LHCb Results on Semileptonic B/B$_s$/$Λ_b$ Decays  [PDF]
Concezio Bozzi
Physics , 2013,
Abstract: Studies of semileptonic decays of b hadrons with the LHCb experiment are reported. In particular, measurements of the b hadron production fractions at the LHC and Bs semileptonic decays in P-wave charmed mesons are presented. An outlook of the LHCb potential in measuring the CKM matrix elements Vub and Vcb, as well as decays involving taus, is given.
Measurement of {\textit CP} observables in semileptonic decays at LHCb  [PDF]
Lucia Grillo
Physics , 2014,
Abstract: LHCb has recorded large samples of semileptonic {\textit B} decays. These provide the possibility to study {\textit CP} violation effects in the $B^{0}_s$ and $B^{0}$ systems. Decay-time-integrated or decay-time-dependent asymmetries between charge conjugated final states probe {\textit CP} violation in $B^{0}_{(s)}$ mixing through the measurement of the parameter $a_{\textrm sl}. These measurements rely on data-driven techniques to control possible detection asymmetries.
Prospects for time-dependent asymmetries at LHCb  [PDF]
Frédéric Dupertuis,for the LHCb Collaboration
Physics , 2013,
Abstract: LHCb is already providing leading measurements of time-dependent CP asymmetries with 1 fb$^{-1}$ of data. With the LHCb detector, and further one with the LHCb upgrade, very high-precision time-dependent CP measurements are expected to stringently test the CKM paradigm and to the search for possible small NP effects. A review of the current precision and the prospects for these time-dependent quantities with the LHCb and LHCb upgraded detectors are summarised in this paper.
LHCb Semileptonic Asymmetry  [PDF]
Mika Vesterinen,on behalf of the LHCb Collaboration
Physics , 2013,
Abstract: A recent LHCb measurement of the CP violating flavour specific asymmetry in $B_s^0$ decays, \asls, is presented. This measurement is based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1 fb$^{-1}$ of $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ $=$ 7 TeV, collected during the 2011 run of the LHC. The result is $\asls = (-0.24 \pm 0.54_{\rm stat} \pm 0.33_{\rm syst})\times 10^{-2}$, which is the most precise measurement of this quantity to date and agrees with the Standard Model prediction.}
Semileptonic $B_s$ decay measurements at LHCb  [PDF]
Phillip Urquijo
Physics , 2011,
Abstract: I discuss the first semileptonic $B_s$ decay measurements performed at LHCb, and the prospects for precise studies of $B_s$ semileptonic decay properties. The analyses covered here are based on data collected with the LHCb detector in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. In particular the semileptonic decays $\Bs\to D_s^+ X \munu$ and $\Bs\to D^0K^+ X \munu$ are studied. Two structures are observed in the $D^0K^+$ mass spectrum at masses consistent with the known $D_{s1}(2536)^+$ and $D^*_{s2}(2573)^{+}$ mesons. The measured branching fractions relative to the total $\Bs$ semileptonic rate are ${{\cal{B}}(\Bs\to D_{s2}^{*+} X \munu)}/{{\cal{B}}(\Bs\to X \munu)}= (3.3\pm 1.0\pm 0.4)%$, and ${{\cal{B}}(\Bs\to D_{s1}^+ X \munu)}/{{\cal{B}}(\Bs\to X \munu)}= (5.4\pm 1.2({\rm stat})\pm 0.5({\rm sys}))%$. This is the first observation of the $D_{s2}^{*+}$ state in $\Bs$ decays.
New results on semileptonic b decays from LHCb  [PDF]
Marco Fiore
Physics , 2015,
Abstract: We report new measurements, based on the Run I dataset collected by the LHCb experiment, of the B0 mixing frequency Dm_d and the CKM matrix element |V_ub| using semileptonic b decays. The former is the most precise measurement ever performed; the latter represents the first determination of |V_ub| using a baryonic decay, and adds an important constraint on a possible explanation for the discrepancy between exclusive and inclusive determinations of this observable.
Charge Asymmetries in Semileptonic B Decays  [PDF]
Iain A Bertram
Statistics , 2013,
Abstract: I present measurements made by the D0 collaboration of the time-integrated flavor-specific semileptonic charge asymmetry in the decays of the Bs and Bd mesons that have undergone flavor mixing, asls and asld, using 10.4 fb^-1 of proton-antiproton collisions collected by the D0 detector during Run II at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. The results are asls = [-1.12 \pm 0.74 (stat) \pm 0.17 (syst) ]% and asld = [0.68 \pm 0.45 (stat.) \pm 0.14 (syst.)]% which are the two most precise published results and are in agreement with standard model predictions. These results are combined with the like-sign dimuon charge asymmetry, aslb, and recent preliminary results from the LHCb and BaBar experiments to obtain new world averages.
Measuring the angle $γ$ from penguin decays at LHCb  [PDF]
Angelo Carbone
Physics , 2011,
Abstract: In this paper we present first LHCb results on charmless charged two- and three-body $B$ meson decays. In particular, using the first picobarn of integrated luminosity, LHCb observed the $B^{0}\rightarrow K^{+}\pi^{-}$ and $B^{+}\rightarrow K^{+}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ decays. Such decays provide an interesting way to determine the angle $\gamma$ of the Unitary Triangle, thanks to the possible presence of New Physics in the penguin loops.
B-Hadron Lifetimes, Width Differences and Semileptonic CP-Asymmetries
Tarantino, Cecilia
High Energy Physics - Phenomenology , 2007,
Abstract: B-hadron physics plays a fundamental role to test and improve our understanding of flavor dynamics within and beyond the Standard Model. Of particular phenomenological interest are beauty hadron lifetime ratios and, width differences and semileptonic CP-asymmetries in B_d and B_s systems. We discuss their theoretical predictions which, in the last years, have been improved thanks to accurate lattice calculations of operator matrix elements and perturbative computations of Wilson coefficients.
Inclusive CP Asymmetries in Semileptonic Decays of B Mesons  [PDF]
Hitoshi Yamamoto
Physics , 1997, DOI: 10.1016/S0920-5632(97)01008-6
Abstract: We estimate the sensitivity of single lepton CP violation measurements with respect to that of traditional di-lepton measurements. We find that the sensitivity of the single lepton method is better than that of the di-lepton method. The achievable sensitivity with the currently available data is already in the range relevant to standard model predictions. We also give general expressions for inclusive decay time distributions on $\Upsilon 4S$ where the other $B$ is not measured, which will be used to obtain time dependent asymmetries. The expression is of general use whenever one deals with inclusive time-dependent as well as time-integrated measurements in $\Upsilon(4S)\to B^0\bar B^0$ where the final state of the other $B$ is not reconstructed or when only the time difference is measured.
