We report the determination of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa CP-violating angle γ through the combination of various measurements involving B ±→DK±, B±→D *K±, and B±→DK *± decays performed by the BABAR experiment at the PEP-II e+e- collider at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.

Abstract

We report the determination of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa CP-violating angle γ through the combination of various measurements involving B ±→DK±, B±→D *K±, and B±→DK *± decays performed by the BABAR experiment at the PEP-II e+e- collider at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. Using up to 474 million BB̄ pairs, we obtain γ=(69-16+17) modulo 180. The total uncertainty is dominated by the statistical component, with the experimental and amplitude-model systematic uncertainties amounting to ±4. The corresponding two-standard-deviation region is 41 <102. This result is inconsistent with γ=0 with a significance of 5.9 standard deviations.
