CP violation in the Standard Model

CP violation arises due to complex CKM matrix; e.g. Wolfenstein parametrisation:

CKM unitarity; represent as triangle in r,h plane

Vtd e-ib

Vub e-ig

- is third internal angle

Paul Dauncey - BaBar

Direct CP violation

CP violation requires interference between at least two amplitudes with different phases, e.g. B0 K+p-

T

Relative weak phaseeig

K+p-

B0

P

CP violation gives a non-zero asymmetry:

AKp = G(B0 K-p+)-G(B0 K+p-)/G(B0 K-p+)+G(B0 K+p-)

In principle leads tog measurement

CP violation gives a time-dependent asymmetry:

Amplitude = Im(ei2b) = sin2b

Leads to b measurement: see talk by S. Rahatlou

If both tree and penguin significant: parametrise as sin2aeff

Interpretation also depends on strong amplitudes

Paul Dauncey - BaBar

Experimental reality

Analysis is different from B0 J/Y K0S…

- No clean pp or Kp sample; need to determine particle type
- Particle identification needed
- Analyse both modes simultaneously; also include KK

- No clean signal sample; high backgrounds from udsc
- Branching fractions are ~ 10–6– 10–5
- Need to use kinematics and event shapes to distinguish modes
- Use unbinned maximum likelihood fit to extract signals
…but some elements are identical:

- Need to “tag” the other B to find if B0 or B0
- Use lepton charge, K charge or neural networks
- Inefficiency and impurity (“dilution”)

- Cannot measure time directly
- Time difference Dt between two B decays

Analysis overview

Analysis is done in two stages:

- Direct CP; extract branching fractions for pp, Kp and KK and also the Kp decay CP asymmetry AKp
- Maximum likelihood fit to kinematic/event shape quantities
- Requires no tag or vertex measurement
- Separate fit reduces systematic error

- Indirect CP; extract pp CP asymmetry sin2aeff
- Fix branching fractions and AKpto above results
- Requires tag to determine if B0 or B0
- Requires vertex information to find time dependence
All results are preliminary

B candidate mass using beam “energy substitution”

mES = (Ebeam2 – pB2) in CM

Select 5.2 < mES < 5.3 GeV/c2

- Depends on reconstructed momentum of B candidate, pB ~ 325 MeV
- Same for all signal modes
- Resolution dominated by beam energy uncertainty
- s(mES) ~ 2.6 MeV/c2
- Signal shape from MC, background from fit

Paul Dauncey - BaBar

Branching fraction maximum likelihood fit

Five input variables per event; assume independent (uncorrelated) PDFs for each:

- mES
- F Discriminate signal from background
- DE
- qC+ Discriminate different signal modes
- qC–
Eight fit parameters: four for signal, four for background

- N(p+p-)
- N(K+p-)
- N(p+K-)
- N(K+ K-)

Fit directly for N(Kp) and AKp:

N(K+p-) = N(Kp) (1–AKp)/2

N(p+K-) = N(Kp) (1+AKp)/2

Paul Dauncey - BaBar

Branching fraction results

Fit results are:

No significant direct CP violation seen in B0 K+p-

- 90% C.L. –0.14 AKp 0.05
- Main systematics:
- Branching fractions – uncertainty in shape of qC PDF
- Asymmetry - possible charge bias in track and qC reconstruction

Paul Dauncey - BaBar

Branching fraction projections

Likelihood projections: remove one variable from fit and cut on fit probabilities to give enhanced signal samples:

Fit sample: 17585 candidates, e ~ 38%

Paul Dauncey - BaBar

Measuring indirect CP violation

Extend the branching fraction analysis to extract indirect CP information:

- Needs extra information on:
- Time of decay (vertexing); reconstruct “other” B decay point and find time difference of B decays
- Flavour of the decaying B0 (tagging); use tracks whose charge carries flavour information
- Use identical techniques to sin2b analysis

- Fit for CP violation asymmetries while holding branching fractions and Kp asymmetry to previously determined values
- Vary these parameters within determined errors for systematics; small effect for asymmetries

Paul Dauncey - BaBar

Vertexing and Dt

Asymmetric beam energies mean Y(4s) is boosted:

bg = 0.55

Dt @Dz/gbc

Dt is time difference between the two decays:

- Resolution is dominated by the “other” B, s(Dt) ~ 0.8 ps
- Independent of signal type
- Can use same resolution model as sin2b analysis
- Exploit mixing to measure signal performance (dilutions) and efficiencies
- Signal resolution determined from large sample of fully reconstructed B’s, background shape determined from fit

Paul Dauncey - BaBar

Signal yield time dependences

The signal modes depend differently on Dt:

- ppgeneral form allows for both tree and penguin: rates
- f(Dt) ~ 1 Spp sin(DmdDt) Cpp cos(DmdDt) for B0(B0) tag
- Spp = 2Im(l)/(1+|l|2) and Cpp = (1-|l|2)/(1+|l|2)
- For pure tree, l = ei2a so Spp = sin2a and Cpp = 0
- With some penguin contribution,Cpp 0andSpp = (1-Cpp2) sin2aeff

- Kptime dependence due to B0 mixing: rates
- f(Dt) ~ 1 cos(DmdDt) for unmixed (mixed) B0

- KK general form similar to pp in principle
- Model with simple exponential

- Actual PDFs used in fit:
- Diluted due to mistags
- Convolved with Dt resolution functions
