Measurement of the CKM angle $\gamma$ using $B^0 \rightarrow D K^{*0}$ with $D \rightarrow K^0_S \pi^+ \pi^-$ decays


LHCb Collaboration; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkampf, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A; et al (2016). Measurement of the CKM angle $\gamma$ using $B^0 \rightarrow D K^{*0}$ with $D \rightarrow K^0_S \pi^+ \pi^-$ decays. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2016(8):137.

Abstract

A model-dependent amplitude analysis of the decay $B^0\rightarrow D(K^0_S\pi^+\pi^-) K^{*0}$ is performed using proton-proton collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0fb$^{-1}$, recorded at $\sqrt{s}=7$ and $8 TeV$ by the LHCb experiment. The CP violation observables $x_{\pm}$ and $y_{\pm}$, sensitive to the CKM angle $\gamma$, are measured to be \begin{eqnarray*} x_- = -0.15 \pm 0.14 \pm 0.03 \pm 0.01, y_- = 0.25 \pm 0.15 \pm 0.06 \pm 0.01, x_+ = 0.05 \pm 0.24 \pm 0.04 \pm 0.01, y_+ = -0.65^{+0.24}_{-0.23} \pm 0.08 \pm 0.01, \end{eqnarray*} where the first uncertainties are statistical, the second systematic and the third arise from the uncertainty on the $D\rightarrow K^0_S \pi^+\pi^-$ amplitude model. These are the most precise measurements of these observables. They correspond to $\gamma=(80^{+21}_{-22})^{\circ}$ and $r_{B^0}=0.39\pm0.13$, where $r_{B^0}$ is the magnitude of the ratio of the suppressed and favoured $B^0\rightarrow D K^+ \pi^-$ decay amplitudes, in a $K\pi$ mass region of $\pm50 MeV$ around the $K^*(892)^0$ mass and for an absolute value of the cosine of the $K^{*0}$ decay angle larger than $0.4$.
