Search for CP-Violation in D 0 → π 0 π 0 π 0 Decays
I have searched for a CP violating asymmetry in the neutral charm meson decay of D -> π 0 π 0 π 0 . I present here a brief description of CP violation and the CLEO II.V detector, the methods used to
Revisiting CP violation in D→PP and VP decays
Direct CP violation in the hadronic charm decays provides a good testing ground for the Kobayashi-Maskawa mechanism in the Standard Model. Any significant deviations from the expectation would be
Direct CP violation in two-body hadronic charmed meson decays
Motivated by the recent observation of $CP$ violation in the charm sector by LHCb, we study direct $CP$ asymmetries in the standard model (SM) for the singly Cabibbo-suppressed two-body hadronic
Branching ratios and direct CP asymmetries in D -> PV decays
We study the two-body hadronic D -> PV decays, where P (V) denotes a pseudoscalar (vector) meson, in the factorization- assisted topological- amplitude approach proposed in our previous work. This
New physics and CP violation in singly Cabibbo suppressed D decays
We analyze various theoretical aspects of $CP$ violation in singly Cabibbo suppressed (SCS) $D$ meson decays, such as $D\ensuremath{\rightarrow}KK,\ensuremath{\pi}\ensuremath{\pi}$. In particular, we
Observation of CP Violation in Charm Decays.
The first observation of CP violation in the decay of charm hadrons is observed, where the measured value differs from zero by more than 5 standard deviations.
Measurement of branching fractions for D meson decaying into ϕ meson and a pseudoscalar meson
Abstract The four decay modes D 0 → ϕ π 0 , D 0 → ϕ η , D + → ϕ π + , and D + → ϕ K + are studied by using a data sample taken at the centre-of-mass energy s = 3.773 GeV with the BESIII detector,
Muon identification in the Belle experiment at KEKB
This paper describes the muon identification method and its performance in the Belle experiment at KEKB. Muon and hadron likelihood are calculated for each track using its range and transverse
Hadronic D decays involving scalar mesons
The nonleptonic weak decays of charmed mesons into a scalar meson and a pseudoscalar meson are studied. The scalar mesons under consideration are $\sigma$ [or $f_0(600)$], $\kappa$, $f_0(980)$,
Observation of the radiative decay D*+→D+ γ
We have observed a signal for the decay D^(*+)→D^+γ at a significance of 4 standard deviations. From the measured branching ratio B(D^(*+)→D^+γ)/B(D^(*+)→D^+π^0) = 0.055±0.014±0.010 we find
