Title: Measurement of the branching fraction and C P asymmetry in B 0 π 0 π 0 decays, and an improved constraint on Φ 2

Abstract

We measure the branching fraction and CP violation asymmetry in the decay B0 ! 00, using a data sample of 752 106 BB pairs collected at the (4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB e+e collider. The obtained branching fraction and direct CP asymmetry are B(B !00) = [1:31 0:19 (stat.) 0:19 (syst.)] 106 and ACP = +0:14 0:36 (stat.) :10 (syst.); respectively. The signal signicance, including the systematic uncertainty, is 6.4 standard deviations. We combine these results with Belle's earlier measurements of B0 ! + and B ! 0 to exclude the CP-violating parameter 2 from the range 15:5 < 2 < 75:0 at 95% condence level.
