    CP violation in K and B decays is reviewed in the Standard Model (SM) and beyond the SM. In K decays, one is seeking first evidence for CP violation in direct $K\\to \\pi\\pi$ decays. This would not give a precise quantitative test for the present explanation of CP violation in terms of a phase in the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa (CKM) matrix. Such tests are provided by a variety of CP asymmetries in neutral and charged B decays. Certain features, characterizing CP violation beyond the standard model, are outlined in the B meson system.

    Recent results on CP-violation measurements in decays from energy asymmetric -factory experiments are reported. Thanks to large accumulated data samples, CP-violations in decays in mixing-decay interference and direct CP-violation are now firmly established. The measurements of three angles of the unitarity triangle from CP-violations of decays are quite consistent with the Standard Model expectations. These results strongly support the validity of the Kobayashi-Maskawa prescription of CP-violation.

    CP violation is observed to date only in K^0 decays and is parameterizable by a single quantity epsilon. Because it is one of the least understood phenomena in the Standard Model and holds a clue to baryogenesis, it must be investigated further. Highly specialized searches in K^0 decays are possible. Effects in B decays are much larger. In addition to the traditional B_d -> J/\\psi K_S, pi^+pi^- asymmetries, CP violation could be searched for in already existing inclusive B data samples.

    CP violation is observed to date only in K{sup 0} decays and is parameterizable by a single quantity {epsilon}. Because it is one of the least understood phenomena in the Standard Model and holds a clue to baryogenesis, it must be investigated further. Highly specialized searches in K{sup 0} decays are possible. Effects in B decays are much larger. In addition to the traditional B{sub d} {yields} J/{psi}K{sub S}, {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup {minus}} asymmetries, CP violation could be searched for in already existing inclusive B data samples. The rapid B{sub s}--{anti B}{sub s} oscillations cancel in untagged B{sub s} data samples, which therefore allow feasibility studies for the observation of CP violation and the extraction of CKM elements with present vertex detectors. The favored method for the extraction of the CKM angle {gamma} is shown to be unfeasible and a solution is presented involving striking direct CP violation in charged B decays. Novel methods for determining the B{sub s} mixing parameter {Delta}m are described without the traditional requirement of flavor-specific final states.

    Searches for CP violating effects in atoms and molecules provide important constrains on competing extensions to the standard model of elementary particles. In particular, CP violation in an atom leads to the CP-odd (T,P-odd) polarizability $\\beta^\\mathrm{CP}$: a magnetic moment $\\mu^\\mathrm{CP}$ is induced by an electric field $\\mathcal{E}_0$ applied to an atom, $\\mu^\\mathrm{CP} = \\beta^\\mathrm{CP} \\mathcal{E}_0 $.

  12. Status in CP violation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Twenty-five years after the discovery of CP violation in the neutral Kaon system, we still dont know exactly the origin and the components of that weak non invariance. The two more precise experiments give slightly different answers concerning the direct way of CP violation NA 31 gives ε prime/ε incompatible with the Superweak Model (for which ε prime=0) and in agreement with Standard Model predictions compatible with both. Again, one needs new and precise results in order to conclude about ε prime. E731 and NA31 are actually working on their new data samples. Longer term ideas are also being discussed, looking for new experiments able to give ε prime/ε with a precision. Concerning CPT invariance the situation seems to be more clear

    The study of $CP$ violation in the beauty hadron sector is a promising approach to search for the effects of physics beyond the Standard Model. Several recent measurements in this area from the LHCb experiment are reported in these proceedings. These are based on the Run-I dataset of 3~fb$^{-1}$ of data collected at proton-proton centre of mass energies of 7 and 8~TeV.

    2016-01-01

    We study an extension of the Standard Model (SM) in which two copies of the SM scalar $SU(2)$ doublet which do not acquire a Vacuum Expectation Value (VEV), and hence are \\textit{inert}, are added to the scalar sector. We allow for CP-violation in the \\textit{inert} sector, where the lightest \\textit{inert} state is protected from decaying to SM particles through the conservation of a $Z_2$ symmetry. The lightest neutral particle from the \\textit{inert} sector, which has a mixed CP-charge due to CP-violation, is hence a Dark Matter (DM) candidate. We discuss the new regions of DM relic density opened up by CP-violation, and compare our results to the CP-conserving limit and the Inert Doublet Model (IDM). We constrain the parameter space of the CP-violating model using recent results from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and DM direct and indirect detection experiments.

We estimate the CP-violating polarizability for rare-gas (diamagnetic) atoms He through Rn.

The analysis is carried out using the third-order perturbation theory and the Dirac-Hartree-Fock formalism. We find that, as a function of nuclear charge Z, betaCP scales steeply as Z^5 R(Z), where slowly-varying R(Z) is a relativistic enhancement factor.

  16. Atomic CP-violating polarizability

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Searches for CP-violating effects in atoms and molecules provide important constrains on competing extensions to the standard model of elementary particles. In particular, CP violation in an atom leads to the CP-odd (T,P-odd) polarizability βCP: a magnetic moment μCP is induced by an electric field E0 applied to an atom, μCP=βCPE0. We estimate the CP-violating polarizability for rare-gas (diamagnetic) atoms He through Rn. We relate βCP to the permanent electric dipole moment (EDM) of the electron and to the scalar constant of the CP-odd electron-nucleus interaction. The analysis is carried out using the third-order perturbation theory and the Dirac-Hartree-Fock formalism. We find that, as a function of nuclear charge Z, βCP scales steeply as Z5R(Z), where slowly varying R(Z) is a relativistic enhancement factor. Finally, we evaluate the feasibility of setting a limit on electron EDM by measuring CP-violating magnetization of liquid Xe. We find that such an experiment could provide competitive bounds on electron EDM only if the present level of experimental sensitivity to ultraweak magnetic fields [Kominis et al., Nature 422, 596 (2003)] is improved by several orders of magnitude

    We find that the peculiar CP conserving phases in the unparticle propagators can play very important roles on CP violation. In particular, we study the phase effects on the direct CP asymmetries in $B_{d}\\to \\pi^{-}\\pi^{+}$ and $B_{d}\\to \\ell^{-}\\ell^{+}$ decays. We show that the large measured ${\\cal A}_{CP}(B_d\\to \\pi^{-} \\pi^{+})\\sim 50%$ and a sizable ${\\cal A}_{CP}(B_d\\to \\ell^{-} \\ell^{+})\\sim 15%$ can be achieved.

  18. CP violation with beautiful baryons

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Dunietz, I. (European Organization for Nuclear Research, Geneva (Switzerland). Theory Div.)

    1992-10-01

    CP violation can be studied in modes of charmed or bottom baryons when a decay process is compared with its charge-conjugated partner. It can show up as a rate asymmetry and in a study of other decay parameters. Neither tagging nor time-dependences are required to observe CP violation with modes of baryons, in contrast to the conventional B{sup 0} modes. Numerous modes of bottom baryons have the potential to show large CP-violating effects within the Standard Model. Those effects can be substantial for modes with a D{sup 0}, which is seen in a final state that can also be fed from {anti D}{sup 0}. For instance, a comparison of the {Lambda}{sub b}{yields}{Lambda}D{sub CP}{sup 0} with the anti {Lambda}{sub b}{yields} anti {Lambda}D{sub CP}{sup 0} process can show sizeable CP violation. Here D{sub CP}{sup 0} denotes CP eigenstates of D{sup 0}, which occur at a few percent. Six related processes, such as {Lambda}{sub b}{yields}{Lambda}D{sup 0}, {Lambda}{sub b}{yields}{Lambda}{anti D}{sup 0}, {Lambda}{sub b}{yields}{Lambda}D{sub CP}{sup 0}, and their charge-conjugated counterparts, can extract {phi}, which is the most problematic angle of the unitarity triangle and which is conventionally probed with the B{sub s}{yields}{rho}{sup 0} K{sub S} asymmetry. Here D{sup 0} and anti D{sup 0} are identified by their charged kaon or lepton.

    An introductory overview of the Standard Model description of flavour is presented. The main emphasis is put on present tests of the quark-mixing matrix structure and the phenomenological determination of its parameters. Special attention is given to the experimental evidences of CP violation and their important role in our understanding of flavour dynamics.

  20. CP Violation and B Physics

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    These lectures provide a basic overview of topics related to the study of CP Violation in B decays. In the first lecture, I review the basics of discrete symmetries in field theories, the quantum mechanics of neutral but flavor-non-trivial mesons, and the classification of three types of CP violation [1]. The actual second lecture which I gave will be separately published as it is my Dirac award lecture and is focused on the separate topic of strong CP Violation. In Lecture 2 here, I cover the Standard Model predictions for neutral B decays, and in particular discuss some channels of interest for CP Violation studies. Lecture 3 reviews the various tools and techniques used to deal with the hadronic physics effects. In Lecture 4, I briefly review the present and planned experiments that can study B decays. I cannot teach all the details of this subject in this short course, so my approach is instead to try to give students a grasp of the relevant concepts and an overview of the available tools. The level of these lectures is introductory. I will provide some references to more detailed treatments and current literature, but this is not a review article so I do not attempt to give complete references to all related literature. By now there are some excellent textbooks that cover this subject in great detail [1]. I refer students to these for more details and for more complete references to the original literature

    We explain the many reasons for the interest in flavor physics. We describe flavor physics and the related CP violation within the Standard Model, and explain how the B-factories proved that the Kobayashi-Maskawa mechanism dominates the CP violation that is observed in meson decays. We explain the implications of flavor physics for new physics, with emphasis on the “new physics flavor puzzle”, and present the idea of minimal flavor violation as a possible solution. We explain why the values flavor parameters of the Standard Model are puzzling, present the Froggatt-Nielsen mechanism as a possible solution, and describe how measurements of neutrino parameters are interpreted in the context of this puzzle. We show that the recently discovered Higgs-like boson may provide new opportunities for making progress on the various flavor puzzles.

    2010-05-01

    It is well known that the study of flavour physics and CP violation is very important to critically test the Standard Model and to look for possible signature of new physics beyond it. The observation of CP violation in kaon system in 1964 has ignited a lot of experimental and theoretical efforts to understand its origin and to look for CP violation effects in other systems besides the neutral kaons. The two -factories BABAR and BELLE, along with other experiments, in the last decade or so made studies in flavour physics and CP violation a very interesting one. In this article we discuss the status and prospectives of the flavour physics associated with the strange, charm and bottom sectors of the Standard Model. The important results in kaon sector will be briefly discussed. Recently, mixing in the charm system has been observed, which was being pursued for quite some time without any success. The smallness of the mixing parameters in the charm system is due to the hierarchical structure of the CKM matrix. Interestingly, so far we have not found CP violation in the charm system but in the future, with more dedicated experiments at charm threshold, the situation could change. Many interesting observations have been made in the case of bottom mesons and some of them show some kind of deviations from that of the Standard Model expectations which are mainly associated with the → flavour changing neutral current transitions. It is long believed that the system could be the harbinger of new physics since it is a system in which both bottom and strange quarks are the constituents. Recently, D0 and CDF announced their result for the mixing which is claimed to be the first possible new physics signature in the flavour sector. We plan to touch upon all important issues pointing out both theoretical and experimental developments and future prospects in this review article.

  5. CP violation and flavor mixing

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The development of the studies of CP violation and the quark and lepton flavors are reviewed based on the author's personal career. He started studying physics at Nagoya University before quark model came into the world. He entered the graduate program and the belonged to theoretical particle physics group led by Professor S. Sakata. In 1956, Sakata model was proposed on three baryons, n, p and lambda, which was eventually replaced by the quark model, but the root of the idea of the fundamental triplet was in Sakata model. Activities of Sakata group including proposal of Nagoya model, its further developments and the formulation of lepton flavor mixing are described based on his experience as a graduate student. After leaving Nagoya, he started to work on CP violation problem in Kyoto. The theoretical process they followed to explain CP violation and finally to propose the six-quark model in 1973 is described. Following their proposal, J/φ, τ-lepton, γ (bound state of quark b and anti-b) and quark t were discovered in '74, '75, '77 and '95', respectively. The large CP asymmetry in B-meson system expected from their theory was verified with electron positron collision experiments at B factories, KEKB of KEK and PEPII of SLAC. Measuring method and results of B factories are illustrated. Finally the lepton flavor mixing observed by K2K experiment with Super Kamiokande and reactor neutrinos with KamLAND, which are clearly showing the oscillating behavior, is described. (S. Funahashi)

    This is a written version of a series of lectures aimed at graduate students in particle theory/string theory/particle experiment familiar with the basics of the Standard Model. We explain the many reasons for the interest in flavour physics. We describe flavour physics and the related CP violation within the Standard Model, and explain how the B-factories proved that the Kobayashi- Maskawa mechanism dominates the CP violation that is observed in meson decays. We explain the implications of flavour physics for new physics. We emphasize the “new physics flavour puzzle”. As an explicit example, we explain how the recent measurements ofD0−D 0 mixing constrain the supersymmetric flavour structure. We explain how the ATLAS and CMS experiments can solve the new physics flavour puzzle and perhaps shed light on the standard model flavour puzzle. Finally, we describe various interpretations of the neutrino flavour data and their impact on flavour models.

    The phenomenon of CP violation is crucial to understand the asymmetry between matter and antimatter that exists in the Universe. Dramatic experimental progress has been made, in particular in measurements of the behaviour of particles containing the b quark, where CP violation effects are predicted by the Kobayashi-Maskawa mechanism that is embedded in the Standard Model. The status of these measurements and future prospects for an understanding of CP violation beyond the Standard Model are reviewed.

    2016-01-01

    We suggest a specific semiclassical background field, the so called pure gauge sphaleron explosion, to evaluate the magnitude of the CP violation stemming from the standard phase of the CKM matrix. We use it to evaluate the matrix elements of some next-to-leading order effective CP-violating operators suggested in the literature. We also derive the scale dependence of the corresponding coefficients. Finally, we discuss the expected magnitude of the CP violation in the cold electroweak scenario.

    2004-01-01

    We show that the asymmetrical dynamical evolution of fields in the early Universe provides a new source for CP violation. This can lead to baryogenesis without any additional CP-violating interactions. The magnitude of this CP violation is time-dependent. In particular, it vanishes (or is very small) in the late Universe after the fields have relaxed (or are in their final approach) to their vacuum values. We provide an explicit example in which our mechanism is realized.

  11. CP Violation in the scalar sector

    CERN Document Server

    Emmanuel-Costa, D; Osland, P; Rebelo, M N

    2016-01-01

    Models with an extended scalar sector may in principle provide new sources of CP violation originating in the scalar potential. One of the simplest ways to implement this idea is to have CP violation in a two-Higgs-doublet model. Here, it leads to CP violation in trilinear weak gauge boson couplings. We discuss how these couplings are becoming constrained in the alignment limit. In a model with three Higgs doublets, subject to an $S_3$ symmetry, several complex vacua are possible. Some of these, but not all, may lead to spontaneous CP violation.

    It is shown that Randall–Sundrum model has the EDM term which violates the CP-symmetry. The comparison with the case of Kaluza–Klein theory is done. The chiral property, localization, anomaly phenomena are examined. We evaluate the bulk quantum effect using the method of the induced effective action. This is a new origin of the CP-violation.

  14. Where is the origin of CP violations

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    If experimentally b→c is more suppressed than b→u, the Kobayashi-Maskawa mechanism of CP violation may not work. In the SU(2)xU(1)xS3 model, which gives all elements of the KM matrix naturally by the quark masses, this is the case and CP violations originate mainly from the Yukawa sector. (Auth.)

    The phenomenology of 3-neutrino mixing, the current status of our knowledge about the 3-neutrino mixing parameters, including the absolute neutrino mass scale, and of the Dirac and Majorana CP violation in the lepton sector are reviewed. The problems of CP violation in neutrino oscillations and of determining the nature - Dirac or Majorana - of massive neutrinos are discussed. The seesaw mechanism of neutrino mass generation and the related leptogenesis scenario of generation of the baryon asymmetry of the Universe are considered. The results showing that the CP violation necessary for the generation of the baryon asymmetry of the Universe in leptogenesis can be due exclusively to the Dirac and/or Majorana CP-violating phase(s) in the neutrino mixing matrix U are briefly reviewed. The discrete symmetry approach to understanding the observed pattern of neutrino mixing and the related predictions for the leptonic Dirac CP violation are also reviewed.

    We show that the quark flavour structure and CP violating phenomena are strongly correlated in supersymmetric theories. For a generic pattern of supersymmetry breaking the two broad categories of Yukawa couplings, democratic and hierarchical textures, have entirely different phenomenological implications. With hierarchical Yukawas, the rephasing invariant phase, arg(VusVcbVcb∗Vcs∗), in the CKM mixing matrix has to be of order unity, while the SUSY CP violating phases are severely constrained by electric dipole moments, giving rise to the so-called SUSY CP problem. With democratic Yukawas, all experimental CP results can be accommodated with small values for the CKM and SUSY CP violating phases (i.e., CP can be considered as an approximate symmetry at the high energy scale). We also show that within this scenario, an entirely real CKM matrix in supersymmetric models is still allowed by the present experimental results.

    Deppisch, Frank F

    2010-01-01

    We study CP asymmetries in two-body decays of bottom squarks into charginos and tops. These asymmetries probe the SUSY CP phases of the sbottom and the chargino sector in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. We identify the MSSM parameter space where the CP asymmetries are sizeable, and analyze the feasibility of their observation at the LHC. As a result, potentially detectable CP asymmetries in sbottom decays are found, which motivates further detailed experimental studies for probing the SUSY CP phases.

  1. Exploring CP violation in the MSSM

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We explore the prospects for observing CP violation in the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM) with six CP-violating parameters, three gaugino mass phases and three phases in trilinear soft supersymmetry-breaking parameters, using the CPsuperH code combined with a geometric approach to maximise CP-violating observables subject to the experimental upper bounds on electric dipole moments. We also implement CP-conserving constraints from Higgs physics, flavour physics and the upper limits on the cosmological dark matter density and spin-independent scattering. We study possible values of observables within the constrained MSSM (CMSSM), the non-universal Higgs model (NUHM), the CPX scenario and a variant of the phenomenological MSSM (pMSSM). We find values of the CP-violating asymmetry ACP in b → sγ decay that may be as large as 3 %, so future measurements of ACP may provide independent information about CP violation in the MSSM. We find that CP-violating MSSM contributions to the Bs meson mass mixing term ΔMBs are in general below the present upper limit, which is dominated by theoretical uncertainties. If these could be reduced, ΔMBs could also provide an interesting and complementary constraint on the six CP-violating MSSM phases, enabling them all to be determined experimentally, in principle. We also find that CP violation in the h2,3τ+ - and h2,3 anti tt couplings can be quite large, and so may offer interesting prospects for future pp, e+e-, μ+μ- and γγ colliders. (orig.)

    Benson, Sean

    2016-01-01

    Latest LHCb measurements of $CP$ violation in b-hadrons are presented based on $pp$ collision data collected in 2011 and 2012 at centre-of-mass energies of $\\sqrt{s}=7$ $\\rm TeV$ and $8\\ \\rm TeV$ respectively. The total integrated luminosity collected is 3.0 fb$^{-1}$. Results include recent measurements of $CP$ violation in $B_d$ and $B_s$ mixing, along with those of quantifying the effects of $b\\to c\\bar{c} s$ loop pollution. Standard Model $CP$ violation tests in loop transitions are discussed with results consistent with expectations. New decays of b-baryons are presented and preliminary studies of $CP$ violation are performed.

  3. Nonlocality and gravity-induced CP violation

    CERN Document Server

    Ahluwalia, D V

    1998-01-01

    We consider a space-time dependent relative phase between the right- and left-handed spinors and show that it results in a violation of locality in the presence of gravity once the demand of parity covariance is dropped. This violation of locality is such that it readily interprets itself as a gravity-induced CP violation, and at the same time confirms an earlier remark by Wigner that a representation space carries more information than a wave equation. This happens, as Kirchbach has noted, because while the dimensionality of an irreducible representation space does not depend upon the concrete realization of the symmetry generators, Noether currents (Dirac, versus Majorana, versus the CP violating construct presented here) do. The gravity-induced CP violation provides a dynamical reason on how a neutron star carrying its baryon and lepton numbers can collapse into a black hole and loose information on the latter characteristics.

  4. Mixing and CP-violation in charm

    Petrov, Alexey A.

    2004-01-01

    The motivation most often cited in searches for D0-anti-D0 mixing and CP-violation in charm system lies with the possibility of observing a signal from new physics which dominates that from the Standard Model. We review recent theoretical predictions and experimental constraints on D0-anti-D0 mixing parameters. We also discuss the current status of searches for CP-violation in charmed meson transitions, as well as some recent theoretical ideas.

    2015-01-01

    LHCb has collected the world's largest sample of charmed hadrons. This sample is used to measure the mixing parameters in the $D^0$-$\\bar{D}^0$ system and to search for indirect $CP$ violation. This contribution focuses on measurements of $A_{\\Gamma}$ with $D^*$ and semileptonic $B$ decays and on mixing measurements and a search for $CP$ violation in $D\\to K\\pi$ decays.

  6. Spontaneous CP violation and neutral flavour conservation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The conditions for one-loop stability of neutral flavour conservation in SU(2)LxU(1) models with spontaneous CP violation are analysed. In addition to previously known cases there is an essentially unique two-generation model with two Higgs doublets where neutral flavour conservation is guaranteed to all orders by a non-standard CP symmetry.

    2003-06-01

    CP violation in neutral B meson decays has been observed confirming the prediction of the Kobayashi-Maskawa model where introduction of six quaks naturally induces CP violation in the weak interaction. The measurements of CP asymmetryc in B meson decays were made at the newly constructed Asymmetric B factories, which consist of high luminosity, ebergy-asymmetric e+e- colliders (KEKB and PEP-II) and detectors (Belle and BaBar). The results are in good agreement and are consistent with other experimental results within the framework of the Standard Model.

  8. CP violation in charm decays at CDF

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Exploiting the full Run II data sample collected by the CDF trigger on displaced vertices, we present a search for CP violation in neutral D mesons decays to hadronic final states. We use the strong D∗+ → D0π+ (and c.c.) decay to identify the flavor of the charmed meson at production time and exploit CP conserving strong c¯c pair-production in p¯p collisions. The results are the world’s most precise measurements to date and confirm the presence of sizable CP-violating effects in the charm sector as recently observed by the LHCb collaboration.

    2012-01-01

    We present a search for CP violation in single top quark production with the DØ experiment at the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider. CP violation in the top electroweak interaction results in different single top quark production cross sections for top and antitop quarks. We perform the search in the single top quark final state using 5.4 fb-1 of data, in the s-channel, t-channel, and for both combined. At this time, we do not see an observable CP asymmetry.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Recent Measurements of the parameter ε'/ε in experiments at CERN and FNAL are reviewed. The measurement of the phases of η+- and η00 in these experiments give new upper limits on CPT - violation in the K → 2π decay amplitudes and in the mass difference between K0 and K-bar0. First data from CP - LEAR are presented with a short outline of the experiment. Prospects for the future of CP - violation experiments in K - decay are discussed. (author)

    The final result of the NA48 experiment is presented and performed at the CERN SPS neutral kaon beams, on the direct CP violation parameter Re$('/)$, as measured from the decay rates of neutral kaons into two pions. The data collected in the years 1997-2001 yield the evidence for the direct CP violation with Re$('/)=(14.7± 2.2)× 10^{-4}$. Description of experimental method and systematics, comparison with the corresponding FNAL result and discussion of some implications for the theory are given.

  12. Probing CP violation systematically in differential distributions

    CERN Document Server

    Durieux, Gauthier

    2015-01-01

    We revisit the topic of triple-product asymmetries which probe CP violation through differential distributions. We construct distributions with well-defined discrete symmetry properties and characterize the asymmetries formed upon them. It is stressed that the simplest asymmetries may not be optimal. We explore systematic generalizations having limited reliance on the process dynamics and phase-space parametrization. They exploit larger fractions of the information contained in differential distributions and may lead to increased sensitivities to CP violation. Our detailed treatment of the case of spinless four-body decays paves the way for further experimental studies.

  13. A CP-Violating Kinematic Structure

    CERN Document Server

    Ahluwalia, D V

    2000-01-01

    A CP violating kinematic structure is presented. The essential physical input is to question the textbook wisdom, ``Now when a particle is at rest, one cannot define its spin as either left- or right-handed, so phi_R(0) = phi_L(0),'' as found, e.g., in Lewis Ryder's Quantum Field Theory, and in many other books on the representations of the Lorentz group. It is suggested that this equality is true only up to a phase. The demand of C, P, and T covariances, separately, fixes this phase to be pm 1. If these conditions are relaxed, a natural CP-violating kinematic structure emerges. Having established a CP-violating kinematic structure, we then discuss how Planck scale physics necessarily invokes non-commutative space-time and that such changes in the structure of space-time will force upon us additional violations/deformations of the CPT structure of space-time, and a violation of the principle of equivalence via a violation of the Lorentz symmetries. The latter may carry significant consequences for understandi...

  14. Probing new CP violating observables in D meson decays

    Liu, Yong-Feng; Kang, Xian-Wei

    2016-08-01

    CP violation in the charm quark sector has not been examined very well as the case for strange and beauty ones. Some novel insights into the issue on the CP violation in D meson decay are discussed. Specifically, i) the T-violating observables in D → VV decays are constructed. Assuming CPT invariance T violation implies CP violation. This is a new idea and an alternative way for probing CP violation in D decays; ii) the decay of quantum correlated DD̅ pair to vector mesons (denoted by V) is explored, which offers the new CP violating observables that have not been noticed before;

    CERN Document Server

    Dutta, Debajyoti

    2016-01-01

    The presence of non-unitary neutrino mixing can affect the measurement of the three-neutrino leptonic Dirac CP phase and hamper efforts to probe CP violation due to degeneracies of the extra non-unitary CP phase with the standard CP phase. We study the effect of including non-unitarity on probing CP violation with the long-baseline experiments NO$\

  16. B physics and CP violation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    After an introduction to the standard-model description of C P violation and a brief look at the present status of this phenomenon in the kaon system, a classification of non-leptonic B-decays is given and the formalism of B0d,s-B0d,s mixing is discussed. We then turn to the B-factory benchmark modes, C P violation in charged B decays, and the Bs-meson system. Finally, we focus both on B → πK decays, which play an important role to probe the CKM angle γ, and on the Bd → π+π-, Bs → K+K- system, which allows an interesting determination of β and γ. (orig.)

Furthermore, for a given value of m{sub 0}, there are two solutions for the two Majorana phases α{sub 21} and α{sub 31}, whereas the Dirac phase δ is arbitrary. For (ii), the parameters of m{sub 0}, δ, α{sub 21}, and α{sub 31} can be completely determined. We calculate the CP-violating asymmetries in neutrino–antineutrino oscillations for both mass textures of (i) and (ii), which are closely related to the CP-violating Majorana phases.

    We point out that there is a unique parametrization of quark flavor mixing in which every angle is close to the Cabibbo angle \\theta_C \\simeq 13^\\circ with the CP-violating phase \\phi_q around 1^\\circ, implying that they might all be related to the strong hierarchy among quark masses. Applying the same parametrization to lepton flavor mixing, we find that all three mixing angles are comparably large (around \\pi/4) and the Dirac CP-violating phase \\phi_l is also minimal as compared with its values in the other eight possible parametrizations. In this spirit, we propose a simple neutrino mixing ansatz which is equivalent to the tri-bimaximal flavor mixing pattern in the \\phi_l \\to 0 limit and predicts \\sin\\theta_13 = 1/\\sqrt{2} \\sin (\\phi_l/2) for reactor antineutrino oscillations.

    Direct CP violation in nonleptonic hyperon decays can be established by comparing the decays of hyperons and anti-hyperons. For {Xi} decay to {Lambda} {pi} followed by {Lambda} to p{pi}, the proton distribution in the rest frame of Lambda is governed by the product of the decay parameters {alpha}{sub {Xi}} {alpha}{sub {Lambda}}. The asymmetry A{sub {Xi}{Lambda}}, proportional to the difference of {alpha}{sub {Xi}}{alpha}{sub {Lambda}} of the hyperon and anti-hyperon decays, vanishes if CP is conserved. We report on an analysis of a fraction of 1997 and 1999 data collected by the Hyper CP (E871) collaboration during the fixed-target runs at Fermilab. The preliminary measurement of the asymmetry is {Alpha}{sub {Xi}{Lambda}} = [-7 {+-} 12(stat) {+-} 6.2(sys)] x 10{sup -4}, an order of magnitude better than the present limit.

  9. Radiative violation of CP-symmetry

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The left-right quiral symmetry is not conserved by the Standard model. A subgroup of the standard gauge group (SU(2)L) breaks this symmetry in a explicit way. Moreover, the standard model, if there are theree or more matter generations, violates the CP discrete symmetry. This prediction has been experimentally demonstrated correct in the Kaon anti Kaon system. In this work some possible explanations to the CP violation parameter magnitude are researched. We have studied the variation of the Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix with the energy scale. To realize this work we have developed a general method to calculate the renormalization group equations of the Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix parameters. From these equations we could also calculate the renormalization group equation of the J parameter that characterizes the CP violation. This calculus has been applied in a concrete example: a typical supersymmetric model from superstring theories. This model can be seen like a natural extension of the supersymmetric standard model. This kind of models have a gauge group bigger that the standard one more particles and new terms of the Lagrangian. We have verified that such model provides us of a correct low energy fenomenology and, moreover other results, some particle spectrums have been developed. In the elaboration of this model some conditions, that the model has to respected to be compatible with the actual fenomenology, have been studied. The most interesting results of this thesis are the develop of a general method to calculate the renormalization group equations of the Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix parameters and the develop of a new mechanism of the radiative violation. This mechanism is related with the new terms of the Lagrangian. (Author)

    I consider Compton scattering off the nucleon in the presence of $CP$ violation. I construct the Compton tensor which possesses these features and consider low energy expansion (LEX) of the corresponding amplitudes. It allows to separate out the Born contribution which only depends on the static properties of the nucleon, such as the electric charge, the mass, the magnetic moment, and the electric dipole moment (EDM). I introduce new structure constants, the $T$-odd nucleon polarizabilities which parametrize the unknown non-Born part. These constants describe the response of the $T$-violating content of the nucleon to the external quasistatic electromagnetic field. As an estimate, I provide a HBChPT calculation for these new polarizabilities and discuss the implications for the experiment.

    2013-01-01

    We consider CP-violating effects in tau -> 3 pi nu_ tau and 4 pi nu_ tau (Delta S = 0), and tau -> K pi pi nu_tau (Delta S = 1), assuming that the usual Standard Model amplitudes for these processes interfere with analogous amplitudes mediated by a charged Higgs boson. In the Delta S = 0 case we focus specifically on the intermediate resonant processes tau -> V pi nu_tau (with V=omega, rho, and a_1), and consider three CP-odd observables -- the partial rate asymmetry, a polarization-dependent asymmetry and a triple-product asymmetry. In the Delta S = 1 case we examine the partial rate asymmetry, two "modified" rate asymmetries, and a triple-product asymmetry. The partial rate asymmetry is expected to be small for both the Delta S = 0 and Delta S = 1 cases. Evaluation of the other asymmetries indicates that they could potentially be measurable.

    Using their full Tevatron Run II data sets, the CDF and D0 Experiments present measurements of CP -violating asymmetries in the charmless decays of bottom baryons Λ0 → pπ-, Λ0 → pK-, and also for B0 → K-π+, B0 → K+π-, b b s Ds → φπ± , and for single muons and like-sign dimuons in pp collisions. Except for the like-sign dimuon asymmetry, these asymmetry measurements are consistent with available predictions of the standard model.

  16. Neutrinos as a probe of CP-violation and leptogenesis

    Establishing CP-violation in the lepton sector is one of the most challenging future tasks in neutrino physics. The lepton mixing matrix contains one Dirac phase and, if neutrinos are Majorana particles, two additional CP-violating phases. I will review the main theoretical aspects of CP-violation in the lepton sector. Then, I will present the strategies for determining the Dirac and the Majorana CP-violating phases in long-baseline and neutrinoless double beta decay experiments, respectively. Leptonic CP-violation has received recently a lot of attention as it might be at the origin of the baryon asymmetry of the Universe. Within the context of the see-saw mechanism, I will discuss the possible connection between the CP-violating phases measurable at low energy with the ones entering in leptogenesis.

    Full Text Available The Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (NMSSM features extra new sources for CP violation. In contrast to the MSSM CP violation can already occur at tree level in the Higgs sector. We investigate the range of possible allowed CP-violating phases by taking into account the constraints arising from the measurements of the Electric Dipole Moments (EDMs and the latest LHC Higgs data. Our analysis shows that large CP-violating phases, that are NMSSM-specific, are not in conflict with the EDMs. They are dominantly constrained by the Higgs data in this case. We use our results to investigate the prospects of measuring CP violation through the combined measurement of Higgs rates, on the one hand, and in observables based on CP-violating Higgs couplings to tau leptons on the other hand.

    CP violation is intimately connected with the puzzle of matter-antimatter asymmetry and baryogenesis. In the Standard Model of particle physics, the observed CP violation phenomena are accounted for by the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa mechanism involving a phase in the quark mixing matrix. This paper is devoted to a review of the experimental status of CP violation in the decays of B mesons.

    Recent results on mixing and CP violation in charm decays are presented, based on an integrated luminosity of 1 fb 1 from pp -collision data taken at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV with the LHCb detector. The hypothesis of no mixing in the D 0 ̄ D 0 system is excluded with a significance of 9 : 1 s . Direct CP violation searches are reported in different modes.

    2016-01-01

    The phenomenon of CP violation has been observed in the K- and B-meson systems, but not yet with any baryonic particle. We report on searches for CP violation in baryon decays at LHCb using Run I data. We find evidence for CP violation in Lambda0b -> p pi- pi+ pi- decays with a statistical significance corresponding to 3.3 standard deviations, including systematic uncertainties. This represents the first evidence of CP violation in the baryon sector. An overview of other recent results of baryon decays will be presented, along with some highlights of the charmless B-decay programme.

  3. BaBar Explores CP Violation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The most recent results obtained by the BABAR experiment at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B Factory at SLAC on CP-violating asymmetries and branching fractions for neutral and charged B decays are presented here. The analysis was performed on a data sample of ∼ 88 million Υ(4S) → B(bar B) decays collected between 1999 and 2002. Using b → c(bar c)s decays, we measure sin2β = 0.741 ± 0.067(stat) ± 0.034(syst). We also present sin2β measurements from, b → s(bar s)s and b → c(bar c)d processes. From neutral B meson decays to two-body final states of charged pions and kaons, we derive for the CP violating parameters, Sππ = 0.02 ± 0.34 ± 0.05 [-0.54, +0.58] and Cππ = -0.30 ± 0.25 ± 0.04 [-0.72, +0.12]. First results for B → π+π-π0 and K±π±π0 final states dominated by the ρ± resonance, are also presented

    Major progress has been made in kaon physics in the past 50 years. The number of KL->pi+pi- events has increased by 6 orders of magnitude, and the observed CP violation was experimentally proven to be caused by a complex phase in the CKM matrix. Recent kaon experiments are now searching for new physics beyond the standard model with the K->pi nu nu-bar decays. The branching ratio of K->pi nu nu-bar decays are 7-8 orders of magnitude smaller than the branching ratio of KL->pi+ pi-. This paper reviews the progress of kaon experiments in the US and Japan, and how the 6-7 orders of magnitude improvements were possible in the past 50 years.

    For the entangled neutral kaon system we formulate a Bell inequality sensitive to CP violation in mixing. Via this Bell inequality we obtain a bound on the leptonic CP asymmetry which is violated by experimental data. Furthermore, we connect the Bell inequality with a decoherence approach and find a lower bound on the decoherence parameter which practically corresponds to Furry's hypothesis.

    CP violation in the standard model originates from the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa mixing matrix. Upon integrating all fermions out of the theory, its effects are captured by a series of effective nonrenormalizable operators for the bosonic gauge and Higgs fields. We compute the CP-violating part...... of the effective action to the leading nontrivial, sixth order in the covariant gradient expansion as a function of temperature. In the limit of zero temperature, our result addresses the discrepancy between two independent calculations existing in the literature [1, 2]. We find that CP violation in the standard...

  10. Complementarity of LHC and EDMs for Exploring Higgs CP Violation

    Chen, Chien-Yi; Zhang, Yue

    2015-01-01

    We analyze the constraints on a CP-violating, flavor conserving, two Higgs doublet model from the measurements of Higgs properties and from the search for heavy Higgs bosons at LHC, and show that the stronger limits typically come from the heavy Higgs search channels. The limits on CP violation arising from the Higgs sector measurements are complementary to those from EDM measurements. Combining all current constraints from low energy to colliders, we set generic upper bounds on the CP violating angle which parametrizes the CP odd component in the 126 GeV Higgs boson.

  11. Implications of maximal Jarlskog invariant and maximal CP violation

    CERN Document Server

    Rodríguez-Jáuregui, E

    2001-01-01

    We argue here why CP violating phase Phi in the quark mixing matrix is maximal, that is, Phi=90 degrees. In the Standard Model CP violation is related to the Jarlskog invariant J, which can be obtained from non commuting Hermitian mass matrices. In this article we derive the conditions to have Hermitian mass matrices which give maximal Jarlskog invariant J and maximal CP violating phase Phi. We find that all squared moduli of the quark mixing elements have a singular point when the CP violation phase Phi takes the value Phi=90 degrees. This special feature of the Jarlskog invariant J and the quark mixing matrix is a clear and precise indication that CP violating Phase Phi is maximal in order to let nature treat democratically all of the quark mixing matrix moduli.

  12. Phenomenology of CP violation in a flavor blind MSSM

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We present an analysis of CP violating effects in a supersymmetric scenario, where the CKM matrix remains the only source of flavor violation but new CP violating phases are introduced in the soft sector. Such a scenario can be probed not only through flavor conserving observables like EDMs, but also through several flavor changing and CP violating processes, like the CP asymmetries in b→sγ and B→φKS. We find strong correlations among these observables. In particular, the desire to reproduce the measured non-standard value of the CP asymmetry in B→φKS unambiguously implies large effects in the CP asymmetry of b→sγ as well as lower bounds of the EDMs of the electron and the neutron

  13. Unity of CP and T Violation in Neutrino Oscillations

    Blom, Martin; Blom, Martin; Minakata, Hisakazu

    2004-01-01

    In a previous work a simultaneous P- CP[P] and P- T[P] bi-probability plot was proposed as a useful tool for unified graphical description of CP and T violation in neutrino oscillation. The ``baseball diamond'' structure of the plot is understood as a consequence of the approximate CP-CP and the T-CP relations obeyed by the oscillation probabilities. In this paper, we make a step forward toward deeper understanding of the unified graphical representation by showing that these two relations are identical in its content, suggesting a truly unifying view of CP and T violation in neutrino oscillations. We suspect that the unity reflects the underlying CPT theorem. We also present calculation of corrections to the CP-CP and the T-CP relations to leading order in Delta m^2_{21} / Delta m^2_{31} and s^2_{13}.

    It is easy to construct classical 2-state systems illustrating the behavior of the short-lived and long-lived neutral $K$ mesons in the limit of CP conservation. The emulation of CP violation is more tricky, but is provided by the two-dimensional motion of a Foucault pendulum. Analogies are drawn between the pendulum and observables in neutral kaon decays. An emulation of CP- and CPT-violation using electric circuits is also discussed.

    In this letter, we analyze for the first time the physics reach in terms of sensitivity to leptonic CP violation of the proposed MuOn-decay MEdium baseline NeuTrino beam (MOMENT) experiment, a novel neutrino oscillation facility that would operate with neutrinos from muon decay. Apart from obtaining a sufficiently intense flux, the bottlenecks to the physics reach of this experiment will be achieving a high enough suppression of the atmospheric background and, particularly, attaining a sufficient level of charge identification. We thus present our results as a function of these two factors. We consider a very massive Gd-doped Water Cherenkov detector. We also find that MOMENT will be competitive with other currently planned future oscillation experiments if a charge identification of at least 80 % can be achieved at the same time that the atmospheric background can be suppressed by at least a factor of ten. We also find a large synergy of MOMENT with the current generation of neutrino oscillation experiments, T2K and NOvA, which significantly enhances its final sensitivity.

Fully reconstructed $D^0\\to K^+ K^-$ and $D^0\\to \\pi^+\\pi^-$ decays collected in $p\\bar{p}$ collisions by the Collider Detector at Fermilab experiment and corresponding to a data set of $9.7$~fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity are used. The flavor of the charm meson at production is determined by exploiting the decay $D^{*+} \\to D^0 \\pi^+$. Contamination from mesons originated in $b$-hadron decays is subtracted from the sample. Signal yields as functions of the observed decay-time distributions are determined using likelihood fits and used to measure the asymmetries. The results, $A_\\Gamma (K^+K^-) = \\bigl(-1.9 \\pm 1.5~(stat) \\pm 0.4~(syst) \\bigr)\\times10^{-3}$ and $A_\\Gamma (\\pi^+\\pi^-)= \\bigl(-0.1 \\pm 1.8~(stat) \\pm 0.3~(syst) \\bigr)\\times10^{-3}$, and their combination, $A_\\Gamma = \\bigl(-1.2 \\pm 1.2 \\bigr)\\times10^{-3}$, are consistent with the SM predictions and other experimen...

    We discuss the impact of non-standard neutrino matter interactions (NSIs) in propagation on the determination of the CP phase in the context of long baseline accelerator experiments such as the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). DUNE will mainly address the issue of CP violation in the leptonic sector. Here we study the role of NSI and its impact on observing the CP violation signal at DUNE. We consider two scenarios of oscillation with three active neutrinos in the absence and presence of NSI. We elucidate the importance of ruling out subdominant new physics effects introduced by NSI in inferring the CP violation signal at DUNE by considering NSI terms collectively as well as by exploiting the non-trivial interplay of moduli and phases of the NSI terms. We demonstrate the existence of NSI-SI degeneracies which need to be eliminated in reliable manner in order to make conclusive statements about the CP phase.

    2015-04-24

    Early after the discovery of CP violation, the explanation of how the Standard Model of particle physics could allow CP violation was quickly given, but it took many years for the original observation to be unequivocally explained on that basis. It was also proposed that this observation opened up the possibility that we could now explain the fact that the universe is made of matter. Remarkably, 50 years later we have no evidence in particle physics that there is any CP violation except that of the Kobayashi Maskawa mechanism of the standard model. Yet we fail completely to explain the baryon asymmetry of the Universe through that mechanism. After reviewing the main points in the history I describe the present experimental attempts to find CP violation beyond the standard model, and explain the theoretical attempts to explain the matter in the Universe.

A nearly bi-maximal flavor mixing pattern, which is favored by current data on atmospheric and solar neutrino oscillations, emerges naturally from this model after explicit symmetry breaking. The rephasing-invariant strength of CP or T violation can be as large as one percent, leading to significant probability asymmetries between \

    We propose a generalized $\\mu-\\tau$ reflection symmetry to constrain the lepton flavor mixing parameters. We obtain a new correlation between the atmospheric mixing angle $\\theta_{23}$ and the "Dirac" CP violation phase $\\delta_{\\rm CP}$. Only in a specific limit our proposed CP transformation reduces to standard $\\mu-\\tau$ reflection, for which $\\theta_{23}$ and $\\delta_{CP}$ are both maximal. The "Majorana" phases are predicted to lie at their CP-conserving values with important implications for the neutrinoless double beta decay rates. We also study the phenomenological implications of our scheme for present and future neutrino oscillation experiments including T2K, NO$\

    One of the main goals of the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) is to look for new sources of CP-invariance violation. Another is to significantly test the three-massive-neutrinos paradigm. Here, we show that there are CP-invariant new physics scenarios which, as far as DUNE data are concerned, cannot be distinguished from the three-massive-neutrinos paradigm with very large CP-invariance violating effects. We discuss examples with non-standard neutrino interactions and with a fourth neutrino mass eigenstate. We briefly discuss how ambiguities can be resolved by combining DUNE data with data from other long-baseline experiments, including Hyper-Kamiokande.

    Results of recent searches for new physics in CP violation in charm decays from the BABAR experiment are presented. These results include a measurement of D0 - anti D0 mixing and searches for CP violation in two-body D0 decays, a search for CP violation in the charm decays D± → KS0K ± and D s± → KS0K± , KS0π± , and a search for direct CP violation in the singly-Cabibbo suppressed D± → K+K-π±decays. These studies are based on the final dataset collected by BABAR at the PEP-II B factory at SLAC in the period 1999-2008. No evidence of CP violation is found in these charm decays. The measured mixing parameter yCP = [0.72 ± 0.18(stat) ± 0.12(syst)]% excludes the no-mixing null hypothesis with a significance of 3.3σ .

  11. CP violation and electroweak baryogenesis in the Standard Model

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Brauner Tomáš

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available One of the major unresolved problems in current physics is understanding the origin of the observed asymmetry between matter and antimatter in the Universe. It has become a common lore to claim that the Standard Model of particle physics cannot produce sufficient asymmetry to explain the observation. Our results suggest that this conclusion can be alleviated in the so-called cold electroweak baryogenesis scenario. On the Standard Model side, we continue the program initiated by Smit eight years ago; one derives the effective CP-violating action for the Standard Model bosons and uses the resulting effective theory in numerical simulations. We address a disagreement between two previous computations performed effectively at zero temperature, and demonstrate that it is very important to include temperature effects properly. Our conclusion is that the cold electroweak baryogenesis scenario within the Standard Model is tightly constrained, yet producing enough baryon asymmetry using just known physics still seems possible.

    2016-01-01

    LHCb has collected the world's largest sample of charmed hadrons, thus enabling measurements of direct and indirect CP violation parameters of D^0 mesons to be made with unprecedented precision. The difference in CP asymmetries between the singly Cabibbo-suppressed (SCS) D^0 -> K+K- and D^0 -> pi+pi- decays (Delta A_CP) has emerged as a powerful observable to search for direct CPV in the charm sector. By taking the difference between the two modes, most of the asymmetries induced by the detector or coming from the production mechanism are cancelled. The measurement of Delta A_CP done at LHCb is the most precise measurement of a time-integrated CP asymmetry in the charm sector from a single experiment, with a precision reaching the sub-permille level. Two independent measurements of Delta A_CP based on complementary data sets will be presented. Related 2-body searches and searches for direct CP violation in multi-body decays of the D^0 mesons will be discussed. Indirect CP violation in charm is measured throug...

    LECTURE SERIES   4, 5, 6 and 7 April 2011 Flavour Physics and CP Violation Dr. Yosef Nir (Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel 11:00-12:00 - 4, 6 and 7 April - Bldg. 222-R-001 - Filtration Plant 5 April - Bldg. 80-1-001 - Globe 1st Floor   The B-factories have led to significant progress in our understanding of CP violation and of flavour physics. Yet, two flavour puzzles remain. The standard model flavour puzzle is the question of why there is smallness and hierarchy in the flavour parameters. The new physics flavour puzzle is the question of why TeV-scale new physics was not signalled in flavour changing neutral current processes. The high pT experiments, ATLAS and CMS, are likely to shed light on these puzzles. As concerns CP violation, the LHC will lead to progress on the puzzle of the baryon asymmetry as well.

    In a recent paper[1] Kundu and one of the present authors showed that there were transient but observable CP violating effects in the decay of classical currents on the horizon of a black hole, if the Lagrangian of the Maxwell field contained a CP violating angle {\\theta}. In this paper we demonstrate that a similar effect can be seen in the quantum mechanics of QED: a non-trivial Berry phase in the QED wave function is produced by in-falling electric charges. We also investigate whether CP violation, of this or any other type, might be used to produce the baryon asymmetry of the universe, in models where primordial black hole decay contributes to the matter content of the present universe. This can happen both in a variety of hybrid inflation models, and in the Holographic Space-time (HST) model of inflation[2].

  16. CP violation in tbW couplings at the LHC

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We study in a model-independent way anomalous CP-violating tbW effective couplings that might arise from new physics in the processes pp→tW-X and pp→t¯W+X, followed by semileptonic decay of t and t¯. These processes have a dependence on effective tbW couplings both in the production process as well as in the decay of the t or t¯. We propose several CP-violating asymmetries constructed out of variables in the two processes, including t and t¯ polarization, and energy and azimuthal angles of the decay particles. We find that it is feasible to probe a certain CP-violating combination of anomalous couplings at the percent level at the LHC for centre-of-mass energy 14 TeV and an integrated luminosity of 10 fb-1.

    Italo Mannelli (left) et Heinrich Wahl (right) at CERN after the announcement of the prize. The American Physical Society has recently announced its 2007 winners of the W K H Panofsky prize to CERN's Heinrich Wahl (now at the University of Ferrara), Italo Mannelli from Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa and Bruce Winstein of University of Chicago. These three physicists led experiments that resulted in a multitude of precision measurements of properties of neutral kaons, most notably the discovery of direct CP violation. The W K H Panofsky prize recognizes outstanding achievements in experimental particle physics. Wahl and Mannelli's important work at CERN with CP violation and neutral kaons in the 1970s paved the way for the NA31 experiment in the 1980s. This experiment, of which Wahl was the spokesperson, focused on and found the first evidence for direct CP violation. Mannelli played a leading role, particularly in implementing his knowledge of calorimetry using liquefied noble gases, a technique originally...

  18. CP violation in the standard model and beyond

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The present status of CP violation in the standard six quark model is reviewed and a combined analysis with B-meson decays is presented. The theoretical uncertainties in the analysis are discussed and the resulting KM weak mixing angles, the phase delta and the ratio epsilon'/epsilon are given as functions of Tsub(B), GAMMA(b -> u)/GAMMA(b -> c), msub(t) and the B parameter. For certain ranges of the values of these parameters the standard model is not capable in reproducing the experimental values for epsilon' and epsilon parameters. Anticipating possible difficulties we discuss various alternatives to the standard explanation of CP violation such as horizontal interactions, left-right symmetric models and supersymmetry. CP violation outside the kaon system is also briefly discussed. (orig.)

    We report results of a search for CP violation in the singly Cabibbo-suppressed decays D+ -> K- K+ pi+, phi pi+, K*(892)0 K+, and pi- pi+ pi+ based on data from the charm hadroproduction experiment E791 at Fermilab. We search for a difference in the D+ and D- decay rates for each of the final states. No evidence for a difference is seen. The decay rate asymmetry parameters A(CP), defined as the difference in the D+ and D- decay rates divided by the sum of the decay rates, are measured to be: A(CP)(K K pi) = -0.014 +/- 0.029, A(CP)(phi pi) = -0.028 +/- 0.036, A(CP)(K*(892) K) = -0.010 +/- 0.050, and A(CP)(pi pi pi) = -0.017 +/- 0.042.

    LHCb is a dedicated heavy flavour physics precision experiment at the LHC searching for New Physics (NP) beyond the Standard Model (SM) through the study of very rare decays of beauty and charm-flavoured hadrons and precision measurements of CP-violating observables. In this review I will present a selection of recent precision measurements of CP-violating observables in the decays of beauty and charm-flavoured hadrons. These measurements are based on an integrated luminosity of up to 1.0 fb{sup −1} collected by LHCb in 2011.

    $CP$ violation and branching fraction measurements in $D$ decays are interesting topics as any difference with respect to the Standard Model prediction would be an indication of new physics. With the large data sample collected by the Belle detector, which sits at the interaction point of KEKB asymmetric $e^{+} e^{-}$ collider in Japan, we present the results of searches for $CP$ violation in $D^{0}\\rightarrow V\\gamma~(V = \\phi, \\overline{K}^{*0}, \\rho^{0})$ decay and the rare $D$ decay $D^{0}\\rightarrow \\gamma \\gamma$.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Detailed studies of weak decays serve not only to confirm the Standard Model, but possess also a high sensitivity to New Physics: tau and top decays are discussed in this vein, with some short remarks on beauty and charm. The sensitivity to New Physics is even higher in delicate phenomena like mixing and CP violation: a fairly detailed discussion on K0 - anti K0, D0 - anti D0, and B0 - anti B0 mixing and on CP violation in K0 and B decays is presented. 48 refs., 11 figs

  4. CP violation in the B system: What's old, what's new?

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    I review the many ways of obtaining information about the CKM matrix through CP violation in the B system. I include direct and indirect CP violation, the role of penguins and isospin analysis, tagging, and B→DK decays. I also discuss recent developments showing how to use SU(3) flavor symmetry, along with some dynamical approximations, to extract from B decays to ππ, πK, and KK0 the weak CKM phases, the strong phase shifts, and the sizes of the various contributing diagrams. Finally, I briefly show what can be learned from an exact treatment of the CKM matrix. copyright 1995 American Institute of Physics

    2005-01-01

    We study the impact of the positivity of the measure of CP violation in neutrino oscillations on the values of |V_e3| and |V_mu1|. We use the available information on the solar and atmospheric mixing parameters |V_e2| and |V_mu3| provided by neutrino oscillation data. We conclude that large values of |V_e3| are preferred at 95% confidence level. This, in turn, favours large values for J_lepton compared to CP violation in the quark sector.

    We study the potential to observe CP-violating effects in SUSY cascade decay chains at the LHC. Asymmetries composed by triple products of momenta of the final state particles are sensitive to CP-violating effects. Due to large boosts that dilute the asymmetries, these can be difficult to observe. Extending the methods of momentum reconstruction we show that the original size of these asymmetries may be measurable. A study is done at the hadronic level with backgrounds to estimate the expected sensitivity at the LHC. (orig.)

  10. CP Violation and Baryogenesis from New Heavy Quarks

    CERN Document Server

    Hou, Wei-Shu

    2008-01-01

    The electroweak theory contains all the necessary ingredients for baryogenesis, albeit insufficiently. Baryon number is violated at high temperature, but the electroweak phase transition is too weak, while {$CP$} violation in the three generation Kobayashi-Maskawa model is much too small. % We point out that an extra generation of heavy quarks could resolve both issues. Recent B factory data may hint at new sources of {$CP$} violation in the {$B^\\pm\\to K^\\pm\\pi^0$} electroweak penguin process. Unequivocal evidence could soon emerge at the Tevatron, in the {$CP$} violating phase {$\\sin 2\\Phi_{B_s}$} in {$\\bar B_s^0$}--{$B_s^0$} oscillations. Both effects can come from a heavy top-like {$t^\\prime$} quark. The large Yukawa couplings, associated with the heaviness of the {$t^\\prime$} and {$b^\\prime$} quarks, enhance the {$CP$} violation by orders of magnitude, and could strengthen the electroweak phase transition. The Large Hadron Collider can quickly confirm a large and negative {$\\sin 2\\Phi_{B_s}$}, and discove...

  11. CPLEAR et BABAR, all aspects of CP violation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This report of French 'Habilitation a diriger les recherches' summarizes my scientific activity from 1993 to 2003. During this decade, my research work was related to two particle physics experiments: CPLEAR and BABAR. The first one, CPLEAR, has recorded data from 1988 to 1995 on the low energy anti-proton ring (LEAR) at CERN. This experiment was devoted to the study of T, CPT et CP discrete symmetries. The second experiment, BABAR, has been running since 1999, on the PEP-II B factory at SLAC. This experiment searches for CP violation and tests the Standard Model through the measurements of the angles and the sides of the Unitarity Triangle. My research work is divided in five main topics: Study of CP and CPT violation in K0 → π+ π- decays; Performance optimization of the particle identification detector (DIRC) of the BABAR experiment; B meson tagging in BABAR experiment; Δmd measurement and Search for CP and T violation in mixing with dilepton events; Search for CP violation in B0 → ρ± π± and B0 → π± K± decays.

    In a recent publication, we suggested a mechanism for obtaining dynamical CP violation in the early Universe based on the out-of-equilibrium evolution of complex scalar fields. In this paper, we suggest several ways of transferring the CP asymmetry from the scalar sector to the leptonic sector. In particular, we point out how a ``transient MNS(P) matrix'' can generate an asymmetry between fermions and anti-fermions directly.

As the CP-odd observable, we use the asymmetry composed by triple products of final state momenta. There are good prospects of observing these effects using the method of kinematic reconstruction for the final and intermediate state particles. We also discuss the main experimental factors and the expected sensitivity.

  16. Panofsky Prize Talk: Measurements of Direct CP Violation in the Decays of Neutral Kaons at Fermilab

    Science.gov (United States)

    Winstein, Bruce

    2007-04-01

    For many years after its discovery, CP Violation appeared to be a phenomenon isolated from the rest of physics. The first goal was to see if tCP violation was due to a ``superweak'' interaction in neutral kaon mixing (``indirect'' CP violation) or if there were a ``direct'' effect which would be manifest in the kaon decays themselves. For years, it seemed to be an interaction of the former kind, one that might not have any additional manifestations. A few years after the discovery, Sakharov realized that CP Violation in the very early Universe, in particular direct CP Violation, could lead to the matter-antimatter imbalance. A key development was the Kobayashi-Maskawa model which provided a framework in which to think about the problem, connecting it to quark mixing. This motivated a series of 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation experiments to isolate the predicted direct effect. This talk will review how the problem was addressed in 3 Fermilab- based experiments spanning a 20 year period which culminated in a definitive detection of the effect by KTeV. The motivation and technical approaches to isolate this tiny effect with good control of systematic uncertainty will be reviewed together with the results and future prospects.

    2001-01-01

    We present a summary of recent results on CP violation and mixing in the charm quark sector based on a high statistics sample collected by photoproduction experiment FOCUS (E831 at Fermilab). We have measured the difference in lifetimes for the $D^0$ decays: $D^0 \\to K^-\\pi^+$ and $D^0 \\to K^-K^+$. This translates into a measurement of the $y_{CP}$ mixing parameter in the $\\d0d0$ system, under the assumptions that $K^-K^+$ is an equal mixture of CP odd and CP even eigenstates, and CP violation is negligible in the neutral charm meson system. We verified the latter assumption by searching for a CP violating asymmetry in the Cabibbo suppressed decay modes $D^+ \\to K^-K^+\\pi^+$, $D^0 \\to K^-K^+$ and $D^0 \\to \\pi^-\\pi^+$. We show preliminary results on a measurement of the branching ratio $\\Gamma(D^{*+}\\to \\pi^+ (K^+\\pi^-))/\\Gamma(D^{*+}\\to \\pi^+ (K^-\\pi^+))$.

  18. Addressing the strong CP problem with quark mass ratios

    CERN Document Server

    Díaz-Cruz, J L; Saldaña-Salazar, U J

    2016-01-01

    The strong CP problem is one of many puzzles in the theoretical description of elementary particles physics that still lacks an explanation. Solutions to that problem usually comprise new symmetries or fields or both. The main problem seems to be how to achieve small CP in the strong interactions despite large CP violation in weak interactions. Observation of CP violation is exclusively through the Higgs--Yukawa interactions. In this letter, we show that with minimal assumptions on the structure of mass (Yukawa) matrices the strong CP problem does not exist in the Standard Model and no extension to solve this is needed. However, to solve the flavor puzzle, models based on minimal SU(3) flavor groups leading to the proposed flavor matrices are favored.

    A high statistics sample of photoproduced charm particles from the FOCUS (E831) experiment at Fermilab has been used to search for CP violation in the Cabibbo suppressed decay modes D+ to K-K+pi+, D0 to K-K+ and D0 to pi-pi+. We have measured the following CP asymmetry parameters: A_CP(K-K+pi+) = +0.006 +/- 0.011 +/- 0.005, A_CP(K-K+) = -0.001 +/- 0.022 +/- 0.015 and A_CP(pi-pi+) = +0.048 +/- 0.039 +/- 0.025 where the first error is statistical and the second error is systematic. These asymmetries are consistent with zero with smaller errors than previous measurements.

    There are different approaches for the hadronic B decay calculations, recently. In this paper, we upgrade three of them, namely factorization, QCD factorization and the perturbative QCD approach based on kT factorization, using new parameters and full wave functions. Although they get similar results for many of the branching ratios,the direct CP asymmetries predicted by them are different, which can be tested by recent experimental measurements of B factories.

    We study how to incorporate CP violation in the Froggatt--Nielsen (FN) mechanism. To this end, we introduce non-renormalizable interactions with a flavor democratic structure to the fermion mass generation sector. It is found that at least two iso-singlet scalar fields with imposed a discrete symmetry are necessary to generate CP violation due to the appearance of the relative phase between their vacuum expectation values. In the simplest model, ratios of quark masses and the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa (CKM) matrix including the CP violating phase are determined by the CKM element |V_{us}| and the ratio of two vacuum expectation values R=|R|e^{i*alpha} (a magnitude and a phase). It is demonstrated how the angles phi_i (i=1--3) of the unitarity triangle and the CKM off-diagonal elements |V_{ub}| and |V_{cb}| are predicted as a function of |V_{us}|, |R| and \\alpha. Although the predicted value of the CP violating phase does not agree with the experimental data within the simplest model, the basic idea of our sce...

  5. Superweak C.P. violation mediated by neutral Higgs bosons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In the framework of the standard SU(2) tensorial product of U(1) model, it is shown that a triplet and a singlet of Higgs bosons give rise to the ΔI=1/2 rule and to superweak CP violation in the non-leptonic sector

  6. CP-violation in cascade decays at the LHC

    CERN Document Server

    Tattersall, Jamie

    We study the potential to observe CP-violating effects in various supersymmetric cascade decay chains at the LHC. Asymmetries composed by triple products of momenta of the final state particles are sensitive to CP-violating effects. We analytically calculate the cascade decays including the relevant spin correlations to compute the parton level asymmetry. In addition, we use Monte Carlo simulations to estimate the sensitivity of the LHC to the CP-violating observables. Due to large boosts that dilute the asymmetries, these can be difficult to observe at the LHC. However, if all particle masses in a cascade decay are known, it may be possible to reconstruct all momenta in the decay chains. We can then recover the full asymmetry on an event-by-event basis even when we have missing momentum due to a stable lightest supersymmetric particle. After the reconstruction, the non-diluted CP-violating signal gets significantly enhanced so that an observation may become feasible. A fully hadronic study has also been co...

  7. CP violation in the Standard Model with a complex singlet

    CP violation of the Standard Model (SM) is insufficient to explain the baryon asymmetry in the Universe and therefore an additional source of CP violation is needed. Here we consider the extension of the SM by a neutral complex singlet and discuss the physical conditions for a spontaneous CP violation in such model. In the model there are three neutral Higgs particles. Assuming the lightest one to be the 125 GeV Higgs boson found at LHC we calculate masses of the additional Higgs scalars and perform a numerical study of the allowed region of parameters. The scenario according to which the SM-like Higgs particle comes mostly from the SM-like SU(2) doublet, with a small modification coming from the singlet, is in agreement with the newest $R_{\\gamma \\gamma}$ and precise EW (parameters S, T) data. We have found that the Jarlskog invariant, measuring the strength of the CP violation, can be enhanced as compared to the one in the SM, at the same time there is no corresponding enhancements expected for the Electric...

  8. CP violation in K decays and rare decays

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The present status of CP violation in decays of neutral kaons is reviewed. In addition selected rare decays of both K and B mesons are discussed. The emphasis is in particular on observables that can be reliably calculated and thus offer the possibility of clean tests of standard model flavor physics. 105 refs

  9. A new perspective on CP and T violation

    CERN Document Server

    Ashtekar, Abhay

    2013-01-01

    It is shown that the results of CP and T violation experiments can be interpreted using a very general framework that does not require a Hilbert space of states or linear operators to represent the symmetries or dynamics. Analysis within this general framework brings out the aspects of quantum mechanics that are essential for this interpretation. More importantly, should quantum mechanics be eventually replaced by a new paradigm, this framework could \\emph{still} be used to establish violation of CP and T invariance from the already known experimental results. This work arose as a `formal response' to a talk "Three Merry Roads to T-Violation" by Dr. Bryan Roberts [1]. Both talks were given at a "Workshop on Cosmology and Time" held at Penn State in April 2013, which brought together physicists and philosophers of science.

  10. CP Violation in $D^0\\rightarrow K_SK_S$

    2015-01-01

    The direct CP asymmetry $a_{CP}^{\\mathrm{dir}}(D^0\\rightarrow K_SK_S)$ involves exchange diagrams which are induced at tree-level in the Standard Model. Since the corresponding topological amplitude $E_{KK}$ can be large, $D^0\\rightarrow K_SK_S$ is a promising discovery channel for charm CP violation. We estimate the penguin annihilation amplitude with a perturbative calculation and extract the exchange amplitude $E_{KK}$ from a global fit to $D$ branching ratios. Our results are further used to predict the size of mixing-induced CP violation. We obtain $\\vert a_{CP}^{\\mathrm{dir}}(D^0\\rightarrow K_SK_S)\\vert \\leq 1.1\\%$ (95\\% C.L.). The same bound applies to the nonuniversal part of the phase between the $D\\!-\\overline{\\!D}\\,$ mixing and decay amplitudes. If future data exceed our predictions, this will point to new physics or an enhancement of the penguin annihilation amplitude by QCD dynamics. We briefly discuss the implications of these possibilities for other CP asymmetries.

    We present measurements of time-dependent CP-violating asymmetries in neutral B decays to several CP eigenstates. The measurement uses a data sample of 23 million Upsilon(4S)-->B-anti-B decays collected by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric B Factory at SLAC. In this sample, we find events where one neutral B meson is fully reconstructed in a CP eigenstate containing charmonium and the flavor of the other neutral B meson is determined from its decay products. The amplitude of the CP-violating asymmetry, which in the Standard Model is proportional to sin2beta, is derived from the decay time distributions in such events. The result is sin2beta=0.34 +/- 0.20 (stat) +/- 0.05 (syst).

    CP-violation (CPV) and Time-reversal violation (TRV) are intimately related through the CPT theorem: if one of these discrete symmetries is violated the other one has to be violated in such a way to conserve CPT. Although CPV in the B0B0-bar system has been established by the B-factories, implying indirectly TRV, there is still no direct evidence of TRV. We report on the observation of TRV in the B-meson system performed with a dataset of 468 × 106 BB-bar pairs produced in Υ(4S) decays collected by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy e+e- collider at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. We also report on other CPV measurements recently performed on the B-meson system

    2016-01-01

    Beauty baryons are being observed in large number in the LHCb detector. The rich kinematics of their multibody decays are therefore becoming accessible and provide us with new opportunities to search for CP violation. We analyse the angular distributions of some three- and four-body decays of spin-$1/2$ baryons using the Jacob-Wick helicity formalism. The asymmetries that provide access to small differences of CP-odd phases between decay amplitudes of identical CP-even phases are notably discussed. The understanding gained on processes featuring specific resonant intermediate states allows us to establish which asymmetries are relevant for what purpose. It is for instance shown that some CP-odd angular asymmetries measured by the LHCb collaboration in the $\\Lambda_b \\to \\Lambda\\,\\varphi \\to p\\,\\pi\\, K^+ K^-$ decay are expected to vanish identically.

    We study the CP-violating phase of the quark sector in the $U(8)$ flavor model on $T^2/Z_N \\, (N=2,3,4,6)$ with non-vanishing magnetic fluxes, where properties of possible origins of the CP violation are investigated minutely. In this system, a non-vanishing value is mandatory in the real part of the complex modulus parameter $\\tau$ of the two-dimensional torus. On $T^2$ without orbifolding, underlying discrete flavor symmetries severely restrict the form of Yukawa couplings and it is very difficult to reproduce the observed pattern in the quark sector including the CP-violating phase $\\delta_{\\rm CP}$. In cases of multiple Higgs doublets emerging on $T^2/Z_2$, the mass matrices of the zero-mode fermions can be written in the Gaussian textures by choosing appropriate configurations of vacuum expectation values of the Higgs fields. When such Gaussian textures of mass matrices are realized, we show that all of the quark profiles, which are mass hierarchies among the quarks, quark mixing angles, and $\\delta_{\\rm...

    Violation of combined charge and parity symmetry in strangeness changing K-meson decays is shortly reviewed. The ΔS=2 Ko ↔ anti Ko transition and ΔS=1 processes K → 2π are described in the quark language. It is pointed out that even if the standard SU(3) X SU(2) X U(1) theory gives an excellent description of the present particle physics, precise measurements of exotic phenomena like CP-violation might reveal whether there is new physics beyond the standard theory

    A preliminary determination of the Dirac phase in the PMNS matrix is δ{sub PMNS}≈-(π/2). A rather accurately determined Jarlskog invariant J in the CKM matrix is close to the maximum. Since the phases in the CKM and PMNS matrices will be accurately determined in the future, it is an interesting problem to relate these two phases. This can be achieved in a families-unified grand unification if the weak CP violation is introduced spontaneously à la Froggatt and Nielsen at a high energy scale, where only one meaningful Dirac CP phase appears.

  18. Exponential parameterization of the neutrino mixing matrix - comparative analysis with different data sets and CP violation

    CERN Document Server

    Zhukovsky, Konstantin

    2016-01-01

    The exponential parameterization of Pontecorvo-Maki-Nakagawa-Sakata mixing matrix for neutrino is used for comparative analysis of different neutrino mixing data. The UPMNS matrix is considered as the element of the SU(3) group and the second order matrix polynomial is constructed for it. The inverse problem of constructing the logarithm of the mixing matrix is addressed. In this way the standard parameterization is related to the exponential parameterization exactly. The exponential form allows easy factorization and separate analysis of the rotation and the CP violation. With the most recent experimental data on the neutrino mixing (May 2016), we calculate the values of the exponential parameterization matrix for neutrinos with account for the CP violation. The complementarity hypothesis for quarks and neutrinos is demonstrated to hold, despite significant change in the neutrino mixing data. The values of the entries of the exponential mixing matrix are evaluated with account for the actual degree of the CP...

  19. How to Measure CP Violation in Neutrino Oscillation Experiments?

    1997-01-01

    We propose a new method for measuring CP violation in neutrino oscillation experiments. The idea is to isolate the term due to the CP-violating phase out of the oscillation probability by taking difference between yields of two (or three) detectors at path-lengths $L = 250 (\\frac{E}{1.35 {GeV}}) (\\frac{\\Delta m^2}{10^{-2}{eV}^2})^{-1} {km}$ and at $L/3$ (and also at $2L/3$ in the case of three detectors). We use possible hierarchies in neutrino masses suggested by the astrophysical and the cosmological observations to motivate the idea and to examine how the method works.

  20. Origin of Constrained Maximal CP Violation in Flavor Symmetry

    CERN Document Server

    He, Hong-Jian; Xu, Xun-Jie

    2015-01-01

    Current data from neutrino oscillation experiments are in good agreement with $\\delta=-\\pi/2$ and $\\theta_{23} = \\pi/4$. We define the notion of "constrained maximal CP violation" for these features and study their origin in flavor symmetry models. We give various parametrization-independent definitions of constrained maximal CP violation and present a theorem on how it can be generated. This theorem takes advantage of residual symmetries in the neutrino and charged lepton mass matrices, and states that, up to a few exceptions, $\\delta=\\pm\\pi/2$ and $\\theta_{23} = \\pi/4$ are generated when those symmetries are real. The often considered $\\mu$-$\\tau$ reflection symmetry, as well as specific discrete subgroups of $O(3)$, are special case of our theorem.

  1. Evidence of CP violation in B -> hhh charmless decays

    We present the first evidence of CP violation in the B+→ pi+pi-pi+,  B+→ K+pi+pi-, B+→ K+K-pi+ and B+→K+K-K+ decays using the 1.0 fb-1 of data collected by the LHCb experiment during 2011. The results show that the 3pi and Kpipi channels present a positive asymmetry while the KKpi and KKK modes present a negative asymmetry. We also study the variation of the CP violation effects in the phase space of each three-body decay.  We find significant inhomogeneities that reveal regions with particularly large asymmetries in the pipi and KK low mass regions in B+→pi+pi-pi+ and B+→K+K-pi+ respectively.

  4. Neutron-Antineutron Oscillation as a Signal of CP Violation

    OpenAIRE

    Berezhiani, Zurab; Vainshtein, Arkady

    2015-01-01

    Assuming the Lorentz and CPT invariances we show that neutron-antineutron oscillation implies breaking of CP along with baryon number violation -- i.e. two of Sakharov conditions for baryogenesis. The oscillation is produced by the unique operator in the effective Hamiltonian. This operator mixing neutron and antineutron preserves charge conjugation C and breaks P and T. External magnetic field always leads to suppression of oscillations. Its presence does not lead to any new operator mixing ...

  5. CP Violation: The CKM Matrix and New Physics

    OpenAIRE

    2002-01-01

    Loop corrections for physics beyond the Standard Model are computed. DWe discuss the influence of new physics on CP-violating observables. Assuming the standard model gives a correct description of tree level processes, we show how a consistent procedure can determine the parameters of the standard model and check its validity also in loop induced processes. A method to include new physics in a systematic way is sketched.

  6. Baryogenesis via leptonic CP-violating phase transition

    Pascoli, Silvia; Zhou, Ye-Ling

    2016-01-01

    We propose a new mechanism to generate a lepton asymmetry based on the vacuum CP-violating phase transition (CPPT). This approach differs from classical thermal leptogenesis as a specific seesaw model, and its UV completion, need not be specified. The lepton asymmetry is generated via the dynamically realised coupling of the Weinberg operator during the phase transition. This mechanism provides strong connections with low-energy neutrino experiments.

  7. Gluino mass and CP violation in supersymmetric models

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We consider the 'old' phenomenon of CP violation in the K0-anti K0 system which has recently received a considerable amount of interest in view of the unexpectedly long B lifetime. Being the SUSY contribution dominated by gluino (g tilde) and squark (q tilde) insertions in the box diagram, we find it appropriate to start by summarizing our knowledge on the gluino mass which plays a discriminatory role among different SUSY models.

  8. Could Large CP Violation Be Detected at Colliders?

    CERN Document Server

    Im, C J C; Malde, P

    1993-01-01

    We argue that CP--violation effects below a few tenths of a percent are probably undetectable at hadron and electron colliders. Thus only operators whose contributions interfere with tree--level Standard Model amplitudes are detectable. We list these operators for Standard Model external particles and some two and three body final state reactions that could show detectable effects. These could test electroweak baryogenesis scenarios.

    CP-violating phenomena and rare decays of B0s mesons offer interesting probes to test the quark-flavor sector of the Standard Model. In view of the many new results reported, in particular from the Large Hadron Collider, this topic received a great deal of attention in 2012. We provide an overview of the most recent experimental results and new theoretical developments, and we discuss the prospects for future exploration of the B0s meson system.

  10. Experimental possibilities for observation of CP violation in B decay

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The detection and the measurement of CP violation in the decays of B hadrons will require the accumulation of large numbers of B decays in particular exclusive modes. The potential of beauty hadroproduction experiments for obtaining these large data samples is examined in the context of various trigger and analysis strategies. The possibilities for doing such experiments at present hadron machines is compared with the potential for such experiments at the SSC. 3 refs., 3 figs., 4 tabs

  11. Quark sector CP violation of the universal seesaw model

    CERN Document Server

    Kawasaki, Ryomu; Umeeda, Hiroyuki

    2013-01-01

    We study the CP violation of universal seesaw model, especially its quark sector. The model is based on SU(2)_L \\times SU(2)_R \\times U(1)_{Y^\\prime}. In order to count the number of parameters in quark sector, we use the degree of freedom of weak basis transformation. For N(3)-generation model, the number of CP violating phase in quark sector is identified as 3N^2-3N+1 (19). We also construct nineteen CP violating weak basis invariants of Yukawa coupling matrices and SU(2) singlet quark mass matrices in the three-generation universal seesaw model. The quark interaction terms induced by neutral currents are given as an exact formula. Both of the charged current and the neutral current are expressed in terms of the mass basis by finding the transformations from weak basis to mass basis. Finally, we calculate the mixing matrix element approximately assuming that the SU(2)_R breaking scale v_R is much larger than the electro-weak breaking scale v_L.

  12. Models of neutrino mass, mixing and CP violation

    Science.gov (United States)

    King, Stephen F.

    2015-12-01

    In this topical review we argue that neutrino mass and mixing data motivates extending the Standard Model (SM) to include a non-Abelian discrete flavour symmetry in order to accurately predict the large leptonic mixing angles and {C}{P} violation. We begin with an overview of the SM puzzles, followed by a description of some classic lepton mixing patterns. Lepton mixing may be regarded as a deviation from tri-bimaximal mixing, with charged lepton corrections leading to solar mixing sum rules, or tri-maximal lepton mixing leading to atmospheric mixing rules. We survey neutrino mass models, using a roadmap based on the open questions in neutrino physics. We then focus on the seesaw mechanism with right-handed neutrinos, where sequential dominance (SD) can account for large lepton mixing angles and {C}{P} violation, with precise predictions emerging from constrained SD (CSD). We define the flavour problem and discuss progress towards a theory of favour using GUTs and discrete family symmetry. We classify models as direct, semidirect or indirect, according to the relation between the Klein symmetry of the mass matrices and the discrete family symmetry, in all cases focussing on spontaneous {C}{P} violation. Finally we give two examples of realistic and highly predictive indirect models with CSD, namely an A to Z of flavour with Pati-Salam and a fairly complete A 4 × SU(5) SUSY GUT of flavour, where both models have interesting implications for leptogenesis.

  13. Baryogenesis from Strong CP Violation and the QCD Axion

    CERN Document Server

    Servant, Geraldine

    2014-01-01

    The strong CP-violating parameter is small today as indicated by constraints on the neutron electric dipole moment. In the early universe, the QCD axion has not yet relaxed to its QCD-cancelling minimum and it is natural to wonder whether this large CP violation could be responsible for baryogenesis. We show that strong CP violation from the QCD axion can be responsible for the matter antimatter asymmetry of the universe in the context of cold EW baryogenesis if the EW phase transition is delayed below the GeV scale. This can occur naturally if the Higgs couples to a O(100) GeV dilaton, as expected in some models where the Higgs is a pseudo-Nambu Goldstone boson of a new strongly interacting sector at the TeV scale. The only new relevant ingredients beyond the Standard Model in our framework are the QCD axion and an EW scale dilaton-like scalar field. The existence of such a second scalar resonance with a mass and properties similar to the Higgs boson will soon be tested at the LHC. Our conclusions are indepe...

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Ko, Byeong Rok [Korea University (Korea, Republic of)

    2010-07-01

    We have searched for CP violation of charmed mesons in the decays D {yields} K{sup 0}{sub S} P, where D denotes D{sup 0}, D{sup +} and D{sub s}{sup +}, and P denotes the pseudo-scalar mesons {pi}{sup +}, K{sup +}, {pi}{sup 0}, {eta} and {eta}'. No evidence of CP violation in these decays is observed. We have measured the CP asymmetry difference between the Cabibbo suppressed decay D{sup +} {yields} {phi} {pi}{sup +} and the Cabibbo favored D{sub s}{sup +} {yields} {phi} {pi}{sup +} decays. The measured asymmetry is corrected for the residual asymmetry due to detector effects, and the contributions of both CP and forward-backward asymmetries are determined. We also present a measurement of D{sup 0}-anti-D{sup 0} mixing parameters in three-body D{sup 0} decays using a time-dependent Dalitz plot analysis. These results are obtained on a large data sample collected at and near the {Upsilon}(4S) resonance with the Belle detector operating at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e{sup +} e{sup -} collider.

  15. CP Violation in Correlated Production and Decay of Unstable Particles

    CERN Document Server

    Kittel, Olaf

    2012-01-01

    We study resonant CP-violating Einstein--Podolsky--Rosen correlations that may take place in the production and decay of unstable scalar particles at high-energy colliders. We show that as a consequence of unitarity and CPT invariance of the S-matrix, in 2 --> 2 scatterings mediated by mixed scalar particles, at least three linearly independent decay matrices associated with the unstable scalar states are needed to obtain non-zero CP-odd observables that are also odd under C-conjugation. Instead, for the correlated production and decay of two unstable particle systems in 2 --> 4 processes, we find that only two independent decay matrices are sufficient to induce a net non-vanishing CP-violating phenomenon. As an application of this theorem, we present numerical estimates of CP asymmetries for the correlated production and decay of supersymmetric scalar top--anti-top pairs at the LHC, and demonstrate that these could reach values of order one. As a byproduct of our analysis, we develop a novel spinorial trace ...

    2001-05-01

    The Fermilab HyperCP experiment has accumulated the world's largest sample of {xi}{sup -} and {xi}-bar{sup +} hyperon decays within two running periods in 1997 and 1999. The primary goal of the experiment is to search for direct CP violation in the decay sequences {xi}{sup -} {yields} {lambda} {pi}{sup -} {yields} p {pi}{sup -} {pi}{sup -} and {xi}-bar{sup +} {yields} {lambda}-bar {pi}{sup +} {yields} p-bar {pi}{sup +} {pi}{sup +}. A violation of CP would manifest itself as a difference between the angular distribution of the proton and the antiproton in the {lambda} and {lambda}-bar helicity frame. The amount of data is enough to reach a statistical sensitivity of 1.4 x 10{sup -4} in the CP violating asymmetry A{sub {xi}}{sub {lambda}} = ({alpha}{sub {xi}} {alpha}{sub {lambda}} - {alpha}{sub {xi}}{sub -bar} {alpha}{sub {lambda}}{sub -bar})/({alpha}{sub {xi}} {alpha}{sub {lambda}} + {alpha}{sub {xi}}{sub -bar} {alpha}{sub {lambda}}{sub -bar}). We present an analysis method used to take into account the slight differences in the production of the {xi}{sup -} and {xi}-bar{sup +} samples. A preliminary results on A{sub {xi}}{sub {lambda}} at the level of a few 10{sup -3} and based on a few percent of the 1997 data will be presented.

    The LHCb experiment recorded data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 $fb^{-1}$ during its first run of data taking. These data yield the largest samples of charmed hadrons in the world and are used to search for CP violation in the $D^0$ system. Among the many measurements performed at LHCb, a measurement of the direct CP asymmetry in $D^0 \\rightarrow K_S^0 K_S^0$ decays is presented and is found to be $A_{CP}(D^0 \\rightarrow K_S^0 K_S^0) = (-2.9 \\pm 5.2 \\pm 2.2)\\, \\%, $ where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic. This represents a significant improvement in precision over the previous measurement of this parameter. Measurements of the parameter $A^\\Gamma$, defined as the CP asymmetry of the $D^0$ effective lifetime when decaying to a CP eigenstate, are also presented. Using semi-leptonic b-hadron decays to tag the flavour of the $D^0$ meson at production with the $K^+K^-$ and $\\pi^+\\pi^-$ final states yields $A^\\Gamma(K^+K^-) = (-0.134 \\pm 0.077^{+0.026}_{-0.034})\\, \\%...

    Artuso, Marina; Lenz, Alexander

    2015-01-01

    We review experimental and theoretical aspects of CP violation in the $B_s^0$-system. In that respect we present updates for the mixing parameters of the $B_s^0$ mesons expected in the Standard Model (SM): the mass difference $\\Delta M_s^{\\rm SM} = (18.3 \\pm 2.7)$ ps$^{-1}$, the decay rate difference $\\Delta \\Gamma_s^{\\rm SM} = (0.085 \\pm 0.015)$ ps$^{-1}$, the flavour specific CP asymmetry $a_{\\rm fs}^{s, \\rm SM} = (2.22 \\pm 0.27) \\cdot 10^{-5}$ and the equivalent quantities in the $B^0$-sector. The experimental measurements of $\\Delta M_s$ and $\\Delta \\Gamma_s$ are more precise and agree very well with theoretica predictions, which can also be viewed as a proof of theoretical tools, like the Heavy Quark Expansion (HQE). CP violating studies in the $B_s^0$ system provide essential information to test the SM expectations. Mixing quantities can be used to study model independent bounds on new physics (NP) effects, yielding the familiar picture: the standard model (SM) gives the dominant contribution, while the...

    A model-independent search for direct CP violation in the Cabibbo suppressed decay $D^+ \\to K^-K^+\\pi^+$ in a sample of approximately 370,000 decays is described. The normalized Dalitz plot distributions for $D^+$ and $D^-$ are compared using four different binning schemes that are sensitive to different manifestations of CP violation.

    A time dependent analysis of CP violation in charm mesons is presented through the measurement of the observable $A_{\\Gamma}$. This observable involves precise measurements of the D0 lifetime as it decays to a CP eigenstate. The results presented are the most precise to date. No CP violation is observed.

  1. CP violation due to new ΔB = 1 amplitudes

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The authors make a systematic analysis of the effects of new physics in the B decay amplitudes on the CP asymmetries in neutral B decays. Although these are expected to be smaller than new physics effects on the mixing amplitude, they are easier to probe in some cases. The effects of new contributions to the mixing amplitude are felt universally across all decay modes, whereas the effects of new decay amplitudes could vary from mode to mode. In particular the prediction that the CP asymmetries in the B decay modes with b → c anti cs, b → c anti cd, b → c anti ud and b → s anti ss should all measure the same quantity (sin 2β in the Standard Model) could be violated

  2. Lambda-antilambda decay asymmetries and CP violation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The exclusive reaction /bar p/p → /bar Lambda/Λ is an interesting laboratory in which to study both spin physics and fundamental symmetries. The PS185 collaboration at LEAR has been exploiting this fact for the last few years in an ongoing program of hyperon-antihyperon production. The motivation for this study will be outlined and the experimental technique will be described. Spin physics aspects such as the measurements of the outgoing hyperon polarization and preliminary determinations of spin correlation coefficients will be presented. Fundamental symmetry checks such as lifetime differences between Λ and /bar Lambda/ (CPT) and decay properties (CP) will be discussed. A future experiment which is quite sensitive to CP violation in a hyperon-antihyperon system will be mentioned. 15 refs., 4 figs

    2012-03-01

    The experiments at the Tevatron, CDF and D0, have access to one of the world's largest samples of charm and beauty hadrons decays. These provide information competitive and complementary to that from dedicated flavor facilities. With the analysis of the full Run II data sample, this successful program has now reached its maturity. I review recent Tevatron flavor physics results, focusing on those that are specifically sensitive to departures from the Standard Model, such as searches for rare B decays, measurements of CP-violation in charm, and bottom-strange decays.

  4. Difficulties for a simple picture of spontaneous CP violation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We show that vertical stroke epsilon'/epsilon vertical stroke is unacceptably large in SU(2)sub(L) x U(1) models with spontaneous CP violation and natural flavor conservation in neutral Higgs-particle interactions if it is assumed that charmed quark intermediate states contribute significantly and that Msub(W)2 >> Msub(H)2 >> Msub(C)2. From the quark operator structure of box and penguin graphs involving Higgs-particle exchange, we demonstrate that pseudoscalar current matrix elements cannot be enhanced over axial-current matrix elements as has been previously assumed in similar calculations. Alternate ways to evaluate the matrix elements are employed. (orig.)

Using 1.0 fb-1 of √(s)=7 TeV pp collisions, measurements of several observables are made including the first observation of the suppressed mode B±→[π±K- Or+]DK±. CP violation in B±→DK± decays is observed with 5.8σ significance.

  6. Composite two-Higgs model with dynamical CP-violation

    Andrianov, A A; Yudichev, V L

    1996-01-01

    Quark models with four-fermion interaction including derivatives of fields are exploited as prototypes for composite-Higgs extensions of the Standard Model. In the non-trivial case of two- and four-derivative insertions the dynamical breaking of chiral symmetry occurs in two channels, giving rise to two composite Higgs doublets. For special configuration of four-fermion coupling constants the dynamical CP-violation in the Higgs sector appears as a result of complexity of two v.e.v. for Higgs doublets. In this scenario the second Higgs doublet is regarded as a radial excitation of the first one.

  7. Theoretical Aspects of Flavour and CP Violation in the Lepton Sector

    CERN Document Server

    Feruglio, Ferruccio

    2015-01-01

    We review flavour and CP violations in the lepton sector as probes of new physics beyond the standard model and its minimal extensions accommodating massive neutrinos. After recalling the main experimental bounds and the future perspectives, we summarize the limits on a set of dimension-six gauge-invariant operators, pointing to a scale of new physics much larger than the electroweak scale. If we insist on having new physics at the TeV scale, as demanded by most of the standard model extensions addressing the gauge hierarchy problem, we should rely on special mechanisms to deplete flavour and CP violations in the charged lepton sector. We comment on the capability of partial compositeness in reconciling the absence of signals with a scale of new physics accessible to the LHC.

    2016-08-01

    The exponential parameterization of the Pontecorvo-Maki-Nakagawa-Sakata mixing matrix for neutrinos is discussed. The exponential form allows easy factorization and separate analysis of the CP-violating and Majorana terms. Based upon the recent experimental data on the neutrino mixing, the values for the exponential parameterization matrix for neutrinos are determined. The matrix entries for the pure rotational part in charge of the mixing without CP violation are derived. The complementarity hypothesis for quarks and neutrinos is demonstrated. A comparison of the results based on most recent and on old data is presented. The CP-violating parameter value is estimated, based on the so far imprecise experimental indications, regarding CP violation for neutrinos. The unitarity of the exponential parameterization and the CP-violating term transform is confirmed. The transform of the neutrino mass state vector by the exponential matrix with account of CP violation is shown.

  10. Searches for New Sources of CP and T Violation at BABAR

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We present recent results from searches for new sources of CP and T violation from the B, charm, and τ sectors from BABAR. From the B sector, we search for CP violation in B decays to three kaons, and to Kℓ+ℓ−, and present the first direct observation of T violation using B0→J/ψK0. In the charm sector, we search for a T-odd correlation in D+ decays to K+K0π+π−. And in the τ sector, we measure CP violation in τ− decays to K0π−ντ. Highlights of these new results include the world's first observation of T violation that is fully experimentally independent of CP violation, and a 3.1σ deviation from the Standard Model predictions for CP violation in τ−→K0π−ντ

  12. The role of CP violating annihilations in baryogenesis - case study of the neutron portal

    CERN Document Server

    Baldes, Iason; Millar, Alexander; Petraki, Kalliopi; Volkas, Raymond R

    2014-01-01

    Many baryogenesis scenarios invoke the charge parity (CP) violating out-of-equilibrium decay of a heavy particle in order to explain the baryon asymmetry. Such scenarios will in general also allow CP violating annihilations. We study the effect of these CP violating annihilations on the final asymmetry in a neutron portal scenario. We solve the Boltzmann equations governing the evolution of the baryon number numerically and show that the CP violating annihilations play a dominant role in a significant portion of the parameter space.

    The CP violation in the D system is predicted to be an unobserved level in the Standard Model. In this paper,we describe the method of searching for CP violation decay processes with the coherently produced D0(D)0 mesons from the ψ(3770) decay. The CP violation decay processes can be searched for at the BES-Ⅲ experiment. The experimental sensitivity for searching for the CP violation can reach about a 10-4 level with a ψ(3770) data sample of about 20 fb-1

  14. Solitons in an effective theory of CP violation

    CERN Document Server

    Chandra, N; Srivastava, R

    2016-01-01

    We study an effective field theory describing CP-violation in a scalar meson sector. We write the simplest interaction that we can imagine, $${\\cal L}\\sim \\epsilon_{i_1\\cdots i_5}\\epsilon^{\\mu_1\\cdots\\mu_4}\\phi_{i_1}\\partial_{\\mu_1}\\phi_{i_2}\\partial_{\\mu_2}\\phi_{i_3}\\partial_{\\mu_3}\\phi_{i_4}\\partial_{\\mu_4}\\phi_{i_5}$$ which involves 5 scalar fields. The theory describes CP-violation only when it contains scalar fields representing mesons such as the $K^*_0$, sigma, $f_0$ or $a_0$. If the fields represent pseudo-scalar mesons, such as B, K and $\\pi$ mesons then the Lagrangian describes anomalous processes such as $KK\\to \\pi\\pi\\pi$. We speculate that the field theory contains long lived excitations corresponding to $Q$-ball type domain walls expanding through space-time. In an 1+1 dimensional, analogous, field theory we find an exact, analytic solution corresponding to such solitons. The solitons have a U(1) charge $Q$, which can be arbitrarily high, but oddly, the energy behaves as $Q^{2/3}$ for large charg...

    This thesis presents a measurement of the time-dependent asymmetry in the rate of {anti B}{sub d}{sup 0} versus B{sub d}{sup 0} decays to J/{psi}K{sub s}{sup 0}. In the context of the Standard Model this is interpreted as a measurement of the CP violation parameter sin(2{beta}). A total of 198{+-}17 B{sub d}{sup 0}/{anti B}{sub d}{sup 0} decays were observed in p{anti p} collisions at {radical}s=1.8 TeV by the CDF detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. The initial B flavor (whether B{sup 0} or {anti B}{sup 0}) is determined by a same-side flavor tagging technique. The analysis results in sin(2{beta})=1.8{+-}1.1(stat.){+-}0.3(syst.). This analysis demonstrates the feasibility of studying CP violation in the B{sup 0}-{anti B}{sup 0} system at a hadron collider. By applying the methods used in this analysis, future, higher-statistics experiments should be able to tightly constrain the parameters of the Standard Model.

  16. The leptonic Dirac CP-violating phase from sum rules

    Science.gov (United States)

    Girardi, I.; Petcov, S. T.; Titov, A. V.

    2016-05-01

    In the reference 3-neutrino mixing scheme with three light massive neutrinos, CP-violating effects in neutrino oscillations can be caused by the Dirac CP-violating phase δ present in the unitary neutrino mixing matrix U. Using the fact that U = U†eUv , where Ue and Uv are unitary matrices arising from the diagonalisation, respectively, of the charged lepton and neutrino mass matrices, we consider in a systematic way forms of Ue and Uv allowing us to express δ as a function of the neutrino mixing angles present in U and the angles contained in Uv. After obtaining sum rules for cos δ, we consider several forms of Uv dictated by, or associated with, symmetries, such as tri-bimaximal, bimaximal, etc., for which the angles in Uv are fixed. For each of these forms and forms of Ue allowing to reproduce the measured values of the neutrino mixing angles, we construct the likelihood function for cos δ, using the prospective uncertainties in the determination of the mixing angles. Our results show that the measurement of δ along with improvement of the precision on the neutrino mixing angles can provide unique information about the possible existence of a new fundamental symmetry in the lepton sector.

    The branching ratios and CP violations of the B → Dπ decays, including both the color-allowed and the color-suppressed modes, are investigated in detail within QCD framework by considering all diagrams that lead to three effective currents of two quarks. An intrinsic mass scale as a dynamical gluon mass is introduced to treat the infrared divergence caused by the soft collinear approximation in the endpoint regions, and the Cutkosky rule is adopted to deal with a physical-region singularity of the on mass-shell quark propagators. When the dynamical gluon mass μg is regarded as a universal scale, it is extracted to be around μg = 440 MeV from one of the well-measured B → Dπ decay modes. The resulting predictions for all branching ratios are in agreement with the current experimental measurements. As these decays have no penguin contributions, there are no direct CP asymmetries. Due to interference between the Cabibbo-suppressed and the Cabibbo-favored amplitudes, mixing-induced C P violations are predicted in the B → D±π+decays to be consistent with the experimental data at 1-a level. More precise measurements will be helpful to extractingweak angle 2β + γ.

  18. Mixing and CP Violation in Charm Meson Decays

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Meadows, B; /Cincinnati U.

    2010-08-26

    Mixing and CP violation (CPV ) in the neutral D system were first discussed over thirty years ago but mixing was observed for the first time only very recently. Since then, these observations have been confirmed in other experiments and in other D{sup 0} decay modes. Unlike the K, B and B{sub s} systems, for which mixing was observed years earlier, the short distance ({Delta}C = 2) amplitude contributing to mixing in the D system arises from box diagrams with down- rather than up-type quarks in the loops. The d and s components are GIM-suppressed, and the b component is suppressed by the small V{sub ub} CKM coupling. In the standard model (SM), therefore, long range, non-perturbative effects, a coherent sum over intermediate states accessible to both D{sup 0} and {bar D}{sup 0}, are the main contribution to mixing. These are hard to compute reliably, however. The phenomenon of mixing in neutral meson systems has now been observed in all flavours, but only in the past year in the D{sup 0} system. The standard model anticipated that, for the charm sector, the mixing rate would be small, and also that CP violation, either in mixing or in direct decay, would be below the present levels of observability. It is hoped that further study of these phenomena might reveal signs of new physics. A review of recently available, experimental results is given.

  19. Models of Neutrino Mass, Mixing and CP Violation

    2015-01-01

    In this topical review we argue that neutrino mass and mixing data motivates extending the Standard Model to include a non-Abelian discrete flavour symmetry in order to accurately predict the large leptonic mixing angles and CP violation. We begin with an overview of the Standard Model puzzles, followed by a description of some classic lepton mixing patterns. Lepton mixing may be regarded as a deviation from tri-bimaximal mixing, with charged lepton corrections leading to solar mixing sum rules, or tri-maximal lepton mixing leading to atmospheric mixing rules. We survey neutrino mass models, using a roadmap based on the open questions in neutrino physics. We then focus on the seesaw mechanism with right-handed neutrinos, where sequential dominance (SD) can account for large lepton mixing angles and CP violation, with precise predictions emerging from constrained SD (CSD). We define the flavour problem and discuss progress towards a theory of flavour using GUTs and discrete family symmetry. We classify models ...

  20. Soft CP violation and the global matter-antimatter symmetry of the universe

    Senjanovic, G.; Stecker, F. W.

    1980-01-01

    Scenarios for baryon production are considered within the context of SU(5) and SO(10) grand unified theories where CP violation arises spontaneously. The spontaneous CP symmetry breaking then results in a matter-antimatter domain structure in the universe. Two possible, distinct types of theories of soft CP violation are defined. In the first type the CP nonconservation originates only from the breaking of SU(2) sub L X U(1) symmetry, and in the second type, even at the unification temperature scale, CP violation can emerge as a result of symmetry breaking by the vacuum expectation values of the superheavy Higgs sector scalars.

    The problem of CP conservation and CP violation for two heavy neutrinos production in e^+e^- interaction is considered. Very convenient way of parametrization of the neutrino mass matrix, from which necessary and sufficient condition for CP conservation easily follows, is presented. Contrary to the Kobayashi-Maskawa mechanism, the effects of CP violation in the lepton sector with Majorana neutrinos can be very large. Change of the total cross section caused by CP violation can be much larger then the cross section itself.

    2013-01-01

    We discuss the formalism of two Higgs doublet model type III with CP violation from CP-even CP-odd mixing in the neutral Higgs bosons. The flavor changing interactions among neutral Higgs bosons and fermions are presented at tree level in this type of model. These assumptions allow the study rare top decays mediated by neutral Higgs bosons, particularly we are interested in $t\\rightarrow c l^+l^-$. For this process we estimated upper bounds of the branching ratios $\\textrm{Br}(t\\rightarrow c \\tau^+\\tau^-)$ of the order of $10^{-9}\\sim 10^{-7}$ for a neutral Higgs boson mass of 125 GeV and $\\tan\\beta=1$, 1.5, 2, 2.5. For the case of $t\\rightarrow c \\tau^+\\tau^-$ the number of possible events is estimated from 1 to 10 events which could be observed in future experiments at LHC with a luminosity of 300 $\\textrm{fb}^{-1}$ and 14 GeV for the energy of the center of mass. Also we estimate that the number of events for the process $t\\rightarrow c l^+l^-$ in different scenarios is of order of $2500$.

  3. CP-violation reach of an electron capture neutrino beam

    This article extends the work of Bernabeu and Espinoza by examining the CP-violation reach of a $^{150}$Dy electron capture beam through the variation of the two Lorentz boosts, the number of useful electron capture decays, the relative run time of each boost and the number of atmospheric backgrounds. The neutrinos are assumed to be sourced at CERN with an upgraded SPS and are directed towards a 440 kton Water Cerenkov detector located at the Canfranc laboratory. Two large `CP-coverage' choices for the boost pairings are found; a $\\delta$-symmetrical coverage for $(\\gamma_{1}, \\gamma_{2})$ = (280, 160) and an $\\delta$-asymmetric coverage for $(\\gamma_{1}, \\gamma_{2})$ = (440,150). With a nominal useful decay rate of $N_{\\rm ions} = 10^{18}$ per year, the $\\delta$-symmetric setup can rule out CP-conservation down to $\\sin^{2}2\\theta_{13} = 3\\cdot 10^{-4}$. To reach $\\sin^{2}2\\theta_{13} = 1\\cdot 10^{-3}$ for both $\\delta 0$ requires a useful decay rate of $N_{\\rm ions} = 6\\cdot 10^{17}$ per year.

The neutrinos are assumed to be sourced at CERN with an upgraded SPS and are directed towards a 440 kton Water Cerenkov detector located at the Canfranc laboratory.

With a nominal useful decay rate of N ions = 1018 ions per year, the δ-symmetric setup can rule out CP-conservation down to sin2 2 θ 13 = 3•10-4. To reach sin2 2 θ 13 =1•10-3 for both δ 0 requires a useful decay rate of N ions = 6•1017 ions per year.

  5. General flavor blind minimal supersymmetric standard model and CP violation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We study the implications on flavor changing neutral current and CP violating processes in the context of supersymmetric theories without a new flavor structure (flavor blind supersymmetry). The low-energy parameters are determined by the running of the soft breaking terms from the grand unified scale with supersymmetric (SUSY) phases consistent with the electric dipole moment constraints. We find that the CP asymmetry in b→sγ can reach large values potentially measurable at B factories, especially in the low BR(b→sγ) region, while the contributions to electric dipole moments are kept under control through a cancellation mechanism. We perform a fit of the unitarity triangle including all the relevant observables. In this case, no sizable deviations from the standard model expectations are found. Finally, we analyze the SUSY contributions to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon pointing out its impact on the b→sγ CP asymmetry and on the SUSY spectrum including chargino and top squark masses

  6. BOOK REVIEW: Discrete Symmetries and CP Violation: From Experiment to Theory (Oxford Graduate Texts)

    Science.gov (United States)

    Fösel, A.

    2009-03-01

    Discrete Symmetries and CP Violation: From Experiment to Theory by Marco Sozzi discusses C(harge conjugation), P(arity) and T(ime reversal) discrete symmetries and of course CP symmetry in microscopic (atomic, nuclear and particle) physics. It includes a detailed description of key or representative experiments, and major achievements and recent developments are also mentioned. Though lots of excellent textbooks already exist which cover the basics of discrete symmetries and CP violation in theory and experiment, Sozzi has fully achieved the goal of presenting a book that describes the basics of this subject in detail, from an experimental point of view as well as from theory. He also succeeds in finding links between experiments and theory, leading to a better understanding of the subject. Besides, as an experimentalist, discrete symmetries and CP violation appear to the author as ideal subjects to convey the depth and excitement of experimental `beautiful' physics, which Marco S Sozzi - in my opinion - has managed to do brilliantly. Though mainly addressed to graduate students, the book may also be useful to undergraduates (by skipping some of the more advanced sections and utilizing the brief introduction to some topics in the appendices) and to young researchers looking for a wider modern overview of the issues related to CP symmetry. At the end of each chapter, further reading sections are conveniently provided for the reader to find relevant literature for further studies. Problems to solve at the end of each chapter act as 'little tests'. Unfortunately, their solutions are currently absent: perhaps a publication that includes them is planned in the near future. To conclude, the book succeeds in being a complete and self-consistent text describing in up-to-date detail the investigation of discrete symmetries in sub-atomic physics. It also emphasizes the concepts and ingenuity behind many delicate, careful, and by all means 'beautiful' experiments.

  7. CP violation in bilinear R-parity violation and its consequences for the early universe

    2014-06-15

    Supersymmetric models with bilinear R-parity violation (BRpV) provide a framework for neutrino masses and mixing angles to explain neutrino oscillation data. We consider CP violation within the new physical phases in BRpV and discuss their effect on the generation of neutrino masses and the decays of the lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP), being a light neutralino with mass ∝100 GeV, at next-to-leading order. The decays affect the lepton and via sphaleron transitions the baryon asymmetry in the early universe. For a rather light LSP, asymmetries generated before the electroweak phase transition via e.g. the Affleck-Dine mechanism are reduced up to two orders of magnitude, but are still present. On the other hand, the decays of a light LSP themselves can account for the generation of a lepton and baryon asymmetry, the latter in accordance to the observation in our universe, since the smallness of the BRpV parameters allows for an out-of-equilibrium decay and sufficiently large CP violation is possible consistent with experimental bounds from the non-observation of electric dipole-moments.

    2002-01-01

    We reconstruct the neutrino mass matrix in the flavor basis, using all available experimental data from neutrino oscillations. Majorana nature of neutrinos, normal mass hierarchy (ordering) and validity of the LMA MSW solution of the solar neutrino problem are assumed. We study dependences of the mass matrix elements, $m_{\\alpha\\beta}$, on the CP violating Dirac, $\\delta$, and Majorana, $\\rho$, $\\sigma$, phases, for different values of the mixing angle $\\theta_{13}$ and of the absolute mass scale, $m_1$. The contours of constant mass in the $\\rho-\\sigma$ plane have been constructed for all $m_{\\alpha\\beta}$. Possible structures of the mass matrix have been analyzed. We identify regions of parameters in which the matrix has (i) a structure with the dominant $\\mu\\tau$-block, (ii) various hierarchical structures, (iii) structures with special ordering or equalities of elements, (iv) the democratic form. In certain cases the matrix can be parameterized by powers of a unique expansion (ordering) parameter $\\lambda...

    Loo, K. K.; Novikov, N. Yu; Smirnov, M. V.; Trzaska, W. H.; Wurm, M.

    2016-05-01

    We propose to probe both the CPT and CP violation together with the search for sterile neutrinos in one do-it-all experiment. This omnibus experiment would utilize neutrino oscillometry with large scintillator detectors like LENA, JUNO or RENO-50 and manmade radioactive sources similar to the ones used by the GALLEX experiment. Our calculations indicate that such an experiment is realistic and could be performed in parallel to the main research plan for JUNO, LENA, or RENO-50. Assuming as the starting point the values of the oscillation parameters indicated by the current global fit (in 3 active + 1 sterile scenario) and requiring at least 5 sigma confidence level, we estimate that with the proposed experiment we would be able to detect CPT mass anomalies of the order of 1% or larger.

    2005-01-01

    In this decade, the exploration of CP violation is governed by the B-meson system, where non-leptonic decays play an outstanding role. To set the stage, we have first a look at the main strategies to circumvent the calculation of the relevant hadronic matrix elements in these studies, and discuss popular avenues for physics beyond the Standard Model to enter the roadmap of quark-flavour physics. We are then well prepared to analyze puzzles in the data for B -> phi K and B -> pi K decays, and to discuss b -> d penguin processes, which represent a new territory for the B-factory studies. Finally, we turn to the physics potential of the Bs-meson system, which can be fully exploited at the LHC.

    2014-01-01

    We show that the experimental data on $|V_{ub}|$ in various $B$ meson decay modes suggest a possibility of $CP$-violating right-handed current in the $b\\to u$ transition. Its consequences in $B\\to\\pi\\pi,\\,\\rho\\rho,\\,DK$ are examined and compared with experimental results in order to clarify possible signals of the $CP$ violation in these decay modes. As a result, we find that the $CP$-violating right-handed current is consistent with current experimental data. Its signal might be discovered by precise $CP$ measurements in future experiments.

    1997-01-01

    We investigate, within the framework of three generations of neutrinos, the effects of CP violation in long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments. We aim at illuminating the global feature of the interplay between genuine effect due to the CP violating phase and a fake one due to the earth matter effect. To this goal, we develop a formalism based on the adiabatic approximation and perturbative treatment of the matter effect which allows us to obtain approximate analytic expressions of the oscillation probabilities. We present an order-of-magnitude estimation and a detailed numerical computation of the absolute and the relative magnitudes of the CP violations under the mass hierarchy suggested by the atmospheric neutrino anomaly and the cosmological dark matter. We find that the genuine CP violating effect is at most $\\sim$ 1%, and the matter effect dominates over the intrinsic CP violation only in a region of parameters where the oscillation probability of $\

    Godbole, Rohini M; Mohan, Kirtimaan A; White, Christopher D

    2014-01-01

    We analyse the hVV (V = W, Z) vertex in a model independent way using Vh production. To that end , we consider possible corrections to the Standard Model Higgs Lagrangian, in the form of higher dimensional operators which parametrise the effects of new physics. In our analysis, we pay special attention to linear observables that can be used to probe CP violation in the same. By considering the associated production of a Higgs boson with a vector boson (W or Z), we use jet substructure methods to define angular observables which are sensitive to new physics effects, including an asymmetry which is linearly sensitive to the presence of CP odd effects. We demonstrate how to use these observables to place bounds on the presence of higher dimensional operators, and quantify these statements using a log likelihood analysis. Our approach allows one to probe separately the hZZ and hWW vertices, involving arbitrary combinations of BSM operators, at the Large Hadron Collider.

  16. Top Quark Phenomenology in CP-Violating Supersymmetric Models

    Science.gov (United States)

    Moreno Briceno, Alexander

    The Standard Model (SM) of particle physics so far has successfully described all measurements of phenomena at the subatomic level of ordinary matter at very high precision. The theoretical developments and experimental observations during the last 50 years, including the long sought and recently observed SM Higgs-like boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), have provided us with a framework to understand the strong and the electroweak interactions between fermions, gauge bosons and the scalar boson, the Higgs boson, which is called the SM. However, the SM is considered to be incomplete. It does not provide a framework to include gravity and it does not provide an explanation for a number of observations such as the baryon asymmetry of the Universe (BAU), neutrino oscillations and dark matter. One possible extension of the SM is Supersymmetry, which provides for instance a dark matter candidate. No direct or indirect evidence of Supersymmetry has been observed so far. Searches for supersymmetric particles at high energy collider experiments, for instance, have set limits on parameters of the minimal supersymmetric extension of the SM (MSSM). Supersymmetry may also affect the properties of SM particles through their virtual presence in higher order corrections in perturbation theory. Here we study indirect, i.e. virtual effects, of Supersymmetry in the production of top quark pairs at the LHC. In particular, we investigate possible CP violating effects due to one loop corrections to top-quark pair production at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in the context of the complex (MSSM) with minimal flavor violation (MFV). We include the complete supersymmetric QCD as well as supersymmetric electroweak contributions to the two main top-quark pair production mechanisms at the LHC, namely quark-antiquark annihilation, qq → tt, and gluon fusion, gg → tt. At the level of the top quarks, we study in detail spin-spin correlating observables that are sensitive to CP

    With the time dependant CP asymmetry in $B_d(t) \\to \\psi K_S$ well measured, the most powerful method to search for {\\em direct} CP violation in $B_d$ decays is to analyze whether the CP asymmetry of other transitions like $B_d(t) \\to \\pi ^+ \\pi ^-, \\eta ^{\\prime}K_S$ etc. can be described by a $sin$ term taken from $B_d(t) \\to \\psi K_S$ and without a $cos$ term. The failure of such a constrained fit would establish direct CP violation (even if no CP asymmetry were observed in these other modes).

    This report summarizes the final results from the OPAL collaboration on searches for neutral Higgs bosons predicted by the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). CP-conserving and for the first time at LEP CP-violating scenarios are studied. New scenarios are also included, which aim to set the stage for Higgs searches at future colliders. The results are based on the data collected with the OPAL detector at e+e- centre-of-mass energies up to 209 GeV. The data are consistent with the prediction of the Standard Model with no Higgs boson produced. Model-independent limits are derived for the cross-section of a number of events topologies motivated by prediction of the MSSM. Limits on Higgs boson masses and other MSSM parameters are obtained for a number of representative MSSM benchmark scenarios. For example, in the CP-conserving scenario mh-max where the MSSM parameters are adjusted to predict the largest range of values for mh at each tan beta, and for a top quark mass of 174.3 GeV, the domain 0.784.5 ...

    2014-01-01

    The study of charmless two-body B decays provides valuable information for testing the Cabibbo- Kobayashi-Maskawa paradigm of CP violation in the Standard Model. In addition, as the contri- bution of loop diagrams to the decay amplitudes are sizeable, the CP violation observables may be sensitive to physics beyond the Standard Model. In this paper we present the latest measurements performed by the LHCb Collaboration in this sector. Of particular note are the first evidence of the B 0 ! p ̄ p decay, the best measurement to date of the direct CP asymmetry of the B + ! K 0 S K + decay, the first observation of CP violation in the decays of the B 0 s mesons with the measure- ment of A CP ( B 0 s ! p + K ) and the first measurement of the coefficients of the time-dependent CP asymmetry of the B 0 s ! K + K decay.

    In 2008, Kobayashi and Maskawa were awarded the Nobel Prize for the theory of CP violation. I would like to invite you to a historical tour of CP violation. A special emphasis is made on one curious fact. The way the Mother Nature has shown us CP violation is like presenting us with a beautiful box. This box contains the treasure which forms the code to discover the ultimate theory explaining the secret of matter-antimatter asymmetry. I will show you the box and the treasure.

    2015-01-01

    We explore possible asymmetric dark matter models using CP violating scatterings to generate an asymmetry. In particular, we introduce a new model, based on DM fields coupling to the SM Higgs and lepton doublets, $\\overline{L}H$, and explore its UV completions. We study the CP violation and asymmetry formation of this model, to demonstrate that it is capable of producing the correct abundance of dark matter and the observed matter-antimatter asymmetry. Crucial to achieving this is the introduction of interactions which violate CP with a $T^{2}$ dependence.

We find that the $CP$ violation can be enhanced by $\\rho-\\omega$ mixing when the invariant masses of the $\\pi^+\\pi^-$ pairs are in the vicinity of the $\\omega$ resonance. For the decay process $B^+_{c}\\rightarrow D^+\\rho^0(\\omega) \\rightarrow D^+\\pi^+\\pi^-$, the maximum $CP$ violation can reach 7.5 {\\%}.

    We explore possible asymmetric dark matter models using CP violating scatterings to generate an asymmetry. In particular, we introduce a new model, based on DM fields coupling to the SM Higgs and lepton doublets, a neutrino portal, and explore its UV completions. We study the CP violation and asymmetry formation of this model, to demonstrate that it is capable of producing the correct abundance of dark matter and the observed matter-antimatter asymmetry. Crucial to achieving this is the introduction of interactions which violate CP with a T{sup 2} dependence.

    In the CP violating supersymmetric extension of the standard model with local gauged baryon and lepton symmetries(BLMSSM), there are new CP violating sources which can give new contributions to the quark electric dipole moment (EDM). Considering the CP violating phases, we analyze the EDMs of the quarks c and t. We take into account the contributions from the one loop diagrams. The numerical results are analyzed with some assumptions on the relevant parameter space. The numerical results for the c and t EDMs can reach large values.

    We report the results of a recent study on D{sup 0}- anti D{sup 0} mixing and argue that currently a CP violating weak phase of the order of some per mille can not be excluded in the Standard Model. Our work relies on a short-distance analysis of the {Delta}C=2 Hamiltonian, using the framework of Heavy Quark Expansion (HQE), an expansion in powers of the inverse charm quark mass. We demonstrate that, as expected, the dominant contribution is related to effects of SU(3) flavour symmetry breaking present in higher orders of the HQE: they appear for the first time in meson-antimeson transitions with an intermediate state coupling to the sea quark background of the meson, associated with operators of dimension 10 and 12. A factorisation approach is used to simplify the operator basis. Due to a lifting of GIM suppression by one power of m{sub s}/m{sub c}, the contribution to y={Delta}{Gamma}/2{Gamma} is found to exceed that of the formally leading dimension six by a factor close to ten.

    We reconstruct the neutrino mass matrix in flavor basis, in the case of inverted mass hierarchy (ordering), using all available experimental data on neutrino masses and oscillations. We analyze the dependence of the matrix elements m_{alpha beta} on the CP violating Dirac, delta, and Majorana, rho and sigma, phases, for different values of the absolute mass scale. We find that the present data admit various structures of the mass matrix: (i) hierarchical structures with a set of small (zero) elements; (ii) structures with equalities among various groups of elements: e-row and/or mu tau-block elements, diagonal and/or off-diagonal elements; (iii) ``democratic'' structure. We find values of phases for which these structures are realized. The mass matrix elements can anti-correlate with flavor: inverted partial or complete flavor alignment is possible. For various structures of the mass matrix we identify possible underlying symmetry. We find that the mass matrix can be reconstructed completely only in particula...

  7. CP violation and Kaon weak matrix elements from Lattice QCD

    Garron, Nicolas

    2015-01-01

    In this short review, I present the recent lattice computations of kaon weak matrix elements relevant to $K \\to \\pi\\pi$ decays and neutral kaon mixing. These matrix elements are key to the theoretical determination of the CP violation parameters $\\epsilon$ and $\\epsilon'$ . Impressive progress have been achieved recently, in particular the first realistic computation of $\\epsilon'/\\epsilon$ with physical kinematics has been reported in [1]. The novelty is the $\\Delta I = 1/2$ channel, whereas the $\\Delta I = 3/2$ contribution is now computed at several values of the lattice spacing and extrapolated to the continuum limit. I will also present the status of $B_K$ and discuss its error budget, with a particular emphasis on the perturbative error. Finally I will review the matrix elements of neutral kaon mixing beyond the standard model and will argue that the discrepancy observed by different collaborations could be explained by the renormalisation procedure of the relevant four-quark operators.

  8. CP Violation in hadronic B-decays at LHCb

    2011-01-01

    The LHCb Experiment is an experiment dedicated to precision measurements of CP violation and rare decays in the heavy flavour sector. In $b$-physics LHCb profits from the large $b\\bar{b}$ production cross section that gives access to a high statistics sample of the full spectrum of $b$-hadrons. Due to the very large total cross section an effective on-line event selection is required where the rate is reduced by a first level hardware trigger and further by two levels of software triggers. LHCb is specifically adapted to trigger on the hadronic final states discussed in this paper which is particularly difficult in the high-multiplicity environment of a hadron machine. The measurements of hadronic B-decays in LHCb can roughly be divided into two classes, decays dominated by tree diagrams and decays with a significant contribution from loop processes. The former is generally insensitive to processes beyond the Standard Model (SM), whereas the latter is not. The tree amplitude of decays into final states conta...

  9. Canonical Constraints on Leptonic Cp Violation using UHCR neutrino fluxes

    It is shown that one can in principle constrain the CP-violating parameter delta from measurements of four independant |V_{ij}|^2, or three of them and a ratio, in the leptonic sector. To quantify our approach, using unitarity, we derive simple expressions in terms of four independant |V_{ij}|^2 for cos(delta) and an expression for sin^2(delta) from J^2. Thus, depending on the values of |V_{ij}| and their accuracy, we can set meaningful limits on |delta|. To illustrate numerically, if |V_{u1}|^2 is close to 0.1 with a 10% precision, and if |V_{e3}^2 is larger than 0.005 and for values of |V_{e2}|^2 and |V_{u3}|^2 that stay within +-0.1 of the current experimental data leads to a bound pi/2 < |delta| < pi. Alternatively, a certain combination of parameters with values of |V_{e3}|^2 larger than 0.01 leads to a closed bound of 73 < |delta| < 103. In general, we find that over most of the parameter space, delta is least sensitive to |V_{e3}|^2. With just three independant measurements (solar, atmosphe...

  10. Probing CP violation in neutrino oscillations with neutrino telescopes

    2007-01-01

    Measurements of flavor ratios of astrophysical neutrino fluxes are sensitive to the two yet unknown mixing parameters $\\theta_{13}$ and $\\delta$ through the combination $\\sin\\theta_{13}\\cos\\delta$. We extend previous studies by considering the possibility that neutrino fluxes from more than a single type of sources will be measured. We point out that, if reactor experiments establish a lower bound on $\\theta_{13}$, then neutrino telescopes might establish an upper bound on $|\\cos\\delta|$ that is smaller than one, and by that prove that CP is violated in neutrino oscillations. Such a measurement requires several favorable ingredients to occur: (i) $\\theta_{13}$ is not far below the present upper bound; (ii) The uncertainties in $\\theta_{12}$ and $\\theta_{23}$ are reduced by a factor of about two; (iii) Neutrino fluxes from muon-damped sources are identified, and their flavor ratios measured with accuracy of order 10% or better. For the last condition to be achieved with the planned km^3 detectors, the neutrino...

    We report on a search for direct CP asymmetry in the singly Cabibbo-suppressed decay D+- --> K+ K- pi+- using a data sample of 476 fb-1 accumulated with the BaBar detector running at and just below the Y(4S) resonance. The CP-violating decay rate asymmetry A_CP is determined to be (0.35 +- 0.30 +- 0.15)%. Model-dependent and model-independent Dalitz plot analysis techniques are used to search for CP-violating asymmetries in the various intermediate states.

  12. The CP violation beyond the SM Higgs and theoretical predictions of electric dipole moment

    CERN Document Server

    Bian, Ligong

    2016-01-01

    The CP-violating phase may arise beyond the SM Higgs sectors. Due to the possible cancellation mechanism in the electric dipole moment (EDM) contributions mediated by the CP-violating Higgs sectors, the CP violation may escape the current and even the future constraints of the eEDM measurements. The cancellations in the quark and chromo-EDMs driven by the same sources alleviates the constraints of the neutron and diamagnetic atom EDM measurements. This property can be induced by the mass degeneracy of two heavy Higgs bosons. On the other hand, the diamagnetic atom EDM experiments can be more competitive to constrain or detect the CP-violating phases in this scenario. We explore this point in the framework of the type-II two-Higgs-doublet model and the minimal supersymmetric Standard Model.

We find 4372 +/- pi+82 B0 -> K+pi- decays and measure the direct CP-violating charge asymmetry -> K+Akpi = -0.107 +/- 0.018 (stat) +0.007-0.004 (syst), which excludes the CP-conserving hypothesis with a significance of 5.5 standard deviations. In the same sample we find 1139 +/- 49 B0 -> pi+pi- decays and measure the CP-violating asymmetries Spipi = -0.60 +/- 0.11 (stat) +/- 0.03 (syst) and Cpipi = -0.21 +/- 0.09 (stat) +/- 0.02 (syst). CP conservation in B0 -> pi+pi- (Spipi=Cpipi=0) is excluded at a confidence level 1-C.L. = 8 * 10^{-8}, corresponding to 5.4 standard deviations.

  16. CP Violation in Trilinear Neutral Gauge Boson Couplings Via the Anomalous tcZ Coupling

    Science.gov (United States)

    Moyotl, A.; Tavares-Velasco, G.

    2008-07-01

    Trilinear Neutral Gauge Boson Couplings (TNGBCs), namely ZZZ, ZZγ, and Zγγ may be highly sensitive to any new physics effects as their amplitude is extremely suppressed in any renormalizable theory such as the standard model (SM), where these class of couplings arise up to the one-loop level. Even more, in the SM, CP-odd TNGBCs are more suppressed than CP-even ones as the former are absent at the one loop level. This opens up the window to examine CP-violating effects on TNGBCs induced by new sources of CP-violation. Along these lines, we analyze the possible CP-violation on TNGBCS induced by the most general renormalizable tcZ coupling.

    We analyse the properties of generic models based on an SU(3) family symmetry providing a full description of quark charged lepton and neutrino masses and mixing angles. We show that a precise fit of the resulting fermion textures is consistent with CP being spontaneously broken in the flavour sector. The CP violating phases are determined by the scalar potential and we discuss how symmetries readily lead to a maximal phase controlling CP violation in the quark sector. In a specific model the CP violation to be expected in the neutrino sector is related to that in the quark sector and we determine this relation for two viable models. In addition to giving rise to the observed structure of quark and lepton masses this class of model solves both the CP and flavour problems normally associated with supersymmetric models. The flavour structure of the soft supersymmetry breaking terms is controlled by the family symmetry and we analyse some of the related phenomenological implications.

A non-zero value in the asymmetry parameter A, defined in terms of the decay parameter products {alpha}{sub {Xi}}{alpha}{sub {Lambda}} and {alpha}{sub {bar {Xi}}}{alpha}{sub {bar {Lambda}}}, would be unambiguous evidence for direct CP violation. The first data-taking run finished at the end of 1997 and accumulated over one billion {Xi}{sup {minus}} and {bar {Xi}}{sup +} decays. A sensitivity in A of {approx}10{sup {minus}4} is expected. A review of CP violation in hyperon decays is given, the {ital HyperCP} detector is described, and the status of the data analysis is discussed. {copyright} {ital 1999 American Institute of Physics.}

    For the general Two-Higgs-Doublet model, we present conditions for having spontaneous CP violation, in terms of physical masses and couplings. These relations involve the charged-Higgs mass, its cubic couplings with neutral scalars and quartic coupling, and become particularly simple in the alignment limit. In the simplified model with softly broken $Z_2$ symmetry, some deviation from alignment is required for spontaneous CP violation to be present.

    In this paper, we describe the physics beyond the Standard Model with respect to CP violation and baryon asymmetry. We describe and discuss some general model-independant considerations for new effects in B mixing and decays. A review on CP violation in the $B^0$ and $K^0$ mesons systems is given, which, we hope may familiarize new Belle members in the basic ingredients of this topic.

    We give a description of why the existence of a fourth generation is likely to provide enough CP violation for baryogenesis, and trace how this observation came about. We survey the current experimental and theoretical pursuits and outline a research agenda, touching upon unitarity violation and very heavy chiral quarks, and comment on how the electroweak phase transition picture might be altered.

  2. Looking for Novel CP-Violating Effects in $B \\to K^{*}l^{+}l^{-}$

    The CP-violating asymmetries in the exclusive decay B->K^*l^+l^- (l=e,mu,tau) are predicted to be exceedingly small in the standard model (SM), thereby offering an opportunity to assess various new physics scenarios. We derive quantitative predictions for various integrated observables in B->K^*mu^+mu^- decay in the presence of physics beyond the SM with additional CP phases and an extended operator basis. In particular, a model-independent analysis of CP asymmetries that require the presence of unitarity phases, in addition to CP violation, is performed. We find that in the low dimuon invariant mass region 2m_mus gamma rate and the upper limit on BR(B^0->K^{*0}mu^+mu^-), CP-violating effects of a few per cent are estimated, even in the presence of new physics with CP phases of O(1). By contrast, in the high dimuon invariant mass region M_{psi'}< M_{mu^+mu^-}<(M_B-M_{K^*}) significant CP-violating effects are possible. Given a branching ratio of 1.8 x 10^{-6}, the CP asymmetries can be quite substantial...

    We discuss the use of fermion polarization for studying neutral Higgs bosons at a photon collider. To this aim we construct polarization asymmetries which can isolate the contribution of a Higgs boson in → $f\\bar{f}$, = /, from that of the QED continuum. This can help in getting information on the coupling in case is a CP eigenstate. We also construct CP-violating asymmetries which can probe CP mixing in case has indeterminate CP. Furthermore, we take the MSSM with CP violation as an example to demonstrate the potential of these asymmetries in a numerical analysis. We find that these asymmetries are sensitive to the presence of a Higgs boson as well as its CP properties over a wide range of MSSM parameters.

    Motivated by the 3.8{sigma} deviation from no CP violation hypothesis for the CP asymmetry (CPA) difference between D{sup 0}{yields}K{sup +}K{sup -} and D{sup 0}{yields}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}, reported recently by LHCb and CDF, we investigate the CP violating effect due to the left-right (LR) mixing in the general LR symmetric model. In particular, we show that the large CPA difference could be explained in the non-manifest LR model.

    A model-independent search for direct CP violation in the Cabibbo suppressed decay $D^+ \\to K^- K^+\\pi^+$ in a sample of approximately 370,000 decays is carried out. The data were collected by the LHCb experiment in 2010 and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 35 pb$^{-1}$. The normalized Dalitz plot distributions for $D^+$ and $D^-$ are compared using four different binning schemes that are sensitive to different manifestations of CP violation. No evidence for CP asymmetry is found.

    The model of neutrino mass matrix with minimal texture is now tightly constrained by experiment so that it can yield a prediction for the phase of CP violation. This phase is predicted to lie in the range $\\delta_{CP}=0.77\\pi - 1.24\\pi$. If neutrino oscillation experiment would find the CP violation phase outside this range, this means that the minimal-texture neutrino mass matrix, the element of which is all real, fails and the neutrino mass matrix must be complex, i.e., the phase must be present that is responsible for leptogenesis.

    We observe evidence for CP violation in the decay $D^+\\rightarrow K^0_S\\pi^+$ using a data sample with an integrated luminosity of 977 fb$^{-1}$ collected by the Belle detector at the KEKB $e^+e^-$ asymmetric-energy collider. The CP asymmetry in the decay is measured to be $(-0.363\\pm0.094\\pm0.067)%$, which is 3.2 standard deviations away from zero, and is consistent with the expected CP violation due to the neutral kaon in the final state.

    2015-01-01

    Several baryons containing a heavy b-quark, the b-baryons, have been discovered. The charmless two-body decays of b-baryons can provide a new platform for CP violating studies in a similar way as charmless two-body decays of B-meson. In b-baryon decays there are new CP violating observable related to baryon polarization. We show that in the flavor $SU(3)$ limit there exist relations involve different combinations of the decay amplitudes compared with those in CP violating rate asymmetry. These new relations therefore provide interesting tests for the mechanism of CP in the standard model (SM) and flavor $SU(3)$ symmetry. Future data from LHCb can test these relations.

    In this proceeding, I discuss results from the BaBar and Belle collaborations for searches of direct CP violation in the singly Cabibbo-suppressed decay $\\D^\\pm\\to K^+K^-\\pi^\\pm$ from $e^+e^-$ annihilation data collected at a center-of-mass energy at or just below the \\Y4S resonance. The Belle collaboration measures the CP asymmetry as a function of the production angle of the $D^\\pm$ meson in the quasi two-body $\\D^\\pm\\to\\phi\\pi^\\pm$ decay. The Babar experiment studies the entire phase-space with model-independent and model-dependent Dalitz plot analysis techniques to search for CP-violating asymmetries in the various intermediate states, in addition to a phase-space integrated measurement as a function of the production angle. No evidence for CP violation is reported from either experiment.

    A search for direct $CP$ violation in $D^0\\rightarrow h^-h^+$ (where $h=K$ or $\\pi$) is presented using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb$^{-1}$ collected in 2011 by LHCb in $pp$ collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. The analysis uses $D^0$ mesons produced in inclusive semileptonic $b$-hadron decays to the $D^0\\mu X$ final state, where the charge of the accompanying muon is used to tag the flavour of the $D^0$ meson. The difference in the $CP$-violating asymmetries between the two decay channels is measured to be \\begin{equation} \\Delta A_{CP} = A_{CP}(K^-K^+)-A_{CP}(\\pi^-\\pi^+) = (0.49\\pm 0.30\\,\\rm{(stat)} \\pm 0.14\\,\\rm{(syst)})\\% \\ . \

  12. CP-violating Higgs boson mixing in chargino production at the muon collider

    Kittel, Olaf

    2008-01-01

    We study the pair-production of charginos in the CP-violating Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model at center-of-mass energies around the heavy neutral Higgs boson resonances. If these resonances are nearly degenerate, as it can happen in the Higgs decoupling limit, radiatively induced scalar-pseudoscalar transitions can be strongly enhanced. The resulting mixing in the Higgs sector leads to large CP-violating effects, and a change of their mass spectrum. For longitudinally polarized muon beams, we analyze CP asymmetries which are sensitive to the interference of the two heavy neutral Higgs bosons. We present a detailed numerical analysis of the cross sections, chargino branching ratios, and the CP observables. We obtain sizable CP-asymmetries, which would be accessible in future measurements at a muon collider. Especially for intermediate values of the parameter \\tan\\beta, where the largest branching ratios of Higgs bosons into charginos are expected, this process allows to analyze the Higgs sector propertie...

    2001-01-01

    We study the elastic scattering of the lightest neutralino with a nucleus in the framework of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) with explicit flavor preserving CP violation, including the one-loop CP-violating neutral Higgs-boson mixing effects induced dominantly by the CP phases in the top and bottom (s)quark sectors. We construct the most general form of the effective Lagrangian for the neutralino-nucleus scattering in the limit of vanishing momentum transfers and then we perform a comprehensive analysis of the effects of the complex CP phases on the mass spectra of the lightest neutralino, neutral Higgs bosons and top squarks, and on the the spin-dependent and spin-independent neutralino-nucleus scattering cross section for three neucleus targets F, Si and Ge. The CP phases can reduce or enhance the neutralino-nucleus cross sections significantly, depending on the values of the real parameters in the MSSM.

    We study the potential observation at the LHC of CP-violating effects in stop production and subsequent cascade decays, gg{yields}t{sub i}t{sub i}, t{sub i}{yields}t{chi}{sub j}{sup 0}, {chi}{sub j}{sup 0}{yields}{chi}{sub 1}{sup 0}l{sup +}l{sup -}, within the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. We study T-odd asymmetries based on triple products between the different decay products. There may be a large CP asymmetry at the parton level, but there is a significant dilution at the hadronic level after integrating over the parton distribution functions. Consequently, even for scenarios where large CP intrinsic asymmetries are expected, the measurable asymmetry is rather small. High luminosity and precise measurements of masses, branching ratios and CP asymmetries may enable measurements of the CP-violating parameters in cascade decays at the LHC. (orig.)

    We measure the direct CP-violating parameter A_CP for the decay of the charged charm meson, D+ -> K-pi+pi+ (and charge conjugate), using the full 10.4 fb-1 sample of ppbar collisions at sqrt(s) = 1.96 TeV collected by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. We extract the raw reconstructed charge asymmetry by fitting the invariant mass distributions for the sum and difference of charge-specific samples. This quantity is then corrected for detector-related asymmetries using data-driven methods and for possible physics asymmetries (from B -> D processes) using input from Monte Carlo simulation. We measure A_CP = [-0.16 +- 0.15 (stat.) +- 0.09 (syst.)]%, which is consistent with zero, as expected from the standard model prediction of CP conservation, and is the most precise measurement of this quantity to date

  17. The Proceedings of the 27th SLAC Summer Institute on CP Violation: In and Beyond the Standard Model (SSI 1999)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The special features of CP violation in the Standard Model are presented. The significance of measuring CP violation in B, K and D decays is explained. The predictions of the Standard Model for CP asymmetries in B decays are analyzed in detail. Then, four frameworks of new physics are reviewed: (1) Supersymmetry provides an excellent demonstration of the power of CP violation as a probe of new physics. (2) Left-right symmetric models are discussed as an example of an extension of the gauge sector. CP violation suggests that the scale of LRS breaking is low. (3) the variety of extensions of the scalar sector are presented and their unique CP violating signatures are emphasized. (4) Vector-like down quarks are presented as an example of an extension of the fermion sector. Their implications for CP asymmetries in B decays are highly interesting

    We present a model-independent analysis of CP violation, inspired by recent experimental observations, in charmed meson decays. The topological diagram approach is used to study direct CP asymmetries for singly Cabibbo-suppressed two-body hadronic decays of charmed mesons. We extract the magnitudes and relative phases of the corresponding topological amplitudes from available experimental information. In order to get more precise and reliable estimates of direct CP asymmetries, we take into account contributions from all possible strong penguin amplitudes, including the internal $b$-quark penguin contributions. We also study flavor SU(3) symmetry breaking effects in these decay modes and consequently, predict direct CP asymmetries of unmeasured modes.

    2011-01-01

    We study an extension of the Higgs sector of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), considering the effects of new degrees of freedom at the TeV scale, and allowing for sources of CP violation beyond the MSSM (BMSSM). We analyze the impact of the BMSSM sources of CP violation on the Higgs collider phenomenology and on low energy flavor and CP violating observables. We identify distinct Higgs collider signatures that cannot be realized, either in the case without CP violating phases or in the CP violating MSSM, and investigate the prospects to probe them at the Tevatron and the LHC. The most striking benchmark scenario has three neutral Higgs bosons that all decay dominantly into W boson pairs and that are well within the reach of the 7 TeV LHC run. On the other hand, we also present scenarios with three Higgs bosons that have masses M_Hi > 150 GeV and decay dominantly into b bbar. Such scenarios are much more challenging to probe and can even lie completely outside the reach of the 7 TeV LHC run. W...

  20. Search for CP violation in B0s to Jpsi Phi

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    2008-12-01

    The CDF experiment, which uses p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.9 TeV produced at the Fermilab Tevatron, is unique in its ability to observe all flavors of B hadrons and measure their properties. Among them, CP violation is of fundamental interest. In the B{sup +} and B{sup 0} systems, measurements of CP violation parameters performed essentially at B factories have borne out the predictions of CKM model. Little is known, experimentally, about CP violation in the B{sub s}{sup 0} system. The standard model predicts very little CP violation there, thus any nonzero measurement could be an indication of new physics. In this thesis, we will report on the very first flavor-tagged analysis of approximately 2000 B{sub s}{sup 0} {yields} J/{psi}{phi} decays reconstructed in a 1.35 fb{sup -1} data sample collected at CDF. This channel is sensitive not only to the width difference {Delta}{Lambda} in the B{sub s}{sup 0} system but also to the CP violation parameter {beta}{sub s}. The final result we obtain is a confidence region in the two dimensional space of {beta}{sub s} and {Delta}{Lambda}. Assuming the standard model predictions of {beta}{sub s} and {Delta}{Lambda}, the probability is 15%, corresponding to 1.5 Gaussian standard deviations.

  1. New ambiguity in probing CP violation in neutrino oscillations

    Miranda, O G; Valle, J W F

    2016-01-01

    If neutrinos get mass a la seesaw the mixing matrix describing neutrino oscillations can be effectively non-unitary. We show that in this case the neutrino appearance probabilities involve a new CP phase, phi, associated to non-unitarity. This leads to an ambiguity in extracting the "standard" three--neutrino phase delta_CP, which can survive even after neutrino and antineutrino channels are combined. Its existence should be taken into account in the planning of any oscillation experiment aiming at a robust measurement of delta_CP.

    We present preliminary results of several analyses searching for the effects of CP violation and mixing in the decay of D0 mesons. We find no evidence of CP asymmetry in five different two-body decay modes of the D0 to pairs of light pseudo-scalar mesons: A_CP(K+ K-) = (+0.05 +- 2.18 +- 0.84)%, A_CP(pi+ pi-) = (+2.0 +- 3.2 +- 0.8)%, A_CP(K0_S pi0) = (+0.1 +- 1.3)% A_CP(pi0 pi0) = (+0.1 +- 4.8)% and A_CP(K0_S K0_S) = (-23 +- 19)%. We present the first measurement of the rate of wrong-sign D0 -> K+ pi- pi0 decay: R_WS = 0.0043 + 0.0011 - 0.0010 +- 0.0007. Finally, we describe a measurement of the mixing parameter y_CP= Delta Gamma / (2 Gamma) by searching for a lifetime difference between the CP neutral K+ pi- final state and the CP even K+K- and pi+pi- final states. Under the assumption that CP is conserved we find y_CP = -0.011 +- 0.025 +- 0.014.

  3. Towards a high precision CP violation measurement with the ATLAS Detector

    de Mora, Lee; Smizanska, Maria

    2010-01-01

    ATLAS is a general purpose detector designed to study the high energy proton-proton collisions produced at the Large Hadron Collider. The channel Bs→J/ψφ offers a measurement of standard model CP violating parameters, and has the potential to be sensitive to new physics. The measurement of CP violation in the Bs→J/ψφ channel at ATLAS is largely determined by three factors: statistics, lifetime resolution and flavour tagging. This study concentrates on improving the lifetime measurement and the implementation of flavour tagging. Flavour tagging has a strong influence on the sensitivity of CP violation studies. The jet charge flavour tagging method was optimised to increase its effectiveness. The lifetime of a B-hadron is calculated using the pT , mass and vertexing. A deformation in the inner detector can produce a detectable change in these observables.

    The $C\\!P$ violation observables $S$ and $C$ in the decay channel $B^0 \\!\\rightarrow D^+ D^-$ are determined from a sample of proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of $7$ and $8$ TeV, collected by the LHCb experiment and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3~ {\\text {fb}}^{-1}$. The observable $S$ describes $C\\!P$ violation in the interference between mixing and the decay amplitude, and $C$ parametrizes direct $C\\!P$ violation in the decay. The following values are obtained from a flavour-tagged, decay-time-dependent analysis: \\begin{align*} S &= -0.54 \\, ^{+0.17}_{-0.16} \\, \\text{(stat)} \\pm 0.05 \\, \\text{(syst)}\\,, \\\\ C &= \\phantom{-}0.26 \\, ^{+0.18}_{-0.17} \\, \\text{(stat)} \\pm 0.02 \\, \\text{(syst)}\\,. \\end{align*} These values constrain higher-order Standard Model corrections to be small.

    Using $pp$ collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $1.0 \\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ and collected by LHCb in 2011 at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, we report the measurement of direct $C\\!P$ violation in $B^0_s \\to K^-\\pi^+$ decays, $A_{C\\!P}(B^0_s \\rightarrow K^- \\pi^+)=0.27 \\pm 0.04\\,\\mathrm{(stat)} \\pm 0.01\\,\\mathrm{(syst)}$, with significance exceeding 5 standard deviations. This is the first observation of $C\\!P$ violation in the decays of $B^0_s$ mesons. Furthermore, we provide an improved determination of direct $C\\!P$ violation in $B^0 \\to K^+\\pi^-$ decays, $A_{C\\!P}(B^0\\rightarrow K^+ \\pi^-)=-0.080 \\pm 0.007\\,\\mathrm{(stat)} \\pm 0.003\\,\\mathrm{(syst)}$, which is the most precise measurement of this quantity to date.

    We study the potential to observe CP-violating effects in SUSY stop cascade decay chains at the LHC. Asymmetries composed by triple products of momenta of the final state particles are sensitive to CP-violating effects. Due to large boosts that dilute the asymmetries, these can be difficult to observe. If all particle masses in a cascade decay are known, it may be possible to reconstruct all momenta in the decay chains on an event-by-event basis even when we have missing momentum due to a stable LSP. After the reconstruction, the non-diluted CP-violating signal can be recovered and gets significantly enhanced so that an observation may become feasible. A fully hadronic study has been completed to define the areas of the mSUGRA parameter space that may yield a 3-sigma observation with 500 fb^(-1) at the LHC.

    We study the potential to observe CP-violating effects in SUSY cascade decay chains at the LHC. We consider squark and gluino production followed by subsequent decays into neutralinos with a three-body leptonic decay in the final step. Asymmetries composed by triple products of momenta of the final state particles are sensitive to CP-violating effects. Due to large boosts these asymmetries can be difficult to observe at a hadron collider. We show that using all available kinematic information one can reconstruct the decay chains on an event-by-event basis even in the case of 3-body decays, neutrinos and LSPs in the final state. We also discuss the most important experimental effects like major backgrounds and momentum smearing due to finite detector resolution. We show that with 300 fb$^{-1}$ of collected data, CP violation may be discovered at the LHC for a wide range of the phase of the bino mass parameter $M_1$.

    We study the potential to observe CP-violating effects in SUSY t{sub 1}-cascade decay chains at the LHC. Asymmetries composed by triple products of momenta of the final state particles are sensitive to CP-violating effects. Due to large boosts that dilute the asymmetries, these can be difficult to observe. If all particle masses in a cascade decay are known, it may be possible to reconstruct all momenta in the decay chains on an event-by-event basis even when we have missing momentum due to a stable LSP. After the reconstruction, the non-diluted CP-violating signal can be recovered and gets significantly enhanced so that an observation may become feasible. A fully hadronic study has been completed to define the areas of the mSUGRA parameter space that may yield a 3-{sigma} observation with 500 fb{sup -1} at the LHC.

    A search for time-integrated CP violation in D(0)→h(-)h(+) (h=K, π) decays is presented using 0.62 fb(-1) of data collected by LHCb in 2011. The flavor of the charm meson is determined by the charge of the slow pion in the D(*+)→D(0)π(+) and D(*-)→D[over ¯](0)π(-) decay chains. The difference in CP asymmetry between D(0)→K(-)K(+) and D(0)→π(-)π(+), ΔA(CP)≡A(CP)(K(-)K(+))-A(CP)(π(-)π(+)), is measured to be [-0.82±0.21(stat)±0.11(syst)]%. This differs from the hypothesis of CP conservation by 3.5 standard deviations. PMID:22540460

The flavor of the charm meson is determined by the charge of the slow pion in the $D^{*+} \\rightarrow D^0 \\pi^+$ and $D^{*-} \\rightarrow \\overline{D}^0 \\pi^-$ decay chains. The difference in $CP$ asymmetry between $D^0 \\rightarrow K^- K^+$ and $D^0 \\rightarrow \\pi^- \\pi^+$, $\\Delta A_{CP} \\equiv A_{CP}(K^-K^+) \\, - \\, A_{CP}(\\pi^-\\pi^+)$, is measured to be $\\left[ -0.82 \\pm 0.21 (\\mathrm{stat.}) \\pm 0.11 (\\mathrm{syst.}) \\right]\\%$. This differs from the hypothesis of $CP$ conservation by $3.5$ standard deviations.

    In a universe dominated by matter, the source of CP violation may explain one of the greatest mysteries in particle physics: what happened to the antimatter? The Standard Model successfully describes CP violation in the B{sup +} and B{sub d}{sup 0} systems, yet insufficiently accounts for the observed matter-antimatter asymmetry. The Standard Model predicts a small value of CP violation in the B{sub s}{sup 0} meson system, which has only recently been experimentally tested. A measurement of large, anomalous CP violation in the B{sub s}{sup 0} system would be a clear indication of new physics sources beyond the Standard Model. This dissertation describes a study of CP violation in approximately 2000 B{sub s}{sup 0} {yields} J/{psi}{phi} decays reconstructed in a 2.8 fb{sup -1} data sample collected by the D0 Run II detector at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois. This data was provided by p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV delivered by the Tevatron accelerator between April 2002 and August 2007. Flavor-tagged B{sub s}{sup 0} {yields} J/{psi}({mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -}){phi}(K{sup +}K{sup -}) decays and an angular analysis are used to study the time evolution of the final state angular distributions. From this analysis, we measure the width difference between the heavy and light mass eigenstates, B{sub s}{sup L} and B{sub s}{sup H}, to be {Delta}{Lambda}{sub s} = 0.19 {+-} 0.07 and the CP-violating phase {phi}{sub s} = -0.57{sub -0.30}{sup +0.24}.

    The CP-violating effects to the subprocess gg → H+ H- are studied in the mSUGRA scenario at the CERN large hadron collider, by taking into account the experimental bounds of electron and neutron electric dipole moments.The CP-violating effects in this process are related to the complex phases ofμ and Af in the mSUGRA scenario. In our calculation we consider smallCP phases ofμ and Af and neglect the effects of neutral Higgs boson mixing. In this case the CP effects to the process mainly come from the complex couplings of Higgs-squark-squark. We find a strong dependence of charged Higgs boson pair production rate on the complex couplings in the parameter space of minimal supersymmetric standard model``

    We analyze the decay B0 --> K+ K- K0 using 383 million B-Bbar events collected by the BaBar detector at SLAC to extract CP violation parameter values over the Dalitz plot. Combining all K+ K- K0 events, we find A_CP = -0.015 +/- 0.077 +/- 0.053 and beta_eff = 0.352 +/- 0.076 +/- 0.026 rad, corresponding to a CP violation significance of 4.8 sigma. A second solution near pi/2 - beta_eff is disfavored with a significance of 4.5 sigma. We also report A_CP and beta_eff separately for decays to phi(1020) K0, f0(980) K0, and K+ K- K0 with m_{K+ K-} > 1.1 GeV/c^2.

    Using the general factorization approach, we present a detailed investigation for the branching ratios, CP asymmetries and longitudinal polarization fractions in all charmless hadronic $B \\to VV$ decays (except for the pure annihilation processes) within the most general two-Higgs-doublet model with spontaneous CP violation. It is seen that such a new physics model only has very small contributions to the branching ratios and longitudinal polarization fractions. However, as the model has rich CP-violating sources, it can lead to significant effects on the CP asymmetries, especially on those of penguin-dominated decay modes, which provides good signals for probing new physics beyond the SM in the future B-physics experiments.

    A sensitive search for direct CP violation in {upsilon}{sup -} ({xi}-bar{sup +}) and {lambda} ({lambda}-bar) decays is underway at FNAL. Experiment E871 (HyperCP) intends to perform a precision measurement of the angular distribution of protons (anti-protons) with respect to the helicity axis in the rest frame of the {lambda} ({lambda}-bar). The slopes of these distributions give the decay parameters {alpha}{sub {upsilon}}{alpha}{sub {lambda}} and {alpha}{sub {xi}}{sub -bar}{alpha}{sub {lambda}}{sub -bar}. An asymmetry parameter A in terms of these decay parameters has been defined for which a non-zero value would be unambiguous evidence for direct CP violation. Theoretical predictions for A range from no asymmetry up to {approx} 10{sup -3}. HyperCP expects to measure A with an uncertainty of {approx} 2 x 10{sup -4}.

  16. The electric dipole moment of the neutron in the mixed model of CP-violation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The discussion of the possibility of CP violation in Ksub(L) decays due to the Higgs mechanism is presented. It is marked that the direct relation between the parameters of CP violation in Ksub(L) decays and the parameters determining the value of the electric dipole moments Dsub(N) of baryons is absent in the six-quark variant of the SU(2)sub(L)xU(1) theory with an expanded Higgs fields sector. For this reason the detection of the neutron Dsub(N) is possible in the wide range 10-34-25 cm

    The study of CP violation in \\Bs\\, oscillations is a key measurement at the LHCb experiment. In this document, we discuss the latest LHCb results on the CP-violating phase, called $\\phi_s$, using \\BsJKK\\, and \\BsJpipi\\, channels. To conclude on the presence of New Physics in $\\phi_s$, the estimation of the sub-dominant contributions from the Standard Model becomes crucial now. We outline a method to estimate the contribution of penguin diagrams in $\\phi_s$. Branching fractions and upper limits of \\BdKshh\\,($ h^{(')}=K,\\pi)$\\, modes are presented.

    We present preliminary measurements of CP-violating asymmetries for the decay omega K0S. The data sample corresponds to 347 million BBbar pairs produced by e+e- annihilation at the Upsilon(4S) resonance. For the decay omega K0S, we measure the time-dependent CP-violation parameters S = 0.62+0.25-0.30+/-0.002, and C = -0.43+0.25-0.23+/-0.03, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic.

    We present measurements of the time-dependent CP-violation parameters S and C in B(0) --> eta(')K(0) decays. The data sample corresponds to 384 x 10(6) BB pairs produced by e(+)e(-) annihilation at the Upsilon(4S). The results are S=0.58+/-0.10+/-0.03 and C=-0.16+/-0.07+/-0.03. We observe mixing-induced CP violation with a significance of 5.5 standard deviations in this b --> s penguin dominated mode.

    We present measurements of the time-dependent CP-violation parameters S and C in B^0 --> eta' K^0 decays. The data sample corresponds to 384 million B Bar pairs produced by e^+ e^- annihilation at the Y(4S). The results are S = 0.58 +- 0.10 +- 0.03 and C = -0.16 +- 0.07 +- 0.03. We observe mixing-induced CP violation with a significance of 5.5 standard deviations in this b -> s penguin dominated mode.

    We present an updated search for direct CP violation in the decay B0 -> K+pi-. Using 227 million Y(4S) -> BBbar decays collected with the BaBar detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy e+e- collider at SLAC, we observe a total signal yield of n(K+pi-) + n(K-pi+) = 1606 +- 51 decays and measure the asymmetry [n(K+pi-)-n(K-pi+)]/[n(K+pi-)+n(K-pi+)] = -0.133+-0.030 (stat) +- 0.009 (syst). This measurement establishes direct CP violation in the B0 meson system at the level of 4.2 standard deviations.

    We revisit the effect of the (Dirac) CP-violating phase on neutrino lepton number asymmetries in both mass- and flavor-basis. We found that, even if there are sizable effects on muon- and tau-neutrino asymmetries, the effect on the asymmetry of electron-neutrinos is at most similar to the upper bound set by BBN for initial neutrino degeneracy parameters smaller than order unity. We also found that, for the asymmetries in mass-basis, the changes caused by CP-violation is of sub-\\% level which is unlikely to be accesible neither in the current nor in the forthcoming experiments.

    The authors present measurements of the time-dependent CP-violation parameters S and C in B{sup 0} {yields} K{sup 0} decays. The data sample corresponds to 384 million B{bar B} pairs produced by e{sup +}e{sup -} annihilation at the {Upsilon}(4S). The results are S = 0.58 {+-} 0.10 {+-} 0.03, and C = -0.16 {+-} 0.07 {+-} 0.03. They observe mixing-induced CP violation with a significance of 5.5 standard deviations in this b {yields} s penguin dominated mode.

  4. Search for CP violation in singly Cabibbo suppressed four-body D decays

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Martinelli, Maurizio [Univ. of Bari Aldo Moro (Italy)

    2011-02-01

    We search for CP violation in a sample of 4.7 x 104 singly Cabibbo suppressed D0 → K+ K- π+π- decays and 1.8(2.6) x 104 D(s)+ → KS0 K+ π+ π- decays. CP violation is searched for in the difference between the T-odd asymmetries, obtained using triple product correlations, measured for D and D decays. The measured CP violation parameters are AT(D0) = (1.0 ± 5.1(stat) ± 4.4(syst)) x 10-3, AT(D+) = (-11.96 ± 10.04(stat) ± 4.81(syst)) x 10-3 and AT(Ds+) = (-13.57 ± 7.67(stat) ± 4.82(syst)) x 10-3. This search for CP violation showed that the T-odd correlations are a powerful tool to measure the CP violating observable AT. The relative simplicity of an analysis based on T-odd correlations and the high quality results that can be obtained, allow to consider this tool as fundamental to search for CP violation in four-body decays. Even if the CP violation has not been found, excluding any New Physics effect to the sensitivity of about 0.5%, it is still worth to search for CP violation in D decays. The high statistics that can be obtained at the LHC or by the proposed high luminosity B-factories, make this topic to be considered in high consideration by experiments such as LHCb, SuperB or SuperBelle. The results outlined in this thesis strongly suggest to include a similar analysis into the Physics program of these experiments.

    A search for CP violation in the phase space of the decay $D^+\\to\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^+$ is reported using $pp$ collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb$^{-1}$, collected by the LHCb experiment at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. The Dalitz plot distributions for $3.1\\times 10^6$ $D^+$ and $D^-$ candidates are compared with binned and unbinned model-independent techniques. No evidence for CP violation is found.

  6. Connecting Leptonic Unitarity Triangle to Neutrino Oscillation with CP Violation in Vacuum and in Matter

    CERN Document Server

    He, Hong-Jian

    2016-01-01

    Leptonic unitarity triangle (LUT) provides fundamental means to geometrically describe CP violation in neutrino oscillation. In this work, we use LUT to present a new geometrical interpretation of the vacuum oscillation probability, and derive a compact new oscillation formula in terms of only 3 independent parameters of the corresponding LUT. Then, we systematically study matter effects for the geometrical formulation of neutrino oscillation with CP violation. Including matter effects, we derive a very compact new oscillation formula by using the LUT formulation. We further demonstrate that this geometrical formula holds well for practical applications to neutrino oscillations in matter, including T2K, MINOS, and NOvA experiments.

    We have performed a search for CP violation in a sample of semileptonic B{sub s}{sup 0} decays corresponding to approximately 5 fb{sup -1} of data collected by the D0 detector in Run II at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. A time-dependent fit to the distributions of the B{sub s}{sup 0} candidates yields the flavor-specific asymmetry a{sub fs}{sup s} = [-1.7 {+-} 9.1(stat){sub -2.3}{sup +1.2}(syst)] x 10{sup -3}. This is the most precise measurement to date of this CP violation parameter.

    We present measurements of CP-violating asymmetries in the decay B0 -> a_1(1260)^{+-} pi^{-+} with a_1(1260)^{+-} -> pi^{-+} pi^{+-} pi^{+-}. The data sample corresponds to 384 million B B-bar pairs collected with the BaBar detector at the PEP-II asymmetric B-factory at SLAC. We measure the CP-violating asymmetry A^{a_1 \\pi}_{CP}=-0.07+-0.07+-0.02, the mixing-induced CP violation parameter S_{a_1 \\pi}= 0.37 +-0.21+-0.07, the direct CP violation parameter C_{a_1 \\pi}=-0.10+-0.15+-0.09, and the parameters \\Delta C_{a_1 \\pi}=0.26+-0.15+-0.07 and \\Delta S_{a_1\\pi}=-0.14+-0.21+-0.06. From these measured quantities we determine the angle \\alpha_{\\rm eff}= 78.6^{\\circ} +- 7.3^{\\circ}.

    The CMS Collaboration has reported a possible lepton flavor violating (LFV) signal h → μτ. Whereas this does not happen in the standard model (SM), we point out that new physics responsible for this type of decay would, in general, also produce charge-parity (CP) violation in h → ττ. We estimate the size of this effect in a model independent manner and find that a large asymmetry, of order 25%, is allowed by current constraints.

    A two-Higgs-doublet model including a tree-level suppression mechanism for flavour-changing neutral interactions is analysed. In this framework, explicit CT violation is considered. One finds the model capable of saturating the neutron EDM experimental bound while simultaneously preserving the correct low-energy predictions of the standard model. A compatibility check with the observed CP violation phenomena in kaon physics is also presented. (Author).

    We review CP-violating observables in $D^0 \\rightarrow K^{-}\\pi^{+}$ decays and evaluate the CP asymmetry difference between the tagged and untagged decays. We note that this commonly neglected difference is not zero in principle and can be significant in future $B$ factory experiments. We also construct an expression to extract the strong phase difference between $\\bar{D}^0 \\rightarrow K^-\\pi^+$ and $D^0 \\rightarrow K^-\\pi^+$ decays, independently of existing experimental methods.

    2009-01-01

    A search for CP violation has been performed in a sample of semileptonic Bs decays corresponding to approximately 5fb^-1 of data collected by the D0 detector in Run II at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. A time-dependent fit to the distributions of Bs candidates yields the flavour-specific asymmetry a^s_fs = [-1.7 +/- 9.1 (stat) +1.2 -2.3 (syst)] x 10^-3, corresponding to the most precise measurement to date for this CP violation parameter. Furthermore a search for the semi-inclusive process Bs to Ds^(*)Ds^(*) has been performed on a data sample of 2.8fb^-1. 26.6 +/- 8.4 signal events are observed with a significance of 3.2 standard deviations above background, leading to a branching ratio of 0.035 +/- 0.010 (stat) +/- 0.011 (syst). Under certain theoretical assumptions, these double-charm final states saturate CP-even eigenstates in the $B_s$ decays, resulting in a width difference of Delta Gamma_s^CP / Gamma_s = 0.072 +/- 0.021 (stat) +/- 0.022 (syst).

    This paper presents the final interpretation of the results from DELPHI on the searches for Higgs bosons in the Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM). A few representative scenarios are considered, that include CP conservation and explicit CP violation in the Higgs sector. The experimental results encompass the searches for neutral Higgs bosons at LEP1 and LEP2 in final states as expected in the MSSM, as well as LEP2 searches for charged Higgs bosons and for neutral Higgs bosons decaying into hadrons independent of the quark flavour. The data reveal no significant excess with respect to background expectations. The results are translated into excluded regions of the parameter space in the various scenarios. In the CP-conserving case, these lead to limits on the masses of the lightest scalar and pseudoscalar Higgs bosons, h and A, and on tan(beta). The dependence of these limits on the top quark mass is discussed. Allowing for CP violation reduces the experimental sensitivity to Higgs b...

  16. $A_4$ and CP symmetry and a model with maximal CP violation

    Li, Cai-Chang; Ding, Gui-Jun

    2016-01-01

    We study a second CP symmetry compatible with the $A_4$ flavor group, which interchanges the representations $\\mathbf{1}'$ and $\\mathbf{1}"$. We analyze the lepton mixing patterns arising from the $A_4$ and CP symmetry broken to residual subgroups $Z_3$ and $Z_2\\times CP$ in the charged lepton and neutrino sectors respectively. One phenomenologically viable mixing pattern is found, and it predicts maximal atmospheric mixing angle as well as maximal Dirac CP phase, trivial Majorana phase and the correlation $\\sin^2\\theta_{12}\\cos^2\\theta_{13}=1/3$. We construct a concrete model based on the $A_4$ and CP symmetry, the above interesting mixing pattern is achieved, the observed charged lepton mass hierarchy is reproduced, and the reactor mixing angle $\\theta_{13}$ is of the correct order.

  17. Towards the hot sphaleron rate and sizable CP violation in the Standard Model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this work we study two aspects of the Standard Model related to baryogenesis at the electroweak scale. The first deals with CP violation. For some time now, it has been thought that CP violation within the Standard Model was too weak to be able to produce the baryon asymmetry of the universe. The argument is based on the small value of the Jarslkog's determinant, ∝10-19, but the latter is a perturbative calculation and CP violation in experiments can be much larger, e.g. in the Kaon system of order 10-3. With the use of the worldline method, we derive a oneloop effective action by integrating out the fermions in the next-to-leading order of a gradient expansion. The CP violation, previously present in the fermion sector, manifests as CP violating operators in the effective action. By treating the fermion masses non-perturbatively, albeit with their derivatives treated perturbatively as befits a gradient expansion, we find the operators not to be suppressed by the Jarlskog determinant, but by the Jarlskog invariant, which is of order 10-5. The second part of this work deals with the infrared analysis of Boedeker's effective theory, which encodes the dynamics of weakly coupled, non-abelian gauge fields at high temperature with characteristic momentum scale of order vertical stroke k vertical stroke ∝g2T. The motivation for this is the eventual analytic calculation of the hot sphaleron rate, which is directly proportional to the rate of baryon number violation in the symmetric phase. After transcribing Boedeker's effective theory from a Langevin equation into an Euclidean path integral, we derive Dyson-Schwinger equations. We introduce an ansatz intended to solve the infrared dominated equations, and find the expected enhanced gauge propagator. An analogous role to the ghost propagator in Yang-Mills theory is played by the mixed propagator, which is suppressed. (orig.)

    We measure CP-violating asymmetries of neutral charmed mesons in the modes D0 --> K- K+ and D0 --> pi- pi+ with the highest precision to date by using D0 --> K- pi+ decays to correct detector asymmetries. An analysis of 385.8 fb-1 of data collected with the BaBar detector yields values of aCP(KK) = (0.00 +/- 0.34 (stat.) +/- 0.13 (syst.))% and aCP(pipi) = (-0.24 +/- 0.52 (stat.) +/- 0.22 (syst.))%, which agree with Standard Model predictions.

  19. Mixing among the neutral Higgs bosons and rare B decays in the CP-violating MSSM

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Considering corrections from two-loop Feynman diagrams which involve a gluino at large tanβ, we analyze the effects of possible CP phases on the rare B decays: Bs→l+l- and B→Kl+l- in the CP violating minimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model. It is shown that the results of exact two-loop calculations obviously differ from those including one-loop contributions plus threshold radiative corrections. The numerical analysis indicates that the possibly large CP phases strongly affect the theoretical estimation of the branching ratios, and these results coincide with the conclusion of some other works appearing in recent literature

    CP violation has been observed in many processes, but has yet to be found in one key area: The decay of baryons. This project aims to search for the beauty baryon Lambda via its suppressed decay: $\\Lambda_{b}^{0} \\rightarrow [K^{+}\\pi^{-}]_{D}pK^{-}$ and to study CP violation in this mode.

  1. CP violation in η, KL → μantiμ- decays and electric dipole moments of electron and muon

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The CP-violating longitudinal polarization asymmetry PL of the outgoing muon in η → μμ- decays and the electric dipole moments of electron and muon (dl, l = e,μ) are studied in various extensions of the standard CP violation model. The possibility of having large PL in both decays and dl is explored

    2010-01-01

    We study CP violation in the two-body decay of a scalar tau into a neutralino and a tau, which should be probed at the LHC and ILC. From the normal tau polarization, a CP asymmetry is defined which is sensitive to the CP phases of the trilinear scalar coupling parameter $A_\\tau$, the gaugino mass parameter $M_1$, and the higgsino mass parameter $\\mu$, in the stau-neutralino sector of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. Asymmetries of more than 70% are obtained in scenarios with strong stau mixing. As a result, detectable CP asymmetries in stau decays at the LHC are found, motivating further detailed experimental studies for probing the SUSY CP phases.

    2001-01-01

    We update the theoretical analysis of the CP-violating asymmetry in the decay K_L -> pi+ pi- e+ e-, relying on chiral perturbation theory and on the most recent phenomenological information. With the experimentally determined magnetic amplitude and branching ratio as input, the asymmetry can be calculated with good accuracy. The theoretical interpretation of the sign of the asymmetry is discussed.

    Recent developments for mixing and CP violation in the D0 and Bs systems are reviewed, including (i) the recently emerging evidence for D0-D0bar mixing and the interpretations of the measurements; (ii) the theoretical status of the calculations of Delta(Gamma_D) and Delta(m_D); (iii) some implications of the measurement of Bs mixing for new physics.

  5. A new tool for the study of the CP-violating NMSSM

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Supersymmetric extensions of the Standard Model open up the possibility for new types of CP-violation. We consider the case of the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model where, beyond the phases from the soft lagrangian, CP-violation could enter the Higgs sector directly at tree-level through complex parameters in the superpotential. We develop a series of Fortran subroutines, cast within the public tool NMSSMTools and allowing for a phenomenological analysis of the CP-violating NMSSM. This new tool performs the computation of the masses and couplings of the various new physics states in this model: leading corrections to the sparticle masses are included; the precision for the Higgs masses and couplings reaches the full one-loop and leading two-loop order. The two-body Higgs and top decays are also attended. We use the public tools HiggsBounds and HiggsSignals to test the Higgs sector. Additional subroutines check the viability of the sparticle spectrum in view of LEP-limits and constrain the phases of the model via a confrontation to the experimentally measured Electric Dipole Moments. These tools will be made publicly available in the near future. In this paper, we detail the workings of our code and illustrate its use via a comparison with existing results. We also consider some consequences of CP-violation for the NMSSM Higgs sector.

  9. A mini review on CP-violating minimal supersymmetric Standard Model Higgs

    Indian Academy of Sciences (India)

    AMIT CHAKRABORTY; DILIP KUMAR GHOSH

    2016-09-01

    We discuss the present status of the Higgs sector of the CP-violating minimal supersymmetric Standard Model (CPVMSSM). In the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics, the only source of CP violation is the complex phase in the Cabibbo–Kobayashi–Maskawa (CKM) matrix. By now we all know that this singlephase is not large enough to explain the observed baryon asymmetry of our Universe. Hence, one require additional sources of CP violation. The MSSM with several complex phases is one such scenario. The tree-level CP invariance of the MSSM Higgs potential is broken at one-loop level in the presence of complex phases in the MSSM Lagrangian. The presence of these additional phases modifies Higgs masses, mixings and couplings significantly. These additional phases have non-trivial impact on several low-energy observables; like the electric dipole moments (EDMs) of atoms and molecules, the CP asymmetry in rare b-decays etc. We first present a brief outline of the CPVMSSM Higgs sector, and then discuss the current limits/bounds obtained from the measurementsof several low-energy observables. We also comment on the current bounds coming from the high-energy collider experiments, specially the Large Electron Positron (LEP) Collider and the ongoing Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the CERN.

    2010-01-01

    We present precise tests of CP and CPT symmetry based on the full dataset of K to pipi decays collected by the KTeV experiment at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory during 1996, 1997, and 1999. This dataset contains 16 million K to 2pi0 and 69 million K to pi+pi- decays. We measure the direct CP violation parameter Re(epsilon'/epsilon) = (19.2 pm 2.1)x10-4. We find the KL-KS mass difference Deltam = (5270 pm 12)x10^6 hbar/s and the KS lifetime tauS = (89.62 pm 0.05)x10-12 s. We also measure several parameters that test CPT invariance. We find the difference between the phase of the indirect CP violation parameter, epsilon, and the superweak phase, phi epsilon - phiSW = (0.40 pm 0.56) degrees. We measure the difference of the relative phases between the CP violating and CP conserving decay amplitudes for K to pi+pi- (phi+-) and for K to 2pi0 (phi00), Delta phi = (0.30 pm 0.35) degrees. From these phase measurements, we place a limit on the mass difference between K0 and K0bar, DeltaM < 4.8 x 10-19 GeV/c^...

    2016-08-26

    Recent progress in the determination of hadronic matrix elements has revealed a tension between the measured value of ε_{K}^{'}/ε_{K}, which quantifies direct CP violation in K→ππ decays, and the standard-model prediction. The well-understood indirect CP violation encoded in the quantity ε_{K} typically precludes large new-physics contributions to ε_{K}^{'}/ε_{K} and challenges such an explanation of the discrepancy. We show that it is possible to cure the ε_{K}^{'}/ε_{K} anomaly in the minimal supersymmetric standard model with squark masses above 3 TeV without overshooting ε_{K}. This solution exploits two features of supersymmetry: the possibility of large isospin-breaking contributions (enhancing ε_{K}^{'}) and the Majorana nature of gluinos (permitting a suppression of ε_{K}). Our solution involves no fine-tuning of CP phases or other parameters.

  12. Is there room for CP violation in the top-Higgs sector?

    CERN Document Server

    Cirigliano, V; de Vries, J; Mereghetti, E

    2016-01-01

    We discuss direct and indirect probes of chirality-flipping couplings of the top quark to Higgs and gauge bosons, considering both CP-conserving and CP-violating observables, in the framework of the Standard Model effective field theory. In our analysis we include current and prospective constraints from collider physics, precision electroweak tests, flavor physics, and electric dipole moments (EDMs). We find that low-energy indirect probes are very competitive, even after accounting for long-distance uncertainties. In particular, EDMs put constraints on the electroweak CP-violating dipole moments of the top that are two to three orders of magnitude stronger than existing limits. The new indirect constraint on the top EDM is given by $|d_t| < 6 \\cdot 10^{-20}$ e cm at $90\\%$ C.L.

  13. Normal tau polarisation as a sensitive probe of CP violation in chargino decay

    CERN Document Server

    Dreiner, Herbi K; Marold, Anja

    2010-01-01

    CP violation in the spin-spin correlations in chargino production and subsequent two-body decay into a tau and a tau-sneutrino is studied at the ILC. From the normal polarisation of the tau, an asymmetry is defined to test the CP-violating phase of the higgsino mass parameter \\mu. Asymmetries of more than \\pm70% are obtained, also in scenarios with heavy first and second generation sfermions. Bounds on the statistical significances of the CP asymmetries are estimated. As a result, the normal tau polarisation in the chargino decay is one of the most sensitive probes to constrain or measure the phase \\phi_\\mu at the ILC, motivating further detailed experimental studies.

    Babu, K S; Schienbein, I

    2003-01-01

    In the standard model, we study CP violating rate asymmetries in the decay b->d l^+ l^- when one of the leptons is polarised. We find an asymmetry of (5 -- 15)% in the polarised decay spectrum which is comparable to known results for the unpolarised case. In the kinematic region separating the rho-omega and $c \\bar c$ resonances, which is also theoretically cleanest, the polarised contribution to the asymmetry is larger than the unpolarised results. In order to observe a 3 sigma signal for direct CP violation in the polarised spectrum, assuming 100% efficiency, about 10^10 $B \\bar B$ pairs are required at a B factory. Our results indicate an asymmetric contribution from the individual polarisation states to the unpolarised CP asymmetry. Taking advantage of this, one can attribute any new physics to be most sensitive to a specific polarisation state.

  15. Standard model CP violation in polarised b → dl+l-

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In the standard model, we study CP violating rate asymmetries in the decay b → dl+l- when one of the leptons is polarised. We find an asymmetry of (5 / 15)% in the polarised decay spectrum which is comparable to known results for the unpolarised case. In the kinematic region separating the ρ - ω and cc resonances, which is also theoretically cleanest, the polarised contribution to the asymmetry is larger than the unpolarised results. In order to observe a 3σ signal for direct CP violation in the polarised spectrum, assuming 100% efficiency, about 1010 BB pairs are required at a B factory. Our results indicate an asymmetric contribution from the individual polarisation states to the unpolarised CP asymmetry. Taking advantage of this, one can attribute any new physics to be most sensitive to a specific polarisation state. (orig.)

    Babu, K S; Schienbein, I

    2003-01-01

    The electroweak CP violating rate asymmetries in the decay $b \\to d l^+ l^-$ are reexamined in detail and updated. In particular, the rate asymmetries are studied when one of the final state leptons is polarised. We find an estimate for the asymmetry of (5-15)% in the polarised decay spectrum which is close to known results for the unpolarised case. Interestingly, in the region separating the $\\rho-\\omega$ and $c \\bar c$ resonances, which is also theoretically cleanest, the polarised contribution to the asymmetry is larger than the unpolarised result. A $3\\sigma$ signal for direct CP violation, requires about 10^{10} $B \\bar B$ pairs at a B factory. In general these results indicate an asymmetric contribution from the individual polarisation states to the unpolarised CP asymmetry; an atribute for any new physics searches.

    Ahn, Y H

    2012-01-01

    Motivated by $5.2\\sigma$ observation of non-zero $\\theta_{13}$ from the Daya Bay experiment, we propose a renormalizable neutrino model with $A_4$ discrete symmetry accounting for deviations from the tri-bimaximal (TBM) mixing pattern of neutrino mixing matrix indicated by neutrino oscillation data. In the model, the light neutrino masses can be generated by radiative corrections, and we show how the light neutrino mass matrix can be diagonalized by the PMNS mixing matrix whose entries are determined by the current neutrino data including the Daya Bay result. We show that the origin of the deviations from the TBM mixing is non-degeneracy of the neutrino Yukawa coupling constants, and unremovable CP phases in the neutrino Yukawa matrix give rise to the low energy CP violation measurable from neutrino oscillation as well as high energy CP violation required for leptogenesis.

    The narrative of these lectures contains three main threads: (i) CP violation despite having so far been observed only in the decays of neutral kaons has been recognized as a phenomenon of truly fundamental importance. The KM ansatz constitutes the minimal implementation of CP violation: without requiring unknown degrees of freedom it can reproduce the known CP phenomenology in a nontrivial way.

    The 2 first chapters of this thesis are dedicated to the theoretical and experimental aspects of CP violation. The NA48 experiment is a third generation experiment like KTeV, NA48 has been designed to collect data concerning the simultaneous detection of the 4 decay modes: K{sub L,S} {yields} {pi}{pi} and to provide the measurement of the parameter of direct CP violation with an uncertainty nearing 2*10{sup -4}. The third chapter describes the experimental equipment of NA48 in CERN: the production of K{sub L} and K{sub S} beams, the tagging system, the detection system for K {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}, the detection system for K {yields} {pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}, the data acquisition system, and the trigger system. Chapter 4 is dedicated to the selection and identification of events. Chapter 5 deals with specific problems concerning the detection of {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}, it means: the dead time in the triggering system, the overflow of the chamber reading system and the inefficiency of shift chambers. Chapter 6 lists the different corrections and systematic errors concerning the double ratio R, and gives the following result: Re({epsilon}'/{epsilon}=(14.4{+-}2.6)*10{sup -4}) which is by itself, for the first time, an evidence of direct violation.

    Currie, Robert A

    The LHCb experiment is an experiment based at the LHC in Geneva and is dedicated to the study of mesons containing bottom and charm quarks. One of the primary goals of the physics at LHCb is to measure $\\mathcal{C}\\mathcal{P}\\text{-violating}$ effects which lead to a dominance of matter over anti-matter in the universe. This thesis presents the measurement of the $\\mathcal{C}\\mathcal{P}\\text{-violating}$ phase $\\phi_s$ which is one of the golden channels at LHCb. This phase is observed as the interference between mixing of $B^0_{s}\\leftrightarrow \\overline{B^0_{s}}$ and decay of $B_s^0\\rightarrow J/\\psi\\,K^{+}K^{-}$. The results, based upon the 1.0$\\,\\text{fb}^{-1}$ dataset collected by LHCb during 2011, are: $\\phi_{s}=0.07\\pm0.09\\pm0.01$ rad, $\\Delta\\Gamma_{s}=0.100\\pm0.016\\pm0.002$ ps$^{-1}$ $\\Gamma_{s}=0.663\\pm0.005\\pm0.006$ ps$^{-1}$. This analysis is also able to measure the mixing parameter $\\Delta m_s=17.71\\pm0.10\\pm0.01\\,\\text{ps}^{-1}$. To improve upon this measurement the $B_s^0\\rightarrow J/\\psi\\,K...

    We perform a comprehensive study of the Higgs sector in the framework of the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM) with CP-violating parameters in the superpotential and in the soft-supersymmetry-breaking sector. Since the CP is no longer a good symmetry, the two CP-odd and the three CP-even Higgs bosons of the NMSSM in the CP-conserving limit will mix. We show explicitly how the mass spectrum and couplings to gauge bosons of the various Higgs bosons change when the CP-violating phases take on nonzero values. We include full one-loop and the logarithmically enhanced two-loop effects employing the renormalization-group (RG) improved approach. In addition, the LEP limits, the global minimum condition, and the positivity of the square of the Higgs-boson mass have been imposed. We demonstrate the effects on the Higgs mass spectrum and the couplings to gauge bosons with and without the RG improved corrections. Substantial modifications to the allowed parameter space happen because of the changes to...

    The Two-Higgs Doublet Model (2HDM) is a model of low-energy particle interactions that is identical to the Standard Model except for the addition of an extra Higgs doublet. This extended Higgs sector would appear in experiments as the presence of multiple Higgs particles, both neutral and charged. The neutral states may either be eigenstates of CP (in the CP-conserving 2HDM), or be mixtures of CP eigenstates (in the CP-violating 2HDM). In order to understand how to measure the couplings of these new particles, this document presents the theory of the CP-violating 2HDM in a basis-independent formalism and explicitly identifies the physical parameters of the model, including a discussion of tan(beta)-like parameters. The CP-conserving limit, decoupling limit, and the custodial limit of the model are presented. In addition, phenomenological constraints from the oblique parameters (S, T, and U) are discussed. A survey of the parameter space of this model shows that the 2HDM is consistent with a large range of pos...

    We report on a study of the decay {bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D*{sup +} {omega}{pi}{sup -} with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II B-factory at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. Based on a sample of 232 million B{sup 0}{bar B}{sup 0} decays collected between 1999 and 2004, we measure the branching fraction {Beta}({bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D*{sup +} {omega}{pi}{sup -}) = (2.88 {+-} 0.21(stat.) {+-} 0.31(syst.)) x 10{sup -3}. We study the invariant mass spectrum of the {omega}{pi}{sup -} system in this decay. This spectrum is in good agreement with expectations based on factorization and the measured spectrum in {tau}{sup -} {yields} {omega}{pi}{sup -} {nu}{sub {tau}}. We also measure the polarization of the D*{sup +} as a function of the {omega}{pi}{sup -} mass. In the mass region 1.1 to 1.9 GeV we measure the fraction of longitudinal polarization of the D*{sup +} to be {Lambda}{sub L}/{Lambda} = 0.654 {+-} 0.042(stat.) {+-} 0.016(syst.). This is in agreement with the expectations from heavy-quark effective theory and factorization assuming that the decay proceeds as {bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D*{sup +} {rho}(1450){sup -}, {rho}(1450){sup -} {yields} {omega}{pi}{sup -}. Furthermore, we present the results on the time-dependent CP asymmetry in neutral B meson decays to the CP eigenstate J/{psi}K{sub L}. The measurements use a data sample of about 88 million {Upsilon}(4S) {yields} B{bar B} decays collected between 1999 and 2002 with the BABAR detector. We study events in which one neutral B meson is fully reconstructed in the J/{psi}K{sub L} final state and the other B meson is determined to be either a B{sup 0} or a {bar B}{sup 0} from its decay products. The amplitude of the CP asymmetry, which in the Standard Model is proportional to sin 2{beta}, is derived from the decay-time distributions in such events. We measure sin 2{beta} = 0.723 {+-} 0.158(stat.) {+-} 0.086(syst.), which is consistent with Standard Model expectations.

    We report on a study of the decay $\\bar{B}$0 → D*+ ωπ- with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II B-factory at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. Based on a sample of 232 million B0$\\bar{B}$0 decays collected between 1999 and 2004, we measure the branching fraction β}($\\bar{B}$0 → D*+ ωπ-) = (2.88 ± 0.21(stat.) ± 0.31(syst.)) x 10-3. We study the invariant mass spectrum of the ωπ- system in this decay. This spectrum is in good agreement with expectations based on factorization and the measured spectrum in τ- → ωπ- vτ. We also measure the polarization of the D*+ as a function of the ωπ- mass. In the mass region 1.1 to 1.9 GeV we measure the fraction of longitudinal polarization of the D*+ to be ΓL/Γ = 0.654 ± 0.042(stat.) ± 0.016(syst.). This is in agreement with the expectations from heavy-quark effective theory and factorization assuming that the decay proceeds as $\\bar{B}$0 → D*+ ρ(1450)-, ρ(1450)- → ωπ-. Furthermore, we present the results on the time-dependent CP asymmetry in neutral B meson decays to the CP eigenstate J/ΨKL. The measurements use a data sample of about 88 million Y(4S) → B$\\bar{B}$ decays collected between 1999 and 2002 with the BABAR detector. We study events in which one neutral B meson is fully reconstructed in the J/ΨKL final state and the other B meson is determined to be either a B0 or a $\\bar{B}$0 from its decay products. The amplitude of the CP asymmetry, which in the Standard Model is proportional to sin 2β, is derived from the decay-time distributions in such events. We measure sin 2β = 0.723 ± 0.158(stat.) ± 0.086(syst.), which is consistent with Standard Model expectations.

    Supersymmetric models where R-parity is broken via lepton number violation provides an intrinsically supersymmetric explanation for the observed neutrino. The complex phases of the corresponding parameters are constrained by the observed matter anti-matter asymmetry of the universe. Taking bilinear R-parity violation as framework in combination with the assumption of a large lepton asymmetry generated via the Affleck-Dine mechanism at the end of inflation we investigate these constraints in the parameter range compatible with neutrino data.

    One of the main goals of the Long Baseline Neutrino Observatory (LBNO) is to study the $L/E$ behaviour (spectral information) of the electron neutrino and antineutrino appearance probabilities, in order to determine the unknown CP-violation phase $\\delta_{CP}$ and discover CP-violation in the leptonic sector. The result is based on the measurement of the appearance probabilities in a broad range of energies, covering t he 1st and 2nd oscillation maxima, at a very long baseline of 2300 km. The sensitivity of the experiment can be maximised by optimising the energy spectra of the neutrino and anti-neutrino fluxes. Such an optimisation requires exploring an extended range of parameters describing in details the geometries and properties of the primary protons, hadron target and focusing elements in the neutrino beam line. In this paper we present a numerical solution that leads to an optimised energy spectra and study its impact on the sensitivity of LBNO to discover leptonic CP violation. In the optimised flux ...

    A measurement of the decay time dependent $CP$-violating asymmetry in $B_s^0 \\to \\phi\\phi$ decays is presented, along with measurements of the $T$-odd triple-product asymmetries. In this decay channel, the $CP$-violating weak phase arises from the interference between $B_s^0$-$\\overline{B}_s^0$ mixing and the loop-induced decay amplitude. Using a sample of proton-proton collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3.0\\, fb^{-1}$ collected with the LHCb detector, a signal yield of approximately 4000 $B_s^0 \\to \\phi\\phi$ decays is obtained. The $CP$-violating phase is measured to be ${\\phi_s =-0.17\\pm0.15\\mathrm{\\,(stat)}\\pm0.03\\mathrm{\\,(syst)}}$ rad. The triple-product asymmetries are measured to be ${A_U=-0.003\\pm0.017\\mathrm{\\,(stat)}\\pm0.006\\mathrm{\\,(syst)}}$ and ${A_V=-0.017\\pm0.017\\mathrm{\\,(stat)}\\pm0.006\\mathrm{\\,(syst)}}$. Results are consistent with the hypothesis of $CP$ conservation.

In particular, we calculate the size of the allowed CP violation which is found at the observable level well beyond anything possible with CKM dynamics. We calculate the semileptonic asymmetry a_SL and the mixing induced CP asymmetry eta_fS_f which are correlated with each other. We also investigate the correlation of eta_fS_f with a number of prominent observables in other mesonic systems like epsilon'/epsilon, Br(K_L -> pi0 nu nu), Br(K+ -> pi+ nu nu), Br(B_s ->mu+ mu-), Br(B_d -> mu+ mu-) and finally S_psi phi in the B_s system. We identify a clear pattern of flavour and CP violation predicted by the SM4 model: While simultaneous large 4G effects in the K and D systems are possible, accompanying large NP effects in the B_d system are disfavoured. However this behaviour is not as pronounced as found for the LHT and RSc models. In contrast to this, sizeable CP violating effects in the B_s system are possible unless extreme effects in eta...

    A search for $CP$ violation in $D^{+} \\to \\phi \\pi^{+}$ decays is performed using data collected in 2011 by the LHCb experiment corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb$^{-1}$ at a centre of mass energy of 7 TeV. The $CP$-violating asymmetry is measured to be $(-0.04 \\pm 0.14 \\pm 0.14)$% for candidates with $K^{-}K^{+}$ mass within 20 MeV$/c^{2}$ of the $\\phi$ meson mass. A search for a $CP$-violating asymmetry that varies across the $\\phi$ mass region of the $D^{+} \\to K^{-}K^{+ }\\pi^{+}$ Dalitz plot is also performed, and no evidence for $CP$ violation is found. In addition, the $CP$ asymmetry in the $D_{s}^{+} \\to K^{0}_{S} \\pi^{+}$ decay is measured to be $(0.61 \\pm 0.83 \\pm 0.14)$%.

    We consider a search for the CP-violating angle deltaCP in long baseline neutrino oscillation experiments. We show that the subleading deltaCP-dependent terms in the nu_mu -> nu_e oscillation probability can be easily obscured by the ambiguity of the leading term given by dm^2_31. It is thus necessary to determine the value of dm^2_31 with a sufficient accuracy. We point out that nu_mu survival events, which can be accumulated simultaneously with the nu_e appearance events, can serve for this purpose owing to its large statistics. Therefore, the combined analysis of nu_e appearance and nu_mu survival events is crucial to provide a restrictive constraint on deltaCP. Taking a test experimental setup, we demonstrate in the deltaCP-dm^2_31 plane that the analysis of nu_e appearance events leads to less restrictive constraints on the value of deltaCP due to the ambiguity of dm^2_31. In contrast, the combined analysis is capable of constraining the values of deltaCP and dm^2_31 into a single small region, and also ...

  13. Post-ACME2013 CP-violation in Higgs Physics and Electroweak Baryogenesis

    2014-01-01

    We present a class of cancellation mechanisms to suppress the total contributions of Barr-Zee diagrams to the electron electric dipole moment (eEDM). This class of mechanisms are of particular significance after the new eEDM upper limit, which strongly constrains the allowed magnitude of CP-violation in Higgs couplings and hence the feasibility of electroweak baryogenesis (EWBG), were released by the ACME collaboration in 2013. We point out: if both the CP-odd Higgs-photon-photon ($Z$ boson) and the CP-odd Higgs-electron-positron couplings are turned on, a cancellation may occur either between the contributions of a CP-mixing Higgs boson, with the other Higgs bosons being decoupled, or between the contributions of a CP-even and a CP-odd Higgs bosons. With the assistance of the cancellation mechanisms, a large CP-phase in Higgs couplings with viable electroweak baryogenesis (EWBG) is still allowed. The reopened parameter regions would be probed by the future neutron, mercury EDM measurements, and direct measur...

    Investigations of CP violation in hadron sector may be done using measurements in the ThO molecule. Recent measurements in this molecule improved the limit on electron EDM by an order of magnitude. Another time reversal (T) and parity (P) violating effect in $^{229}$ThO is induced by the nuclear magnetic quadrupole moment. We have performed nuclear and molecular calculations to express this effect in terms of the strength constants of T,P-odd nuclear forces, neutron EDM, QCD vacuum angle $\\theta$, quark EDM and chromo-EDM.

  15. Measuring Dirac CP-violating phase with intermediate energy beta beam facility

    Taking the established nonzero value of $\\theta_{13}$, we study the possibility of extracting the Dirac CP-violating phase by a beta beam facility with a boost factor $100<\\gamma<450$. We compare the performance of different setups with different baselines, boost factors and detector technologies. We find that an antineutrino beam from $^6$He decay with a baseline of L=1300 km has a very promising CP discovery potential using a 500 kton Water Cherenkov (WC) detector. Fortunately this baseline corresponds to the distance between FermiLAB to Sanford underground research facility in South Dakota.

  16. Precision Measurement of CP Violation in D0->pi+pi- at CDF

    2010-01-01

    We report a preliminary measurement of the CP violating asymmetry in D0->pi+pi- using approximately 215,000 decays reconstructed in about 5.94/fb of CDF data. We use the strong D*+->D0pi+ decay ("D* tag") to identify the flavor of the charmed meson at production time and exploit CP-conserving strong c-cbar pair-production in p-pbar collisions. Higher statistic samples of Cabibbo-favored D0->K-pi+ decays with and without D* tag are used to highly suppress systematic uncertainties due to detector effects. The result is the world's most precise measurement to date.

  17. CP violating asymmetries of b quarks and leptons in e+e-→tt-bar and supersymmetry

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The distributions of the single decay b-quarks and leptons from e+e-→tt-bar assuming CP violation are reviewed. Different asymmetries, sensitive independently to CP violation in the production and in the decay, and sensitive to the real and imaginary parts of dγ and dZ are defined. The analytic expressions are general and independent on the model of CP violation. In most of them all phase space integrations are fulfilled analytically. Numerical results in the MSSM with complex couplings are presented. (author)

  18. The absolute neutrino mass scale, neutrino mass spectrum, Majorana CP-violation and neutrinoless double-beta decay

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Assuming 3-ν mixing, massive Majorana neutrinos and neutrinoless double-beta ((ββ)0ν-) decay generated only by the (V-A) charged current weak interaction via the exchange of the three Majorana neutrinos, we briefly review the predictions for the effective Majorana mass || in (ββ)0ν-decay and reanalyze the physics potential of future (ββ)0ν-decay experiments to provide information on the type of neutrino mass spectrum, the absolute scale of neutrino masses, and Majorana CP-violation in the lepton sector. Using as input the most recent experimental results on neutrino oscillation parameters and the prospective precision that can be achieved in future measurements of the latter, we perform a statistical analysis of a (ββ)0ν-decay half-life measurement taking into account experimental and theoretical errors, as well as the uncertainty implied by the imprecise knowledge of the corresponding nuclear matrix element (NME). We show, in particular, how the possibility to discriminate between the different types of neutrino mass spectra and the constraints on the absolute neutrino mass scale depend on the mean value and the experimental error of || and on the NME uncertainty. The constraints on Majorana CP-violation phases in the neutrino mixing matrix, which can be obtained from a measurement of || and additional data on the sum of neutrino masses, are also investigated in detail. We estimate the required experimental accuracies on both types of measurements, and the required precision in the NME permitting to address the issue of Majorana CP-violation in the lepton sector

    We report the first determination of CP violation parameters from particle-antiparticle asymmetry in the decay of neutral kaons into two charged pions. Observation of such an asymmetry is direct proof of CP violation. A fit to the asymmetry enabled a determination of the parameter {eta}{sub +-} to be made, yielding the result vertical stroke{eta}{sub +-}vertical stroke=(2.32{+-}0.14(stat.){+-}0.03(syst.))x10{sup -3} and {phi}{sub +-}=42.3deg{+-}4.4deg(stat.){+-}0.4deg(syst.), with an additional uncertainty of {+-}1.0deg due to the error on the present published value of {Delta}m, the K{sub L}{sup 0}-K{sub S}{sup 0} mass difference. The magnitudes of both statistical and systematic errors will be significantly reduced in the future. (orig.).

    2016-01-01

    In this work, we study the SM-like Higgs pair productions in the framework of the general CP-violating two-Higgs-doublet model. Several constraints are imposed to the model sequentially, including the SM-like Higgs boson signal fits, the precise measurements of the electric dipole moments, the perturbative unitarity and stability bounds to the Higgs potential, and the most recent LHC searches for the heavy Higgs bosons. We show how are the CP-violating mixing angles related to the Higgs cubic self couplings in this setup. Afterwards, we estimate the cross sections of the future LHC/SppC searches for the Higgs pair productions, as well as other possible decay modes for the heavy Higgs bosons.

  2. Mixing angles and CP violation in SU(2)/sub L/ x U(1) gauge model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Expressions for the mixing parameters are obtained in terms of mass ratios in the standard Weinberg-Salam model with permutation symmetry S3 for six quarks. The CP-violating phase, delta, is taken into account, and there are no arbitrary parameters except for the quark masses. In the lowest order, the angles defined by Kobayashi-Maskawa are sin theta1 approx. = (m/sub d//m sub d/ + m/sub s/)/sup 1/2, sin theta2 approx. = -[(m/sub s//m/sub b/)2 - (m/sub c//m/sub t/)2]/sup 1/2/, and sin theta3 = (m/sub s//m/sub b/)2/cos theta1. The model can be consistent with the observed magnitude of CP violation. The b quarks decay predominantly into c quarks with lifetime of tau/sub b/ approx. = 10-11 s

    We present the invited lectures given at the Third IDPASC School which took place in Santiago de Compostela in January 2013. The students attending the school had very different backgrounds, some of them were doing their PhD in experimental particle physics, others in theory. As a result, and in order to make the lectures useful for most of the students, we focused on basic topics of broad interest, avoiding the more technical aspects of Flavour Physics and CP Violation. We make a brief review of the Standard Model, paying special attention to the generation of fermion masses and mixing, as well as to CP violation. We describe some of the simplest extensions of the SM, emphasising novel flavour aspects which arise in their framework.

  4. CP Violation and the Role of Electroweak Penguins in Non-leptonic B Decays

    CERN Document Server

    Fleischer, Robert

    1996-01-01

    The phenomenon of CP violation in the B system and strategies for extracting CKM phases are reviewed. We focus both on general aspects and on some recent developments including CP-violating asymmetries in B_d decays, the B_s system in light of a possible width difference $\\Delta\\Gamma_s$, charged B decays, and SU(3) relations among certain transition amplitudes. In order to describe the relevant non-leptonic B decays, low energy effective Hamiltonians calculated beyond the leading logarithmic approximation are used. Special emphasis is given to the role of electroweak penguin operators in such transitions. These effects are analyzed both within a general framework and more specifically in view of the theoretical cleanliness of methods to determine CKM phases. Strategies for obtaining insights into the world of electroweak penguins are discussed.

  5. Non-standard interactions spoiling the CP violation sensitivity at DUNE and other long baseline experiments

    It is by now established that neutrino oscillations occur due to non-zero masses and parameters in the leptonic mixing matrix. The extraction of oscillation parameters may be complicated due to subleading effects such as non-standard neutrino interactions (NSI) and one needs to have a fresh look how a particular parameter value is inferred from experimental data. In the present work, we focus on an important parameter entering the oscillation framework - the leptonic CP violating phase $\\delta$, about which we know very little. We demonstrate that the sensitivity to CP violation gets significantly impacted due to NSI effects for the upcoming long baseline experiment, Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). We also draw a comparison with the sensitivities of other ongoing neutrino beam experiments such as NOvA, and T2K, as well as a future generation experiment, T2HK.

    We report on a search for CP violation in the decay of D0 and D0B to Kshort pi+pi-. The data come from an integrated luminosity of 9.0 1/fb of e+e- collisions at sqrt(s) ~ 10 GeV recorded with the CLEO II.V detector. The resonance substructure of this decay is well described by ten quasi-two-body decay channels (K*-pi+, K*0(1430)-pi+, K*2(1430)-pi+, K*(1680)-pi+, Kshort rho, Kshort omega, Kshort f0(980), Kshort f2(1270), Kshort f0(1370), and the ``wrong sign'' K*+ pi-) plus a small non-resonant component. We observe no evidence for CP violation in the amplitudes and phases that describe the decay D0 to K_S^0 pi+pi-.

    We investigate direct and indirect constraints on the complete set of anomalous CP-violating Higgs couplings to quarks and gluons originating from dimension-6 operators, by studying their signatures at the LHC and in electric dipole moments (EDMs). We show that existing uncertainties in hadronic and nuclear matrix elements have a significant impact on the interpretation of EDM experiments, and we quantify the improvements needed to fully exploit the power of EDM searches. Currently, the best bounds on the anomalous CP-violating Higgs interactions come from a combination of EDM measurements and the data from LHC Run 1. We argue that Higgs production cross section and branching ratios measurements at the LHC Run 2 will not improve the constraints significantly. On the other hand, the bounds on the couplings scale roughly linearly with EDM limits, so that future theoretical and experimental EDM developments can have a major impact in pinning down interactions of the Higgs.

  9. Anatomy and phenomenology of flavor and CP violation in supersymmetric theories

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The main subject of this PhD thesis is a comprehensive and systematic analysis of flavor and CP violating low energy processes in the framework of the MSSM, the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model. Supersymmetric (SUSY) models are among the best motivated and most thoroughly analyzed New Physics (NP) models. The new degrees of freedom predicted by Supersymmetry are expected to have masses of the order of the TeV scale and the direct search for these particles is one of the major goals at the LHC. A complementary strategy to probe the MSSM is given by the analysis of low energy high-precision observables, that can be modified through virtual effects of the new degrees of freedom. Of particular importance in this respect are so-called Flavor Changing Neutral Current (FCNC) processes that, forbidden in the Standard Model at the tree level, are highly sensitive probes of the flavor structure of NP models. We first analyze model independently low energy processes that show high sensitivity to the new sources of flavor and CP violation contained in the MSSM. Next, we discuss in detail the rich flavor structure of the MSSM and the implied SUSY contributions to FCNC and CP violating observables both in the low and high tan β regime. In fact, well measured low energy observables lead to remarkably strong constraints on the MSSM parameter space, which is often referred to as the SUSY flavor problem. We outline possibilities to control dangerously large SUSY effects in such observables and analyze the implied predictions for those low energy processes that are not measured with high precision, yet. We consider both the Minimal Flavor Violating MSSM and SUSY models based on abelian and non-abelian flavor symmetries that show representative flavor structures in the soft SUSY breaking terms. We identify the distinctive patterns of SUSY effects in the low energy observables, focussing in particular on CP violation in the b → sγ transition, the Bs mixing

  11. Towards the hot sphaleron rate and sizable CP violation in the Standard Model

    Hernandez Canseco, Andres

    2009-10-14

    In this work we study two aspects of the Standard Model related to baryogenesis at the electroweak scale. The first deals with CP violation. For some time now, it has been thought that CP violation within the Standard Model was too weak to be able to produce the baryon asymmetry of the universe. The argument is based on the small value of the Jarslkog's determinant, {proportional_to}10{sup -19}, but the latter is a perturbative calculation and CP violation in experiments can be much larger, e.g. in the Kaon system of order 10{sup -3}. With the use of the worldline method, we derive a oneloop effective action by integrating out the fermions in the next-to-leading order of a gradient expansion. The CP violation, previously present in the fermion sector, manifests as CP violating operators in the effective action. By treating the fermion masses non-perturbatively, albeit with their derivatives treated perturbatively as befits a gradient expansion, we find the operators not to be suppressed by the Jarlskog determinant, but by the Jarlskog invariant, which is of order 10{sup -5}. The second part of this work deals with the infrared analysis of Boedeker's effective theory, which encodes the dynamics of weakly coupled, non-abelian gauge fields at high temperature with characteristic momentum scale of order vertical stroke k vertical stroke {proportional_to}g{sup 2}T. The motivation for this is the eventual analytic calculation of the hot sphaleron rate, which is directly proportional to the rate of baryon number violation in the symmetric phase. After transcribing Boedeker's effective theory from a Langevin equation into an Euclidean path integral, we derive Dyson-Schwinger equations. We introduce an ansatz intended to solve the infrared dominated equations, and find the expected enhanced gauge propagator. An analogous role to the ghost propagator in Yang-Mills theory is played by the mixed propagator, which is suppressed. (orig.)

    We propose a simple Δ (27) ⊗Z4 model where neutrinos are predicted to be Dirac fermions. The smallness of their masses follows from a type-I seesaw mechanism and the leptonic CP violating phase correlates with the pattern of Δ (27) flavor symmetry breaking. The scheme naturally harbors a WIMP dark matter candidate associated to the Dirac nature of neutrinos, in that the same Z4 lepton number symmetry also ensures dark matter stability.

Using a field theory approach we show that fermionic currents arise at one loop, so that a suppression factor OMIKRON (htφ/πT)2 with respect to previous computations is found. The contributions to the Higgs currents are also derived and their relevancy for the spontaneous baryogenesis mechanism is discussed. (orig.)

    2012-01-01

    We report a measurement of time-integrated CP-violation asymmetries in the resonant substructure of the three-body decay D0 to Ks pi+ pi- using CDF II data corresponding to 6.0 invfb of integrated luminosity from Tevatron ppbar collisions at sqrt(s) = 1.96 TeV. The charm mesons used in this analysis come from D*+(2010) to D0 pi+ and D*-(2010) to D0bar pi-, where the production flavor of the charm meson is determined by the charge of the accompanying pion. We apply a Dalitz-amplitude analysis for the description of the dynamic decay structure and use two complementary approaches, namely a full Dalitz-plot fit employing the isobar model for the contributing resonances and a model-independent bin-by-bin comparison of the D0 and D0bar Dalitz plots. We find no CP-violation effects and measure an asymmetry of ACP = (-0.05 +- 0.57 (stat) +- 0.54 (syst))% for the overall integrated CP-violation asymmetry, consistent with the standard model prediction.

  2. Searching for CP violation in the $B_s^0\\to \\phi \\phi$ decay at LHCb

    Benson, Sean; Gardi, Einan

    The study of flavour physics allows for the Standard Model (SM) to be tested to higher energies than can be accessed through direct searches. The SM is known not to provide enough of a difference between matter and anti-matter, termed CP violation, to explain the dominance of matter in our universe. One of the main purposes of the LHCb experiment is to search for new sources of $CP$ violation in the decays of B mesons. Flavour changing neutral current (FCNC) interactions are forbidden at tree level in the SM, and can therefore only be accessed through quantum loops. In New Physics scenarios such as Supersymmetry, new particles could appear in those loops introducing new sources of $CP$ violation. The $B_s^0 \\to \\phi\\phi$ decay proceeds via the $b\\to s\\bar{s}s$ FCNC transition. Triple products provide a method of exploiting the angular distributions of $P\\to VV$ decays to create $T$-odd observables. Asymmetries of these $T$-odd observables, averaged over the initial flavour of the $B_s^0$ meson provide a measu...

  3. A New Tool for the study of the CP-violating NMSSM

    2015-01-01

    Supersymmetric extensions of the Standard Model open up the possibility for new types of CP-violation. We consider the case of the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model where, beyond the phases from the soft lagrangian, CP-violation could enter the Higgs sector directly at tree-level through complex parameters in the superpotential. We develop a series of Fortran subroutines, cast within the public tool NMSSMTools and allowing for a phenomenological analysis of the CP-violating NMSSM. This new tool performs the computation of the masses and couplings of the various new physics states in this model: leading corrections to the sparticle masses are included; the precision for the Higgs masses and couplings reaches the full one-loop and leading two-loop order. The two-body Higgs and top decays are also attended. We use the public tools HiggsBounds and HiggsSignals to test the Higgs sector. Additional subroutines check the viability of the sparticle spectrum in view of LEP-limits and constrain the phases o...

  4. Low energy probes of CP violation in a flavor blind MSSM

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We analyze the low energy implications of a flavor blind supersymmetric scenario (where the CKM matrix is the only source of flavor violation) in the presence of new CP violating but flavor conserving phases in the soft sector. We find that the best probes of this rather restricted scenario are (i) the electric dipole moments (EDMs) of the electron (de) and the neutron (dn) and (ii) flavor changing and CP violating processes in B systems, like the CP asymmetries in b→sγ and B→φ(η')KS, i.e. ACP(b→sγ) and Sφ(η')KS, respectively. The non-standard values for Sφ(η')KS, measured at the B factories, can find a natural explanation within our scenario and this would unambiguously imply (i) positive and often large (non-standard) values for ACP(b→sγ) and (ii) a lower bound for the electron and neutron EDMs at the level of de,n≥10-28ecm. Moreover, we predict positive New Physics (NP) contributions to εK which could be welcomed in view of the recently lowered Standard Model value for εK. Interestingly, an explanation for the non-standard values for Sφ(η')KS can also naturally lead to an explanation for the anomaly of the muon anomalous magnetic moment. Finally, we outline the role and the interplay of the direct NP searches at the LHC with the indirect searches performed by low energy flavor physics observables

    We present a preliminary measurement of CP-violation parameters in the decay B0->K+K-Ks, using approximately 465 million BBbar events collected by the BABAR detector at SLAC. Reconstructing the neutral kaon as Ks->pi+pi- or Ks->pi0pi0, we analyze the Dalitz plot distribution and measure fractions to intermediate states. We extract CP parameters from the asymmetries in amplitudes and phases between B0 and B0bar decays across the Dalitz plot. From a fit to the whole Dalitz plot, we measure beta_eff = 0.44 +/- 0.07 +/- 0.02, A_CP = 0.03 +/- 0.07 +/- 0.02, where the first uncertainties are statistical and the second ones are systematic. For decays to phiKs, we measure beta_eff = 0.13 +/- 0.13 +/- 0.02, A_CP = 0.14 +/- 0.19 +/- 0.02. For decays to f0Ks, we measure beta_eff = 0.15 +/- 0.13 +/- 0.03, A_CP = 0.01 +/- 0.26 +/- 0.07. From a fit to the region of the Dalitz plot with m_{K+K-}>1.1 GeV/c^2, we measure beta_eff = 0.52 +/- 0.08 +/- 0.03, A_CP = 0.05 +/- 0.09 +/- 0.04.

    A first flavor-tagged measurement of the time-dependent $CP$-violating asymmetry in $B_s^0 \\to \\phi\\phi$ decays is presented. In this decay channel, the $CP$-violating weak phase arises due to $CP$ violation in the interference between $B_s^0$-$\\overline{B}_s^0$ mixing and the $b \\to s \\overline{s} s $ gluonic penguin decay amplitude. Using a sample of $pp$ collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb$^{-1}$ and collected at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV with the LHCb detector, $880\\ B_s^0 \\to \\phi \\phi$ signal decays are obtained. The $CP$-violating phase is measured to be in the interval [-2.46, -0.76 ] rad at 68% confidence level. The p-value of the Standard Model prediction is 16 %.

    Indirect CP violation in the $D^0$ system can be probed by measuring the parameter $A_{\\Gamma}$, defined as the CP asymmetry of the effective lifetime of the $D^0$ meson decaying to a CP eigenstate. This can be significantly enhanced beyond Standard Model predictions by new physics. Measurements of $A_{\\Gamma}$ using $D^0 \\rightarrow K^+K^-$ and $D^0\\rightarrow \\pi^+\\pi^-$ decays reconstructed from pp collisions collected by the LHCb experiment, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb$^{-1}$, are presented. The results are \\begin{align*} A_{\\Gamma} (\\pi\\pi) = (+0.33 \\pm 1.06 \\pm 0.14) \\times 10^{-3},\\quad A_{\\Gamma} (KK) = (-0.35 \\pm 0.62 \\pm 0.12) \\times 10^{-3}, \\end{align*} where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. These are the most precise measurements of their kind to date, and show no evidence of CP violation.

    We analyse the interplay of generalised CP transformations and the non-Abelian discrete group $T^{\\prime}$ and use the semi-direct product $G_f= T^{\\prime}\\rtimes H_{\\text{CP}}$, as family symmetry acting in the lepton sector. The family symmetry is shown to be spontaneously broken in a geometrical manner. In the resulting flavour model, naturally small Majorana neutrino masses for the light active neutrinos are obtained through the type I see-saw mechanism. The known masses of the charged leptons, lepton mixing angles and the two neutrino mass squared differences are reproduced by the model with a good accuracy. The model allows for two neutrino mass spectra with normal ordering (NO) and one with inverted ordering (IO). For each of the three spectra the absolute scale of neutrino masses is predicted with relatively small uncertainty. The value of the Dirac CP violation (CPV) phase $\\delta$ in the lepton mixing matrix is predicted to be $\\delta \\cong \\pi/2~{\\rm or}~ 3\\pi/2$. Thus, the CP violating effects in ...

    Supersymmetric models provide many new complex phases which lead to CP violating effects in collider experiments. As an example, CP-sensitive triple product asymmetries in neutralino production and subsequent leptonic two-body decays are studied within the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. A full ILD detector simulation has been performed at a center of mass energy of 500GeV, including the relevant Standard Model background processes, a realistic beam energy spectrum, beam backgrounds and a beam polarization of 80% and -60% for the electron and positron beams, respectively. Assuming an integrated luminosity of 500fb-1 collected by the experiment and the performance of the current ILD detector, a relative measurement accuracy of 10% for the CP-sensitive asymmetry can be achieved in the chosen scenario.

    In the next generation of long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments, aiming to determine the charge-parity violating phase $\\delta_{CP}$ in the appearance channel, fine-grained time-projection chambers are expected to play an important role. In this Letter, we analyze an influence of realistic detector capabilities on the $\\delta_{CP}$ sensitivity for a setup similar to that of the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. We find that the effect of the missing energy, carried out by undetected particles, is sizable. Although the reconstructed neutrino energy can be corrected for the missing energy, the accuracy of such procedure has to exceed 20\\%, to avoid a sizable bias in the extracted $\\delta_{CP}$ value.

    A search for $CP$ violation using $T$-odd correlations is performed using the four-body $D^0 \\to K^+K^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ decay, selected from semileptonic $B$ decays. The data sample corresponds to integrated luminosities of $1.0\\,\\text{fb}^{-1}$ and $2.0\\,\\text{fb}^{-1}$ recorded at the centre-of-mass energies of 7 TeV and 8 TeV, respectively. The $CP$-violating asymmetry $a_{CP}^{T\\text{-odd}}$ is measured to be $(0.18\\pm 0.29\\text{(stat)}\\pm 0.04\\text{(syst)})\\%$. Searches for $CP$ violation in different regions of phase space of the four-body decay, and as a function of the $D^0$ decay time, are also presented. No significant deviation from the $CP$ conservation hypothesis is found.

    A study of mixing and indirect CP violation in $D^0$ mesons through the determination of the parameters $y_{CP}$ and $A_\\Gamma$ is presented. The parameter $y_{CP}$ is the deviation from unity of the ratio of effective lifetimes measured in $D^0$ decays to the CP eigenstate $K^+K^-$ with respect to decays to the Cabibbo favoured mode $K^-\\pi^+$. The result measured using data collected by LHCb in 2010, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $29~pb^{-1}$, is $$y_{CP} = (5.5\\pm6.3_{\\rm stat}\\pm4.1_{\\rm syst})\\times 10^{-3}.$$ The parameter $A_\\Gamma$ is the asymmetry of effective lifetimes measured in decays of $D^0$ and $\\overline{D}^0$ mesons to $K^+K^-$. The result is $$A_\\Gamma = (-5.9\\pm5.9_{\\rm stat}\\pm2.1_{\\rm syst})\\times 10^{-3}.$$ A data-driven technique is used to correct for lifetime-biasing effects.

  14. Probing flavor changing neutral currents and CP violation through the decay h-> c-b+ W- in the two Higgs doublet model

    2012-01-01

    We discuss the formulation of the general two-Higgs doublet model type III, which incorporates flavor changing neutral scalar interactions (FCNSI) and CP violation from several sources. CP violation can arise either from Yukawa terms or from the Higgs potential, and it can explicit or spontaneous. We discuss the case that includes CP violation with Yukawa textures to control FCNSI and evaluate the CP asymmetry for the decay h-> c-b+ W-, which may allow to test the patterns of FCNSI and CP violation, that arises in these models.

  15. CP violation in supersymmetry, Higgs sector and the large hadron collider

    2006-11-01

    In this talk I discuss some aspects of CP violation (CPV) in supersymmetry (SUSY) as well as in the Higgs sector. Further, I discuss ways in which these may be probed at hadronic colliders. In particular I will point out the ways in which studies in the $\\tilde{}^{±}$, $\\tilde{}_{2}^{0}$ sector at the Tevatron may be used to provide information on this and how the search can be extended to the LHC. I will then follow this by a discussion of the CP mixing induced in the Higgs sector due to the above-mentioned CPV in the soft SUSY breaking parameters and its effects on the Higgs phenomenology at the LHC. I would then point out some interesting aspects of the phenomenology of a moderately light charged Higgs boson, consistent with the LEP constraints, in this scenario. Decay of such a charged Higgs boson would also allow a probe of a light (≲ 50 GeV), CP-violating (CPV) Higgs boson. Such a light neutral Higgs boson might have escaped detection at LEP and could also be missed at the LHC in the usual search channels.

    We report the first lattice QCD calculation of the complex kaon decay amplitude $A_0$ with physical kinematics, using a $32^3\\times 64$ lattice volume and a single lattice spacing $a$, with $1/a= 1.379(7)$ GeV. We find Re$(A_0) = 4.62(0.99)(1.20) \\times 10^{-7}$ GeV and Im$(A_0) = -1.90(1.22)(1.04) \\times 10^{-11}$ GeV, where the first error is statistical and the second systematic. The first value is in approximate agreement with the experimental result: Re$(A_0) = 3.3201(18) \\times 10^{-7}$ GeV while the second can be used to compute the direct CP violating ratio Re$(\\varepsilon'/\\varepsilon)=1.36(5.21)(4.49)\\times 10^{-4}$, which is $2.1\\sigma$ below the experimental value $16.6(2.3)\\times10^{-4}$. The real part of $A_0$ is CP conserving and serves as a test of our method while the result for Re$(\\varepsilon'/\\varepsilon)$ provides a new test of the standard-model theory of CP violation, one which can be made more accurate with increasing computer capability.

    2008-01-01

    A left-right symmetric model with two Higgs bi-doublet is shown to be a consistent model for both spontaneous P and CP violation.The flavor changing neutral cur-rents can be suppressed by the mechanism of approximate global U(1) family symmetry.The constraints from neural K meson mass difference △mK are calcu-lated and it is demonstrated that a right-handed gauge boson W2 contribution in box-diagrams with mass well below 1 TeV is allowed due to a cancelation caused by a light-charged Higgs boson with a mass range of 150-300 GeV.The W2 contribution to εK can be suppressed from an appropriate choice of additional CP phases appearing in the right-handed Cabbibo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix.The model is also found to be fully consistent with B0 mass difference △mB and the mixing induced CP violation sin2βJ/ψ,which is usually difficult for the model with only one Higgs bi-doublet.The new physics beyond the standard model can be directly searched at the colliders LHC and ILC.

  18. Lightness of Higgs Boson and Spontaneous CP-violation in the Lee Model: An Alternative Scenario

    2016-01-01

    Based on the weakly-coupled two-Higgs-doublet model with spontaneous CP-violation (named Lee model) and the mechanism to generate the correlation between smallness of CP-violation and lightness of scalar mass, as we proposed earlier, we predicted a light CP-mixing scalar $\\eta$ in which pseudoscalar component is dominant. It is a natural scenario in which $m_{\\eta}\\sim\\mathcal{O}(10\\textrm{GeV})\\ll v$. Masses of all other scalars ($h$, $H$, $H^\\pm$) should be around the electro-weak scale $v$. Among them, the 125 GeV Higgs ($h$) couplings are standard-model like, and the charged Higgs ($H^\\pm$) mass should be around the heaviest neutral scalar ($H$) mass. We discussed all experimental constraints and showed that this scenario is still allowed by data. The strictest constraints come from the experiments of the flavor-changing processes and the EDM of lepton and neutron. We also discussed the future tests for this scenario. It is possible to discover the extra scalars or exclude this scenario at future collider...

    2008-01-01

    A left-right symmetric model with two Higgs bi-doublet is shown to be a consistent model for both spontaneous P and CP violation. The flavor changing neutral cur- rents can be suppressed by the mechanism of approximate global U(1) family symmetry. The constraints from neural K meson mass difference ΔmK are calcu- lated and it is demonstrated that a right-handed gauge boson W2 contribution in box-diagrams with mass well below 1 TeV is allowed due to a cancelation caused by a light-charged Higgs boson with a mass range of 150-300 GeV. The W2 con- tribution to εK can be suppressed from an appropriate choice of additional CP phases appearing in the right-handed Cabbibo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix. The model is also found to be fully consistent with B0 mass difference ΔmB and the mixing induced CP violation sin2βJ/ψ , which is usually difficult for the model with only one Higgs bi-doublet. The new physics beyond the standard model can be directly searched at the colliders LHC and ILC.

    We discuss possibilities of measuring CP violation in the Two-Higgs-Doublet Model by studying effects of one-loop generated $ZZZ$ and $ZWW$ vertices. We discuss a set of CP-sensitive asymmetries for $ZZ$ and $W^+W^-$ production at linear $e^+e^-$-colliders, that directly depends on the weak-basis invariant Im $J_2$ that parametrises the strength of CP violation. Given the restrictions on this model that follow from the LHC measurements, the predicted effects are small. Pursuing such measurements is however very important, as an observed signal might point to a richer scalar sector.

  2. About a possibility for observation of CP-violation in B-meson decays in fixed target experiments

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    An approach to rhe detection of CP-violation tn the decays of neutral B mesons at fixed target accelerators is suggested. This approach is feasible in experiments with high intensity hadron beams and, thus, allows one to employ one of the main advantages of fixed target accelerators. Possible systematic errors of the CP asymmetry measurement are also discussed. The Bo decays into J/ψ+Ks and J/ψ+Kl are considered as an optimum for the detection of CP-violation

    We present a measurement of the branching fractions and charge-parity (CP) violating parameters in B --> omega K decays. The results are obtained from the final data sample containing 772 million BBbar pairs collected at the {\\Upsilon}(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e+e- collider. We obtain the branching fractions, B(B0 --> omega K0) = (4.5+/- 0.4 (stat) +/- 0.3 (syst)) x 10^-6, B(B+ --> omega K+) = (6.8 +/- 0.4 (stat) +/- 0.4 (syst)) x 10^-6, which are in agreement with their respective current world averages. For the CP violating parameters we obtain, A (B0 --> omega K0S) = -0.36 +/- 0.19 (stat) +/- 0.05 (syst), S (B0 --> omega K0S) = +0.91 +/- 0.32 (stat) +/- 0.05 (syst), A (B+ --> omega K+) = -0.03 +/- 0.04 (stat) +/- 0.01 (syst), where A and S represent the direct and mixing-induced CP asymmetry, respectively. We find no evidence of CP violation in the decay channel B+ --> omega K+; however, we obtain the first evidence of CP violation in the B0 --> omega K0 decay cha...

  4. $W^{\\pm}H^{\\mp}$ associated production at LHC in the general 2HDM with Spontaneous CP Violation

    Bao, Shou-Shan; Wu, Yue-Liang

    2010-01-01

    Spontaneous CP violation motivates the introduction of two Higgs doublets in the electroweak theory. Such a simple extension of the standard model has three neutral Higgs bosons and a pair charged Higgs, especially it leads to rich $CP$-violating sources including the induced Kobayashi-Maskawa CP-violating phase, the mixing of the neutral Higgs bosons due to the $CP$-odd Higgs and the effective complex Yukawa couplings of the charged and neutral Higgs bosons. Within this model, we present the production of a charged Higgs boson in association with a W boson at the LHC, and calculate in detail the cross section and the transverse momentum distribution of the associated W boson.

    We search for CP violation in Cabibbo-suppressed charged D meson decays by measuring the difference between the CP-violating asymmetries for the Cabibbo-suppressed decays D±→K⁺ K⁻ π± and the Cabibbo-favored decays Ds± → K⁺K⁻ π± in the K⁺K⁻ mass region of the Φ resonance. Using 955 fb⁻¹ of data collected with the Belle detector, we obtain ACPD⁺→Φπ⁺ = (+0.51±0.28±0.05)%. The measurement improves the sensitivity of previous searches by more than a factor of 5.We find no evidence for direct CP violation.

  6. Standard Model CP and Baryon Number Violation in Cold Electroweak Cosmology

    Shuryak, E

    2011-01-01

    Contrary to popular beliefs, it is possible to explain Baryonic asymmetry of the Universe inside the Standard Model, provided inflation ended into a broken phase below the electroweak transition. Two important ingredients of the solution are multiquanta "Higgs bags", containing W,Z and top quarks, as well as sphaleron transitions happening inside these bags. Together, they provide baryon number violation at the level $10^{-2..3}$. Our recent calculations show that CP violation (due to the usual CKM matrix of quark masses in the 4-th order) leads to top-antitop population difference in these bags of about $10^{-9}$. (The numbers mentioned are not yet optimized and simply follow a choice made by some numerical simulations of the bosonic fields we used as a reference point.)

  7. CP Violation in Higgs Diphoton Decay in Models with Vectorlike Heavy Fermions

    CERN Document Server

    Voloshin, M B

    2012-01-01

    The amplitude of the diphoton decay of the Higgs boson is considered in an extension of the Standard Model involving heavy vectorlike fermions, which was recently suggested in the literature in order to explain a possible enhancement of the h -> gamma gamma decay rate. It is pointed out that generally in such models the decay amplitude acquires a sizable CP-odd contribution from the complex phases in the mass matrix of the new heavy fermions. The resulting CP violation in the diphoton decay can be studied experimentally when both photons are converted into e^+ e^- pairs by measuring the distribution over the angle between the planes of the pairs. Such measurement, if feasible, would be of a great interest of its own, even irrespective of specific models.

  8. Aspects of CP violation with the BABAR detector. Constraints on the CKM Matrix

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This document presents the work done within the BABAR Collaboration as well as a phenomenological study on the interpretation of the B measurements related to the Unitarity Triangle. The read-out electronics of the Cerenkov detector, the DIRC, and especially the Time-Digital-Converter designed at LPNHE are described. Two major results of the BABAR Collaboration are presented: the measurement of the sin(2β) parameter in the b → ccs modes, which has established the CP violation in the B sector in 2001 and the study of CP asymmetries in the B0 → π+π- channel. The constraints on the Unitarity Triangle from the K0K0 system, the B semi-leptonic decays, the B oscillation parameters are in excellent agreement with those from sin(2β) and α. (author)

    Neutrino beams are nowadays a commonly used and well investigated tool to study neutrino oscillations, e.g. T2K, NOνA experiments. Beam neutrinos are produced by the decays of properly focused particles, mostly pions and kaons, generated by the collisions of accelerated protons with a target. The shape and composition of the obtained neutrino fluxes depend on the properties of the neutrino production apparatus. Primary beam, target, focusing system, decay tunnel must be optimized relatively to the neutrino detector, in order to achieve the highest possible sensitivity to oscillation parameters such as the CP-violating phase δ{sub cp}. This talk will focus on the optimization of a neutrino beam from the European Spallation Source (ESS) in Lund, Sweden, to the liquid scintillator neutrino detector LENA, proposed in the Pyhaesalmi mine in Finland.

    We calculate the tree and penguin amplitudes in the $B^0\\to\\pi^+\\pi^-$ decay channel employing the perturbative QCD factorization approach. Using the amplitudes as input with the theoretical uncertainties sufficiently considered, we constrain the UT angle $\\gamma$ to $51^\\circ\\leq\\gamma\\leq64^\\circ$, from the measurements of the CP violation parameters $C_{\\pi^+\\pi^-}$ and $S_{\\pi^+\\pi^-}$ in $B^0\\to\\pi^+\\pi^-$. The U-spin breaking effect between $B^0\\to\\pi^+\\pi^-$ and $B_s^0\\to K^+K^-$ is estimated to be around 30\\%.

    The $U$-spin symmetry provides a powerful tool to extract the angle $\\gamma$ of the Unitarity Triangle and the $B_s^0$-$\\bar{B}_s^0$ mixing phase $\\phi_s$ from CP violation in the $B^0_s\\to K^-K^+$, $B^0_d\\to\\pi^-\\pi^+$ system. LHCb has obtained first results with uncertainties at the $7^\\circ$ level. Due to $U$-spin-breaking corrections, it will be challenging to reduce the uncertainty below ${\\cal O}(5^\\circ)$ at Belle II and the LHCb upgrade. We propose a new strategy, using $\\gamma$ as input and utilizing $B^0_s\\to K^-\\ell^+\

    We present measurements of time-dependent CP-violation asymmetries for the decays B0 to eta'K0. The data sample corresponds to 347 million BBbar pairs produced by e+e- annihilation at the Upsilon(4S) resonance in the PEP-II collider, and collected with the BaBar detector. The preliminary results are S = 0.55+/-0.11+/-0.002, and C = -0.15+/-0.07+/-0.03, where the first error quoted is statistical, the second systematic.

  13. Production of two Higgses at the Large Hadron Collider in CP-violating MSSM

    Production of two Higgs bosons is studied in a CP violating supersymmetric scenario at the Large Hadron Collider with $E_{cm}=14$ TeV. There exists a region where a very light Higgs $\\lesssim 50$ GeV could not be probed by LEP experiment. This leads to so called 'LEP hole' region. Recently LHC found a Higgs boson around $\\sim 125$ GeV, which severely constrains the possibility of having lighter Higgs bosons, which cannot be detected, i.e., buried Higgs, in this model. We investigate the possi...

    An analysis of $B^+ \\to DK^+$ and $B^+ \\to D\\pi^+$ decays is presented where the D meson is reconstructed in the two-body final states: $K^+\\pi-, K^+K^-, \\pi^+\\pi^-$ and $\\pi^+K^-$. Using 1.0 fb$^{-1}$ of LHCb data, measurements of several observables are made including the first observation of the suppressed mode $B^+ \\to DK^+, D \\to \\pi^+K^-$. CP violation in $B^+ \\to DK^+$ decays is observed with 5.8 $\\sigma$ significance.

    Full Text Available The most interesting cosmological open problems, baryon asymmetry, dark matter, inflation and dark energy, are not explained by the standard model of particle physics (SM. The finalgoal of the Large Hadron Collider an experimental verification of the SM in the Higgs sector, and also a search for evidence of new physics beyond it. In this paper we will report some of the results obtained in 2010 and 2011, from the LHCb experiment dedicated to the study of CP violations and rare decays of heavy quarks.

    The direct CP violation parameter Re($\\epsilon'/\\epsilon)$ has been measured from the decay rates of neutral kaons into two pions using the NA48 detector at the CERN SPS. The 2001 running period was devoted to collecting additional data under varied conditions compared to earlier years (1997-99). The new data yield the result: Re($\\epsilon'/\\epsilon)$=$(13.7\\pm3.1)\\ times10^{-4}$. Combining this result with that published from the 1997 98 and 99 data, an overall value of Re($\\epsilon'/\\epsilon)$=$(14.7\\pm2.2)\\times10^{-4 }$ is obtained from the NA48 experiment.

  17. Electroweak and CP violation physics at a linear collider Z-factory

    CERN Document Server

    Hawkings, R; Hawkings, Richard; Moenig, Klaus

    1999-01-01

    A future linear collider such as TESLA may be able to run on the Z0 resonance with very high luminosity and polarised electron and positron beams. The possibilities of measuring electroweak quantities with high precision are investigated. Huge improvements with respect to the present precision can be expected, especially for the asymmetries A_LR and A_b where beam polarisation can be exploited. The very large sample of Z to bbbar events also allows studies of various CP-violating b decays. The precision achievable on the CKM unitarity triangle angles is comparable to experiments at b factories and future hadron colliders.

    We discuss theoretical and experimental preparations for an indirect new physics search using the rare decay B to K*0 (to K pi) l+ l- focusing on CP violating observables. The separation of new physics effects and hadronic uncertainties is the key issue when using flavour observables in a new-physics search. Our analysis is based on QCD factorization and soft-collinear effective theory and critically examines the new physics reach of those observables via a detailed error analysis due to scal...

    The search for CP violating forces between nucleons in the so-called axion window of force ranges lam between 2x10^-5 m and 0.02 m is interesting because only little experimental information is available there. Axion-like particles would induce a pseudo-magnetic field for neutrons close to bulk matter. A laboratory search investigates neutron spin precession close to a heavy mirror using ultracold neutrons in a magnetic resonance spectrometer. From the absence of a shift of the magnetic reson...

    The Large Hadron Collider is shown to have great scope for a light charged Higgs discovery, in the context of the CP-violating type-I two Higgs doublet model. This scenario with similar masses of $H^\\pm$ and W was suggested by the puzzling departure from charged current lepton universality found in the LEP data. With the lightest neutral Higgs mass set to 125 GeV, the charged-neutral Higgs associated production mechanism can cause a significant excess in the $\\tau \

    We present the invited lectures given at the Third IDPASC School which took place in Santiago de Compostela in January 2013. The students attending the school had very different backgrounds, some of them were doing their Ph.D. in experimental particle physics, others in theory. As a result, and in order to make the lectures useful for most of the students, we focused on basic topics of broad interest, avoiding the more technical aspects of Flavour Physics and CP Violation. We make a brief rev...

    We analyze the prospects of a feasible, very long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment consisting of a conventional horn produced low energy wide band beam and a detector of 500 kT fiducial mass with modest requirements on event recognition and resolution. Such an experiment is intended primarily to measure CP violating effects in the neutrino sector for 3-generation mixing. We analyze the sensitivity of such an experiment. We conclude that this experiment will allow determination of the CP parameter $\\delta_{CP}$, if the currently unknown mixing parameter $\\sin ^2 2 \\theta_{13} \\geq 0.01$, a value about 10 times lower than the present experimental upper limit. In addition to $\\theta_{13}$ and $\\delta_{CP}$, the experiment has great potential for precise measurements of most other parameters in the neutrino mixing matrix including $\\Delta m^2_{32}$, $\\sin^2 2\\theta_{23}$, $\\Delta m^2_{21}\\times \\sin^2 2 \\theta_{12}$, and the mass ordering of neutrinos through the observation of the matter effect in the $\\...

    We utilise the LHC Run-1 and -2 Higgs data to constrain the CP-violating top-Higgs couplings. In order to satisfy the current full Higgs data sets at $2\\sigma$ level, the CP-odd component $C^p_t$ and the CP-even component $C^s_t$ have to be within the ranges $|C^p_t|< 0.37$ and $0.85 CP-violating top-Higgs couplings in the Higgs production processes $pp \\to t\\bar{t}h, thj, hh$ at 13 TeV LHC, and $e^+e^- \\to hZ, h\\gamma$ at future 240 GeV Higgs factories. We find that the cross sections of $pp \\to t\\bar{t}h$, $pp \\to thj$, $pp \\to hh$, $e^+e^- \\to hZ$ and $e^+e^- \\to h\\gamma$ can be enhanced up to 1.41, 1.18, 2.20, 1.02 and 1.09 times as large as the SM predictions, respectively. At a 240 GeV $e^+e^-$ Higgs factory, the precision measurement of the process $e^+e^- \\to hZ$ with an accuracy of 0.4\\% will be able to further constrain $|...

    We report a measurement of the time-dependent CP asymmetry of B0->D(*)CP h0 decays, where the light neutral hadron h0 is a pi0, eta or omega meson, and the neutral D meson is reconstructed in the CP eigenstates K+ K-, K0S pi0 or K0S omega. The measurement is performed combining the final data samples collected at the Y(4S) resonance by the BaBar and Belle experiments at the asymmetric-energy B factories PEP-II at SLAC and KEKB at KEK, respectively. The data samples contain ( 471 +/- 3 ) x 10^6 BB pairs recorded by the BaBar detector and ( 772 +/- 11 ) x 10^6, BB pairs recorded by the Belle detector. We measure the CP asymmetry parameters -eta_f S = +0.66 +/- 0.10 (stat.) +/- 0.06 (syst.) and C = -0.02 +/- 0.07 (stat.) +/- 0.03 (syst.). These results correspond to the first observation of CP violation in B0->D(*)CP h0 decays. The hypothesis of no mixing-induced CP violation is excluded in these decays at the level of 5.4 standard deviations.

    The CDF experiment, which uses p$\\bar{p}$ collisions at √s = 1.9 TeV produced at the Fermilab Tevatron, is unique in its ability to observe all flavors of B hadrons and measure their properties. Among them, CP violation is of fundamental interest. In the B+ and B0 systems, measurements of CP violation parameters performed essentially at B factories have borne out the predictions of CKM model. Little is known, experimentally, about CP violation in the Bs0 system. The standard model predicts very little CP violation there, thus any nonzero measurement could be an indication of new physics. In this thesis, we will report on the very first flavor-tagged analysis of approximately 2000 Bs0 → J/ΨΦ decays reconstructed in a 1.35 fb-1 data sample collected at CDF. This channel is sensitive not only to the width difference ΔΓ in the B{sub s}{sup 0} system but also to the CP violation parameter βs. The final result we obtain is a confidence region in the two dimensional space of βs and ΔΓ. Assuming the standard model predictions of βs and ΔΓ, the probability is 15%, corresponding to 1.5 Gaussian standard deviations.

  7. FPCP 2003. Proceedings of the Second International Conference on Flavor Physics and CP Violation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The second International Conference on Flavor Physics and CP Violation, FPCP 2003, was held on the former campus of Ecole Polytechnique, in the heart of the 'Quartier Latin', in Paris, France, June 3-6, 2003. The 'Carre des Sciences' organization, located on the Descartes site within the French Ministry of Research and Technology, hosted the Conference which was open to all experimental and theoretical physicists interested in the field. FPCP 2003 is the second in a series of conferences, the first one in 2002 at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, USA. The third conference will be held in fall 2004 in Daegu, Korea, October 4-9. FPCP came about as the result of the merging of two major high-energy physics events: the annual Heavy Flavor Physics Conference (founded by Klaus Schubert), and the bi-annual International Conference on B Physics and CP Violation (founded by A.I. [Tony] Sanda). The proceedings of the FPCP 2003 has the following contents: Foreword; Conference Organization; Contents; Introduction and Hot Topics; More Experimental Results and Theoretical Interpretations; Sub-dominant Bd and Bs decays, B lifetime, mixing, etc.; Radiative and other B decays; Charm Physics; Kaon Physics and Theoretical Contributions; Theory for hadronic B decays, charmonium and semileptonic, etc.; Experiments; τ physics and other c-factory/Tevatron topics; Neutrino physics and Cosmology; Summary and Outlook

    We report final measurements of direct $\\mathit{CP}$--violating asymmetries in charmless decays of neutral bottom hadrons to pairs of charged hadrons with the upgraded Collider Detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. Using the complete $\\sqrt{s}=1.96$ TeV proton-antiproton collisions data set, corresponding to \\mbox{9.3 fb$^{-1}$} of integrated luminosity, we measure $\\mathcal{A}(\\Lambda^0_b \\rightarrow p\\pi^{-}) = +0.06 \\pm 0.07\\mathrm{(stat)} \\pm 0.03\\mathrm{(syst)}$ and $\\mathcal{A}(\\Lambda^0_b \\rightarrow pK^{-}) = -0.10 \\pm 0.08\\mathrm{(stat)} \\pm 0.04\\mathrm{(syst)}$, compatible with no asymmetry. In addition we measure the $\\mathit{CP}$--violating asymmetries in $B^0_s \\rightarrow K^{-}\\pi^{+}$ and $B^0 \\rightarrow K^{+}\\pi^{-}$ decays to be $\\mathcal{A}(B^0_s \\rightarrow K^{-}\\pi^{+}) = +0.22 \\pm 0.07\\mathrm{stat)} \\pm 0.02\\mathrm{(syst)}$ and $\\mathcal{A}(B^0 \\rightarrow K^{+}\\pi^{-}) = -0.083\\pm 0.013 \\mathrm{(stat)} \\pm 0.004\\mathrm{(syst)}$, respectively, which are significantly different from zero and...

    This work 1s the result of a one year stay as a technical student in the NA48 group at the European Center for Nuclear Research CERN from May 1992 to May 1993. The NA48 experiment is a fixed target experiment at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) to study direct CP violation in neutral kaon decays. The aim of the experiment is the measurement of the ratio of the CP violation parameters £ '/£. Chapter 1 will explain the origin of these parameters and our current knowledge of their size. Chapter 2 will give a description of the NA48 experiment. A crucial part of the experiment will be a photon calorimeter filled with liquid krypton. It has to meet very ambitious demands concerning the high rate capability and the energy, space and time resolutions. In chapter 3 the principles of electromagnetic calorimetry and ionization chambers are reviewed. In 1992 two test beam exposures of a prototype of the liquid krypton calorimeter were performed. A description of these tests will be given in chapter 4. During th...

    We report final measurements of direct CP-violating asymmetries in charmless decays of neutral bottom hadrons to pairs of charged hadrons with the upgraded Collider Detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. Using the complete √s=1.96  TeV proton-antiproton collisions data set, corresponding to 9.3  fb⁻¹ of integrated luminosity, we measure A(Λ(b)⁰→pπ⁻)=+0.06±0.07(stat)±0.03(syst) and A(Λ(b)⁰→pK⁻)=-0.10±0.08(stat)±0.04(syst), compatible with no asymmetry. In addition we measure the CP-violating asymmetries in B(s)⁰→K⁻π⁺ and B⁰→K⁺π⁻ decays to be A(B(s)⁰→K⁻π⁺)=+0.22±0.07(stat)±0.02(syst) and A(B⁰→K⁺π⁻)=-0.083±0.013(stat)±0.004(syst), respectively, which are significantly different from zero and consistent with current world averages.

  11. Higgs pair productions in the CP-violating two-Higgs-doublet model

    2016-09-01

    In this work, we study the SM-like Higgs pair productions in the framework of the general CP-violating two-Higgs-doublet model. Several constraints are imposed to the model sequentially, including the SM-like Higgs boson signal fits, the precise measurements of the electric dipole moments, the perturbative unitarity and stability bounds to the Higgs potential, and the most recent LHC searches for the heavy Higgs bosons. We show how the CP-violating mixing angles are related to the Higgs cubic self couplings in this setup. Based on these constraints, we suggest benchmark models for the future high-energy collider searches for the Higgs pair productions. The e + e - colliders operating at √{s} = (500 GeV, 1 TeV) are capable of measuring the Higgs cubic self couplings of the benchmark models directly. Afterwards, we estimate the cross sections of the resonance contributions to the Higgs pair productions for the benchmark models at the future LHC and SppC/Fcc-hh runs. Other possible decay modes for the heavy Higgs bosons are also discussed.

    2003-07-01

    The second International Conference on Flavor Physics and CP Violation, FPCP 2003, was held on the former campus of Ecole Polytechnique, in the heart of the 'Quartier Latin', in Paris, France, June 3-6, 2003. The 'Carre des Sciences' organization, located on the Descartes site within the French Ministry of Research and Technology, hosted the Conference which was open to all experimental and theoretical physicists interested in the field. FPCP 2003 is the second in a series of conferences, the first one in 2002 at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, USA. The third conference will be held in fall 2004 in Daegu, Korea, October 4-9. FPCP came about as the result of the merging of two major high-energy physics events: the annual Heavy Flavor Physics Conference (founded by Klaus Schubert), and the bi-annual International Conference on B Physics and CP Violation (founded by A.I. [Tony] Sanda). The proceedings of the FPCP 2003 has the following contents: Foreword; Conference Organization; Contents; Introduction and Hot Topics; More Experimental Results and Theoretical Interpretations; Sub-dominant B{sub d} and B{sub s} decays, B lifetime, mixing, etc.; Radiative and other B decays; Charm Physics; Kaon Physics and Theoretical Contributions; Theory for hadronic B decays, charmonium and semileptonic, etc.; Experiments; {tau} physics and other c-factory/Tevatron topics; Neutrino physics and Cosmology; Summary and Outlook.

    2008-01-01

    We develop a comprehensive description of three flavor neutrino oscillations inside the Earth in terms of neutrino oscillograms in the whole range of nadir angles and for energies above 0.1 GeV. The effects of the 1-2 mass splitting and mixing as well the interference of the 1-2 and 1-3 modes of oscillations are quantified. The 1-2 mass splitting and mixing lead to the appearance, apart from the resonance MSW peaks, of the parametric resonance peak for core-crossing trajectories at E_nu ~= 0.2 GeV. We show that the interference effects, in particular CP violation, have a domain structure with borders determined by the solar and atmospheric magic lines and the lines of the interference phase condition. The dependence of the oscillograms on the Dirac CP-violating phase is studied. We show that for sin^2(2 theta13) << 0.1 the strongest dependence of the oscillograms on delta is in the 1-2 and 1-3 resonance regions.

    2000-01-01

    We perform a systematic study of the one-loop renormalization-group-improved effective potential of the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM), including CP violation induced radiatively by soft trilinear interactions related to squarks of the third generation. We calculate the charged and neutral Higgs-boson masses and couplings, including the two-loop logarithmic corrections that arise from QCD effects, as well as those associated with the top- and bottom-quark Yukawa couplings. We also include the potentially large two-loop non-logarithmic corrections induced by one-loop threshold effects on the top- and bottom-quark Yukawa couplings, due to the decoupling of the third-generation squarks. Within this minimal CP-violating framework, the charged and neutral Higgs sectors become intimately related to one another and therefore require a unified treatment. In the limit of a large charged Higgs-boson mass, $M_{H^{\\pm}} \\gg M_Z$, the lightest neutral Higgs boson resembles that in the Standa...

  15. Search for $CP$ violation in $D^0\\rightarrow \\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^0$ decays with the energy test

    The LHCb experiment has recorded the world's largest sample of charmed meson decays. This contribution presents a study of a $D^0$ meson decaying into a final state containing a neutral pion in LHCb. The search for $CP$ violation exploits a novel model-independent unbinned technique to assign a $p$-value for the no $CP$ violation hypothesis. With a data sample size exceeding that of previous measurements by almost an order of magnitude the world's best sensitivity is obtained. The $p$-value of no $CP$ violation hypothesis given data of $D^0\\rightarrow \\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^0$ decay analysed is found to be $(2.6 \\pm 0.5)\\times 10^{-2}$.

    We present preliminary measurements of the CP-violating asymmetries in the decay $B^0\\to f_0(980)(\\to\\pi^+\\pi^{-}) K_s^0$. The results are obtained from a data sample of $209\\times10^6$ $\\Upsilon(4S) \\to B\\bar{B}$ decays collected with the BaBar detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy $B$ Factory at SLAC. From a time-dependent maximum-likelihood fit we measure the mixing-induced CP violation parameter $S=-0.95^{+0.32}_{-0.23} \\pm 0.10$ and the direct CP violation parameter $C=-0.24\\pm 0.31 \\pm 0.15 $, where the first errors are statistical and the second systematic.

    The next generation neutrino observatory proposed by the LBNO collaboration will address fundamental questions in particle and astroparticle physics. The experiment consists of a far detector, in its first stage a 20 kt LAr double phase TPC and a magnetised iron calorimeter, situated at 2300 km from CERN and a near detector based on a high-pressure argon gas TPC. The long baseline provides a unique opportunity to study neutrino flavour oscillations over their 1st and 2nd oscillation maxima exploring the $L/E$ behaviour, and distinguishing effects arising from $\\delta_{CP}$ and matter. In this paper we have reevaluated the physics potential of this setup for determining the mass hierarchy (MH) and discovering CP-violation (CPV), using a conventional neutrino beam from the CERN SPS with a power of 750 kW. We use conservative assumptions on the knowledge of oscillation parameter priors and systematic uncertainties. The impact of each systematic error and the precision of oscillation prior is shown. We demonstrat...

    The recent Belle and Babar measurements of the branching ratios $B^- \\to \\pi^+ \\pi^- K^-$ and $B^- \\to K^+ K^- K^-$ and $B^\\pm \\to \\chi_{c0} K^\\pm$ have renewed interests in these decays as another mean to look for direct CP violation in B decays. In this talk, I would like to discuss a recent analysis of the CP violating asymmetry in the partial widths for the decays $B^- \\to \\pi^+ \\pi^- K^-$ and $B^- \\to K^+ K^- K^-$, which results from the interference of the non resonant amplitude with th...

    We report a search for CP violation in the decay {tau}{sup -} {yields} {pi}{sup -}K{sub S}{sup 0}({>=} 0{pi}{sup 0}){nu}{sub {tau}} using a dataset of 437 million {tau} lepton pairs, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 476 fb{sup -1}, collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric energy e{sup +}e{sup -} storage rings. The CP-violating decay-rate asymmetry is determined to be (-0.45 {+-} 0.24 {+-} 0.11)%, approximately three standard deviations from the Standard Model prediction of (0.33 {+-} 0.01)%.

    We present a preliminary measurement of CP-violation parameters S and C from fits of the time-dependence of B0 meson decays to eta' K0. The data were recorded with the BaBar detector at PEP-II and correspond to 227 million B Bbar pairs produced in e+ e- annihilation through the Y(4S) resonance. From a maximum likelihood fit we measure the CP-violation parameters S=0.27 +- 0.14(stat) +- 0.03(syst)

    We present world average values for D0- mixing parameters x and y, CP violation parameters |q/P| and Arg(q/p), and strong phase differences δ and δKππ. These values are calculated by the Heavy Flavor Averaging Group (HFAG) by performing a global fit to relevant experimental measurements. The results for x and y differ significantly from zero and are inconsistent with no mixing at the level of 6.7σ. The results for |q/P| and Arg(q/p) are consistent with no CP violation. The strong phase difference δ is less than 45° at 95% C.L.

    Measurements of charm mixing parameters from the decay-time-dependent ratio of D0 → K+ π- to D0 → K- π+ rates and the charge-conjugate ratio are reported. The analysis uses data, corresponding to 3  fb(-1) of integrated luminosity, from proton-proton collisions at 7 and 8 TeV center-of-mass energies recorded by the LHCb experiment. In the limit of charge-parity (CP ) symmetry, the mixing parameters are determined to be x'2=(5.5±4.9)×10(-5), y'=(4.8±1.0)×10(-3), and RD=(3.568±0.066)×10(-3). Allowing for CP violation, the measurement is performed separately for D0 and D0 mesons yielding AD=(-0.7±1.9)%, for the direct CP-violating asymmetry, and 0.75<|q/p|<1.24 at the 68.3% confidence level, for the parameter describing CP violation in mixing. This is the most precise determination of these parameters from a single experiment and shows no evidence for CP violation.

    We present a class of cancellation conditions for suppressing the total contributions of Barr-Zee diagrams to the electron electric dipole moment (eEDM). Such a cancellation is of particular significance after the new eEDM upper limit was released by the ACME Collaboration, which strongly constrains the allowed magnitude of CP violation in Higgs couplings and hence the feasibility of electroweak baryogenesis (EWBG). Explicitly, if both the CP-odd Higgs-photon-photon (Z boson) and the CP-odd Higgs-electron-positron couplings are turned on, a cancellation may occur either between the contributions of a CP-mixing Higgs boson, with the other Higgs bosons being decoupled, or between the contributions of CP-even and CP-odd Higgs bosons. With a cancellation, large CP violation in the Higgs sector is still allowed, yielding successful EWBG. The reopened parameter regions would be probed by future neutron, mercury EDM measurements, and direct measurements of Higgs CP properties at the Large Hadron Collider Run II and future colliders.

    The Standard Model (SM) of particle physics successfully describes all of the observed interactions of the fundamental particles (with the exception of non-zero neutrino mass). Despite this enormous success, the SM is widely viewed as an incomplete theory. For example, the size of the asymmetry between matter and antimatter is not nearly large enough to account for the abundance of matter observed throughout the universe. It is thus believed that as-yet-unknown physical phenomena must exist that introduce new asymmetries between matter and antimatter. In this thesis, by studying decays that happen only rarely in the SM, we make measurements of asymmetries between matter and antimatter that are potentially sensitive to the existence of processes beyond the SM. At the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B Factory at SLAC, electrons and positrons are collided at the {Upsilon}(4S) resonance to create pairs of B mesons. The BABAR detector is used to measure the subsequent decay products. Using 383 million {Upsilon}(4S) {yields} B{bar B} decays, we study the decay B{sup 0} {yields} K{sup +}K{sup -}K{sup 0}. In the SM, this decay is dominated by loop amplitudes. Asymmetries between matter and antimatter (CP asymmetries) are extracted by measuring the time-dependence of the complex amplitudes describing the B{sup 0} and {bar B}{sup 0} decays as functions of their kinematics. The interference between decays with and without the mixing of neutral B mesons allows for the measurement of the angle {beta}{sub eff}, which is a measure of CP violation. We also measure the direct CP asymmetry A{sub CP}. Data samples reconstructed from three K{sup 0} modes (K{sub S}{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}, K{sub S}{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}, and K{sub L}{sup 0}) are fit simultaneously. They find A{sub CP} = -0.015 {+-} 0.077 {+-} 0.053 and {beta}{sub eff} = 0.352 {+-} 0.076 {+-} 0.026 rad, corresponding to a CP violation significance of 4.8{sigma}. A second solution near {pi}/2

The BABAR detector is used to measure the subsequent decay products. Using 383 million Υ(4S) → B$\\bar{B}$ decays, we study the decay B0 → K+K-K0. In the SM, this decay is dominated by loop amplitudes. Asymmetries between matter and antimatter (CP asymmetries) are extracted by measuring the time-dependence of the complex amplitudes describing the B0 and $\\bar{B}$0 decays as functions of their kinematics. The interference between decays with and without the mixing of neutral B mesons allows for the measurement of the angle βeff, which is a measure of CP violation. We also measure the direct CP asymmetry ACP. Data samples reconstructed from three K0 modes (KS0 → π+π-, KS0 → π0π0, and KL0) are fit simultaneously. They find ACP = -0.015 ± 0.077 ± 0.053 and βeff = 0.352 ± 0.076 ± 0.026 rad, corresponding to a CP violation

    In this dissertation, we present the results of a time-dependent angular analysis of B{sub s} {yields} J/{psi}{phi} decays performed with the use of initial-state flavor tagging. CP violation is observed in this mode through the interference of decay without net mixing and decay with net mixing, that is, B{sub s} {yields} J/{psi}{phi} and B{sub s} {yields} {bar B}{sub s} {yields} J/{psi}{phi}. The time-dependent angular analysis is used to extract the decay widths of the heavy and light B{sub s} eigenstates and the difference between these decay widths {Delta}{Lambda}{sub s} {triple_bond} {Lambda}{sub s}{sup L}-{Lambda}{sub s}{sup H}. Initial-state flavor tagging is used to determine the matter-antimatter content of the B{sub s} mesons at production time. We combine flavor tagging with the angular analysis, which statistically determines the contributions of the CP-even and CP-odd components at decay time, to measure the CP-violating phase {beta}{sub s}. The phase {beta}{sub s} is expressed in terms of elements of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix as {beta}{sub s} {triple_bond} arg (-V{sub ts}V*{sub tb}/V{sub cs}V*{sub cb}), and is predicted by the Standard Model to be close to zero, {beta}{sub s}{sup SM} = 0.02. In the measurement of {Delta}{Lambda}{sub s}, we use a dataset corresponding to 1.7 fb{sup -1} of luminosity, collected at the CDF experiment from proton-antiproton collisions at a center of mass energy {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. In the measurement of {beta}{sub s}, we use a dataset corresponding to 1.3 fb{sup -1} of collected luminosity. We measure {Delta}{Lambda}{sub s} = (0.071{sub -0.059}{sup +0.064} {+-} 0.007) ps{sup -1} using the time-dependent angular analysis. Combining the angular analysis with flavor-tagging, we find that assuming the Standard Model predictions of {beta}{sub s} and {Delta}{Lambda}{sub s}, the probability of a deviation as large as the level of the observed data is 33%. We obtain a suite of associated results which are discussed

    In this dissertation, we present the results of a time-dependent angular analysis of Bs → J/ΨΦ decays performed with the use of initial-state flavor tagging. CP violation is observed in this mode through the interference of decay without net mixing and decay with net mixing, that is, Bs → J/ΨΦ and Bs → $\\bar{B}$s → J/ΨΦ . The time-dependent angular analysis is used to extract the decay widths of the heavy and light Bs eigenstates and the difference between these decay widths ΔΓs {triple_bond} ΓsLsH. Initial-state flavor tagging is used to determine the matter-antimatter content of the Bs mesons at production time. We combine flavor tagging with the angular analysis, which statistically determines the contributions of the CP-even and CP-odd components at decay time, to measure the CP-violating phase βs. The phase βs is expressed in terms of elements of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix as βs {triple_bond} arg (-VtsV*tb/VcsV*cb), and is predicted by the Standard Model to be close to zero, βsSM = 0.02. In the measurement of ΔΓs, we use a dataset corresponding to 1.7 fb-1 of luminosity, collected at the CDF experiment from proton-antiproton collisions at a center of mass energy √s = 1.96 TeV. In the measurement of βs, we use a dataset corresponding to 1.3 fb-1 of collected luminosity. We measure ΔΓs = (0.071-0.059+0.064 ± 0.007) ps-1 using the time-dependent angular analysis. Combining the angular analysis with flavor-tagging, we find that assuming the Standard Model predictions of βs and ΔΓs, the probability of a deviation as large as the level of the observed data is 33%.

    We report on a search for CP asymmetry in the singly Cabibbo-suppressed decay D+ -> K+ K- pi+ using a data sample of 818 pb$^{-1}$ accumulated with the CLEO-c detector on the $\\psi(3770)$ resonance. A Dalitz-plot analysis is used to determine the amplitudes of the intermediate states. We find no evidence for CP violation either in specific two-body amplitudes or integrated over the entire phase space. The CP asymmetry in the latter case is measured to be (-0.03\\pm0.84\\pm 0.29)%.

    Overconstraining the unitarity triangle is a key goal of LHCb. The excellent time resolution of the detector lends itself to high precision time dependent CP violation measurements. CP observables in $B^0 \\to D^{+}D^{‐}$ decays are of great interest as they have the potential to be sensitive to new physics contributions. There is a long¬‐existing tension between results from BaBar and Belle on $B^0 \\to D^{+}D^{‐}$. We present results on these CP observables with the full Run 1 dataset.

  12. Study of the CP-violating effects with gg → Η → τ+τ– process

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Study of the gg → Η → τ+τ– process was performed at Monte Carlo level within the framework of searching for CP-violating effects. The sensitivity of chosen observables to CP-parity of the Higgs boson was demonstrated for hadronic 1-prong τ decays (τ± → π±, ρ±). Monte Carlo samples for the gg → Η → τ+τ- process were generated including the parton hadronisation to final state particles. This generation was performed for the Standard Model Higgs boson, the pseudoscalar Higgs boson, the Z → τ+τ– background, and mixed CP-states of the Higgs boson

  13. Test of CP violation on $b\\bar{b}$ pairs from top quark decay

    2016-01-01

    Top pair events provide a source of $b\\bar{b}$ pairs, which can be used to probe CP violation in heavy-flavour mixing and decay. In events where one of the $W$ bosons decays leptonically to an electron or muon, the charge of the $W$ boson can be used to determine unambiguously the flavour charge of the accompanying b quark at the time of its production. In cases where the $b$ also decays semileptonically to a muon, this sample allows to probe two charge asymmetries constructed with the charge signs of the $W$ and the soft muon. The first measurement of the charge asymmetries in $b\\bar{b}$ from top pair decays is hence presented using the data collected with the ATLAS detector during the 8 TeV run of the LHC.

    We study Higgs diphoton decays, in which both photons undergo nuclear conversion to electron- positron pairs. The kinematic distribution of the two electron-positron pairs may be used to probe the CP violating (CPV) coupling of the Higgs to photons, that may be produced by new physics. Detecting CPV in this manner requires interference between the spin-polarized helicity amplitudes for both conversions. We derive leading order, analytic forms for these amplitudes. In turn, we obtain compact, leading-order expressions for the full process rate. While performing experiments involving photon conversions may be challenging, we use the results of our analysis to construct experimental cuts on certain observables that may enhance sensitivity to CPV. We show that there exist regions of phase space on which sensitivity to CPV is of order unity. The statistical sensitivity of these cuts are verified numerically, using dedicated Monte-Carlo simulations.

    Measurements are presented of the CP violation observables S and C in the decays of B(0) and Bover ¯]0 mesons to the J/ψK(S)(0) final state. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 3.0  fb(-1) collected with the LHCb experiment in proton-proton collisions at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, and contains a total of 41 560 selected B^{0} and B[over ¯]^{0} decays. The analysis of the time evolution of these decays yields S=0.731±0.035(stat)±0.020(syst) and C=-0.038±0.032(stat)±0.005(syst). In the standard model, S equals sin(2β) to a good level of precision. The values are consistent with the current world averages and with the standard model expectations. PMID:26230782

    We calculate the tree and penguin amplitudes in the B0 → π+π- decay channel employing the perturbative QCD factorization approach. Using the amplitudes as input with the theoretical uncertainties sufficiently considered, we constrain the UT angle γ to 53° ⩽ γ ⩽ 70°, from the measurements of the CP violation parameters C π+π- and S π+π- in B0 → π+π-. The U-spin breaking effect between B0 → π+π- and is estimated to be around 30%.

    The phase phi /sub +-/ is evaluated on the basis of measurements of the K/sub S/-K/sub L/ interference in the pi /sup +/ pi /sup -/ decay mode and the mass difference Delta m. The result is: phi /sub +-/=45.9 degrees +or-1.6 degrees . This, together with previous results on mod eta /sub +-/ mod , mod eta /sub 00// eta /sub +-/ mod and the charge asymmetry delta in leptonic decay, is compared with the prediction of the superweak model, with good agreement. Finally the result is used to find, on the basis of unitarity, a new upper limit on CP violation in the decay K degrees to 3 pi degrees . This limit is mod eta /sub 000/ mod /sup 2/

  18. $CP$ violation and CKM studies (and first LHCb Run II results)

    The LHC is the new $b$-hadron factory and will be dominating flavour physics until the start of Belle II, and beyond in many decay modes. While the $B$ factories and Tevatron experiments are still analysing their data, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb are producing interesting new results in $CP$ violation and rare decays, that set strong constraints on models beyond that SM and exhibit some discrepancies with the SM predictions. The LHCb collaboration used the LHC 50 ns ramp-up period of July 2015 to measure the double-differential $J/\\psi$, $J/\\psi$-from-$b$-hadron and charm crosssections at $\\sqrt s$ = 13 TeV. Both measurements were performed directly on triggered candidates using a reduced data format that does not require offline processing.

    It has been pointed out that, with its high energy and luminosity, the SSC may provide the best or only way in which CP violation in heavy meson decays or the rare decay modes of such mesons can be observed. The major problem in the exploitation of the high rates of heavy quark production is the identification of interesting decays in the midst of a large background of more conventional processes. There have been some optimistic reports on the feasibility of such experiments, but relatively little quantitative backup has been provided. In the present report, we concentrate exclusively on B-meson decays. As is the case for K mesons, but not for charm or top decays, the favored modes are suppressed by the smallness of Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa angles, and therefore rare modes are relatively more frequent and potentially easier to observe.

    Measurements are presented of the $CP$ violation observables $S$ and $C$ in the decays of $B^0$ and $\\overline{B}{}^0$ mesons to the $J/\\psi K^0_S$ final state. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of $3.0\\,\\text{fb}^{-1}$ collected with the LHCb experiment in proton-proton collisions at center-of-mass energies of $7$ and $8\\,\\text{TeV}$. The analysis of the time evolution of $41500$ $B^0$ and $\\overline{B}{}^0$ decays yields $S = 0.731 \\pm 0.035 \\, \\text{(stat)} \\pm 0.020 \\,\\text{(syst)}$ and $C = -0.038 \\pm 0.032 \\, \\text{(stat)} \\pm 0.005\\,\\text{(syst)}$. In the Standard Model, $S$ equals $\\sin(2\\beta)$ to a good level of precision. The values are consistent with the current world averages and with the Standard Model expectations.

    2003-01-01

    We report on a search for CP violation in the decay of D0 and D0B to Kshort pi+pi-. The data come from an integrated luminosity of 9.0 1/fb of e+e- collisions at sqrt(s) ~ 10 GeV recorded with the CLEO II.V detector. The resonance substructure of this decay is well described by ten quasi-two-body decay channels (K*-pi+, K*0(1430)-pi+, K*2(1430)-pi+, K*(1680)-pi+, Kshort rho, Kshort omega, Kshort f0(980), Kshort f2(1270), Kshort f0(1370), and the ``wrong sign'' K*+ pi-) plus a small non-resona...

    We present new measurements of the six largest branching fractions of the KL using data collected in 1997 by the KTeV experiment (E832) at Fermilab. The results are B(KL -> pi e nu) = 0.4067 +- 0.0011 B(KL -> pi mu nu) = 0.2701 +- 0.0009 B(KL -> pi+ pi- pi0) = 0.1252 +- 0.0007 B(KL -> pi0 pi0 pi0) = 0.1945 +- 0.0018 B(KL -> pi+ pi-) = (1.975 +- 0.012)E-3, and B(KL -> pi0 pi0) = (0.865 +- 0.010)E-3, where statistical and systematic errors have been summed in quadrature. We also determine the CP violation parameter |eta+-| to be (2.228 +- 0.010)E-3. Several of these results are not in good agreement with averages of previous measurements.

  6. Neutrino mixing and CP violation phases in Zee-Babu model

    Van Vien, Vo; Thu, Pham Ngoc

    2014-01-01

    We show that the neutrino mass matrix of the Zee-Babu model is able to fit the most recent data on neutrino masses and mixing with large $\\theta_{13}$ and provides %the values of the Dirac and Majorana CP violation phases. For the normal hierarchy, the Majorana phases ($\\al_{2 1}, \\al_{3 1}$) are equal to zero, while for the inverted pattern, one phase ($\\al_{3 1}$) takes the value $2 \\pi$. The Dirac phase ($\\de$) is predicted to either $0$ or $\\pi$. The effective mass governing neutrinoless double beta decay and the sum of neutrino masses are consistent with the recent analysis. The model gives some regions of the parameters of neutrino mixing angles in both normal and inverted neutrino mass hierarchy.

    Keus, Venus; Moretti, Stefano; Yagyu, Kei

    2015-01-01

    Two-Higgs-Doublet Models (2HDMs) are amongst the simplest extensions of the Standard Model. Such models allow for tree-level CP Violation (CPV) in the Higgs sector. We analyse a class of CPV 2HDM (of Type-I) in which only one of the two Higgs doublets couples to quarks and leptons, avoiding dangerous Flavour Changing Neutral Currents. We provide an up to date and comprehensive analysis of the constraints and Large Hadron Collider (LHC) predictions of such a model. Of immediate interest to the LHC Run 2 is the golden channel where all three neutral Higgs bosons are observed to decay into gauge boson pairs, $WW$ and $ZZ$, providing a smoking gun signature of the CPV 2HDM.

    2009-01-01

    We discuss theoretical and experimental preparations for an indirect new physics search using the rare decay B to K*0 (to K pi) l+ l- focusing on CP violating observables. The separation of new physics effects and hadronic uncertainties is the key issue when using flavour observables in a new-physics search. Our analysis is based on QCD factorization and soft-collinear effective theory and critically examines the new physics reach of those observables via a detailed error analysis due to scale dependences, form factors, and other input parameters; we also explore the experimental sensitivities at LHCb using a full-angular fit method; finally, we make the impact of the unknown Lambda/mb corrections manifest in our theoretical predictions.

  9. Focus Point Supersymmetry Proton Decay, Flavor and CP Violation, and the Higgs Boson Mass

    Feng, J L; Feng, Jonathan L; Matchev, Konstantin T.

    2001-01-01

    In focus point supersymmetry, all squarks and sleptons, including those of the third generation, have multi-TeV masses without sacrificing naturalness. We examine the implications of this framework for low energy constraints and the light Higgs boson mass. Undesirable contributions to proton decay and electric dipole moments, generic in many supersymmetric models, are strongly suppressed. As a result, the prediction for alpha_s in simple grand unified theories is 3 to 5 standard deviations closer to the experimental value, and the allowed CP-violating phases are larger by one to two orders of magnitude. In addition, the very heavy top and bottom squarks of focus point supersymmetry naturally produce a Higgs boson mass at or above 115 GeV without requiring heavy gauginos. We conclude with an extended discussion of issues related to the definition of naturalness and comment on several other prescriptions given in the literature.

    Measurements are presented of the CP violation observables S and C in the decays of B(0) and Bover ¯]0 mesons to the J/ψK(S)(0) final state. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 3.0  fb(-1) collected with the LHCb experiment in proton-proton collisions at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, and contains a total of 41 560 selected B^{0} and B[over ¯]^{0} decays. The analysis of the time evolution of these decays yields S=0.731±0.035(stat)±0.020(syst) and C=-0.038±0.032(stat)±0.005(syst). In the standard model, S equals sin(2β) to a good level of precision. The values are consistent with the current world averages and with the standard model expectations.

  11. LHC explores what LEP hinted at: CP-violating type-I 2HDM

    The Large Hadron Collider is shown to have great scope for a light charged Higgs discovery, in the context of the CP-violating type-I two Higgs doublet model. This scenario with similar masses of H+ and W was suggested by the puzzling departure from charged current lepton universality found in the LEP data. With the lightest neutral Higgs mass set to 125 GeV, the charged-neutral Higgs associated production mechanism can cause a significant excess in the tau nu b b-bar events over a vast range of tan beta as long as the Higgs mixing pattern avoids a few limiting cases. Thanks to the low H+ mass, the charged Higgs loop can play a striking role in neutral Higgs decays into gamma gamma, thereby compensating for a suppressed gluon-gluon fusion rate. The effect of scalar-pseudo-scalar mixing on loop-induced Higgs signals is also discussed.

  12. Studying indirect violation of CP, T and CPT in a B-factory

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this work we analyze the observable asymmetries one can build from entangled B-meson states, in order to extract information on the parameters ε and δ which govern indirect violation of discrete symmetries. The traditionally proposed observables, based on flavour tags, are not helpful for the study of the Bd-system, where the tiny value of ΔΓ clears up such asymmetry effects. Our study makes instead use of CP tags in order to build new asymmetries where the different parameters can be separated out. For this separation, it is decisive to achieve a good time resolution in the measurement of entangled state decays. Nevertheless, even with no temporal information, as would be the case in a symmetric factory, it is still possible to extract some information on the symmetries of the system. We discuss both non-genuine and genuine observables, depending on whether absorptive parts can mimic or not asymmetry effects

  13. Partial mass-degeneracy and spontaneous CP violation in the lepton sector

    Inspired by the small squared-mass difference measured in solar neutrino oscillation experiments, we suggest that the partial mass-degenerate limit, in which masses of the first two generation fermions are degenerate, may be a good starting point for understanding the observed fermion mass spectra and mixing patterns. The limit indicates an O(2) symmetry acting on flavor space of the first two generations. We build a simple model for the lepton sector based on the $D_N$ group, which is a discrete subgroup of O(2), and show that the model can successfully reproduce the experimental data without tuning dimension couplings. We also show that the electron mass and $\\theta_{13}^{\\rm PMNS}$ are related with each other through CP violating phases.

    GLACIER (Giant Liquid Argon Charge Imaging ExpeRiment) is a large underground observatory for proton decay search, neutrino astrophysics and CP-violation studies in the lepton sector. Possible underground sites are studied within the FP7 LAGUNA project (Europe) and along the JPARC neutrino beam in collaboration with KEK (Japan). The concept is scalable to very large masses.

  16. Heinrich Wahl, a central figure in direct CP violation research at CERN, retires

    2003-01-01

    All the necessary ingredients were there - laughs, scientific debate and a pinch of emotion - to make the «Festkolloquium», held in honour of Heinrich Wahl, an unqualified success. One by one, his colleagues, friends and former students took their turn on the rostrum in CERN's main auditorium to reminisce over the career, scientific contributions and leadership of this highly-respected physicist. For, believe it or not, after 34 years at the forefront of the Laboratory's charge-parity violation experiments, Heinrich Wahl, is finally retiring from CERN. Heinrich Wahl during the Colloquium for his retirement.Heinrich Wahl came to CERN from his native Germany as a Fellow in 1969 and rapidly made a name for himself in the first CP violation experiments on neutral kaons, a field that would subsequently become his main area of interest. He then became involved in the CDHS (CERN Dortmund Heidelberg Saclay) experiment to study high-energy neutrino interactions, which began in 1976 under the leadership of Jack Stein...

  17. Direct CP Violation in Charmless Three-body Decays of $B$ Mesons

    2016-01-01

    Direct CP violation in charmless three-body hadronic decays of $B$ mesons is studied within the framework of a simple model based on the factorization approach. Three-body decays of heavy mesons receive both resonant and nonresonant contributions. Dominant nonresonant contributions to tree-dominated and penguin-dominated three-body decays arise from the $b\\to u$ tree transition and $b\\to s$ penguin transition, respectively. The former can be evaluated in the framework of heavy meson chiral perturbation theory with some modification, while the latter is governed by the matrix element of the scalar density $\\langle M_1M_2|\\bar q_1 q_2|0\\rangle$. Strong phases in this work reside in effective Wilson coefficients, propagators of resonances and the matrix element of scalar density. In order to accommodate the branching fraction and CP asymmetries observed in $B^-\\to K^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$, the matrix element $\\langle K\\pi|\\bar sq|0\\rangle$ should have an additional strong phase, which might arise from some sort of power c...

  18. Probing CP violation in $e^{+}e^{-}$ production of the Higgs boson and toponia

    Hagiwara, Kaoru; Yokoya, Hiroshi

    2016-01-01

    We study the CP violation in the Higgs boson and toponia production process at the ILC where the toponia are produced near the threshold. With the approximation that the production vertex of the Higgs boson and toponia is contact, and neglecting the P-wave toponia, we analytically calculated the density matrix for the production and decay of the toponia. Under these assumptions, the production spectrum of the toponia is solely determined by the spin quantum number, therefore the toponia can be either singlet or triplet. We find that the production rate of the singlet toponium is highly suppressed, and behaves just like the production of a P-wave toponia. In the case of the triplet toponium, three completely independent CP observables, namely azimuthal angles of lepton and anti-lepton in the toponium rest-frame as well as their sum, are predicted based on our analytical results, and checked by using the tree-level event generator. The non-trivial correlations come from the longitudinal-transverse interferences...

    We report the results of a search for T, CP and CPT violation in B0-B0bar mixing using an inclusive dilepton sample collected by the BaBar experiment at the PEP-II B Factory. Using a sample of 232 million BBbar pairs, with a simultaneous likelihood fit of the same-sign and opposite-sign dileptons, we measure the T and CP violation parameter |q/p|-1 = (-0.8 +/- 2.7(stat.) +/- 1.9(syst.))e-03, and the CPT and CP parameters Im(z) = (-13.9 +/- 7.3 (stat.) +/- 3.2(syst.))e-03 and DeltaGamma x Re(z) = (-7.1 +/- 3.9(stat.) +/- 2.0(syst.))e-03 ps^{-1}. The statistical correlation between the measurements of Im(z) and DeltaGamma x Re(z) is 76%.

    A search for time-integrated CP violation in the Cabibbo-suppressed decay $D^0\\to\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^0$ is performed using for the first time an unbinned model-independent technique known as the energy test. Using proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.0 fb$^{-1}$ collected by the LHCb detector at a centre-of-mass energy of $\\sqrt{s}$ = 8 TeV, the world's best sensitivity to CP violation in this decay is obtained. The data are found to be consistent with the hypothesis of CP symmetry with a $p$-value of (2.6$\\pm$ 0.5)$\\%$

  3. CP Violation and Beauty Decays - A Case Study of High Impact, High Sensitivity and Even High Precision Physics

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bigi, I. I.

    The narrative of these lectures contains three main threads: (i) CP violation despite having so far been observed only in the decays of neutral kaons has been recognized as a phenomenon of truly fundamental importance. The KM ansatz constitutes the minimal implementation of CP violation: without requiring unknown degrees of freedom it can reproduce the known CP phenomenology in a nontrivial way. (ii) The physics of beauty hadrons - in particular their weak decays - opens a novel window onto fundamental dynamics: they usher in a new quark family (presumably the last one); they allow us to determine fundamental quantities of the Standard Model like the b quark mass and the CKM parameters V(cb), V(ub), V(ts) and V(td); they exhibit speedy or even rapid B0 - ¯ B0 oscillations. (iii) Heavy Quark Expansions allow us to treat B decays with an accuracy that would not have been thought possible a mere decade ago. These three threads are joined together in the following manner: (a) Huge CP asymmetries are predicted in B decays, which represents a decisive test of the KM paradigm for CP violation. (b) Some of these predictions are made with high parametric reliability, which (c) can be translated into numerical precision through the judicious employment of novel theoretical technologies. (d) Beauty decays thus provide us with a rich and promising field to search for New Physics and even study some of its salient features. At the end of it there might quite possibly be a New Paradigm for High Energy Physics. There will be some other threads woven into this tapestry: electric dipole moments, and CP violation in other strange and in charm decays.
