Title: Measurement of branching fractions of hadronic decays of the Ω c 0 baryon

Abstract

Using a data sample of 980 fb–1 of $e^+e^–$ annihilation data taken with the Belle detector operating at the KEKB asymmetric-energy $e^+e^–$ collider, we report the results of a study of the decays of the $$Ω^0_c$$ charmed baryon into hadronic final states. We report the most precise measurements to date of the relative branching fractions of the $$Ω^0_c$$ into $Ω^–π^+π^0, Ω^–π^+π^–π^+$, $Ξ^–K^–π^+π^+$, and $Ξ^0K^–π^+$, as well as the first measurements of the branching fractions of the $$Ω^0_c$$ into $$Ξ^–\overline{K}^0π^+$$, $$Ξ^0\overline{K}^0$$, and $$Λ\overline{K}^0\overline{K}^0$$, all with respect to the $Ω^–π^+$ decay. In addition, we investigate the resonant substructure of these modes. Finally, we present a limit on the branching fraction for the decay $$Ω^0_c→Σ^+K^–K^–π^+$$.
