ABSTRACT The implications of the family non-universal Z′ model in the B→K
−(ℓ=e ,μ ,τ) decays are explored, where the mass eigenstates K
1(1270, 1400) are the mixtures of 1P
1 and 3P
1 states with the mixing angle θ. In this work, considering the Z′ boson and setting the mixing angle θ=(−34±13)○, we analyze the branching ratio, the dilepton invariant mass spectrum, the normalized forward–backward asymmetry and lepton polarization asymmetries of each decay mode. We find that all observables of B→K

− are sensitive to the Z′ contribution. Moreover, the observables of B→K

− have a relatively strong θ-dependence; thus, the Z′ contribution will be buried by the uncertainty of the mixing angle θ. Furthermore, the zero crossing position in the FBA spectrum of B→K

− at low dilepton mass will move to the positive direction with Z′ contribution. For the tau modes, the effects of Z′ are not remarkable due to the small phase space. These results could be tested in the running LHC-b experiment and Super-B factory.

    ABSTRACT: Using newly available form factors obtained from light-cone QCD sum rules in full theory, we study the flavor-changing neutral current transition of Σb → Σμ+μ− decay in the family non-universal Z' model. In particular, we evaluate the differential branching ratio and forward–backward asymmetry, as well as some related asymmetry parameters and polarizations. We compare the obtained results with predictions of the standard model and discuss the sensitivity of the observables under consideration to the family non-universal Z' gauge boson. The order of the differential branching ratio shows that this decay mode can be checked at the LHC in the near future.

    ABSTRACT: Motivated by the latest improved measurements of B-meson decays, we make a comprehensive analysis of the impact of a family non-universal boson on mixing and two-body hadronic B-meson decays, all being characterized by the quark-level transition. Explicitly 22 decay modes and the related 52 observables are considered, and some interesting correlations between them are also carefully examined. Firstly, the allowed oases of coupling parameters and are extracted from mixing. Then, in the 'SM limit' (i.e., no new types of -induced four-quark operators arise compared to the SM case), we study the effects on , and decays. It is found that a new weak phase is crucial for resolving the observed ' CP puzzle' and the allowed cases of the other coupling parameters are also strongly restricted. Moreover, the effects on , and decays, being induced by the same quark-level transitions, are also investigated. In particular, it is found that the decay , once measured, would play a key role in revealing the observed ' CP puzzle' and probing possible new physics hints. Finally, to check the non-universality of couplings to light-quark pairs, we have studied the decays in detail and found that the left-handed coupling is different from the one, which is due to the large reported by the BaBar Collaboration.

    ABSTRACT: In this work we study the implication of the nonuniversal Z' model to the double lepton polarization asymmetries in the B→K*ℓ+ℓ-, (l=μ,τ) decay. To see the variation in the values of lepton polarization asymmetries from the standard model values, we have taken bounds of the UTfit collaboration, namely, S1 and S2 on the values of different parameters of the universal Z' model such as left-right couplings of the extra gauge boson with leptons and the new weak phase ϕsb. It is found that double lepton polarization asymmetries are sensitive to the coupling parameters of Z' boson with fermions. Therefore, the measurements of these lepton polarization asymmetries for the above-mentioned decay at current colliders can be helpful to clarify the status of the existence of the extra gauge boson, i.e., Z'.
