Title: Possible resolution of the B-meson decay polarization anomaly in R-parity violating supersymmetry

Abstract

We examine the possible resolution of the recently observed polarization anomaly in B{sup 0}(B{sup 0}){yields}{phi}K*{sup 0}(K*{sup 0})-decay within R-parity violating (Re{sub p}) SUSY. We show that a combination of the superpotential trilinear Re{sub p}-interactions, with the couplings {lambda}{sup '}, and the soft SUSY breaking bilinear Re{sub p} sneutrino-Higgs mixing, proportional to {mu}-tilde{sup 2}, can potentially generate the effective operators with the chirality structure necessary to account for this anomaly. However, we demonstrate that the existing experimental data on B{sub s}{yields}{mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -}-decay lead to stringent upper limits on the Wilson coefficients of these operators, which are about 2 orders of magnitude below the values required for the resolution of the B-decay polarization anomaly, and, therefore, it can hardly be explained within the Re{sub p} SUSY framework. As a byproduct result of our analysis we derive new limits on the products of the soft bilinear and the superpotential trilinear Re{sub p}-parameters of the form {mu}-tilde{sup 2}{lambda}{sup '}.

  • Recently BABAR and Belle have measured anomalous large transverse polarizations in some pure penguin B{yields}VV decays, which might be inconsistent with the standard model expectations. We try to explore its implications for R-parity violating (RPV) supersymmetry. The QCD factorization approach is employed for the hadronic dynamics of B decays. We find that it is possible to have parameter spaces solving the anomaly. Furthermore, we have derived stringent bounds on relevant R-parity violating couplings from the experimental data, which is useful for further studies of RPV phenomena.
  • Recent experiments suggest that certain data of B{yields}{pi}{pi},{pi}K decays are inconsistent with the standard model expectations. We try to explain the discrepancies with R-parity violating supersymmetry. By employing the QCD factorization approach, we study these decays in the minimal supersymmetric standard model with R-parity violation. We show that R-parity violation can resolve the discrepancies in both B{yields}{pi}{pi} and B{yields}{pi}K decays, and find that in some regions of parameter space all these requirements, including the CP averaged branching ratios and the direct CP asymmetries, can be satisfied. Furthermore, we have derived stringent bounds on relevant R-parity violating couplings from the latestmore » experimental data, and some of these constraints are stronger than the existing bounds.« less
  • The explanation of a 200thinspGeV R-parity violating squark to the DESY HERA high-Q{sup 2} anomaly would have an important impact on supersymmetry-breaking models. Here we show that a squark of mass around 200thinspGeV is disallowed in the minimal gauge-mediated SUSY-breaking models in the parameter space constrained by the radiative electroweak-symmetry breaking and the experimental lower limits on supersymmetric particles, even after including the large R-parity violating couplings. Supergravity-motivated models can, on the other hand, give rise to these scalar quarks in a wide range of parameter space. {copyright} {ital 1998} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • We investigate a neutrino mass model in which the neutrino data is accounted for by bilinear R-parity violating supersymmetry with anomaly mediated supersymmetry breaking. We focus on the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) phenomenology, studying the reach of generic supersymmetry search channels with leptons, missing energy and jets. A special feature of this model is the existence of long-lived neutralinos and charginos which decay inside the detector leading to detached vertices. We demonstrate that the largest reach is obtained in the displaced vertices channel and that practically all of the reasonable parameter space will be covered with an integrated luminositymore » of 10 fb{sup -1}. We also compare the displaced vertex reaches of the LHC and Tevatron.« less
