∆Ms theory precision confronts flavour anomalies.

Di Luzio, Luca and Kirk, Matthew and Lenz, Alexander and Rauh, Thomas (2019) '∆Ms theory precision confronts flavour anomalies.', Journal of high energy physics., 2019 (12). p. 9.


Based on recent HQET sum rule and lattice calculations we present updated Standard Model predictions for the mass differences of neutral B mesons: ΔMSMs=(18.4+0.7−1.2)ps−1 and ΔMSMd=(0.533+0.022−0.036)ps−1 study their impact onnew physics models that address the present hints of anomalous data in b → sℓℓ transitions. We also examine future prospects of further reducing the theory uncertainties and discuss the implications of a 2025 scenario with ΔMSM2025s=(18.4±0.5) ps−1. In particular, the latter yields upper bounds MZ′ ≲ 9TeV and MS3≲30TeVfor the minimal Z′ and S3 lepto-quark explanations of the b → sℓℓ anomalies, respectively.
