June 8, 2005Georges Vasseur10 B 0 →ρ + ρ - analysis B→ρ + ρ - B→ρ + ρ - not historically favored for measuring α: 2 π 0 s in the final state. 3 amplitudes (VV decay): A 0 (CP-even longitudinal), A || (CP-even transverse), A ┴ (CP-odd transverse). But turned out to be the best mode: Large branching fraction. Penguin pollution much smaller than in B→ππ. ~100% longitudinally polarized! Pure CP-even state.

Efficiency on signal: 7.7%. 8 observables: m ES, E, t, NN, m (x2), cos hel (x2). Modelisation of signal (1% of fit sample), continuum (92% of fit sample), and 38 different modes of B-background (7% of fit sample).

Assuming amplitude is dominated by , and resonances –The "f"s are functions of the Dalitz-plot and describe the kinematics of B→ (S→VS). –The "A"s are the complex amplitudes containing weak and strong phases. They are independent of the Dalitz variables. script { } refers to { }
