Abstract
A search is presented for hidden-sector bosons, χ, produced in the decay B^{0}→K^{*}(892)^{0}χ, with K^{*}(892)^{0}→K^{+}π^{-} and χ→μ^{+}μ^{-}. The search is performed using pp-collision data corresponding to 3.0  fb^{-1} collected with the LHCb detector. No significant signal is observed in the accessible mass range 214≤m(χ)≤4350  MeV, and upper limits are placed on the branching fraction product B(B^{0}→K^{*}(892)^{0}χ)×B(χ→μ^{+}μ^{-}) as a function of the mass and lifetime of the χ boson. These limits are of the order of 10^{-9} for χ lifetimes less than 100 ps over most of the m(χ) range, and place the most stringent constraints to date on many theories that predict the existence of additional low-mass bosons.
