Title: Updated branching fraction measurements of B(s)0 → KS0h+h'- decays

Abstract

The charmless three-body decays B( s) 0 → K S 0h +h' - (where h (') = π, K) are analysed using a sample of pp collision data recorded by the LHCb experiment, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb -1. The branching fractions are measured relative to that of the B 0 → K S 0π +π - decay.
