ABSTRACT We present an analysis on the exclusive rare radiative decay modes Σb→Σγ and Ξb→Ξγ. The transition form factors which parametrize these processes are calculated using QCD light-cone sum rules. The decay widths we predict are Γ(Σb→Σγ)=(7.21±0.04)×10-18 GeV and Γ(Ξb→Ξγ)=(1.34±0.07)×10-16 GeV. The branching ratio of Ξb→Ξγ is predicted to be Br(Ξb→Ξγ)= (3.03±0.10)×10-4.

    ABSTRACT: We present a systematic discussion of Λb→Λ transition form factors in the framework of soft-collinear effective theory (SCET). The universal soft form factor, which enters the symmetry relations in the limit of large recoil energy, is calculated from a sum-rule analysis of a suitable SCET correlation function. The same method is applied to derive the leading corrections from hard-collinear gluon exchange at first order in the strong coupling constant. We present numerical estimates for form factors and form-factor ratios and their impact on decay observables in Λb→Λμ+μ- decays.

    ABSTRACT: The Light-cone distribution amplitudes (LCDAs) of the $\Sigma^\pm$ baryons up to twist six are investigated on the basis of QCD conformal partial wave expansion approach. The calculations are carried out to the next-to-leading order of conformal spin accuracy. The nonperturbative parameters relevant to the LCDAs are determined in the framework of the QCD sum rule method. The explicit expressions of the LCDAs are given as the main results.

    ABSTRACT: The improved light-cone distribution amplitudes (LCDAs) of the $\Lambda$ baryon are examined on the basis of the QCD conformal partial wave expansion approach. The calculations are carried out to the next-to-leading order of conformal spin accuracy with consideration of twist $6$. The next leading order conformal expansion coefficients are related to the nonperturbative parameters defined by the local three quark operator matrix elements with different Lorentz structures with a covariant derivative. The nonperturbative parameters are determined with the QCD sum rule method. The explicit expressions of the LCDAs are provided as the main results.
