Hadronic Charmless B Decays at the SLD

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Rare decays of beauty particles were studied in several two-body exclusive hadronic charmless modes using the 19.4 pb<sup>-1</sup> Z-pole data collected with the SLD detector at SLAC from 1993 to 1998. These decays are mediated by both tree level b {yields} u and one-loop penguin b {yields} s, d transitions. Upper limits for the branching ratios are set for the investigated modes B<sub>s</sub>, B<sub>0</sub> {yields} P<sup>+</sup>P<sup>-</sup>, B<sup>+</sup> {yields} V P<sup>+</sup> and B<sub>s</sub>, B<sup>0</sup> {yields} V V , where the pseudoscalar particle P<sup>+</sup> is either {pi}<sup>+</sup> or K<sup>+</sup> and the vector particle V is either {rho}<sup>0</sup>, K<sup>* 0</sup> or {phi}.

Using an event selection algorithm consisting of a set of hard cuts combined with a set of discriminator functions, the efficiencies range between 24% and 37% with near zero background.
