Title: Measurement of time-dependent C P violation in B 0 K S 0 π 0 π 0 decays

Abstract

Here, we report a measurement of time-dependent CP violation in B 0 → K 0 Sπ 0π 0 decays using a data sample of 772 × 10 6 B¯B pairs collected by the Belle experiment running at the Υ(4S) resonance at the KEKB e +e collider. This decay proceeds mainly via a b → sd¯d “penguin” amplitude. The results are sin2Φ eff 1 = 0.92 +0.27 –0.31 (stat.) ±0.11 (syst.) and A = 0.28 ± 0.21 (stat.) ±0.04 (syst.), which are the most precise measurements of CP violation in this decay mode to date. The value for the CP-violating parameter sin2Φ eff 1 is consistent with that obtained using decay modes proceeding via a b → c¯cs “tree” amplitude.
