## Abstract

The CP-violating charge asymmetry in B±→ϕK±B±→ϕK± decays is measured in a sample of pp collisions at 7 TeV centre-of-mass energy, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb−1 collected by the LHCb experiment. The result is ACP(B±→ϕK±)=0.022±0.021±0.009ACP(B±→ϕK±)=0.022±0.021±0.009, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic. In addition, a search for the B±→ϕπ±B±→ϕπ± decay mode is performed, using the B±→ϕK±B±→ϕK± decay rate for normalization. An upper limit on the branching fraction B(B±→ϕπ±)<1.5×10−7B(B±→ϕπ±)<1.5×10−7 is set at 90% confidence level.

## 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.
