Weak Decays of Heavy Quarks

  • David G. Hitlin
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 164)

Abstract

We now have a great deal of experimental information on the weak decays of heavy quarks, and a considerable body of calculations which serve to organize and explain the data. These lectures will treat the subject of weak decays of heavy quarks in some detail, summarizing the current experimental and theoretical situation and briefly looking at prospects for future progress in this area. As the literature in this area has now become quite vast, no attempt will be made to treat the subject historically.

Keywords

Heavy Quark Branching Ratio Weak Decay Hadronic Decay Dalitz Plot 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
