Progress in D0Ks K+ K- and Dº Ks K analysis

- Results from an exercise Dalitz fit for D+ K+K- +

D0Ks K+ K- Dalitz plot

- Detached sample, no tagging
- 2900 runs

D0Ks K+ K- Dalitz plot, tagged sample

D*++D0 K0barK+ K-

Look for resonances in either K+ K- or K0bar K+ and vice versa.

Detached sample with the D* tagging.

Determine the strangeness of the Ks by tagging the charm of the D0

Decay trees for this D0 decay mode, showing some possible resonances which couple u and d quarks to s quarks:

a0(980)

a0(980)?

f0(980)?

f0(980)

f(1020)?

f(1020)

Amir Rahimi/FOCUS

f0(980) simulation from Rodney Green’s thesis. y axis is M2(K-pi+) and x axis is M2(K- K+).

How is a0+ (980) simulated in MCFocus?

- Simulated the following decay and its c.c.
- D*+ D0p+
- a0+ (980) K-
- Ks K+
- p+ p -
- The Dalitz plot is populated according to a0+ (980) decay.

Revisit DºKs K with higher statistics

Recall we fit four signal yields to a function of 3 variables

+

- N = total yield
- = Charm-anti-Charm asymmetry (fragmentation dynamics)

+

The ² of this fit of 3 parameters with 4 dof is a test of hypothesis that CP is conserved which model is based on.

Summary

- We have looked at D0Ks K+ K- Dalitz plot with 2900 runs
- D* tagging virtually eliminates the background
- There is a clear indication of f(1020) resonance as well as some indications of both f0(980) and a0(980) resonances.
- It appears that MCFocus simulates a0(980) with the correct matrix element
- We are in the process of learning how to fit for a0(980)
- We repeated our CPV studies of DºKs K with higher statistics
- A significant improvement in ²
- The charm anti-charm asymmetry is around =0.015; more reasonable compared to =0.17
- We are seeing fK+=0.292 (+/- 0.023), the PDG value is fK+= 0.439 (+/- 0.1)

D+ K+K- + sample (provided by JEW):

- We pick a “dirty” sample for this study
- First we do do a log likelihood fit to the combined sample from low and high side bands; this is our background fit
- Then we do a log likelihood fit to the signal region
- The asymmetry in K*(890) lobes in signal suggests interference with K*(1430)

Likelihood profiles for the combined low and side bandsD+ K+K- +background fit

- For the background fit intensity function we pick two Breit-Wigners for f and K*(890) and a flat background
- We fit for f and K*(890) amplitudes, fixing the flat background at unity

We fix the parameters in the background probability density function to the values we obtained from our fit to the background.

- For the signal region we pick
- three Breit-Wigners for f, K*(890) and K*(1430)
- Zemach factors for f and K*(890)
- two complex phases and two amplitudes.
- Do a log likelihood fit to the signal probability density function

The results match the likelihood profiles that we obtain using a clean D+ K+K- + sample in which we do not fit for the background (the arrows indicate the clean sample minimums)

D+ K+K- + Dalitz projections

- Putting it all together, we overlay the Dalitz squared mass projections of the combined probability density function and the data
- The overlays match reasonably well
