Abstract

B s 0→D s - and B s 0→D s* - weak transition form factors are estimated for the whole physical region with a method based on an instantaneous approximated Mandelstam formulation of transition matrix elements and the instantaneous BetheSalpeter equation. We apply the estimated form factors to branching ratios, CP asymmetries and polarization fractions of non-leptonic decays within the factorization approximation. We study the non-factorizable effects and annihilation contributions with the perturbative QCD approach. The branching ratios of semi-leptonic B s 0→D s (*)l + l decays are also evaluated. We show that the calculated decay rates agree well with the available experimental data. The longitudinal polarization fractions of B s D s * V(A) decays are ∼0.8 when V(A) denotes a light meson and are ∼0.5 when V(A) denotes a D q (q = d, s) meson.
