Can hints of new flavor structures form top quarks and B mesons be related?
Time: 2:30 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin
Speaker: John Ng, TRIUMF
Abstract: Recent measurements of front-back asymmetry in t-quark productions at the Tevatron hint at new flavor structure beyond the Standard Model. There is also a tension in the determination of |V_ub| from inclusive and exclusive semileptonic B-meson decays and B--> au u. We examine whether the models proposed to explain the first anomaly can or cannot alleviate the latter tension.
