We present the most general (six-helicity) angular analysis of Bs -> V_1 (-> P_1P'_1) V_2 (-> P_2P'_2) (V_i is a vector meson, and P_i, P'_i are pseudoscalars). We focus on final states accessible to both Bs and Bsbar -- these are mainly bbar -> sbar penguin decays. We also derive the most general decay amplitude, and discuss the differences between it and that used by LHCb in its analysis of Bs -> phi phi. In the standard model, all CP violation is predicted to be small, so that the simple…

New physics in b̄→s̄ transitions and the B d,s 0 →V 1 V 2 angular analysis

We suppose that there is new physics (NP) in b -> s transitions, and examine its effect on the angular distribution of B_q^0 -> V_1 V_2 (q=d,s), where V_{1,2} are vector mesons. We find that, in the

New physics in B0s → J/ψϕ: a general analysis

Recently, the CDF and D0 collaborations measured indirect CP violation in B0s → J/ψϕ and found a hint of a signal. If taken at face value, this can be interpreted as a nonzero phase of $$ B_s^0 -
