We present measurements of branching fractions and CP-violating asymmetries in B0-->rho(+/-)pi(-/+) and B0-->rho-K+ decays. The results are obtained from a data sample of 88.9 x 10(6) Upsilon(4S)-->BB decays collected with the BABAR detector at the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric-energy B Factory. From a time-dependent maximum likelihood fit we measure the branching fractions B(B0-->rho(+/-)pi(-/+))=[22.6+/-1.8 (stat)+/-2.2 (syst)]x10(-6) and B(B0-->rho-K+)=(7.3 -1.2( +1.3)+/-1.3)x10(-6), and the CP…

Direct CP violation, branching ratios and form factors B → π, B → K in B decays
The B ? ? and B ? K transitions involved in hadronic B decays are investigated in a phenomenological way through the framework of QCD factorization. By comparing our results with experimental
CP-violations in B decays
Recent results on CP-violation measurements in B decays from energy-asymmetric B-factory experiments are reported. Thanks to large accumulated data samples, CP-violations in B decays in mixing-decay
CP violation and the CKM matrix: assessing the impact of the asymmetric B factories
Abstract.We present an up-to-date profile of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix with emphasis on the interpretation of recent CP-violation results from the B factories. For this purpose, we review
The CKM Parameters
The Cabibbo–Kobayashi–Maskawa (CKM) matrix is a key element in describing flavor dynamics in the Standard Model. With only four parameters, this matrix is able to describe a large range of phenomena
Observing direct CP violation in untagged B-meson decays
Direct CP violation can exist in untagged B-meson decays to self-conjugate, three-particle final states; it would be realized as a population asymmetry in the untagged decay rate across the mirror
