1
Rare B Decays Chris Parkes SUPA Postgraduate Lectures Introduction Radiative decays b s b d Electroweak Penguin b sl + l - Rate Forward backward asymmetry Final states with neutrinos

2
B mesons / Baryons Masses known to a few MeV and various excitations Baryons In spectator model b lifetimes would all be the same –Non-spectator effects give rise to a hierarchy Theory and experimental pattern in agreement Evidence 1998 Accurate Mass 2005

3
What do we mean by a rare B-decay ? All decays ‘rare’ as decays out of generation Flavour Changing Neutral Currents (FCNC) are even more suppressed as forbidden at tree level in SM –b s –b d Rare in this context means not b c

4
Feynman Diagrams for B Processes

5
FCNC B decays Forbidden at tree level in SM Occur via Penguin / Box diagrams Sensitive to New Physics heavy particles –SUSY, non-SM Higgs

6
Operator Product Expansion (OPE) A method of formulating an effective theory of the interaction Feynman diagram full process description Or Effective point-like vertex e.g. decay Contains : 1)CKM elements V CKM 2)Matrix Element Operators non-perturbative - Lattice Calculations, HQET 3)Wilson Coupling Coefficients C i (there are 10) Aim to measure these – sensitive to new physics Form an effective weak Hamiltonian, effective vertices multiplied by effective coupling constants

Discovery of b s , B K* FCNC CLEO, 1993 (PRL 71,674) Later extended to inclusive b s rate measurement Rate sensitive to new physics

12
Current Result (BaBar/Belle)

13
bdbd

15
Discovery of b d

16
And… b d gluon (g )

20
Forward Backward Asymmetry of leptons sensitive to New Physics, determine C 7 C 9 C 10

21
Determined with low precision Requires a larger data sample LHCb or Super-B Factory

22
Channels with neutrinos

26
B (s) + -

27
Really really rare! SM box SM Penguin Sensitive to New Physics in SUSY models

28
B (s) + - Unique Experimental signature Easy to identify / trigger – good for ATLAS/CMS Really really rare! Needs LHC data sample for SM B s 3.5x10 -9, B d 1.0x10 -10 Current limits from Tevatron
