Title: First measurement of the $$ {\Lambda}_c^{+} $$ → pη′ decay
A bstract We present the first measurement of the branching fraction of the singly Cabibbo-suppressed (SCS) decay $$ {\Lambda}_c^{+} $$ Λ c + → pη ′ with η ′ → ηπ + π − , using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 981 fb − 1 , collected by the Belle detector at the KEKB e + e − asymmetric-energy collider. A significant $$ {\Lambda}_c^{+} $$ Λ c + → pη ′ signal is observed for the first time with a signal significance of 5.4 σ . The relative branching fraction with respect to the normalization mode $$ {\Lambda}_c^{+} $$ Λ c + → pK − π + is measured to be $$ \frac{\mathcal{B}\left({\Lambda}_c^{+}\to p\eta^{\prime}\right)}{\mathcal{B}\left({\Lambda}_c^{+}\to {pK}^{-}{\pi}^{+}\right)}=\left(7.54\pm 1.32\pm 0.73\right)\times {10}^{-3}, $$ B Λ c + → pη ′ B Λ c + → pK − π + = 7.54 ± 1.32 ± 0.73 × 10 − 3 , where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. Using the world-average value of $$ \mathcal{B}\left({\Lambda}_c^{+}\to {pK}^{-}{\pi}^{+}\right) $$ B Λ c + → pK − π + = (6 . 28 ± 0 . 32) × 10 − 2 , we obtain $$ \mathcal{B}\left({\Lambda}_c^{+}\to p\eta^{\prime}\right)=\left(4.73\pm 0.82\pm 0.46\pm 0.24\right)\times {10}^{-4}, $$ B more » Λ c + → pη ′ = 4.73 ± 0.82 ± 0.46 ± 0.24 × 10 − 4 , where the uncertainties are statistical, systematic, and from $$ \mathcal{B}\left({\Lambda}_c^{+}\to {pK}^{-}{\pi}^{+}\right) $$ B Λ c + → pK − π + , respectively. « less

  4. A bstract We measure the branching fractions and CP asymmetries for the singly Cabibbo-suppressed decays D 0 → π + π − η , D 0 → K + K − η , and D 0 → ϕη , using 980 fb − 1 of data from the Belle experiment at the KEKB e + e − collider.

The results for the CP asymmetries are $$ {\displaystyle \begin{array}{c}{A}_{CP}\left({D}^0\ {\pi}^{+}{\pi}^{-}\eta \right)=\left[0.9\pm 1.2\left(\mathrm{stat}\right)\pm 0.5\left(\mathrm{syst}\right)\right]\%,\\ {}{A}_{CP}\left({D}^0\to {K}^{+}{K}^{-}\eta \right)=\left[-1.4\pm 3.3\left(\mathrm{stat}\right)\pm 1.1\left(\mathrm{syst}\right)\right]\%,\\ {} ACP\ \left({D}^0\to \phi \eta \right)=\left[-1.9\pm 4.4\left(\mathrm{stat}\right)\pm 0.6\left(\mathrm{syst}\right)\right]\%.\end{array}} $$ A CP D 0 π + π − η = 0.9 ± 1.2 stat ± 0.5 syst % , A CP D 0 → K + K − η = − 1.4 ± 3.3 stat ± 1.1 syst % , ACP D 0 → ϕη = − 1.9 ± 4.4 stat ± 0.6 syst % . The results for D 0 → π + π − η are a significant improvement over previous results. The branching fraction and A CP results for D 0 → K + K − η , and the ACP result for D 0 → ϕη , are the first such measurements. No evidence for CP violation is found in any of these decays.« less
  5. A bstract Searches for CP violation in the two-body decays $$ {D}_{(s)}^{+}\to {h}^{+}{\pi}^0 $$ D s + → h + π 0 and $$ {D}_{(s)}^{+}\to {h}^{+}\eta $$ D s + → h + η (where h + denotes a π + or K + meson) are performed using pp collision data collected by the LHCb experiment corresponding to either 9 fb − 1 or 6 fb − 1 of integrated luminosity. The π 0 and η mesons are reconstructed using the e + e − γ final state, which can proceed as three-body decays π 0 → e + e − γ and η → e + e − γ , or via the two-body decays π 0 → γγ and η → γγ followed by a photon conversion. The measurements are made relative to the control modes $$ {D}_{(s)}^{+}\to {K}_{\mathrm{S}}^0{h}^{+} $$ D s + → K S 0 h + to cancel the production and detection asymmetries. The CP asymmetries are measured to be $$ {\displaystyle \begin{array}{c}{\mathcal{A}}_{CP}\left({D}^{+}\to {\pi}^{+}{\pi}^0\right)=\left(-1.3\pm 0.9\pm 0.6\right)\%,\\ {}{\mathcal{A}}_{CP}\left({D}^{+}\to {K}^{+}{\pi}^0\right)=\left(-3.2\pm 4.7\pm 2.1\right)\%,\\ {}\begin{array}{c}{\mathcal{A}}_{CP}\left({D}^{+}\to {\pi}^{+}\eta \right)=\left(-0.2\pm 0.8\pm 0.4\right)\%,\\ {}{\mathcal{A}}_{CP}\left({D}^{+}\to {K}^{+}\eta \right)=\left(-6\pm 10\pm 4\right)\%,\\ {}\begin{array}{c}{\mathcal{A}}_{CP}\left({D}_s^{+}\to {K}^{+}{\pi}^0\right)=\left(-0.8\pm 3.9\pm 1.2\right)\%,\\ {}\begin{array}{c}{\mathcal{A}}_{CP}\left({D}_s^{+}\to {\pi}^{+}\eta \right)=\left(0.8\pm 0.7\pm 0.5\right)\%,\\ {}{\mathcal{A}}_{CP}\left({D}_s^{+}\to {K}^{+}\eta \right)=\left(0.9\pm 3.7\pm 1.1\right)\%,\end{array}\end{array}\end{array}\end{array}} $$more »A CP D + → π + π 0 = − 1.3 ± 0.9 ± 0.6 % , A CP D + → K + π 0 = − 3.2 ± 4.7 ± 2.1 % , A CP D + → π + η = − 0.2 ± 0.8 ± 0.4 % , A CP D + → K + η = − 6 ± 10 ± 4 % , A CP D s + → K + π 0 = − 0.8 ± 3.9 ± 1.2 % , A CP D s + → π + η = 0.8 ± 0.7 ± 0.5 % , A CP D s + → K + η = 0.9 ± 3.7 ± 1.1 % , where the first uncertainties are statistical and the second systematic.
