Differential branching fraction and angular analysis of the B+→K+μ+μ− decay


LHCb Collaboration; et al; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkamp, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A (2013). Differential branching fraction and angular analysis of the B+→K+μ+μ− decay. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2013:105.

Abstract

The angular distribution and differential branching fraction of the decay B +→ K + μ + μ − are studied with a dataset corresponding to 1.0fb−1 of integrated luminosity, collected by the LHCb experiment. The angular distribution is measured in bins of dimuon invariant mass squared and found to be consistent with Standard Model expectations. Integrating the differential branching fraction over the full dimuon invariant mass range yields a total branching fraction of B (B + → K + μ + μ −) = (4.36 ± 0.15 ± 0.18) × 10−7. These measurements are the most precise to date of the B + → K + μ + μ − decay.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
