Nonleptonic charmless decays of Bc→TP,TV in the perturbative QCD approach

Nonleptonic charmless decays of Bc→TP,TV in the perturbative QCD approach Two-body charmless hadronic Bc decays involving a light 1P32-tensor (T) meson are investigated for the first time within the framework of perturbative QCD (pQCD) at leading order, in which the other meson is the lightest pseudoscalar (P) or vector (V) state.
