Perturbative QCD analysis of [Formula Presented] decays

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We study the first observed charmless (Formula presented) modes, the (Formula presented) decays, in perturbative QCD formalism. The obtained branching ratios (Formula presented) are larger than (Formula presented) from QCD factorization. The comparison of the predicted magnitudes and phases of the different helicity amplitudes, and branching ratios with experimental data can test the power counting rules, the evaluation of annihilation contributions, and the mechanism of dynamical penguin enhancement in perturbative QCD, respectively.
