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: We study the single and double lepton polarization asymmetries in B → K 1ℓ+ℓ− (ℓ = μ, τ ) decay by using most general non-standard local four-fermi interactions, where K 1 is the mixture of axial vector states K 1A and K 1B , which are the 3P 1 and 1P 1 states respectively. This study shows that both single and double lepton polarization asymmetries are influenced by new physics couplings. We have also seen the dependence of these asymmetries on mixing angle θ K between K 1A and K 1B flavor states. In addition to these, correlations between the lepton polarization asymmetries and branching ratio are also calculated. We have found that the observation of the above mentioned asymmetries at present and future colliders such as LHC and Super B factories will assist to dig out the status of physics beyond the SM.

    ABSTRACT: In this work, we study the exclusive channel of flavor changing neutral current transition, i.e., B→K*ℓ+ℓ- in the framework of a family of nonuniversal Z′ model. In this model, the Z′ boson couplings to the fermions could lead to flavor changing neutral current transition (in standard model, this transition is forbidden at tree level and occur via loop) at tree level. In addition, the off-diagonal elements of these effective chiral Z′ couplings can contain new weak phases that provide a new source of CP violation and, therefore, could explain the CP asymmetries in the current high energy colliders. In this context, we have studied the polarized and unpolarized CP violation asymmetries for said decay. These asymmetries are highly suppressed in the standard model but significantly enhanced in Z′ model. In addition to the CP violation asymmetries, the single lepton polarization asymmetries are also studied and found to be sensitive to the couplings of the Z′ boson. Finally, it is analyzed that all of these asymmetries, which will hopefully be tested at LHC, can serve to probe nonuniversal Z′ model; particularly, the accurate measurements of these asymmetries may play a crucial role in extracting the precise values of the coupling parameters of the Z′ boson.

    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.
