LHCb Collaboration; Aaij, R; Adeva, B; Adinolfi, M; Bernet, R; Bowen, E; Bursche, A; Chiapolini, N; Chrzaszcz, M; Dey, B; Elsasser, C; Graverini, E; Lionetto, F; Lowdon, P; Mauri, A; Müller, K; Serra, N; Steinkamp, O; Storaci, B; Straumann, U; Tresch, M; Vollhardt, A; Weiden, A; et al (2015). Measurement of $CP$ violation in $B^0 \rightarrow J/\psi K^0_S$ decays. Physical Review Letters, 115:031601.

Abstract

Measurements are presented of the $CP$ violation observables $S$ and $C$ in the decays of $B^0$ and $\overline{B}{}^0$ mesons to the $J/\psi K^0_S$ final state. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of $3.0\,\text{fb}^{-1}$ collected with the LHCb experiment in proton-proton collisions at center-of-mass energies of $7$ and $8\,\text{TeV}$. The analysis of the time evolution of $41500$ $B^0$ and $\overline{B}{}^0$ decays yields $S = 0.731 \pm 0.035 \, \text{(stat)} \pm 0.020 \,\text{(syst)}$ and $C = -0.038 \pm 0.032 \, \text{(stat)} \pm 0.005\,\text{(syst)}$. In the Standard Model, $S$ equals $\sin(2\beta)$ to a good level of precision. The values are consistent with the current world averages and with the Standard Model expectations.

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.
