Hadronic Bc decays as a test of Bc cross section

Study of Bc meson is important because it stands out of the crowd of other heavy-quark mesons. This is the only meson consisting of two different heavy quarks. Also, the lighter c quark has a decay rate ( 65%) [1] larger than heavier b quark, which is uncommon for heavy-quark mesons. The mass and lifetime of Bc meson have been measured by CDF [2,3] and D0… CONTINUE READING
