Abstract

A search for the non-resonant decays Bs0 → μ+ μ μ+ μ and B0 → μ+ μ μ+ μ is presented. The measurement is performed using the full Run 1 data set collected in proton-proton collisions by the LHCb experiment at the LHC. The data correspond to integrated luminosities of 1 and 2 fb−1 collected at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, respectively. No signal is observed and upper limits on the branching fractions of the non-resonant decays at 95% confidence level are determined to be

ℬ(Bs0 → μ+ μ μ+ μ) < 2.5×10−9,
ℬ(B0 → μ+ μ μ+ μ) < 6.9×10−10,
