EVIDENCE FOR SU(3) BREAKING IN CABIBBO-TYPE FITS OF SEMI-LEPTONIC HYPERON DECAY
Journal or Book Title
PHYSICAL REVIEW D
We analyze recent precision experiments involving semileptonic hyperon decay and demonstrate that there exists definite evidence for SU(3) breaking. The type of breaking observed is a difference in the D/(F+D) ratios in the ΔS=0 and ΔS=1 sectors, which is at variance with the simplest quark-model expectations. We comment on the relevance of symmetry breaking to the determination of weak mixing angles.
