Inclusive B{r_arrow}sg decay in QCD Academic Article uri icon


  • The inclusive nonleptonic transition rate of the B meson in a gluonic penguin channel is calculated in QCD beyond the perturbation theory using the heavy quark mass expansion. We find that a leading power 1/m{sub b}{sup 2} correction to the parton model result constitutes about 4{percent} in the inclusive decay rate. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
