Inclusive and exclusive $b\to s/dγ$Oct 03 2008Oct 09 2008In this article, I review the recent results for inclusive and exclusive measurements for $b\to s\gamma$ and $b\to d\gamma$ decays from $B$ factories Belle and Babar. I describe the measurement of branching fraction and direct CP violating asymmetry for ... More
Nonperturbative Renormalization Group Function for Quantum Hall Plateau Transitions Imposed by Global SymmetriesOct 26 1998As a unified theory of integer and fractional quantum Hall plateau transitions, a nonperturbative theory of the two-parameter scaling renormalization group function is presented. By imposing global symmetries known as ``the law of corresponding states'', ... More
Dyonic BIon black hole in string inspired modelJan 22 2001Jul 07 2001We construct static and spherically symmetric particle-like and black hole solutions with magnetic and/or electric charge in the Einstein-Born-Infeld-dilaton-axion system, which is a generalization of the Einstein-Maxwell-dilaton-axion (EMDA) system and ...
