channels K{sup -}{pi}{sup +}, K{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}, and K{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup 0}. Using a sample of about 123x10{sup 6} BB pairs, we measure the ratios of decay rates R{sub non-CP}{sup {identical_to}}(B(B{sup -}{yields}D{sub non-CP}{sup 0}K{sup -})/B(B{sup -}{yields}D{sub non-CP}{sup 0}{pi}{sup -}))=0.0813{+-}= 0.0040(stat){sub -0.0031} {sup +0.0042}(syst), and provide the first measurements of R{sub CP+}{sup {identical_to}}(B(B{sup -}{yields}D{sub CP+}{sup 0}K{supmore » -})/B(B{sup -}{yields}D{sub CP+}{sup 0}{pi}{sup -}))=0.086{+-}0.021(stat){+-}0.007(syst), and of the CP asymmetry A{sub CP+}{sup {identical_to}}(B(B{sup -}{yields}D{sub CP+}{sup 0}K{sup -})-B(B{sup +}{yields}D{sub CP+}{sup 0}K{sup +})/B(B{sup -}{yields}D{sub CP+}{sup 0}K{sup -})+B(= B{sup +}{yields}D{sub CP+}{sup 0}K{sup +}))=-0.10{+-}0.23 (stat){sub -0.04}{sup +0.03}(syst)« less
  • We calculate the branching ratios and CP-violating asymmetries for B{sub s}{sup 0}{yields}{pi}{sup 0}{eta}{sup (')} decays in the perturbative QCD (pQCD) factorization approach here. We not only calculate the usual factorizable contributions, but also evaluate the nonfactorizable and annihilation type contributions. The pQCD predictions for the CP-averaged branching ratios are BR(B{sub s}{sup 0}{yields}{pi}{sup 0}{eta}){approx_equal}0.86x10{sup -7} and BR(B{sub s}{sup 0}{yields}{pi}{sup 0}{eta}{sup '}){approx_equal}1.86x10{sup -7}. The pQCD predictions for the CP-violating asymmetries are A{sub CP}{sup dir}({pi}{sup 0}{eta}){approx}-4.5%, A{sub CP}{sup dir}({pi}{sup 0}{eta}{sup '}){approx}-9.1%, A{sub CP}{sup mix}({pi}{sup 0}{eta}){approx}-0.2%, and A{sub CP}{sup mix}({pi}{sup 0}{eta}{sup '}){approx}27% but with large errors. The above pQCD predictions can be tested inmore » the forthcoming LHC-b experiments at CERN.« less
  • We calculate the CP-averaged branching ratios and CP-violating asymmetries for B{sup 0}{yields}{eta}{eta}, {eta}{eta}{sup '} and {eta}{sup '}{eta}{sup '} decays by employing the perturbative QCD (pQCD) factorization approach. The pQCD predictions for the CP-averaged branching ratios are Br(B{sup 0}{yields}{eta}{eta}){approx_equal}0.67x10{sup -7}, Br(B{sup 0}{yields}{eta}{eta}{sup '}){approx_equal}0.18x10{sup -7}, and Br(B{sup 0}{yields}{eta}{sup '}{eta}{sup '}){approx_equal}0.11x10{sup -7}, which are consistent with currently available experimental upper limits. We also predict large CP-violating asymmetries for the considered three decay modes, which can be tested by the future B meson experiments.
  • In this paper, we calculate the branching ratios and CP-violating asymmetries for B{sup 0}{yields}{rho}{sup 0}{eta}{sup (')} and B{sup +}{yields}{rho}{sup +}{eta}{sup (')} decays in the perturbative QCD factorization approach. In this approach, we not only calculate the usual factorizable contributions, but also evaluate the nonfactorizable and annihilation type contributions. Besides the current-current operators, the contributions from the QCD and electroweak penguin operators are also taken into account. The theoretical predictions for the branching ratios are Br(B{sup +}{yields}{rho}{sup +}{eta}{sup (')}){approx_equal}9x10{sup -6} and Br(B{sup 0}{yields}{rho}{sup 0}{eta}{sup (')}){approx_equal}5x10{sup -8}, which agree well with the measured values and currently available experimental upper limits. We alsomore » predict large CP-violating asymmetries in these decays: A{sub CP}{sup dir}({rho}{sup {+-}}{eta}){approx_equal}-13%, A{sub CP}{sup dir}({rho}{sup {+-}}{eta}{sup '}){approx_equal}-18%, A{sub CP}{sup dir}({rho}{sup 0}{eta}){approx_equal}-41%, A{sub CP}{sup dir}({rho}{sup 0}{eta}{sup '}){approx_equal}-27%, A{sub CP}{sup mix}({rho}{sup 0}{eta}){approx_equal}+25%, and A{sub CP}{sup mix}({rho}{sup 0}{eta}{sup '}){approx_equal}+11%, which can be tested by the current or future B factory experiments.« less
  • We present a measurement of the branching fraction and time-dependent CP violation parameters for B{sup 0}{yields}D*{sup +}D*{sup -}K{sub S}{sup 0} decays. These results are obtained from a 414 fb{sup -1} data sample that contains 449x10{sup 6} BB pairs collected at the {upsilon}(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e{sup +}e{sup -} collider. We obtain the branching fraction, B(B{sup 0}{yields}D*{sup +}D*{sup -}K{sub S}{sup 0})=[3.4{+-}0.4(stat){+-}0.7(syst)]x10{sup -3}, which is in agreement with the current world average. We also obtain an upper limit on the product branching fraction for a possible two-body decay, B(B{sup 0}{yields}D{sub s1}{sup +}(2536)D*{sup -})B(D{sub s1}{sup +}(2536){yields}D*{sup +}K{submore » S}{sup 0})<7.1x10{sup -4} (90% CL). In the traditional 2-parameter time-dependent CP analysis, we measure the CP violation parameters, A{sub CP}=-0.01{sub -0.28}{sup +0.28}(stat){+-}0.09(syst), Dsin2{phi}{sub 1}=0.06{sub -0.44}{sup +0.45}(stat){+-}0.06(syst). No evidence for either mixing-induced or direct CP violation is found. In a 3-parameter fit sensitive to cos2{phi}{sub 1} performed in the half-Dalitz spaces, s{sup -}{<=}s{sup +} and s{sup -}>s{sup +}, where s{sup {+-}}{identical_to}m{sup 2}(D*{sup {+-}}K{sub S}{sup 0}), we extract the CP violation parameters, J{sub c}/J{sub 0}=0.60{sub -0.28}{sup +0.25}(stat){+-}0.08(syst), 2J{sub s1}/J{sub 0}sin2{phi}{sub 1}=-0.17{sub -0.42}{sup +0.42}(stat){+-}0.09(syst), 2J{sub s2}/J{sub 0}cos2{phi}{sub 1}=-0.23{sub -0.41}{sup +0.43}(stat){+-}0.13(syst). A large value of J{sub c}/J{sub 0} would indicate a significant resonant contribution from a broad unknown D{sub s}**{sup +} state. Although the sign of the factor, 2J{sub s2}/J{sub 0}, can be deduced from theory, no conclusion can be drawn regarding the sign of cos2{phi}{sub 1} given the errors.« less
