Heavy-Quark Physics

  • Matthias Neubert
Chapter
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 629)

Abstract

These lectures provide a pedagogical introduction to the theory of non-leptonic heavy-meson decays recently proposed by Beneke, Buchalla, Sachrajda and myself, which provides a rigorous basis for factorization for a large class of non-leptonic two-body B-meson decays in the heavy-quark limit. Some phenomenological applications of this approach are briefly discussed.
