Window on weak and strong physics

Window on Weak and Strong Physics

Leptonic Decay

  • Decay constant fD incorporates the strong interaction effects (wave function at the origin)

  • Use charm leptonic decays to validate theory (LQCD) and apply to B mixing, which requires fB

  • Multiple tests with charm: fD, fDs (esp. ratios)

  • Sensitivity to New Physics

Window on weak and strong physics1

Window on Weak and Strong Physics

Semileptonic Decay

  • Use Strong Interaction theory (LQCD) for form factor, extract CKM

  • Use other measurements and unitarity for CKM and test theory

  • Theoretical uncertainties can be reduced in determinations of |Vub| if FF calculations can be validated with charm

  • Multiple tests available, semileptonicD decays to pseudoscalar mesons are cleanest

Ron Poling - ICHEP 2012


Window on weak and strong physics2

Window on Weak and Strong Physics

  • Widths of mixing and |Vub| bands will be reduced as charm validates LQCD

  • Long-term goal: Over-constrain CKM and search for New Physics

Ron Poling - ICHEP 2012


Charm physics at threshold

Charm Physics at Threshold

  • At ψ(3770) charm production is and

  • Fully reconstruct about 15% of D decays

  • Hadronic tag on one side gives “beam” of D0 or D+ on the other side for leptonic/semileptonic studies. Neutrino is reconstructed from missing energy and momentum

Ron Poling - ICHEP 2012


Besiii at bepcii

BESIII at BEPCII

  • Comparable capabilities to CLEO-c, plus muon ID

  • The big advantage: BEPCII is a two-ring machine designed for charm

    • Design (achieved) luminosity at ψ(3770): 1 (0.65) x 1033

Ron Poling - ICHEP 2012


Besiii data

BESIII Data

  • World’s largest ψ(3770) sample
