Search for the rare decays B+→μ+μ-K+, B0→μ+μ- K*(892)0, and Bs0→μ+μ- at CDF

Abstract:

We search for b→sμ+μ- transitions in B meson (B+, B0, or Bs0) decays with 924pb-1 of pp̄ collisions at s=1.96TeV collected with the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. We find excesses with significances of 4.5, 2.9, and 2.4 standard deviations in the B+→μ+μ-K+, B0→μ+μ-K*(892)0, and Bs0→μ+μ- decay modes, respectively. Using B→J/ψh (h=K+, K*(892)0,) decays as normalization channels, we report branching fractions for the previously observed B+ and B0 decays, B(B+→μ+μ-K+)=(0.59±0.15±0. 04)...
