\(H^+\) Probes: \(b\to s\gamma\) and \(B\to\tau\nu\)

Part of the Springer Tracts in Modern Physics book series (STMP, volume 233)

When the observation of \(b\to s\gamma\) was first announced by CLEO [1] in 1994 with 2 fb\(^{-1}\) data on the \(\varUpsilon(4S)\), it immediately became one of the most powerful constraints on many kinds of New Physics that enter the loop. In this chapter, we illustrate by the stringent bound it provides on the charged Higgs boson \(H^+\) that automatically exists in minimal SUSY. A second probe of the \(H^+\) boson is surprisingly a tree-level effect in \(B^+\to \tau^+\nu\), which became relevant only recently at the B factories.
