Abstract

A binned Dalitz plot analysis of B ± → D K± decays, with D → K 0 S π +π − and D → K 0 S K +K −, is performed to measure the CP-violating observables x ± and y ± which are sensitive to the CKM angle γ. The analysis exploits 1.0 fb−1 of data collected by the LHCb experiment. The study makes no modelbased assumption on the variation of the strong phase of the D decay amplitude over the Dalitz plot, but uses measurements of this quantity from CLEO-c as input. The values of the parameters are found to be x − =(0.0±4.3±1.5±0.6)×10−2 , y − =(2.7±5.2±0.8±2.3)×10−2 , x + =(−10.3±4.5±1.8± 1.4)×10−2 and y + =(−0.9±3.7±0.8±3.0)×10−2 . The first, second, and third uncertainties are the statistical, the experimental systematic, and the error associated with the precision of the strong-phase parameters measured at CLEO-c, respectively. These results correspond to γ = (44+43 −38) ◦ , with a second solution at γ → γ + 180◦ , and r B = 0.07 ± 0.04, where r B is the ratio between the suppressed and favoured B decay amplitudes.
