B Physics Beyond the Standard Model

Abstract

The ability of present and future experiments to test the Standard Model in the $B$ meson sector is described. We examine the loop effects of new interactions in flavor changing neutral current $B$ decays and in $Z\to b\bar b$, concentrating on supersymmetry and the left-right symmetric model as specific examples of new physics scenarios. The procedure for performing a global fit to the Wilson coefficients which describe $b\to s$ transitions is outlined, and the results of such a fit from Monte Carlo generated data is compared to the predictions of our two sample new physics scenarios. A fit to the $Zb\bar b$ couplings from present data is also given.

Notes

The PDF version of this document was distilled from a PostScript file most likely created from LaTeX source which used Type 3 fonts. The resultant PDF may be unreadable on the screen at the default viewing magnification (fonts will appear bitmapped, jagged), though the type will be legible at higher magnifications.

Despite the cosmetic problems resulting from the use Type 3 fonts in the original source file, such PDF files print without problems; likewise, the onscreen text is searchable and selectable.
