CP violation in polarized B -> pi l(+)l(-) and B -> pl(+)l(-) decays

Erkol, G
Wagenaar, JW
Turan, Gürsevil
We study the decay rate and the CP violating asymmetry of the exclusive B -> pi l(+)l(-) and B -> rho l(+)l(-) decays in the case where one of the final leptons is polarized. We calculate the contributions coming from the individual polarization states in order to identify a so-called wrong sign decay, which is a decay with a given polarization, whose width and CP asymmetry are smaller as compared to the unpolarized one. The results are presented for electrons and tau leptons. We observe that in particular decay channels, one can identify a wrong sign decay which is more sensitive to new physics beyond the standard model.


Magnetic moment of the rho meson in QCD light cone sum rules
Alıyev, Tahmasıb; Savcı, Mustafa (American Physical Society (APS), 2003-09-01)
The magnetic moment mu of the rho meson is studied in QCD light cone sum rules, and it is found that mu=(2.3+/-0.5), in units of e/2m(rho). A comparison of our result on the magnetic moment of the rho meson with the predictions of the other approaches is presented.
Spherically symmetric solutions of Einstein plus non-polynomial gravities
Deser, S.; Sarıoğlu, Bahtiyar Özgür; Tekin, Bayram (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-01-01)
We obtain the static spherically symmetric solutions of a class of gravitational models whose additions to the General Relativity (GR) action forbid Ricci-flat, in particular, Schwarzschild geometries. These theories are selected to maintain the (first) derivative order of the Einstein equations in Schwarzschild gauge. Generically, the solutions exhibit both horizons and a singularity at the origin, except for one model that forbids spherical symmetry altogether. Extensions to arbitrary dimension with a cos...
Electric dipole moments of charged leptons in the split fermion scenario in the two Higgs doublet model
Iltan, EO (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2005-11-01)
We predict the charged lepton electric dipole moments in the split fermion scenario in the framework of the two Higgs doublet model. We observe that the numerical value of the muon (tau) electric dipole moment is of the order of the magnitude of 10(-22) e cm (10(-20) e cm) and there is an enhancement in the case of two extra dimensions, especially for the tau lepton electric dipole moment.
Angular analysis of the decay B+ -> K+mu(+)mu(-) in proton-proton collisions at root s=8 TeV
Sirunyan, A. M.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2018-12-01)
The angular distribution of the flavor-changing neutral current decay B+ -> K+mu(+)mu(-) is studied in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV. The analysis is based on data collected with the CMS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.5 fb(-1). The forward-backward asymmetry A(FB) of the dimuon system and the contribution F-H from the pseudoscalar, scalar, and tensor amplitudes to the decay width are measured as a function of the dimuon mass squared. The m...
Magnetic field and curvature effects on pair production. II. Vectors and implications for chromodynamics
Karabali, D.; Kürkcüoğlu, Seçkin; Nair, V. P. (American Physical Society (APS), 2019-09-17)
We calculate the pair production rates for spin-1 or vector particles on spaces of the form M x R-1,R-1, with M corresponding to R-2 (flat), S-2 (positive curvature), and H-2 (negative curvature), with and without a background (chromo)magnetic field on M. Beyond highlighting the effects of curvature and background magnetic field, this is particularly interesting since vector particles are known to suffer from the Nielsen-Olesen instability, which can dramatically increase pair production rates. The form of ...
