    • Abstract


      SU(3) flavor symmetry allows the decay constantsfD1 andfD2 as well asfB1 andfB1 to be equal. But due toSU(3) flavor symmetry breaking the ratiosfB1/fB2 andfD1/fD2 are deviated from unity. We have estimated these ratios in the heavy quark effective theory and obtainedfB1/fB2=0.93,fD1/fD2=0.94 and the double ratio (fB1/fB2)/(fD1/fD2)=0.99.
