Abstract

An analysis of B<sup>+</sup>→K<inf>S</inf><sup>0</sup>π<sup>+</sup> and B<sup>+</sup>→K<inf>S</inf><sup>0</sup>K<sup>+</sup> decays is performed with the LHCb experiment. The pp collision data used correspond to integrated luminosities of 1fb<sup>-1</sup> and 2fb<sup>-1</sup> collected at centre-of-mass energies of √s=7TeV and √s=8TeV, respectively. The ratio of branching fractions and the direct CP asymmetries are measured to be B(B<sup>+</sup>→K<inf>S</inf>0K<sup>+</sup>)/B(B<sup>+</sup>→K<inf>S</inf><sup>0</sup>π<sup>+</sup>)=0.064±0.009 (stat.)±0.004(syst.), A<sup>CP</sup>(B<sup>+</sup>→K<inf>S</inf><sup>0</sup>π<sup>+</sup>)=-0.022±0.025(stat.)±0.010 (syst.) and A<sup>CP</sup>(B<sup>+</sup>→K<inf>S</inf><sup>0</sup>K<sup>+</sup>)=-0.21±0.14 (stat.)±0.01 (syst.). The data sample taken at √s=7 TeV is used to search for B<inf>c</inf><sup>+</sup>→K<inf>S</inf><sup>0</sup>K<sup>+</sup> decays and results in the upper limit (f<inf>c</inf>{dot operator}B(B<inf>c</inf><sup>+</sup>→K<inf>S</inf><sup>0</sup>K<sup>+</sup>))/(fu{dot operator}B(B<sup>+</sup>→K<inf>S</inf><sup>0</sup>π<sup>+</sup>))<5.8×10-2 at 90% confidence level, where f<inf>c</inf> and f<inf>u</inf> denote the hadronisation fractions of a b- quark into a Bc+ or a B<sup>+</sup> meson, respectively. © 2013 CERN.
