Flavor SU(3) predictions for charmed baryon and B-meson decays


Savage, Martin J. (1990) Flavor SU(3) predictions for charmed baryon and B-meson decays. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/xg6c-7v36.


The predictions of the SU(3) flavor symmetry of the strong interactions for the weak decay of charmed baryons and B-mesons are detailed. It is hoped that comparison between these predictions and experiment will shed some light on the underlying dynamics involved in these weak decays. Although only a few decay modes of the charmed baryons and B-mesons have been studied experimentally it is hoped that the next generation of B-factories and even Z-decays at LEP will provide enough events to test these predictions.
