Observation of the decay Ξ−b→pK−K

Abstract:

Decays of the Ξ−b and Ω−b baryons to the charmless final states ph−h'−, where h(') denotes a kaon or pion, are searched for with the LHCb detector. The analysis is based on a sample of proton-proton collision data collected at center-of-mass energies √s=7 and 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb^−1. The decay Ξ−b→pK−K− is observed with a significance of 8.7 standard deviations, and evidence at the level of 3.4 standard deviations is found for the Ξ−b→pK−π− decay. Results a...
