Model-independent measurement of the CKM angle $\gamma$ using $B^0 \to D K^{\ast 0}$ decays with $D \to K_{S}^{0} \pi^{+} \pi^{-}$ and $K_{S}^{0} K^{+} K^{-}$


LHCb Collaboration; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkampf, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A; et al (2016). Model-independent measurement of the CKM angle $\gamma$ using $B^0 \to D K^{\ast 0}$ decays with $D \to K_{S}^{0} \pi^{+} \pi^{-}$ and $K_{S}^{0} K^{+} K^{-}$. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2016:131.

Abstract

A binned Dalitz plot analysis of the decays $B^0 \to D K^{\ast 0}$, with $D
\to K_{S}^{0} \pi^{+} \pi^{-}$ and $K_{S}^{0} K^{+} K^{-}$, is performed to
measure the observables $x_\pm$ and $y_\pm$, which are related to the CKM angle $\gamma$ and the hadronic parameters of the decays. The $D$ decay strong phase variation over the Dalitz plot is taken from measurements performed at the CLEO-c experiment, making the analysis independent of the $D$ decay model. With a sample of proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3.0\,\rm{fb}^{-1}$, collected by the LHCb experiment, the values of the $CP$ violation parameters are found to be $x_+ = 0.05 \pm 0.35 \pm 0.02$, $x_-=-0.31\pm 0.20 \pm 0.04$, $y_+=-0.81\pm 0.28\pm 0.06$ and $y_-=0.31\pm 0.21 \pm 0.05$, where the first uncertainties are statistical and the second systematic. These observables correspond to values $\gamma$ = $(71 \pm 20)^\circ$, $r_{B^0} = 0.56\pm 0.17$ and $\delta_{B^0} = (204\,^{+21}_{-20})^\circ$. The parameters $r_{B^0}$ and $\delta_{B^0}$ are the magnitude ratio and strong phase difference between the suppressed and favoured $B^0$ decay amplitudes, and have been measured in a region of $\pm 50$ MeV/$c^2$ around the $K^{\ast}(892)^{0}$ mass and with the magnitude of the cosine of the $K^{\ast}(892)^{0}$ helicity angle larger than 0.4.

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.
