Measurement of CP asymmetry in $B{_s}{^0} \to D{_s}{^\mp} K^\pm$ decays


LHCb Collaboration; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Serra, N; Steinkamp, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A; et al (2018). Measurement of CP asymmetry in $B{_s}{^0} \to D{_s}{^\mp} K^\pm$ decays. Journal of High Energy Physics, 03:059.

Abstract

We report the measurements of the CP -violating parameters in B s 0  → D s ∓ K± decays observed in pp collisions, using a data set corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb−1 recorded with the LHCb detector. We measure Cf = 0.73 ± 0.14 ± 0.05, A f ΔΓ  = 0.39 ± 0.28 ± 0.15, \( {A}_{\overline{f}}^{\varDelta \varGamma }=0.31\pm 0.28\pm 0.15 \), Sf = −0.52 ± 0.20 ± 0.07, \( {S}_{\overline{f}}=-0.49\pm 0.20\pm 0.07 \), where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. These parameters are used together with the world-average value of the B s 0 mixing phase, −2βs, to obtain a measurement of the CKM angle γ from B s 0  → D s ∓ K± decays, yielding γ = (128 − 22 + 17 )° modulo 180°, where the uncertainty contains both statistical and systematic contributions. This corresponds to 3.8 σ evidence for CP violation in the interference between decay and decay after mixing.
