We present an updated measurement of time-dependent CP-violating asymmetries in neutral B decays with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric B Factory at SLAC. This result uses an additional sample of Upsilon(4S) decays collected in 2001, bringing the data available to 32 x 10(6) BB macro pairs. We select events in which one neutral B meson is fully(More)
We present measurements of time-dependent CP-violating asymmetries in neutral B decays to several CP eigenstates. The measurement uses a data sample of 23x10(6) Upsilon(4S)-->BbarB decays collected by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric B Factory at SLAC. In this sample, we find events in which one neutral B meson is fully reconstructed in a CP(More)
We present measurements of the branching fraction and CP-violating asymmetries for neutral B decays to D(*+/-)D-/+. The measurement uses a data sample of approximately 88x10(6) Upsilon(4S)-->BBmacr; decays collected with the BABAR detector at the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric-energy e(+)-e(-) collider. By fully reconstructing the D(*+/-)D-/+ decay products, we(More)
We present a measurement of time-dependent CP-violating asymmetries in decays of neutral B mesons to the final states D(*-/+)pi(+/-), using approximately 82x10(6) BBmacr; events recorded by the BABAR experiment at the PEP-II e(+)e(-) storage ring. Events containing these decays are selected with a partial reconstruction technique, in which only the(More)
We present measurements of branching fractions and CP-violating asymmetries for two-body neutral B meson decays to charged pions and kaons based on a sample of about 88x10(6) Upsilon(4S)-->BB decays. From a time-independent fit we measure the charge-averaged branching fractions B(B0-->pi+pi-)=(4.7+/-0.6+/-0.2)x10(-6),(More)
A search for the exclusive radiative decays B → ρ(770)γ and B 0 → ω(782)γ is performed on a sample of 84 million BB events collected by the BABAR detector at the P EP − II asymmetric e + e − collider. No significant signal is seen in any of the channels. We set preliminary upper limits of B[B 0 → ρ 0 γ] < 1.4 × 10 −6 , B[B + → ρ + γ] < 2.3 × 10 −6 and B[B 0(More)
We present measurements, based on a sample of approximately 23x10(6) BB pairs, of the branching fractions and a search for CP-violating charge asymmetries in charmless hadronic decays of B mesons into two-body final states of kaons and pions. We find the branching fractions B(B0-->pi(+)pi(-)) = (4.1+/-1.0+/-0.7)x10(-6), B(B0-->K+pi(-)) =(More)
The D 0 mixing parameter y = ∆Γ/2Γ was determined by measuring the D 0 lifetime separately for the K − π + decay mode and the K − K + decay mode with 12.4 fb −1 of data collected by the BABAR experiment in 2001. Backgrounds were suppressed with the D * → D 0 π + decay and particle identification. The following preliminary result was obtained: y = (−1.0 ±(More)
We present a search for the B − → τ − ¯ ν decay in a data sample of 82 fb −1 collected at the Υ (4S) resonance with the BABAR detector at the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric B Factory. Continuum and combinatorial backgrounds are suppressed by selecting a sample of events with one completely reconstructed B. The decay products of the other B in the event are analyzed(More)
