Properties of B Mesons - Results from Argus

  • Henning Schröder
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 44)


The study of B-mesons provides information on the fundamental parameters of the standard model, namely the masses of the b quark and the t quark, m b and m t , and two of the three angles, namely β and γ, which together with the phase δ′ describe the Kobayashi-Maskawa-matrix. These angles can in principle be determined by three precise measurements of
  • the b-lifetime which yields γ

  • the rate of bu transitions which yields β

  • B00 mixing which yields δ′.
