## Abstract

We determine the leading-order nonrelativistic quantum chromodynamics (NRQCD) matrix element 〈O1〉Υ and the ratio (q^{2})Υ, for Υ=Υ(nS) with n=1, 2, and 3 by comparing the measured values for Γ[Υ→e^{+}e^{-}] with the NRQCD factorization formula in which relativistic corrections are resummed to all orders in the heavy-quark velocity v. The values for 〈q^{2}〉Υ, which is the ratio of order-v^{2} matrix element to 〈O_{1}〉Υ, are new. They can be used for NRQCD predictions involving Υ(nS) and ηb(nS) with relativistic corrections. As an application, we predict the two-photon decay rates for the spin-singlet states: Γ[ηb(1S)→γγ]=0.512_{-0.094}^{+0.096} keV, Γ[ηb(2S)→γγ]=0.235_{-0.043}^{+0.043} keV, and ηb(3S)→γγ=0.170_{-0.031}^{+0.031} keV.
