Abstract

We develop a perturbative QCD factorization theorem which is compatible with effective field theory. The factorization involves three scales: an infrared cutoff of order [Formula presented] a hard scale of the order of the [Formula presented] meson mass, and an ultraviolet cutoff of the order of the [Formula presented] boson mass. Our approach is renormalization-group invariant and moderates the scale-dependent problem in effective field theory. Employing this formalism with nonfactorizable contributions included, we clarify the controversy over the BSW parameters [Formula presented] for charm and bottom decays.
