Abstract

We present measurements of the branching fractions, longitudinal polarization, and direct CP-violation asymmetries for the decays B+→ρ0K*+ and B+→f0(980)K*+ with a sample of (467±5)×106BB̅ pairs collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy e+e- collider at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. We observe B+→ρ0K*+ with a significance of 5.3σ and measure the branching fraction B(B+→ρ0K*+)=(4.6±1.0±0.4)×10-6, the longitudinal polarization fL=0.78±0.12±0.03, and the CP-violation asymmetry ACP=0.31±0.13±0.03. We observe B+→f0(980)K*+ and measure the branching fraction B(B+→f0(980)K*+)×B(f0(980)→π+π-)=(4.2±0.6±0.3)×10-6 and the CP-violation asymmetry ACP=-0.15±0.12±0.03. The first uncertainty quoted is statistical and the second is systematic.

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.
