Charming loops in exclusive rare FCNC B-decays


Seminar “Hadron Physics”

Date and Time: Friday, 8 November 2019, at 11:00 AM

Venue: Blokhintsev Hall (4th floor), Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics

Seminar topic: “Charming loops in exclusive rare FCNC B-decays”

Speaker: Dmitri Melikhov (SINP, Moscow State University)


Rare B-decays induced by flavour-changing neutral currents (FCNC) is one of the promising candidates for probing physics beyond the Standard model. However, for identifying potential new physics from the data, reliable control over QCD contributions is necessary. I focus on one of such QCD contributions – the charming loops that provide difficulties in disentangling new physics and discuss the possibility to gain control over them.
