Rare hadronic decays of charged B mesons at LHCb

Abstract:

This thesis documents two searches for rare hadronic decays of B+ mesons with the LHCb experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. Both are performed using proton-proton collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.8 fb−1, collected at centre-of-mass energies of 7, 8 and 13 TeV during 2011–2016.

The first is a search for B+ → Ds+K+K decays. A significant signal is observed for the first time ...
