Abstract

We study the non-charmed strange decays of the B meson in the context of low-energy minimal N = 1 supergravity. We find that the inclusive channel b → s gluon is greatly enhanced with respect to the standard model prediction. Indeed, for gluino and squark masses of 60-80 GeV and a top mass between 50 and 80 GeV, a branching ratio as high as 10-30% can be reached. This opens a new window for the possibility of testing the presence of new physics in low-energy phenomenology. A comparative review of the standard model results is presented.
