Abstract:

The unprecedented luminosities achieved by the SLAC and KEK B-factories provide fertile ground for searches for rare B meson decays. The large size of the current BaBar data set, corresponding to approximately 100 million Y(4s) to B Bbar events, has also permitted the use of novel methods to search for "difficult'' rare decay modes such as those possessing multiple unobserved neutrinos. The results of recent searches for several rare semileptonic B decay modes are presented, and the prospects for future discoveries are discussed.

Refreshments will be available in the lounge after the talk.
