Title: Search for a massive invisible particle X 0 in B + e + X 0 and B + μ + X 0 decays

Abstract

We present a search for a non-Standard-Model invisible particle X 0 in the mass range 0.1-1.8GeV/c 2 in B +→e +X 0 and B +→μ+X 0 decays. The results are obtained from a 711 fb -1 data sample that corresponds to 772×10 6BB pairs, collected at the Υ(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB e +e - collider. One B meson is fully reconstructed in a hadronic mode to determine the momentum of the lepton of the signal decay in the rest frame of the recoiling partner B meson. We find no evidence of a signal and set upper limits on the order of 10 -6.
