Improved perturbative QCD formalism for $B_c$ meson decays

31 Oct 2018  ·  Liu Xin, Li Hsiang-nan, Xiao Zhen-Jun ·

We derive the $k_T$ resummation for doubly heavy-flavored $B_c$ meson decays by including the charm quark mass effect into the known formula for a heavy-light system. The resultant Sudakov factor is employed in the perutrbative QCD study of the "golden channel" $B_c^+ \to J/\psi \pi^+$... With a reasonable model for the $B_c$ meson distribution amplitude, which maintains approximate on-shell conditions of both the partonic bottom and charm quarks, it is observed that the imaginary piece of the $B_c \to J/\psi$ transition form factor appears to be power suppressed, and the $B_c^+ \to J/\psi \pi^+$ branching ratio is not lower than $10^{-3}$. The above improved perutrbative QCD formalism is applicable to $B_c$ meson decays to other charmonia and charmed mesons. read more
