Measurement of the strong-phase difference between D0 and D0bar decays to KsKK at CLEO-c and a determination of observables related to CP violation in B±->DK± decays at LHCb

Abstract:

A central goal of flavour physics is a precise determination of the elements of the CKM matrix, which quantifies the strength of charged-current weak interactions between quarks. Of particular interest is the angle γ in the 'b-d' unitarity triangle parameterisation of the CKM matrix. One of the most promising methods to determine γ directly is to measure CP violation in interfering B±->DK± decays, where D indicates a coherent superposition of D0 and D0bar, both of which decay to the sa...
