Abstract

We study transitions between Υ states with the emission of charged pions using 604.6fb-1 of data collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e+e- collider. The measured product branching fraction is B(Υ(4S)→Υ(1S)π+π-)×B(Υ(1S)→μ+μ-)=(2. 11±0.30(stat)±0.14(sys))×10-6 and the partial decay width is Γ(Υ(4S)→Υ(1S)π+π-)=(1.75±0.25(stat)±0. 24(sys))keV.
