Masahiro Morii

Harvard University

KEK Theory Group Seminar

15 November 2005

- Introduction: Why semileptonic B decays?
- CKM matrix — Unitarity Triangle — CP violation
- |Vub| vs. sin2b

- |Vub| from inclusiveb→ uv decays
- Measurements: lepton energy, hadron mass, lepton-neutrino mass
- Theoretical challenge: Shape Function

- |Vub| from exclusiveb→ uv decays
- Measurements: G(B→ pv)
- Theoretical challenge: Form Factors

- Summary

M. Morii, Harvard

- Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix connects the weak and mass bases of the quarks
- We don’t know the origin of the EW symmetry breaking Fermion masses and the CKM matrix are inputs to the SM
- We are looking for the Higgs particle at the Tevatron, and at the LHC in the future

- Unlike the fermion masses, the CKM matrix contains more measurable quantities than the number of degrees of freedom

- We don’t know the origin of the EW symmetry breaking Fermion masses and the CKM matrix are inputs to the SM

M. Morii, Harvard

- The CKM matrix looks like this
- It’s not completely diagonal
- Off-diagonal components are small
- Transition across generations isallowed but suppressed

- The “hierarchy” can be best expressed in theWolfenstein parameterization:
- One irreducible complex phase CP violation
- The only source of CP violation in the minimal Standard Model

M. Morii, Harvard

Are there additional (non-CKM) sources of CP violation?

- The CKM mechanism fails to explain the amount of matter-antimatter imbalance in the Universe
- ... by several orders of magnitude

- New Physics beyond the SM is expected at 1-10 TeV scale
- e.g. to keep the Higgs mass < 1 TeV/c2
- Almost all theories of New Physics introduce new sources of CP violation (e.g. 43 of them in supersymmetry)
- Precision studies of the CKM matrix may uncover them

New sources of CP violation almost certainly exist

M. Morii, Harvard

- V†V = 1 gives us
- Measurements of angles and sides constrain the apex (r, h)

This one has the 3 terms in the same order of magnitude

A triangle on the complex plane

M. Morii, Harvard

- Compare the measurements (contours) on the (r, h) plane
- If the SM is the whole story,they must all overlap

- The tells us this is trueas of summer 2004
- Still large enough for NewPhysics to hide

- Precision of sin2b outstrippedthe other measurements
- Must improve the others tomake more stringent test

M. Morii, Harvard

- Zoom in to see the overlap of “the other” contours
- It’s obvious: we must makethe green ring thinner

- Left side of the Triangle is
- Uncertainty dominated by15% on |Vub|

Measurement of |Vub| is complementary to sin2b

Goal: Accurate determination of both |Vub| and sin2b

M. Morii, Harvard

- Best probe: semileptonic b u decay
- The problem: b cv decay
- How can we suppress 50× larger background?

Tree level

M. Morii, Harvard

- Inclusive: Use mu << mc difference in kinematics
- Maximum lepton energy 2.64 vs. 2.31 GeV
- First observations (CLEO, ARGUS, 1990)used this technique
- Only 6% of signal accessible
- How accurately do we know this fraction?

- Exclusive: Reconstruct final-state hadrons
- Bpv, Brv, Bwv, Bhv, …
- Example: the rate for Bpv is
- How accurately do we know the FFs?

Form Factor(3 FFs for vector mesons)

M. Morii, Harvard

- There are 3 independent variables in B→Xv
- Signal events have smaller mX Larger E and q2

E = lepton energy

q2 = lepton-neutrino mass squared

u quark turns into 1 or more hardons

mX = hadron system mass

Belle

M. Morii, Harvard

- Tree level rate must be corrected for QCD
- Operator Product Expansion givesus the inclusive rate
- Expansion in as(mb) (perturbative)and 1/mb (non-perturbative)
- Main uncertainty (5%) from mb5 2.5% on |Vub|

- But we need the accessible fraction(e.g., Eℓ> 2 GeV) of the rate

known to O(as2)

Suppressed by 1/mb2

M. Morii, Harvard

- OPE doesn’t work everywhere in the phase space
- OK once integrated
- Doesn’t converge, e.g., near the E end point

- Resumming turns non-perturb. terms into a Shape Function
- b quark Fermi motion parallel to the u quark velocity
- leading term is O(1/mb) instead of O(1/mb2)

Rough features (mean, r.m.s.) are known

Details, especially the tail, are unknown

M. Morii, Harvard

|Vub| world average as of Summer 2005

- |Vub| determined to 7.6%
- The SF parameters can be improved with b→ sg,b cv measurements
- What’s the theory error?

M. Morii, Harvard

- Quark-hadron duality is not considered
- b cv and b→ sg data fit well with the HQE predictions

- Weak annihilation 1.9% error
- Expected to be <2% of the total rate
- Measure G(B0 Xuv)/G(B+ Xuv)to improve the constraint
- Reduce the effect by rejecting the high-q2 region

- Subleading Shape Function 3.5% error
- Higher order non-perturbative corrections
- Cannot be constrained with b→ sg

- Ultimate error on inclusive |Vub| may be ~5%

M. Morii, Harvard

- Measure specific final states, e.g., B→pv
- Can achieve good signal-to-background ratio
- Branching fractions in O(10-4) Statistics limited

Errors on |Vub| dominated by the FF normalization

M. Morii, Harvard

- Form factor normalization dominates the error on |Vub|
- Experimental error will soon reach 5%

- Significant efforts in both LQCD and LCSR needed
- Spread among the calculations still large
- Reducing errors below 10% will be a challenge

- Combination of LQCD/LCSR with the measured q2 spectrum and dispersive bounds may improve the precision
