Amplitude analysis of $B^0 \rightarrow \bar{D}^0 K^+ π^-$ decays


LHCb collaboration; Anderson, J; Bernet, R; Bowen, E; Bursche, A; Chiapolini, N; Chrzaszcz, M; Dey, B; Elsasser, C; Graverini, E; Mauri, A; Müller, K; Lionetto, F; Serra, N; Steinkamp, O; Storaci, B; Straumann, U; Tresch, M; Vollhardt, A; Weiden, A; et al (2015). Amplitude analysis of $B^0 \rightarrow \bar{D}^0 K^+ π^-$ decays. Physical Review D (Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology), 92:012012.

Abstract

The Dalitz plot distribution of $B^0 \rightarrow \bar{D}^0 K^+ \pi^-$ decays is studied using a data sample corresponding to $3.0\rm{fb}^{-1}$ of $pp$ collision data recorded by the LHCb experiment during 2011 and 2012. The data are described by an amplitude model that contains contributions from intermediate $K^*(892)^0$, $K^*(1410)^0$, $K^*_2(1430)^0$ and $D^*_2(2460)^-$ resonances. The model also contains components to describe broad structures, including the $K^*_0(1430)^0$ and $D^*_0(2400)^-$ resonances, in the $K\pi$ S-wave and the $D\pi$ S- and P-waves. The masses and widths of the $D^*_0(2400)^-$ and $D^*_2(2460)^-$ resonances are measured, as are the complex amplitudes and fit fractions for all components included in the amplitude model. The model obtained will be an integral part of a future determination of the angle $\gamma$ of the CKM quark mixing matrix using $B^0 \rightarrow D K^+ \pi^-$ decays.
