Towards New Frontiers with $B\toπK$ Decays

Robert Fleischer, Ruben Jaarsma, K. Keri Vos

Published 2017-12-06Version 1

Exploring correlations between the CP asymmetries of $B^0_d\to\pi^0K_{\rm S}$ following from an isospin relation, we uncover new tensions with the Standard Model in data for neutral $B\to\pi K$ decays. Should this intriguing picture originate from New Physics, a modified electroweak penguin sector provides a key scenario. It includes models with extra $Z'$ bosons, which offer attractive ways to resolve anomalies in $B\to K^{(*)}\ell^+\ell^-$ measurements. We present a new strategy to reveal the underlying physics, apply it to current $B\to\pi K$ data, and discuss the excellent prospects for Belle II.
