SU(3) predictions for weak decays of doubly heavy baryons, including SU(3) breaking terms


Journal Article

We find expressions for the weak decay amplitudes of baryons containing two b quarks (or one b and one c quark—many relationships are the same) in terms of unknown reduced matrix elements. This project was originally motivated by the request of the Fermilab run II b Physics Workshop organizers for a guide to experimentalists in their search for as yet unobserved hadrons. We include an analysis of linear SU(3) breaking terms in addition to relationships generated by unbroken SU(3) symmetry, and relate these to expressions in terms of the complete set of possible reduced matrix elements. © 2003 The American Physical Society.
