Inclusive B→ sg decay in QCD Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract 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/mb 2 correction to the parton model result constitutes about 4% in the inclusive decay rate.
