Form Factors and Absolute BRs

for D0p n / Kn

Belle in a nutshell

q²

- located at KEK / Japan
- KEKB Collider
- B-Factory at (4s) resonance
- peak luminosity 16.270 1/nb/s
- integrated luminosity 600 1/fb(as of June 2006; 280 1/fb used in this analysis)
- main physics goal: observation of CPV in B meson Decays

Why are semileptonic decays interesting?

q²

- single form factor fD(q2)
- calcuable in LQCD, but
- needs checking from data
- D-System ideal for experimental input
- results can be applied in B-physics (extraction of CKM parameters)

Form Factors - Theory

- in principle, two form factors f+(q²) and f-(q²)
- kinematically only f+(q²) relevant, f-(q²) suppressed by ml²
- three differentmodels that are frequently discussed in literature:

simple pole

modified pole

f+(q²)= (1-q²/m²) (1-aq²/m²)

Method of Reconstruction (Event Topology)

- tag side:
- reconstruction & fit of D0,± Kp, K2p, K3p
- reconstruction & fit of D*0,± Dp, Dg
- use either D or D* as primary meson
- signal side:
- reconstruction & fit of inclusive D*0,± via recoil from e+e- D(*) D*np/K
- reconstruction & fit of inclusive D0 via recoil from D* Dp
- reconstruction & fit of neutrino via recoil from D mpn

Measurement of Semileptonic Background (for pln)*

- procedure to measure background:
- 1. crosstalk from Kln:
- prepare special background sample, with K intentionally misidentified as p
- normalize to standard Kln sample
- then reweight the sample using known** efficiencies / fake rates (in p,)
- 2. background from vector mesons:
- get shapes for K*ln and rlnfrom MC (simulated ratio K*/r from PDG)
- normalize to data in region m²n > 0.3 GeV²

Measurement of Hadronic Background (for pmn)*

- procedure to measure background:
- prepare special background samples, with K(p) intentionally misidentifiedas m(subtract fake D0 background in these samples with the method described above)
- separate into same sign (SS) and opposite sign (OS) samples, with respect to the charges of the lepton and the slow pion
- semileptonic channels are highly suppressed in OS clean sample of hadronic background
- perform a 2-parameter fit in the standard OS sample, using the shapes from the OS background samples for K and p, to measure the effective fake rates
- then apply these fake rates in the background SS sample to obtain the backgrounds in the signal sample

Form Factor Theory

- in principle, two form factors f+(q²) and f-(q²)
- kinematically only f+(q²) relevant, f-(q²) suppressed by ml²
- applying certain boundary conditions, theory* suggests model-independently a pole-structure for the form factor:
