Nonleptonic Charm Decays and CP Violation

  title={Nonleptonic Charm Decays and CP Violation},
  author={Bhubanjyoti Bhattacharya and Michael Gronau and Jonathan L Rosner},
  journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology},
In this talk we briefly present a flavor-SU(3) technique to study branching ratios and direct CP asymmetries $D$-meson decays. The first part of the talk is meant to set up a foundation, based on previous work, to deal with flavor-SU(3) amplitudes and relative strong phases. In addition, we present a model for dealing with SU(3)-breaking in branching ratio measurements of SCS $D^0$ decays. In the second part of the talk we make use of a proposal for an enhanced CP-violating penguin in the SM…

Direct CP Violation in Nonleptonic Charm Decays

LHCb, CDF and most recently Belle have observed a large difference between direct CP asymmetries in $D^0\to K^+K^-$ and $D^0\to\pi^+\pi^-$. We use the measured value of $\Delta A_{CP}$ to constrain

Shift in weak phase γ due to CP asymmetries in D decays to two pseudoscalar mesons

A difference of several tenths of a percent has been observed between the direct CP asymmetries of $D^0\to K^+K^-$ and $D^0\to \pi^+\pi^-$. It has been noted recently that CP asymmetries in such

Sum Rules of Charm CP Asymmetries beyond the SU(3)_{F} Limit.

New sum rules are found between direct CP asymmetries in D meson decays with coefficients that can be determined from a global fit to branching ratio data and consistently include first-order SU(3)_{F} breaking in the topological amplitudes extracted from the branching ratios.

Flavor SU(3) in Cabibbo-favored D-meson decays

Abstract Model-independent description of nonleptonic decays of charmed mesons is a challenging task due to large nonperturbative effects of strong interactions on the transition amplitudes. We

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 for



Direct CP Violation in D -> hh Decays

Evidence of CP violation in the charm sector has been observed recently by the LHCb and CDF Collaborations. The issue of whether it can be accommodated within the standard model (SM) is examined in

Direct CP Violation in D Decays in view of LHCb and CDF Results

The LHCb and CDF Collaborations have recently reported evidence for a CP asymmetry around -0.7% in $\Delta A_{CP}$, the difference between $A_{CP}(D^0 \to K^+ K^-)$ and $A_{CP}(D^0 \to \pi^+\pi^-)$.

Two-body hadronic charmed meson decays

In this work we study the two-body hadronic charmed meson decays, including both the $PP$ and $VP$ modes. The latest experimental data are first analyzed in the diagrammatic approach. The magnitudes

Size of direct CP violation in singly Cabibbo-suppressed D decays

The first experimental evidence for direct CP violation in charm-quark decays has recently been presented by the LHCb collaboration in the difference between the D -> K+ K- and D -> pi+ pi-

Direct CP violation in two-body hadronic charmed meson decays

Motivated by the recent observation of $CP$ violation in the charm sector by LHCb, we study direct $CP$ asymmetries in the standard model (SM) for the singly Cabibbo-suppressed two-body hadronic

SU(3) symmetry breaking and CP violation in D -> PP decays

Evidence of CP violation in the charm sector has been observed recently by the LHCb and CDF Collaborations. Adopting the topological diagram approach, we study flavor SU(3) symmetry breaking effects

On CP asymmetries in two-, three- and four-body D decays

A bstractIndirect and direct CP violations have been established in KL and Bd decays. They have been found in two-body decay channels — with the exception of KL → π+π−e+e− transitions. Evidence for

Relating direct CP violation in D decays and the forward-backward asymmetry in tt[over ¯] production.

It is shown that a minimal model, with an extra scalar doublet, previously suggested to explain the top data, gives a contribution to CP violation in charm decays that is of the right size.
