### Search for the decay Bs -&gt; D*-+ π+-

Abstract:

A search for the decay Bs -> D*-+ \pi+- is presented using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb-1 of pp collisions collected by LHCb. This decay is expected to be mediated by a W-exchange diagram, with little contribution from rescattering processes, and therefore a measurement of the branching fraction will help to understand the mechanism behind related decays such as Bs -> \pi+ \pi- and Bs -> D Dbar. Systematic uncertainties are minimised by using B0 -...
