Measuring the Chiralities of Weak b → c(u) Transitions in Exclusive B Meson Decays

  • Jürgen G. Körner
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 44)


I discuss possibilities to measure the chirality of the weak b → c(u) transitions in exclusive bottom meson decays in (i) the exclusive semileptonic decay process B → D* + 1 + ν1 and (ii) in the exclusive nonleptonic decays of bottom mesons to baryon-antibaryon pairs.
