Isospin Violation ?


Isospin Violation

υτ

  • quark charge

  •  QED radiation

  •  theor. estimate

τ

q

W

2. quark mass

 phase space correction

 negligible

q’

3. pion mass (po≠ p+)

 phase space correction

 taken into account

e

q

4. meson masses (ro≠ r+ ?)

 phase space correction

 should be small

Outlook

  • Discrapency unresolved

  • Better theoretical estimates of isospin violation

  • More precise and more careful measurements

e+e-: radiative return

DaΦne, CLEO-c, b-factories, Nowosibirsk

e+e-: direct measurement

Nowosibirsk

τ: new measurements

τcf, CLEO-c, b-factories

New Physics

breaks the GIM mechanism


Experimental Searches

t-  m- g

  • inv. mass (m,g) = tau mass

  • energy (m,g) = tau energy

Background:

  • tm n n g

  • tm n n + random g

  • other background

tm m m is experimentally easier, but lower branching ratio (?)


Experimental Searches


t-  e- g

t-  m- g

Other Channels

DE = Ereco - s/2 Dm = mreco - mt


Current Status


t-  m- m+m-

Search:

at the LHC

tau sources:

Advantage: more taus

Disadvantage: more background

1 year @ low luminosity


t-  m- m+m- bei CMS

Simulation with underlying event

(low luminosity)


t-  m- m+m- at CMS

W  t nt

track reconstruction


Kinematics @ LHC

h = -ln tan q/2


Kinematics @ LHC

Level-1 Trigger:

Single MuonpT > 14 GeV

Di-MuonpT > 3 GeV


Outlook

b-factories:can approach 10-8 in most channels

LHC:only t m m m

> 1012 taus (low lumi)

efficiency 1% possible ???

limits of 10-10

LHC:can we use high-lumi running ???

work has just begun !
