Measurement of CP violation in the phase space of $B^{\pm} \rightarrow K^{+} K^{-} \pi^{\pm}$ and $B^{\pm} \rightarrow \pi^{+} \pi^{-} \pi^{\pm}$ decays


LHCb Collaboration; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkamp, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A; et al (2014). Measurement of CP violation in the phase space of $B^{\pm} \rightarrow K^{+} K^{-} \pi^{\pm}$ and $B^{\pm} \rightarrow \pi^{+} \pi^{-} \pi^{\pm}$ decays. Physical Review Letters, 112(1):011801.

Abstract

The charmless decays $B^{\pm} \rightarrow K^{+}K^{-}\pi^{\pm}$ and $B^{\pm} \rightarrow \pi^{+}\pi^{-}\pi^{\pm}$ are reconstructed in a data set, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb$^{-1}$ of pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, collected by LHCb in 2011. The inclusive charge asymmetries of these modes are measured to be $A_{CP}(B^{\pm} \rightarrow K^{+}K^{-}\pi^{\pm}) =-0.141 \pm 0.040 (stat) \pm 0.018 (syst) \pm 0.007 (J/\psi K^{\pm})$ and $A_{CP}(B^{\pm} \rightarrow \pi^{+}\pi^{-}\pi^{\pm}) = 0.117 \pm 0.021 (stat) \pm 0.009 (syst) \pm 0.007 (J/\psi K^{\pm})$, where the third uncertainty is due to the CP asymmetry of the $B^{\pm} \rightarrow J/\psi K^{\pm}$ reference mode. In addition to the inclusive CP asymmetries, larger asymmetries are observed in localized regions of phase space.

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.
