June 8, 2005Georges Vasseur3 CP violation CP violation is explained in the Standard Model by a phase in the CKM unitary matrix. In the Wolfenstein parameterization:   with  0.22, A  0.83 CP violation if  ≠ 0.

June 8, 2005Georges Vasseur9 Common features of the analyses Kinematical signal identification with –Beam energy substituted mass –Energy difference Hadron ID (separation  /K). Event-shape variables combined in a neural network (NN) or Fisher discriminant to suppress jet-like continuum event.

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.

June 8, 2005Georges Vasseur11 Details of the B 0 →ρ + ρ - analysis Unbinned extended maximum likelihood fit on a data sample of 68703 events. 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). Extract signal yield, longitudinal polarization fraction, cosine and sine coefficients. 232 M BB

June 8, 2005Georges Vasseur13 B + →ρ + ρ 0 analysis For isospin analysis, need other B→  rates. B + →ρ + ρ 0 was measured two years ago by both BaBar and Belle. Phys.Rev.Lett 91, 171802 (2003)Phys.Rev.Lett 91, 221801 (2003) 89 M BB 85 M BB

June 8, 2005Georges Vasseur14 B 0 →ρ 0 ρ 0 analysis Limiting factor in the isospin analysis. Tree is color suppressed. No significant signal: –Penguin are smalls. Dominant systematic comes from the potential interference from B→a 1 ±  ± (~22%). BaBar, Phys.Rev.Lett 94, 131801 (2005)

June 8, 2005Georges Vasseur17 Time-dependent Dalitz analysis Extract  and strong phases using interferences between amplitudes of decay. 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 {       }

June 8, 2005Georges Vasseur19 Combined α measurement The best individual measurement comes from . Mirror solution are disfavored, thanks to . Good agreement with global CKM fit. Combined value: http://ckmfitter.in2p3.fr

June 8, 2005Georges Vasseur20 Summary CP violation has entered a phase of precision measurements thanks to the B-factories. The angle  of the unitarity triangle has been measured with an uncertainty of ~10°. Will still improve. http://ckmfitter.in2p3.fr
