The BABAR physics book: Physics at an asymmetric $B$ factory
Results of a year-long workshop devoted to a review of the physics opportunities of the BABAR experiment at the PEP-II B Factory, at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center laboratory are presented.
In pursuit of new physics withBsdecays
The presence of a sizeable CP-violating phase in B_s^0-B_s^0-bar mixing would be an unambiguous signal of physics beyond the Standard Model. We analyse various possibilities to detect such a new
A general analysis of
We present a general parametrization of $B^\pm\to\pi^\pm K, \pi^0K^\pm$ and $B_d\to\pi^0 K, \pi^\mp K^\pm$ decays, taking into account both electroweak penguin and rescattering effects. This
The CKM Matrix and the Unitarity Triangle
This report contains the results of the Workshop on the CKM Unitarity Triangle that was held at CERN on 13-16 February 2002. There had been several Workshops on B physics that concentrated on studies
Quark Mixing, CP Violation and Rare Decays After the Top Quark Discovery
We review the highlights of quark mixing, particle-antiparticle mixing, CP violation and rare K- and B-decays in the Standard Model. The top quark discovery, the precise measurement of its mass, the
Implications of LHCb measurements and future prospects
During 2011 the LHCb experiment at CERN collected 1.0 fb−1 of $\sqrt{s} = 7\mbox{~TeV}$pp collisions. Due to the large heavy quark production cross-sections, these data provide unprecedented samples
Extracting CKM phases from angular distributions of B(d,s) decays into admixtures of CP eigenstates
The time-dependent angular distributions of certain Bd,s decays into final states that are admixtures of CP-even and CP-odd configurations provide valuable information about CKM phases and hadronic
SuperB: A High-Luminosity Asymmetric e+ e- Super Flavor Factory. Conceptual Design Report
The physics objectives of SuperB, an asymmetric electron-positron collider with a luminosity above 10^36/cm^2/s are described, together with the conceptual design of a novel low emittance design that
Search for Grand-Unified-Theory Magnetic Monopoles at a Flux Level below the Parker Limit
We report the results of the first direct search for grand-unified-theory magnetic monopoles with adequate sensitivity to detect a flux as small as the Parker flux limit. If stable monopole-nucleus
