Test of lepton universality using B+→K+ℓ+ℓ− decays


LHCb Collaboration; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkamp, O; Straumann, U; Serra, N; Vollhardt, A; et al (2014). Test of lepton universality using B+→K+ℓ+ℓ− decays. Physical Review Letters, 113(151601):online.

Abstract

A measurement of the ratio of the branching fractions of the B+→K+μ+μ− and B+→K+e+e− decays is presented using proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb−1, recorded with the LHCb experiment at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The value of the ratio of branching fractions for the dilepton invariant mass squared range 1<q2<6GeV2/c4 is measured to be 0.745+0.090−0.074(stat)±0.036(syst). This value is the most precise measurement of the ratio of branching fractions to date and is compatible with the SM prediction within 2.6 standard deviations.
