Experimental Tests of Factorization in Charmless Non-Leptonic Two-Body B Decays

  title={Experimental Tests of Factorization in Charmless Non-Leptonic Two-Body B Decays},
  author={Gustav Kramer and Charles Lue},
Using a theoretical framework based on the next-to-leading order QCD-improved effective Hamiltonian and a factorization Ansatz for the hadronic matrix elements of the four-quark operators, we reassess branching fractions in two-body non-leptonic decays B → PP, PV, V V , involving the lowest lying light pseudoscalar (P ) and vector (V ) mesons in the standard model. We work out the parametric dependence of the decay rates making use of the currently available information on the weak mixing… CONTINUE READING
