Hadronic B Decays to Charm and Charmonium With the BaBar Experiment

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The BABAR experiment has recorded the decays of more than 465 x 10{sup 6} B{bar B} pairs since 1999, and is reaching an unprecedented precision in the measurement of hadronic B decays. The following results are presented: tests of QCD factorization with the decays B {yields} {chi}{sub c0}K*, B {yields} {chi}{sub c1,2}K{sup (*)}, and {bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D{sup (*)0}h{sup 0}, h{sup 0} = {pi}{sup 0}, {eta}, {omega}, {eta}{prime}, study of the decays to charmonium B {yields} {eta}{sub c}K{sup (*)}, {eta}{sub c}(2S)K{sup (*)} and h{sub c}K{sup (*)}, measurement of the mass difference between neutral and charged B's, measurement of the ... continued below
