### Search for rare $B^0_{(s)}\rightarrow μ^+ μ^- μ^+ μ^-$ decays

Abstract:

\noindent A search for the decays $B^0_{s}\rightarrow \mu^+ \mu^- \mu^+ \mu^-$ and $B^0 \rightarrow \mu^+ \mu^- \mu^+ \mu^-$ is performed using data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0\ensuremath{\{\,fb}^{-1}}\xspace, collected with the LHCb detector in 2011. The number of candidates observed is consistent with the expected background and, assuming phase-space models of the decays, limits on the branching fractions are set: \{\${\ensuremath{\cal B}\xspace}(B^0_{s}\rightarrow \mu^...
