An isospin analysis of B → ππ decays yields sin 2α, where α is the usual CKM angle α ≡ arg[−V td V * tb /(V ud V * ub)] without hadronic uncertainty if isospin is a perfect symmetry. Yet isospin symmetry is broken not only by electroweak effects but also by the u and d quark mass difference — the latter drives π 0 − η, η ′ mixing and converts the isospin… CONTINUE READING
