Description

Rare lepton decays of the B(s), D and K mesons and lepton flavor violating decays are sensitive probes of New Physics (NP). In particular, the search for the decays B(s)->μ+μ- provides information on the presence of new (pseudo-)scalar particles, while the angular analysis of decays such as B->K*μ+μ- provides information on possible new vector-axial contributions. The isospin asymmetry of B->K(*)μ+μ- events adds useful information on the structure of NP scenarios and other b->sμ+μ- transitions provide additional information. Similarly, exclusive radiative decays such as Bs->φγ provide valuable information of NP scenarios through the measurement of the photon polarization.
