Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Lecture 1

Lecture 1

  • History of B physics: 1977 – 2004

  • Significant facilities, past and present

  • B meson production and decay

  • CKM matrix

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Historical context

Historical context

  • 1974 was an exciting year for particle physics, with the discovery of the (2nd generation) charm quark (J/ψ) and the (3rd generation) τ lepton

  • The search for a 3rd generation of quarks was motivated by symmetry with the lepton sector as well as by the insight of Kobayashi and Maskawa (in 1973) that a 3x3 quark mixing matrix has an irreducible imaginary parameter that can lead to CP violation

Lectures on b physics

Initial results

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Discovery of the b quark

Discovery of the b quark

  • 1977: Lederman et al. discover Υ resonances in μ+μ- mass spectrum  Υ(1S), Υ(2S), Υ(3S)

  • Interpreted as bound states of a new quark, b, the first quark of the 3rd generation:

    • Electromagnetic decay seen (μ+μ-)

    • Decay width is narrow

  • Lederman receives Nobel Prize in 1988 for this work.

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Later data

Later data

  • States seen are the first 3 radial excitations of the vector bb stateΥ(1S),Υ(2S),Υ(3S)

  • Observed width is experimental resoln

  • Quantum numbers JPC=1--

  • b mass ~ 4.6 GeV

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Limitations of technique

Limitations of technique

  • Only muon pairs are recorded!

  • Limited mass resolution

  • Not well suited for fine-grained study

  • No clear signature for separating b-flavored particles (i.e. bq - B mesons) from background

  • Need e+e- experiment to examine in detail

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


First e e facilities

First e+e- facilities

  • At the time of Υ discovery, Cornell was building CESR, a 16 GeV center-of-mass e+e- collider

  • CESR was subsequently redesigned to run in the Υ energy range: 10-11 GeV

  • The CLEO and CUSB detectors started collecting data in 1979

Initial findings

Initial findings

  • B mesons have significant semileptonic branching fractions: BF(BXℓν) ~ 10%

  • B mesons are spin 0

  • B+ and B0 have mB = 5.279 GeV (Δm<1 MeV)

  • B decay dominated by bc transition (|Vcb| >> |Vub|)

  • B mesons have long (~1.5 ps) lifetimes (|Vcb|<<1)

  • FCNC decays not observed (constrain topless models)

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Early discoveries b 0 mixing

Early discoveries – B0 mixing

  • B0 and B0 mix to produce mass eigenstates; Δm~0.5 ps-1. First seen by ARGUS (1987)

  • At Υ(4S), ~1 B0 in 6 decays as B0

  • Confirmed by CLEO in 1988

  • Initial B flavor cannot be determined; need1 B to decay first

Contributions from higher energy e e machines

Contributions from higher energy e+e- machines

  • Full range of b-flavored hadron states produced

  • The PEP (SLAC) and PETRA (DESY) experiments (√s~30 GeV) made early measurements of the average B lifetime

  • LEP experiments and SLD made numerous contributions in Z decays:

    • Precise B lifetimes; lifetime differences

    • Discovery of Bs and Λb

    • Discovery of P-wave B mesons (B**)

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


P wave b discovery

P-wave B** Discovery

  • Resonant structure appears in the unlike-sign B+π±distribution

  • Mass resolution insufficient to separate states

Excess in B+π- combinations

Hadron colliders for b physics

Hadron colliders for b physics

  • Fermilab Tevatron experiments CDF and D0 have made important contributions to

    • Bs decays

    • b-hadron lifetimes

  • Future hadron facilities (LHC-b, B-TeV and, possibly, ATLAS and CMS at LHC) may make a number of important measurements

    • Bs oscillations and CP violation

    • Leptonic and some radiative B decays

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


The b factory era

The B factory era

  • CESR had an impressive history…but new challenges require new facilities

B factories>100 fb-1 / year

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


B factory design goals

B factory design goals

  • Major physics motivation: CP violation in B decays

  • Requires asymmetric beam energies (Odone)

  • Requires high luminosity:

    • KEK-B proposed at KEK; luminosity target 1 ×1034 cm-2 s-1

    • PEP-2 proposed at SLAC; luminosity target 0.3×1034 cm-2 s-1

  • Peak luminosity of 1034 cm-2 s-1 gives integrated luminosity per year of ~ 150 fb-1 or ~2×108 Υ(4S)decays

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


B meson production

B meson production

  • Production in e+e- at Υ(4S) {Z}

    • cross-section ~1.1nb, purity (bb / Σiqiqi) ~ 0.3{7nb, 0.22}

    • simple initial state: BB in p-wave, decay products overlap{b quark hadronizes to B+: B0: Bs: b-baryon ~ 0.4, 0.4, 0.1, 0.1; b and b jets separated}

    • “easy” to trigger, apply kinematic constraints

  • Production at hadron machines (gluon fusion)

    • cross-sections much higher (×104)

    • All b hadrons are produced

    • triggering harder, purity (b / Σiqi) ~ (few/103)

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Y 4s experiments

Y(4S) experiments

  • e+e- → Y(4S) → B+B- or B0B0; roughly 50% each

  • B nearly at rest (βγ ~ 0.06) in 4S frame; no flight info

  • B energy = ½ c.m. energy; valuable constraint, since σE~50 MeV for reconstruction, ~5 MeV for e+e- beams

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Asymmetric b factories

Asymmetric B factories

  • Boost CM along beam (z) axis

  • Separation of B and B decay ~ βγcτB ~ 250 μm

  • Boost imposes asymmetry in detector design

  • Required luminosity is large since CP eigenstates have small product BF to states with clean signatures; e.g. BF(B0J/ψ(ℓ+ℓ-) KS) < 10-4

  • Angular coverage is a compromise between luminosity (quadrupole magnets close to IR) and detector acceptance

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


B decay basics

B decay basics

  • B mesons are the lightest b-flavored particles; they must decay weakly (Δb=1)

  • The 0th order picture is of a free b quark weak decay

  • Putting back the light quark we get the spectator (or external W emission) decays

  • Other decay diagrams are suppressed either by color matching or some power of 1/mB.

Ckm matrix

CKM matrix

  • Kobayashi and Maskawa noted that a 3rd generation results in an irreducible phase in mixing matrix:

  • Observed smallness of off-diagonal terms suggests a parameterization in powers of sinθC

3 x 3 unitary matrix. Only phase differences are physical, → 3 real angles and 1 imaginary phase

Recall

Recall:

  • The b quark decay is simple

  • B meson decay is less so…

Vcb

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


B hadron decay parton model

B hadron decay – parton model

  • Bound b quark is virtual and has some “Fermi momentum”

  • b quark then has pb = pF and Eb = MB - pF, somb =√( MB2 - 2MBpF )

  • Parton model usually assigns pF from a Gaussian with r.m.s. of ~ 0.5 GeV

  • pF ~ 0.5 GeV, corresponds to mb ~ 4.8 GeV gives a reasonable description of some inclusive spectra (e.g. pe)

  • Ad-hoc model; hard to assign uncertainties to predictions

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Beyond parton model

Xhνe

e

Beyond parton model…

B

  • Parton model had some successes, but did not provide quantitative estimates of theoretical uncertainties.

  • How does QCD modify the weak decay of the b quark?

  • QCD becomes non-perturbative at ΛQCD ~ 0.5 GeV but is perturbative for mb: αs(mb)~0.22

  • Modern approaches, based on heavy quark symmetry:

    • use the operator product expansion (OPE) to separate short- and long-distance physics

    • Leads to effective field theories, e.g. HQE, SCET…

    • Used to calculate form factors in lattice QCD

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Lectures on b physics

Heavy Quarks in QCD

  • Heavy Quarks have mQ >> ΛQCD (or Compton wavelength λQ << 1/ΛQCD )

  • Soft gluons (p ~ ΛQCD) cannot probe the quantum numbers of a heavy quark

    → Heavy Quark Symmetry

  • γbinding e- and N in atoms can’t probe nuclear mass, spin… isotopes have similar chemistry!

b

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Heavy quark symmetry

Heavy Quark Symmetry

  • For mQ→∞ the light degrees of freedom (spectator, gluons…) decouple from those of the heavy quark;

    • the light degrees of freedom are invariant under changes to the heavy quark mass, spin and flavour

    • SQ and Jℓ are separately conserved: SQ+Jℓ = J; Jℓ = L+Sℓ

  • The heavy quark (atomic nucleus) acts as a static source of color (electric) charge. Color magnetic effects are relativistic and thus suppressed by 1/mQ

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Lectures on b physics

Heavy Quark symmetry group

  • The heavy quark spin-flavour symmetry forms an SU(2Nh) symmetry group, where Nh is the number of heavy quark flavours.

  • In the SM, t and b are heavy quarks; c is borderline.

  • No hadrons form with t quarks (they decay too rapidly) so in practice only b and c hadrons are of interest in applying heavy quark symmetry

  • This symmetry group forms the basis of an effective theory of QCD: Heavy Quark Effective Theory

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Lectures on b physics

Heavy Quark Effective Theory

  • The heavy quark is almost on-shell: pQ=mQv+k, where k is the residual momentum, kμ << mQ

  • The velocity v is ~ same for heavy quark and hadron

  • The QCD Lagrangian for a heavy quark can be rewritten to emphasize HQ symmetry:

  • H give rise to fluctuations O(2mb); h correspond to light d.o.f.

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Lectures on b physics

HQET Lagrangian

  • The first term is all that remains for mQ→∞; it is clearly invariant under HQ spin-flavour symmetry

  • The terms proportional to 1/mQare

    • the kinetic energy operator OKfor the residual motion of the heavy quark, and

    • the interaction of the heavy quark spin with the color-magnetic field, (operator OG)

  • The associated matrix elements are non-perturbative; however, they are related to measurable quantities

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Lectures on b physics

Non-perturbative parameters

  • The kinetic energy term is parameterized by

    λ1= <B|OK|B>/2mB

  • The spin dependent term is parameterized by

    λ2= -<B|OG|B>/6mB

  • The mass of a heavy meson is given by

    The parameter Λ arises from the light quark degrees of freedom and is defined by Λ = limm→∞(mH– mQ)

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Phenomenological consequences

Phenomenological consequences

The spin-flavour symmetry relates b and c hadrons:

  • SU(3)Flavour breaking:m(Bs) - m(Bd) = Λs – Λd + O(1/mb); 90±3 MeVm(Ds) - m(Dd) = Λs – Λd + O(1/mc); 99±1 MeV

  • Vector-pseudoscalar splittings: (→ λ2 ~0.12 GeV)m2(B*) - m2(B) = 4λ2+O(1/mb); 0.49 GeV2m2(D*) - m2(D) = 4λ2+O(1/mc); 0.55 GeV2

  • baryon-meson splittings:m(Λb) - m(B) - 3λ2/2mB+ O(1/mb2); 312±6 MeVm(Λc) - m(D) - 3λ2/2mD+ O(1/mc2); 320±1 MeV

B

  • HQET simplifies the description of BXceνdecays and allows precise determination of |Vcb|

  • Consider the (“zero recoil”) limit in which vc=vb (i.e. when the leptons take away all the kinetic energy)

    • If SU(2Nh) were exact, the light QCD degrees of freedom wouldn’t know that anything happened

  • For mQ→∞ the form factor can depend only on w=vb·vc (the relativistic boost relating b and c frames)

  • This universal function is known as the Isgur-Wise function, and satisfies ξ(w= 1) = 1.

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Determination of v cb

Determination of |Vcb|

  • The zero-recoil point in BD(*)eνis suppressed by phase space; the rate vanishes at w=1. One must extrapolate from w>1 to w=1.

    includes radiative and HQ symmetry-breaking corrections, and

Luke’s theorem

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Current status of v cb from b d e

Current status of |Vcb| from B→D*eν

  • Measurements of the rate at w=1 are experimentally challenging due to

    • limited statistics: dΓ/dw(w=1) = 0

    • softness of transition π from D*→D

    • extrapolation to w=1

  • Current status (Heavy Flavor Averaging Group):

5% uncertainty

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Tests of hqet

Tests of HQET

  • Predicted relations between form factors can be used to test HQET and explore symmetry-breaking terms

  • The accuracy of tests at present is close to testing the lowest order symmetry-breaking corrections – e.g. the ratio of form factors  / for B→Deν / B→D*eν is

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Lattice qcd for b decay

Lattice QCD for B decay

  • In principle, we can do everything on the lattice

  • In practice, there are problems:

    • Unquenched calculations (i.e. those involving quark loops) only recently feasible

    • b is heavy; lattice spacing a would have to be <1/mb for proper treatment, and this is not yet possible  use HQET ideas here too

    • Extrapolation to real world (a0 and mq0) introduces uncertainties

  • Important for exclusive Blight form factors and B decay constant

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures

B

  • HQET is not helpful in analyzing BXueνdecays in order to extract |Vub|

  • The decays B0→π+ℓ-ν and B→ρℓ-ν have been observed (BF ~ 2×10-4)

  • Lattice calculations of form factor in B→πℓν decay give uncertainties on |Vub| in the 15-20% range for large q2=mB2+mπ2+2mBEπ

  • Other decays tend to be more challenging

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Inclusive semileptonic decays

Inclusive semileptonic decays

  • Inclusive decays  sum over all exclusive channels

  • Complementary to exclusive semileptonic decays for both

    • experiment (only lepton(s) measured), and

    • theory (sum over final states  can ignore hadronization)

  • Starting point is optical theorem which relates Γ(BX) to imaginary part of forward scattering amplitude

  • Applies to both bu and bc semileptonic decays

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Operator product expansion

Operator Product Expansion

  • The heavy particle fields can be integrated out of the full Lagrangian to yield an effective theory with the same low-energy behaviour (e.g. V-A theory)

  • The effective action is non-local; locality is restored in an expansion (OPE) of local operators of increasing dimension ( ~1/[Mheavy]n )

  • The coefficients are modified by perturbative corrections to the short-distance physics

  • An arbitrary scale μ separates short- and long-distance effects; the physics cannot depend on it

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Ope in b decays

OPE in B decays

  • The scale μ separating short/long distance doesn’t matter … except in finite order calculations 

  • typically use ΛQCD << μ ~ mb << MW; αS(mb) ~ 0.22

  • Wilson coefficients Ci(μ) contain weak decay and perturbative QCD processes

  • The matrix elements in the sum are non-perturbative

  • Renormalization group allows summation of terms involving large logs (ln MW/μ) → improved Ci(μ)

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Inclusive decay rates

Inclusive Decay Rates

  • The inclusive decay widths of B hadrons into partially-specified final states (e.g. semileptonic) can be calculated using an OPE based on:

  • HQET - the effects on the b quark of being bound to light d.o.f. can be accounted for in a 1/mb expansion involving familiar non-perturbative matrix elements

  • Parton-hadron duality – the hypothesis that decay widths summed over many final states are insensitive to the properties of individual hadrons and can be calculated at the parton level.

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Parton hadron duality

Parton-Hadron Duality

  • One distinguishes two cases:

  • Global duality – the integration over a large range of invariant hadronic mass provides the smearing, as in e+e-→hadrons and semileptonic HQ decays

  • Local duality – a stronger assumption; the sum over multiple decay channels provides the smearing (e.g. b→sγ vs. B→Xsγ). No good near kinematic boundary.

  • Global duality is on firmer ground, both theoretically and experimentally

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Heavy quark expansion

Heavy Quark Expansion

  • The decay rate into all states with quantum numbers f is

  • Expanding this in αS and 1/mb leads towhere λ1 and λ2 are the HQET kinetic energy and chromomagnetic matrix elements.

  • Note the absence of any 1/mb term!

  • The HQE can be used for both b→u and b→c decays

  • The dependence on mb5must be dealt with; in fact, an ambiguity of order ΛQCDexists in defining mb. Care must be taken to correct all quantities to the same order in αS in the same scheme)

  • The non-perturbative parameters λ1 and λ2 must be measured: λ2~0.12 GeV from B*-B splitting; λ1 from b→sγ, moments in semileptonic decays, …

Spectral moments

Spectral moments

  • OPE calculation is done at the parton level

  • Applying the OPE calculations to real hadrons (duality) requires summing over a “large enough” phase space

  • Low-order spectral moments (integrals over distributions) should be insensitive to duality

  • A complete set of calculations is available for bcℓν mass and lepton energy moments

  • Measurements always need cut on lepton energy

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Cross checks of fit results

Cross-checks of fit results

  • Ee moments calculatedup to αs2β0; MX momentsto αs (higher orders smallcompared with exp error)

  • Separate fits to Ee andMx moments agree well

  • Values for μG2 and ρLS3 are consistent with independent measurements based on mB*-mB and HQ sum rules.

  • Overall power of Ee and MX moments is comparable

Relating v ub to b x u

Relating |Vub| to Γ(BXuℓν)

Moving on to |Vub|…

  • Recall mb5 dependence of total s.l. width

  • The mb appearing in the HQE is the pole mass; it is infrared sensitive (it changes at different orders in PT)

  • mb defined in an appropriate renormalization scheme (there are several) results in faster convergence of OPE

  • Fairly precise relations can then be obtained for |Vub|:

  • The same method (ΓSL) can be used to extract |Vub|.

  • Additional theoretical uncertainties arise due to the restrictive phase space cuts needed to reject the dominant B→Xceν decays

  • Traditional method uses endpoint (>2.3 GeV) of lepton momentum spectrum; recent progress pushes this to 2.0 GeV

Lecture 2: summary

  • Semileptonic decays give crucial information on the CKM elements |Vcb| and |Vub|

  • Heavy Quark Symmetry is the tool used to quantitatively understand these decays

  • Progress in this area involves a vibrant interplay between theory (QCD effective field theories) and experiment; progress is being made in both

  • Radiative decays offer opportunities for seeing new physics, since they are highly suppressed in the SM

B d oscillations

Bd oscillations

  • For B0(bd), ΔΓ/Γ<<1: only O(~1%) of possible decays are to flavour-neutral states (ccdd or uudd); dominant decays are to cudd or cℓνd

  • Consequently, most decay modes correlate with the b quark flavour at decay time. Contrast with K0 system

  • The large top quark mass breaks the GIM cancellation of this FCNC and enhances rate Δm; large τB allows oscillations to compete with decay

Cp violation

CP violation

  • CP violation is one of the requirements for producing a matter-dominated universe (Sakharov)

  • Why isn’t C violation alone enough (C|Y> = |Y>)?...

  • Chirality: if YL behaves identically to YR then CP is a good symmetry. In this case the violation of C does not lead to a matter–antimatter asymmetry.

  • CP violation first observed in K0L decays to the (CP even) ππ final state (1964)

Cp violation in sm

CP violation in SM

  • Mechanism for CP violation in SM: Kobayashi and Maskawa mixing matrix with 1 irreducible phase

  • CP violation is proportional to the area of any unitarity triangle, each of which has area |J|/2, whereJ = Jarlskog invariant = c12c23c213s12s23s13sinδ ~ A2λ6η

  • Jmax is (6√3)-1 ~ 0.1; observed value is ~4·10-5; this is why we say “CP violation in SM is small”

  • Since it depends on a phase, the only observable effects come from interference between amplitudes

Kowalewski --- Perugia lectures


Cp violation in flavour mixing

CP violation in flavour mixing

  • This is the CP violation first observed in nature, namely the decay of KL to ππ, which comes about because of a small CP-even component to the KL wavefunction

  • Caused by interference between ΔΓ and Δm in mixing; very small in B system because ΔΓ<<Δm

  • This type of CP violation is responsible for the small asymmetry in the rates for KL→π+e-νe and KL→π-e+νe

  • Non-perturbative QCD prevents precise predictions for this type of CP violation

Measuring cp violation in b d decays

Measuring CP violation in Bd decays

  • CP violation in Bd decays can be studied at asymmetric e+e- colliders (B factories) with √s=mY(4S)

  • Time integrated CP asymmetry vanishes – measurement of Δt uses boost of CM along beam line and precise position measurements of charged tracks

  • Reconstruction of CP eigenstates requires good momentum and energy resolution and acceptance

  • Determination of flavour at decay time requires the non-CP “tag B” to be partially reconstructed
