Title: Evidence for Isospin Violation and Measurement of C P Asymmetries in B K * ( 892 ) γ

Here, we report the first evidence for isospin violation in B → K*γ and the first measurement of the difference of CP asymmetries between B+→K*+γ and B 0 → K* 0γ. This analysis is based on the data sample containing 772 × 10 6$$B\overline{B}$$ pairs that was collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB energy-asymmetric e +e - collider. We find evidence for the isospin violation with a significance of 3.1σ, Δ 0+ = [+6.2 ± 1.5(stat) ± 0.6(syst) ± 1.2(f +-/ f 00)]% , where the third uncertainty is due to the uncertainty on the fraction of B +B - to B 0B 0 production in Υ(4S) decays. The measured value is consistent with predictions of the standard model. The result for the difference of CP asymmetries is ΔA CP = [+2.4 ± 2.8(stat)± 0.5(syst)]% , consistent with zero. The measured branching fractions and CP asymmetries for charged and neutral B meson decays are the most precise to date. Finally, we also calculate the ratio of branching fractions of B 0 → K* 0γ to B$$0\atop{s}$$ → Φγ.
