Determination of {gamma} from charmless B{yields}M{sub 1}M{sub 2} decays using Uspin
Abstract
In our previous paper we applied Uspin symmetry to charmless hadronic B{sup {+}}{yields}M{sup 0}M{sup {+}} decays for the purpose of precise extraction of the unitarity angle {gamma}. In this paper we extend our approach to neutral B{sup 0} and B{sub s}{yields}M{sub 1}M{sub 2} decays. A very important feature of this method is that no assumptions regarding relative sizes of topological decay amplitudes need to be made. As a result, this method avoids an uncontrollable theoretical uncertainty that is often related to the neglect of some topological diagrams (e.g., exchange and annihilation graphs) in quarkdiagrammatic approaches. In charged B{sup {+}} decays, each of the four data sets, P{sup 0}P{sup {+}}, P{sup 0}V{sup {+}}, V{sup 0}P{sup {+}} and V{sup 0}V{sup {+}}, with P{identical_to}pseudoscalar and V{identical_to}vector, can be used to obtain a value of {gamma}. Among neutral decays, only experimental data in the B{sup 0}, B{sub s}{yields}P{sup }P{sup +} subsector is sufficient for a Uspin fit. Application of the Uspin approach to the current charged and neutral B decay data yields: {gamma}=(80{sub 8}{sup +6}) deg. In this method, which is completely data driven, in a few years we should be able to obtain a modelindependent determination of {gamma} with an accuracy of O(fewmore »

The decays of B mesons to a pair of charmless pseudoscalar mesons (PP decays) have been analyzed within the framework of flavor SU(3) symmetry and quarkdiagrammatic topological approach. Flavor symmetry breaking is taken into account in tree (T) amplitudes through ratios of decay constants fK and f{pi}; exact SU(3) is assumed elsewhere. Acceptable fits to B {yields} PP branching ratios and CP asymmetries are obtained with tree, colorsuppressed and QCD penguin amplitudes. Singlet penguin amplitude was introduced to describe decay amplitudes of the modes with {eta} and {eta}' mesons in the final state. Electroweak penguin amplitudes were expressed in termsmore »

Measurement of the moments of the photon energy spectrum in B{yields}X{sub s}{gamma} decays and determination of V{sub cb} and m{sub b} at Belle
Using the previous Belle measurement of the inclusive photon energy in B{yields}X{sub s}{gamma} decays, we determine the first and second moments of this spectrum for minimum photon energies in the B meson rest frame ranging from 1.8 to 2.3 GeV. Combining these measurements with recent Belle data on the lepton energy and hadronic mass moments in B{yields}X{sub c}l{nu} decays, we perform fits to theoretical expressions derived in the 1S and kinetic mass schemes and extract the magnitude of the CabibboKobayashiMaskawa matrix element V{sub cb}, the bquark mass, and other nonperturbative parameters. In the 1S scheme analysis we find V{sub cb}=(41.56{+}0.68(fit){+}0.08({tau}{submore » 
Rescattering effects in charmless B{sub u,d,s}{yields}PP decays
We study the finalstate interaction (FSI) effects in charmless B{sub u,d,s}{yields}PP decays. We consider a FSI approach with both short and longdistance contributions, where the former are from inelastic channels and are contained in factorization amplitudes, while the latter are from the residual rescattering among PP states. Flavor SU(3) symmetry is used to constrain the residual rescattering S matrix. We fit to all available data on the CPaveraged decay rates and CP asymmetries, and make predictions on unmeasured ones. We investigate the K{pi} direct CP violations that lead to the socalled K{pi} puzzle in CP violation. Our main results aremore » 
Charmless B{yields}K{sub h{eta}}{sup (')} decays with K{sub h}=K, K{sup *}, K{sub 0}{sup *}(1430), K{sub 2}{sup *}(1430)
We study the charmless decays B{yields}K{sub h{eta}} and B{yields}K{sub h{eta}}{sup '} within the framework of QCD factorization (QCDF) for K{sub h}=K, K{sup *}, K{sub 0}{sup *}(1430) and naive factorization for K{sub h}=K{sub 2}{sup *}(1430). There are three distinct types of penguin contributions: (i) b{yields}sqq{yields}s{eta}{sub q}, (ii) b{yields}sss{yields}s{eta}{sub s}, and (iii) b{yields}sqq{yields}qK{sub h}, where {eta}{sub q}=(uu+dd)/{radical}(2) and {eta}{sub s}=ss. B{yields}K{sup (*){eta}(')} decays are dominated by typeII and typeIII penguin contributions. The interference, constructive for K{eta}{sup '} and K{sup *{eta}} and destructive for K{eta} and K{sup *{eta}'}, between typeII and typeIII diagrams explains the pattern of {Gamma}(B{yields}K{eta}{sup '})>>{Gamma}(B{yields}K{eta}) and {Gamma}(B{yields}K{sup *{eta}'})<<{Gamma}(B{yields}K{sup *{eta}}).more » 
Measurement of branching fractions of B decays to K{sub 1}(1270){pi} and K{sub 1}(1400){pi} and determination of the CKM angle {alpha} from B{sup 0{yields}}a{sub 1}(1260){sup {+}{pi}{+}}
We report measurements of the branching fractions of neutral and charged B meson decays to final states containing a K{sub 1}(1270) or K{sub 1}(1400) meson and a charged pion. The data, collected with the BABAR detector at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, correspond to 454x10{sup 6} BB pairs produced in e{sup +}e{sup } annihilation. We measure the branching fractions B(B{sup 0{yields}}K{sub 1}(1270){sup +{pi}}+K{sub 1}(1400){sup +{pi}})=3.1{sub 0.7}{sup +0.8}x10{sup 5} and B(B{sup +{yields}}K{sub 1}(1270){sup 0{pi}+}+K{sub 1}(1400){sup 0{pi}+})=2.9{sub 1.7}{sup +2.9}x10{sup 5} (<8.2x10{sup 5} at 90% confidence level), where the errors are statistical and systematic combined. The B{sup 0} decay mode is observed withmore »
