Inclusive Search for b --> s gluon

Abstract

We describe an inclusive search for flavor changing neutral current decays of the type b-->s gluon in the SLD experiment. Models of b-->s gluon indicate that the production of high momentum kaons is enhanced over background from standard B decays. If the branching ratio for b-->s gluon is 10%, then such an enhancement should have a good signal to background ratio. The analysis makes use of the particle identification and high precision vertexing capabilities of SLD to search for such an enhancement. The data sample consists of 300K hadronic Z0 decays collected between 1993 and 1997.
