Effects of Littlest Higgs model in rare D meson decays

Abstract

A tree-level flavor changing neutral current in the up-like quark sector appears in one of the variations of the Littlest Higgs model. We investigate the effects of this coupling in the D+ -> pi+ l+ l- and D0 -> rho0 l+ l- decays, which are the most appropriate candidates for the experimental studies. However, the effects are found to be too small to be observed in the current and the foreseen experimental facilities. These decays are still dominated by the standard model long-distance contributions, which are reevaluated based on the new experimental input.Comment: 13 pages, 3 figures; new constraint on scale f taken into account and effects on charm meson decays recalculate
