Abstract

Abstract We compute the rates of two-body weak decays of charmed mesons, on the basis of a simple quark recombination scheme. The ratio of rates for different modes is determined directly in terms of the relative strength of the “20” and “84” SU(4) components of the effective weak lagrangian. Present data, in particular on D + → K 0π + , support the quantum prediction of QCD on the enhancement of the “20” component with respect to the “84”.
