Title: Search for heavy Majorana neutrino in lepton number violating decays of D K π e + e +

Abstract

Using a data sample with an integrated luminosity of 2.93 fb - 1 taken at the center-of-mass energy of 3.773 GeV, we search for the Majorana neutrino ( ν m ) in the lepton number violating decays D K π e + e + . No significant signal is observed, and the upper limits on the branching fraction at the 90% confidence level are set to be B ( D 0 K - π - e + e + ) < 2.8 × 10 - 6 , B ( D + K S 0 π - e + e + ) < 3.3 × 10 - 6 and B ( D + K - π 0 e + e + ) < 8.5 × 10 - 6 . The Majorana neutrino is searched for with different mass assumptions ranging from 0.25 to 1.0 GeV / c 2 in the decays D 0 K - e + ν m , ν m π - e + and D + K S 0 e + ν m , ν m π - e + , and the upper limits on the branching fraction at the 90% confidence level are at the level of 10 - 7 ~ 10 - 6 , depending on the mass of the Majorana neutrino. The constraints on the mixing matrix element | V e ν m | 2 are also evaluated.

abstractNote = {Using a data sample with an integrated luminosity of 2.93fb-1 taken at the center-of-mass energy of 3.773 GeV, we search for the Majorana neutrino (νm) in the lepton number violating decays D→Kπe+e+. No significant signal is observed, and the upper limits on the branching fraction at the 90% confidence level are set to be B(D0→K-π-e+e+)<2.8×10-6, B(D+→KS0π-e+e+)<3.3×10-6 and B(D+→K-π0e+e+)<8.5×10-6. The Majorana neutrino is searched for with different mass assumptions ranging from 0.25 to 1.0GeV/c2 in the decays D0→K-e+νm,νm→π-e+ and D+→KS0e+νm,νm→π-e+, and the upper limits on the branching fraction at the 90% confidence level are at the level of 10-7~10-6, depending on the mass of the Majorana neutrino. The constraints on the mixing matrix element |Veνm|2 are also evaluated.},
