We extend our recent work and study implications of the standard model with four generations (SM4) for rare B and K decays. We again take seriously the several 2-3{sigma} anomalies seen in B, B{sub s} decays and interpret them in the context of this simple extension of the SM. SM4 is also of course of considerable interest for its potential relevance to dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking and to baryogenesis. Using experimental information from processes such as B{yields}X{sub s}{gamma}, B… Expand
Less space for a new family of fermions
We investigate the experimentally allowed parameter space of an extension of the standard model (SM3) by one additional family of fermions. Therefore we extend our previous study of theExpand
Patterns of flavour violation in the presence of a fourth generation of quarks and leptons
We calculate a number of observables related to particle-antiparticle mixing and the branching ratios for the most interesting rare and CP-violating K and B decays in the Standard Model (SM3)Expand
Like-sign dimuon charge asymmetry in the Randall-Sundrum model
We confirm that in order to account for the recent D0 result of large like-sign dimuon charge asymmetry, a considerable large new physics effect in {Gamma}{sub 12}{sup s} is required in addition to aExpand

The generalization of the MSSM to the case of four chiral fermion generations (4GMSSM) can lead to significant changes in the phenomenology of the otherwise familiar Higgs sector. In most of theExpand
