Abstract

A search for time-integrated CP violation in D<sup>0</sup>→h<sup>-</sup>h<sup>+</sup> (h=K, π) decays is presented using 0.62  fb<sup>-1</sup> of data collected by LHCb in 2011. The flavor of the charm meson is determined by the charge of the slow pion in the D<sup>*+</sup>→D<sup>0</sup>π<sup>+</sup> and D<sup>*-</sup>→D̅<sup> 0</sup>π<sup>-</sup> decay chains. The difference in CP asymmetry between D<sup>0</sup>→K<sup>-</sup>K<sup>+</sup> and D<sup>0</sup>→π<sup>-</sup>π<sup>+</sup>, ΔA<sub>CP</sub>≡A<sub>CP</sub>(K<sup>-</sup>K<sup>+</sup>)-A<sub>CP</sub>(π<sup>-</sup>π<sup>+</sup>), is measured to be [-0.82±0.21(stat)±0.11(syst)]%. This differs from the hypothesis of CP conservation by 3.5 standard deviations.
