Search for TeV scale physics in heavy flavor decays

Abstract

The subject of heavy flavor decays as probes for physics at and beyond the TeV scale is covered from the experimental perspective. Emphasis is placed on the more traditional beyond the standard model topics that have potential for impact in the early LHC era, and that are in anticipation of the B factory upgrade(s). The aim is to explain the physics, without getting too involved in the details, whether experimental or theoretical, to give the interested non-expert a perspective on the flavor/TeV link. We cover the forefront topics of CP violation in bs transitions involving penguin and box diagrams, and probes of charged Higgs, right-handed and scalar interactions. We touch briefly on ϒ decay, D 0 mixing, rare K decays, and lepton flavor violating probes in τ decay. Our own phenomenological work is often used for illustration.
