Our Light-Front Quark Model(LFQM) based on the QCD-motivated effective

Hamiltonian has been successful in describing various exclusive heavy meson

decays :

(I) Leptonic P ln decays

(II) Semileptonic P Pln decays,

(III) Rare B Kl+l- decays,

1. Motivation

Exclusive heavy meson decays has provided useful testing ground of SM

and QCD dynamics:

Experiment: easy to access

Theory: difficult to understand due to the nonperturbative QCD dynamics

Phenomenological approache to NPQCD

- To extend the applicability of our LFQM, we thus investigate
(I) vector meson decays constants

(II) magnetic dipole V(3S1) P(1S0)g decays of heavy-flavored mesons

such as (D,D*,Ds,D*s,hc,J/y) and (B,B*,Bs,B*s,hb,U)

Key idea of our LFQM: Using the variational principle to the QCD-motivated

- Our LFQM constrained by the variational principle has been successful in describing various exclusive heavy meson decays:
- (1) Leptonic P ln decays(i.e. decay constants of pseudoscalar mesons)
- (2) Semileptonic P Pln decays,
- (3) Rare B Kl+l- decays,

- Future works for other exclusive process:
- Semileptonic P V transitions
- Rare B decays such as B K*
- Other hadronic decays

Our LFQM is quite useful to calculate the hadronic matrix elements !

5. Conclusions

- In this work, we extend our LFQM to

(4) Decay constants of vector mesons

(5) Decay rates for magnetic dipole(M1) transitions V Pg

- -G(J/yhcg ) and G(D*+ D+g) fall within the experimental error bars.
- Unmeasured full widths for D*0 and D*+s was estimated.
- G(Uhbg ) is very sensitive to the value of Dm=MU-Mhb, which may help to
- determine the mass of hb experimentally.
