Abstract

Abstract It is shown that a significant lifetime difference between the B s physical states cannot be excluded from present measurements. The experimental study of the lifetime difference probes deeply into the b s bound state and restricts the | V td| matrix element strongly. It is pointed out that separate measurements of the time evolution of the CP-even and CP-odd final states provide a possible method for determining the widths of the long- and short-lived B s mesons.
