Abstract:

Using a full BABAR data sample of 426 $fb^{-1}$, we present improved measurements of the ratio ${\cal{R}}(D^{(*)}) = {\cal{B}} (\bar{B} \to D^{(*)}\tau^{-}\bar{\nu}_{\tau})/$ ${\cal{B}} (\bar{B} \to D^{(*)}\ell_{\ell}^{-}\bar{\nu}_{\ell})$, where $\ell$ is either electron or muon. We measure ${\cal{R}}(D) = 0.440 \pm 0.058 \pm 0.042$ and ${\cal{R}}(D^*) = 0.332 \pm 0.024 \pm 0.018$. These ratios exceed the Standard Model predictions by $2.0\sigma$ and $2.7\sigma$, respectively. The results disagree with the Standard Model predictions at the level of $3.4\sigma$. The ratios are sensitive to new physics contributions in the form of a charged Higgs boson. However, the access cannot be explained by a charged Higgs boson in the type II two-Higgs-doublet model.
