Search for the Z1(4050)+ and Z2(4250)+ states in Bˉ0→χc1K−π+ and B+→χc1K0Sπ+


BABAR Collaboration; Snoek, H (2012). Search for the Z1(4050)+ and Z2(4250)+ states in Bˉ0→χc1K−π+ and B+→χc1K0Sπ+. Physical Review D (Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology), 85(5):052003.

Abstract

We search for the Z1(4050)+ and Z2(4250)+ states, reported by the Belle Collaboration, decaying to χc1π+ in the decays B̅ 0→χc1K-π+ and B+→χc1KS0π+ where χc1→J/ψγ. The data were collected with the BABAR detector at the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric-energy e+e- collider operating at center-of-mass energy 10.58 GeV, and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 429  fb-1. In this analysis, we model the background-subtracted, efficiency-corrected χc1π+ mass distribution using the Kπ mass distribution and the corresponding normalized Kπ Legendre-polynomial moments, and then test the need for the inclusion of resonant structures in the description of the χc1π+ mass distribution. No evidence is found for the Z1(4050)+ and Z2(4250)+ resonances, and 90% confidence level upper limits on the branching fractions are reported for the corresponding B-meson decay modes.

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.
