  title={Two body B decays with isosinglet final states in SCET},
  author={Alexander R. Williamson and Jure Zupan},
Expressions for decay amplitudes of B0, B- and Bs mesons to two light pseudoscalar or vector mesons, including isosinglet mesons eta, eta', omega, phi, are obtained using Soft Collinear Effective Theory at LO in 1/mb. These are then used to predict unmeasured branching ratios, direct and indirect CP asymmetries in B0, B- and Bs decays into two light pseudoscalars, following a determination of nonperturbative SCET parameters from existing data using a chi-squared fit. A separate discussion of… Expand
Model-independent approaches to QCD and B decays
We investigate theoretical expectations for B-meson decay rates in the Standard Model. Strong-interaction effects described by quantum chromodynamics (QCD) make this a challenging endeavor. ExactExpand
Three-body non-leptonic B decays and QCD factorization
Abstract We extend the framework of QCD factorization to non-leptonic B decays into three light mesons, taking as an example the decay B + → π + π + π − . We discuss the factorization properties ofExpand
Search for CP violation and new physics in rare B decays at the B factories
We summarize recent results by the BABAR and Belle Collaborations on the search for CP violation and new physics beyond the Standard Model in several rare B meson decays. The measurements exploit theExpand
DirectCPviolation in beauty and charm hadron decays
Since the discovery of CP violation more than 5 decades ago, this phenomenon is still attracting a lot of interest. Among the many fascinating aspects of this subject, this review is dedicated toExpand
Heavy flavor and dark sector
We consider some contributions to rare processes in B meson decays from a Dark Sector containing 2 light unstable scalars, with large couplings to each other and small mixings with Standard ModelExpand
Footprints of the Beyond in flavor physics: Possible role of the Top Two Higgs Doublet Model
The B-factories results provide an impressive confirmation of the Standard Model (SM) description of flavor and CP violation. Nevertheless, as more data were accumulated, deviations in the 2.5-3.5 σExpand
Observation of the B-s(0) -> eta 'eta ' Decay
The first observation of the B-s(0) -> eta'eta' decay is reported. The study is based on a sample of proton-proton collisions corresponding to 3.0 fb(-1) of integrated luminosity collected with theExpand
Introduction to Soft-Collinear Effective Theory
Among resummation techniques for perturbative QCD in the context of collider and flavor physics, soft-collinear effective theory (SCET) has emerged as both a powerful and versatile tool, having beenExpand
