Title: Observation of Z b ( 10610 ) and Z b ( 10650 ) Decaying to B Mesons

Abstract

We detail the analysis of the three-body e + e - B B ¯ π ± , B B ¯ * π ± , and B * B ¯ * π ± processes, including the first observations of the Z b ± ( 10 610 ) [ B B ¯ * + c . c . ] ± and Z b ± ( 10 650 ) [ B * B ¯ * ] ± transitions that are found to dominate the corresponding final states. We measure Born cross sections for the three-body production of σ ( e + e - [ B B ¯ * + c . c . ] ± π ) = [ 17.4 ± 1.6 ( stat ) ± 1.9 ( syst ) ] pb and σ ( e + e - [ B * B ¯ * ] ± π ) = [ 8.75 ± 1.15 ( stat ) ± 1.04 ( syst ) ] pb and set a 90% C.L. upper limit of σ ( e + e - [ B B ¯ ] ± π ) < 2.9 pb . The results are based on a 121.4 fb - 1 data sample collected with the Belle detector at a center-of-mass energy near the Υ ( 10 860 ) peak.
