Measurement of CP-Violating Asymmetries in the B0 to K+K-K0 Dalitz Plot

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The authors present a preliminary measurement of CP-violation parameters in the decay B{sup 0} {yields} K{sup +}K{sup -}K{sup 0}, using approximately 347 million B{bar B} events collected by the BABAR detector at SLAC. Reconstructing the neutral kaon as K{sub S}{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}, K{sub S}{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}, or K{sub L}{sup 0}, they analyze the Dalitz plot distribution and measure fractions to intermediate states. They extract CP parameters from the asymmetries in amplitudes and phases between B{sup 0} and {bar B}{sup 0} decays across the Dalitz plot. For decays to {phi}K{sup 0}, they find {beta}{sub eff} ... continued below

Description

The authors present a preliminary measurement of CP-violation parameters in the decay B{sup 0} {yields} K{sup +}K{sup -}K{sup 0}, using approximately 347 million B{bar B} events collected by the BABAR detector at SLAC. Reconstructing the neutral kaon as K{sub S}{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}, K{sub S}{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}, or K{sub L}{sup 0}, they analyze the Dalitz plot distribution and measure fractions to intermediate states. They extract CP parameters from the asymmetries in amplitudes and phases between B{sup 0} and {bar B}{sup 0} decays across the Dalitz plot. For decays to {phi}K{sup 0}, they find {beta}{sub eff} = 0.06 {+-} 0.16 {+-} 0.05, A{sub CP} = -0.18 {+-} 0.20 {+-} 0.10, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second one is systematic. For decays to f{sub 0}K{sup 0}, they find {beta}{sub eff} = 0.18 {+-} 0.19 {+-} 0.04, A{sub CP} = 0.45 {+-} 0.28 {+-} 0.10. Combining all K{sup +}K{sup -}K{sup 0} events and taking account of the different CP eigenvalues of the individual Dalitz plot components, they find {beta}{sub eff} = 0.361 {+-} 0.079 {+-} 0.037, A{sub CP} = -0.034 {+-} 0.079 {+-} 0.025. The trigonometric reflection at {pi}/2 - {beta}{sub eff} is disfavored at 4.6{sigma}. They also study angular distributions in B{sup 0} {yields} K{sup +}K{sup -}K{sub S}{sup 0} and B{sup +} {yields} {phi}K{sup +} decays and measure the direct CP asymmetry in B{sup +} {yields} {phi}K{sup +} decays, A{sub CP} = 0.046 {+-} 0.046 {+-} 0.017.
