    Search for weakly decaying b-flavored pentaquarks


    Adinolfi, M, Buchanan, E, Chapman, M, Dalseno, J, Harnew, S, Kariuki, J, Maddrell-Mander, S, Naik, P, Petridis, K, Pomery, G, Price, E, Prouve, C, Rademacker, J, Richards, S, Saunders, D, Skidmore, N, Velthuis, J, Aaij, R & , 2018, ‘Search for weakly decaying b-flavored pentaquarks’. Physical Review D, vol 97.


    Investigations of the existence of pentaquark states containing a single b (anti)quark decaying weakly into four specific final states J/ψK+π−p, J/ψK−π−p, J/ψK−π+p, and J/ψϕ(1020)p are reported. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 3.0  fb−1 in 7 and 8 TeV pp
    collisions acquired with the LHCb detector. Signals are not observed
    and upper limits are set on the product of the production cross section
    times branching fraction with respect to that of the Λ0b.
