Accumulating evidence for nonstandard leptonic decays of Ds mesons

from arXiv:0803.0512v2 [hep-ph] The measured rate for D_s -> l nu decays, where l is a muon or tau, is larger than the standard model prediction, which relies on lattice QCD, at the 3.8 sigma level. We discuss how robust the theoretical prediction is, and we show that the discrepancy with experiment may be explained … Continue reading Accumulating evidence for nonstandard leptonic decays of Ds mesons

Supersymmetry for the masses

Introduction Since the times of the Ancient Greece, Natural Philosophers (they had several names, from time to time) have often asked themselves what the "world" is really made of. The first answer was "atoms" ("impossible to divide further"), and, as today, we still can't prove if it's true or not. Nowadays, this word has the … Continue reading Supersymmetry for the masses
