We present a measurement of the time-dependent CP-violating (CPV) asymmetries in B0-->K(0)(S)pi(0) decays based on 124x10(6) Upsilon(4S)-->BB decays collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B factory at SLAC. In a sample containing 122+/-16 signal decays, we obtain the magnitudes of the direct CPV asymmetry(More)
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 the semileptonic decays B--->D0tau-nutau, B--->D*0tau-nutau, B0-->D+tau-nutau, and B0-->D*+tau-nutau, which are potentially sensitive to non-standard model amplitudes. The data sample comprises 232x10(6) Upsilon(4S)-->BB decays collected with the BABAR detector. From a combined fit to B- and B0 channels, we obtain the branching(More)
We report on exclusive decays of B mesons into final states containing charmonium using data collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II storage rings. The charmonium states considered here are J/ψ , ψ(2S), and χ c1. Branching fractions for several exclusive final states, a measurement of the decay amplitudes for the B 0 → J/ψ K * decay, and(More)
The BABAR detector, situated at the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric e + e − collider, has been recording data at energies on and around the Υ (4S) resonance since May 1999. In this paper, we briefly describe the PEP-II B Factory and the BABAR detector. The performance presently achieved by the experiment in the areas of tracking, vertexing, calorimetry and particle(More)
A large acceptance and high luminosity measurement of identiied hadrons from deep inelastic scattering of polarised muons from a polarised solid state target is proposed. The gluon polarisation G=G will be determined with a precision of ((G=G) = 0:15 from the measured asymmetries of open charm production from a longitudinally po-larised target. The spin(More)
We present the final results of the spin asymmetries A 1 and the spin structure functions g 1 of the proton and the deuteron in the kinematic range 0.0008ϽxϽ0.7 and 0.2ϽQ 2 Ͻ100 GeV 2. For the determination of A 1 , in addition to the usual method which employs inclusive scattering events and includes a large radiative background at low x, we use a new(More)
We present a study of B decays into semileptonic final states containing charged and neutral D1(2420) and D_{2};{*}(2460). The analysis is based on a data sample of 208 fb;{-1} collected at the Upsilon(4S) resonance with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B factory at SLAC. With a simultaneous fit to four different decay chains, the(More)
We present the results of the spin asymmetries A 1 of the proton and the deuteron in the kinematic region extending down to xϭ6ϫ10 Ϫ5 and Q 2 ϭ0.01 GeV 2. The data were taken with a dedicated low x trigger, which required hadron detection in addition to the scattered muon, so as to reduce the background at low x. The results complement our previous(More)
