## Abstract

Decays of the form $B^{0}_{(s)}\rightarrow J/\psi K_{{\rm S}}^{0} h^+ h^{\left(\prime\right) -}$ ($h^{(\prime)} = K, \pi$) are searched for in proton-proton collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $1.0 \, {\rm fb}^{-1}$ recorded with the LHCb detector. The first observation of the $B^{0}_{s}\rightarrow J/\psi K_{{\rm S}}^{0} K^{\pm} \pi^{\mp}$ decay is reported, with significance in excess of 10 standard deviations. The $B^{0}\rightarrow J/\psi K_{{\rm S}}^{0} K^{+} K^{-}$ decay is also observed for the first time. The branching fraction of $B^{0}\rightarrow J/\psi K_{{\rm S}}^{0} \pi^{+} \pi^{-}$ is determined, to significantly better precision than previous measurements, using $B^0 \rightarrow J/\psi K_{{\rm S}}^{0}$ as a normalisation channel. Branching fractions and upper limits of the other $B^{0}_{(s)}\rightarrow J/\psi K_{{\rm S}}^{0} h^+ h^{\left(\prime\right) -}$ modes are determined relative to that of the $B^{0}\rightarrow J/\psi K_{{\rm S}}^{0} \pi^{+} \pi^{-}$ decay.

## TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
