Analysis of the resonant components in B0->J/ψpi+pi-


LHCb Collaboration; et al; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkamp, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A (2013). Analysis of the resonant components in B0->J/ψpi+pi-. Physical Review D (Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology), 87(5):052001.

Abstract

Interpretation of CP violation measurements using charmonium decays, in both the B¯¯¯0 and B¯¯¯0s systems, can be subject to changes due to “penguin” type diagrams. These effects can be investigated using measurements of the Cabibbo-suppressed B¯¯¯0→J/ψπ+π− decays. The final state composition of this channel is investigated using a 1.0  fb−1 sample of data produced in 7 TeV pp collisions at the LHC and collected by the LHCb experiment. A modified Dalitz-plot analysis is performed using both the invariant mass spectra and the decay angular distributions. An improved measurement of the B¯¯¯0→J/ψπ+π− branching fraction of (3.97±0.09±0.11±0.16)×10−5 is reported where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic, and the third is due to the uncertainty of the branching fraction of the decay B−→J/ψK− used as a normalization channel. Significant production of f0(500) and ρ(770) resonances is found in the substructure of the J/ψπ+π− final state, and this indicates that they are viable final states for CP violation studies. In contrast evidence for the f0(980) resonance is not found. This allows us to establish the first upper limit on the branching fraction product B(B¯¯¯0→J/ψf0(980))×B(f0(980)→π+π−)<1.1×10−6, leading to an upper limit on the absolute value of the mixing angle of the f0(980) with the f0(500) of less than 31°, both 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.
