We present a new measurement of the time-dependent CP asymmetry of B0->D*+D*- decays using (471+-5) million BBbar pairs collected with the BaBar detector at the PEP-II B Factory at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. Using the technique of partial reconstruction, we measure the time-dependent CP asymmetry parameters S=-0.34+-0.12+-0.05$ and C=+0.15+-0.09+-0.04. Using the value for the CP-odd fraction R_perp=0.158+-0.028+-0.006, previously measured by BaBar with fully reconstructed B0->D*+D*- events, we extract the CP-even components S+=-0.49+-0.18+-0.07+-0.04 and C+=+0.15+-0.09+-0.04. In each case, the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic; the third uncertainty on S+ is the contribution from the uncertainty on R_perp. The measured value of the CP-even component S+ is consistent with the value of sin(2Beta...
We present a search for the lepton flavor violating decay modes B+/- to h+/- tau l (h= K,pi; l= e,mu) using the BaBar data sample, which corresponds to 472 million BBbar pairs. The search uses events where one B meson is fully reconstructed in one of several hadronic final states. Using the momenta of the reconstructed B, h, and l candidates, we are able to fully determine the tau four-momentum. The resulting tau candidate mass is our main discriminant against combinatorial background. We see no evidence for B+/- to h+/- tau l decays and set a 90% confidence level upper limit on each branching fraction at the level of a few times 10^-5.
We perform amplitude analyses of the decays $B^0 \to K^+K^-K^0_S$, $B^+ \rightarrow K^+K^-K^+$, and $B^+ \to K^0_S K^0_S K^+$, and measure CP-violating parameters and partial branching fractions. The results are based on a data sample of approximately $470\times 10^6$ $B\bar{B}$ decays, collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy $B$ factory at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. For $B^+ \to K^+K^-K^+$, we find a direct CP asymmetry in $B^+ \to \phi(1020)K^+$ of $A_{CP}= (12.8\pm 4.4 \pm 1.3)%$, which differs from zero by $2.8 \sigma$. For $B^0 \to K^+K^-K^0_S$, we measure the CP-violating phase $\beta_{\rm eff} (\phi(1020)K^0_S) = (21\pm 6 \pm 2)^\circ$. For $B^+ \to K^0_S K^0_S K^+$, we measure an overall direct CP asymmetry of $A_{CP} = (4 ^{+4}_{-5} \pm 2)%$. We also perform an angular-moment analysis o...
We search for the rare decay of the $D^{0}$ meson to two photons, $D^0 \rightarrow \gamma \gamma$, and present a measurement of the branching fraction for a $D^0$ meson decaying to two neutral pions, ${B}(D^0 \rightarrow \pi^0 \pi^0)$. The data sample analyzed corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 470.5 {\sl B {-0.4em} {\small\sl A} {-0.37em} \sl B {-0.4em} {\small\sl A {-0.02em}R}} detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy $e^{+} e^{-}$ collider at SLAC. We place an upper limit on the branching fraction for the decay of a $D^0$ meson to two photons, ${B}(D^0 \rightarrow \gamma \gamma) < 2.2 \times 10^{-6}$, at 90% confidence level, and find ${B}(D^0 \rightarrow \pi^0 \pi^0) = (8.4 \pm 0.1 \pm 0.4 \pm 0.3) \times 10^{-4}$.
We present a measurement of the $B \to \omega \ell \nu$ branching fraction based on a sample of 467 million BB pairs recorded by the BaBar detector at the SLAC PEP-2 e+e- collider. We observe $1041 \pm 133$ signal decays, corresponding to a branching fraction of $\BR(B \to \omega \ell \nu$) = (1.15 \pm 0.15 \pm 0.12) \times 10^{-4}$, where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic. The dependence of the decay rate on $q^2$, the momentum transfer squared to the lepton system, is compared to QCD predictions of the form factors based on a quark model and light-cone sum rules.
We have searched for the lepton-number violating processes B+ -> h- l+ l+ with h- = K-/pi- and l+ = e+/mu+, using a sample of 471+/-3 million BBbar events collected with the BaBar detector at the PEP-II e+e- collider at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. We find no evidence for these decays and place 90% confidence level upper limits on their branching fractions Br(B+ -> pi- e+ e+) < 2.3 x 10^{-8}, Br(B+ -> K- e+ e+) < 3.0 x 10^{-8}, Br(B+ -> pi- mu+ mu+) < 10.7 x 10^{-8}, and Br(B+ -> K- mu+ mu+) < 6.7 x 10^{-8}.
