We suggest to use operator product expansion and QCD sum rule techniques to estimate the long-distance contribution to the amplitude of the exclusive rare decay B → K∗γ. In contrast to a phenomenological description in terms of ψ resonances converting into a photon, the virtual charm quark loop interacting with soft gluons is represented by a new quark-gluon-photon operator. The matrix element of this operator is calculated in the same approximation as the matrix element of the leading magnetic… CONTINUE READING
