It is shown that the weak phase gamma=arg(-V_{ud}V^*_{ub}V_{cb}V_{cd}^*) can be determined using only untagged decays B/Bbar--> D K_S. In order to reduce the uncertainty in gamma, we suggest combining information from B^{+-}--> DK^{+-} and from untagged B^0 decays, where the D meson is observed in common decay modes. Theoretical assumptions, which may further reduce the statistical error, are also discussed. 
The ultimate theoretical error on γ from B → DK decays
A bstractThe angle γ of the standard CKM unitarity triangle can be determined from B → DK decays with a very small irreducible theoretical error, which is only due to second order electroweakExpand
The case for measuring gamma precisely
We first review the methods for determining gamma from B->D K decays that appeared after CKM 2008. We then discuss the theoretical errors in gamma extraction. The errors due to neglected D-Dbar andExpand
CP violation in τ± → π±KSv and D± → π±KS: the importance of KS − KL interference
A bstractThe B-factories have measured CP asymmetries in the τ → πKSν and D → KSπ modes. The KS state is identified by its decay to two pions at a time that is close to the KS lifetime. Within theExpand
Electroweak effects in the extraction of the CKM angle γ from B → Dπ decays
Abstract The angle γ of the standard CKM unitarity triangle can be determined from tree-level B-meson decays essentially without hadronic uncertainties. We calculate the second-order electroweakExpand

A method for model-independent measurement of the CKM angle β via time-dependent analysis of the B0 → Dπ+π−, D → Ks0π+π− decays
A bstractA new method for model-independent measurement of the CKM angle β is proposed, that employs time-dependent analysis of flavour-tagged B0 → Dπ+π− decays with D meson decays into CP$$Expand
A method of measuring cos(2β) using a time-dependent dalitz plot analysis ofB0→DCPπ+π−
We present a feasibility study of a previously outlined method for measuring both the sine and the cosine of twice the Cabibbo–Kobayashi—Maskawa (CKM) Unitarity Triangle angle β using aExpand
Quark Mixing and CP Violation — the Ckm Matrix
I summarize the theoretical progress in the determination of the CKM elements since Lepton-Photon 2003 and present the status of the elements and parameters of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa (CKM)Expand
Observation of the decay Bºs → D-ºφ
First observation of the decay Bos → D-oφ is reported using pp collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb−1, collected by the LHCb experiment at a centre-of-mass energy of 7Expand

A sensitivity study for the measurement of the CKM angle $\gamma$ from $B^0_s\rightarrow \tilde{D}^{(*)0}\phi$ decays is performed using $D$ meson reconstructed in the quasi flavour-specific modesExpand
