Description

We use the light front wavefunction for meson bound state obtained from holographic anti–de Sitter/chromodynamics to calculate the distribution amplitudes (DAs) for $\rho$ and $K^*$ vector mesons. Consequently, these DAs are utilized to compute the form factors for $B\to\rho ,K^*$ transition via light cone sum rules. Our predictions for semileptonic and rare B decays are compared with experimental measurements.
