Heavy-quark opportunities and challenges at FCC-ee

  title={Heavy-quark opportunities and challenges at FCC-ee},
  author={St'ephane Monteil and G. R. Wilkinson},
The abundant production of beauty and charm hadrons in the 5 × 10 Z decays expected at FCC-ee offers outstanding opportunities in flavour physics that in general exceed those available at Belle II, and are complementary to the heavy-flavour programme of the LHC. A wide range of measurements will be possible in heavy-flavour spectroscopy, rare decays of heavy-flavoured particles and CP -violation studies, which will benefit from the low-background experimental environment, the high Lorentz boost… Expand

Hunt for rare processes and long-lived particles at FCC-ee
In this essay we discuss the possibilities and associated challenges concerning beyond the Standard Model searches at FCC-ee, such as rare decays of heavy-flavoured particles and long-livedExpand


Opportunities in Flavour Physics at the HL-LHC and HE-LHC
Motivated by the success of the flavour physics programme carried out over the last decade at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), we characterize in detail the physics potential of its High-LuminosityExpand
Prospects for B + c → τ + ν τ at FCC-ee
This paper presents the prospects for a precise measurement of the branching fraction of the leptonic B+ c → τντ decay at the Future Circular Collider (FCC-ee) running at the Z-pole. A detailedExpand
FCC Physics Opportunities
We review the physics opportunities of the Future Circular Collider, covering its e+e-, pp, ep and heavy ion programmes. We describe the measurement capabilities of each FCC component, addressing theExpand
Physics case for an LHCb Upgrade II - Opportunities in flavour physics, and beyond, in the HL-LHC era
The LHCb Upgrade II will fully exploit the flavour-physics opportunities of the HL-LHC, and study additional physics topics that take advantage of the forward acceptance of the LHCb spectrometer. TheExpand
Low-energy signatures of the PS3 model: from B-physics anomalies to LFV
A bstractThe three-site Pati-Salam gauge model provides a consistent description for the hints of lepton-flavor non-universality observed in B decays, connecting the present pattern of “anomalies” toExpand
Clues for flavor from rare lepton and quark decays
A bstractFlavor symmetries successfully explain lepton and quark masses and mixings yet it is usually hard to distinguish different models that predict the same mixing angles. Further experimentalExpand
The Belle II Physics Book
We present the physics program of the Belle II experiment, located on the intensity frontier SuperKEKB e+e- collider. Belle II collected its first collisions in 2018, and is expected to operate forExpand
A method to determine |Vcb| at the weak scale in top decays at the LHC
A bstractUntil now, the Cabibbo Kobayashi Maskawa matrix element, |Vcb|, has always been measured in B decays, i.e. at an energy scale qb∼mb2$$ {q}_b\sim \frac{m_b}{2} $$, far below the weak scale.Expand
Lepton polarization asymmetries in rare semi-tauonic $$ b \rightarrow s $$b→s exclusive decays at FCC-ee
We consider measurements of exclusive rare semi-tauonic b-hadron decays, mediated by the $$b \rightarrow s \tau ^+ \tau ^-$$b→sτ+τ- transition, at a future high-energy circular electron–positronExpand
Power-enhanced leading-logarithmic QED corrections to Bq→ μ+μ−
