Title: Enhancement of Br ( B d μ + μ - ) / Br ( B s μ + μ - ) in supersymmetric unified models

We explain the 2.3σ deviation in the recent measurements of the neutral B meson decays into muon pairs from the standard model prediction in the framework of supersymmetric grand unified models using antisymmetric coupling as a new source of flavor violation. We show a correlation between the B d→μ⁺μ⁻ decay and the CP phase in the B d→J/ψK decay and that their deviations from the standard model predictions can be explained after satisfying constraints arising from various hadronic and leptonic rare decay processes, B-B¯, K-K¯ oscillation data, and electric dipole moments of electron and neutron. The allowed parameter space is typically represented by pseudoscalar Higgs mass m A≤1 TeV and tanβ H(≡v u/v d)≲20 for squark and gluino masses around 2 TeV.
