ABSTRACT We argue that the Bc exclusive nonleptonic decays are perturbatively calculable. Working in a perturbative QCD model of Brodsky et al., we pay attention to the estimate of the partial widths of the modes , , etc., which serve to identify Bc mesons and determine the Bc mass and life time. Our estimations are found to be lower than the other predictions. We note that the spectator ansatz might be misleading in dealing with Bc weak decays. So the results will be potentially important at LHC to measure the Bc meson and to test various models of weak decays of heavy mesons.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we calculate the branching ratio and direct CP asymmetry parameter of $B_c^{\pm}\to D^{0}K^{\pm}$ in the framework of perturbative QCD approach based on $k_T$ factorization. Besides the usual factorizable diagrams, both non-factorizable and annihilation type contributions are taken into account. We find that (a) the branching ratio is at the order of $10^{-5}$; (b) the tree annihilation diagrams and the penguin diagrams dominate the total contribution; and (c) the direct CP asymmetry is about 7%, which can be tested in the Large Hadron Collider beauty experiments (LHC-b) at CERN.

    ABSTRACT: We study the exclusive nonleptonic two-body Bc decays within factorization approximation, in the framework of the relativistic independent quark model based on a confining potential in the scalar-vector harmonic form. The relevant weak form factors and branching ratios for different decay modes (Bc→PP,PV,VP) are predicted in reasonable agreement with other quark model predictions. We find that the dominant contribution to the Bc-meson lifetime comes from the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Masakawa favored c̅ →s̅ , d̅ decay modes, and the most promising modes are found to be Bc-→B̅ s0π-, Bc-→B̅ s0ρ- and Bc-→B̅ s⋆0π- with predicted branching ratios of 12.01, 9.96, and 8.61%, respectively, which might be easily detected at the hadron collider in the near future.

    ABSTRACT: We study the exclusive nonleptonic B_{c}→VV decays, within the factorization approximation, in the framework of the relativistic independent quark model, based on a confining potential in the scalar-vector harmonic form. The weak form factors are extracted from the overlap integral of meson wave functions derived in the relativistic independent quark model. The predicted branching ratios for different B_{c}-meson decays are obtained in a wide range, from a tiny value of O(10^{-6}) for B_{c}→D^{*}D_{(s)}^{*} to a large value of 24.32% for B_{c}→B_{s}^{*}ρ^{-}, in general agreement with other dynamical-quark-model predictions. The decay modes B_{c}→B_{s}^{*}ρ^{-} and B_{c}→B^{*}ρ^{-} with high branching ratios of 24.32% and 1.73%, respectively, obtained in this model should be detectable at the LHC and Tevatron in the near future. The b→c, u induced decays are predicted predominantly in the longitudinal mode, whereas the c[over ¯]→s[over ¯], d[over ¯] induced decays are obtained in a slightly higher transverse mode. The CP-odd fractions (R_{⊥}) for different decay modes are predicted and those for color-favored B_{c}→D^{*}D^{*}, D^{*}D_{s}^{*} decays indicate significant CP violation in this sector.
