Elementary Particle Physics Seminar

Wednesday, February 28th 2018
Speaker:  Hajime Muramatsu, University of Minnesota
Subject: Leptonic Decays of Charmed Mesons at BESIII

BESIII now holds the world's largest e+e- annihilation samples taken at Ecm = 3.773 and 4.178 GeV which produce copious charmed mesons, D0, D+, and Ds+. In this talk, I report our on-going studies on D+ -> l nu and Ds -> l nu (l = mu and tau). These allow us to determine the elements of the CKM matrix within the standard model, to test the unitarity of the second rows of the CKM matrix, probe lepton universality, as well as to calibrate the LQCD calculations of the decay constants, fD(s)+.
