Abstract: Measurements are presented of the branching fractions of the decays B S 0 → D S K and B 0 → D S K + relative to the decays B S 0 → D S π + and B 0 → D π +, respectively. The data used correspond to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb −1 of proton-proton collisions. The ratios of branching fractions are (Formula presented.) where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively.[Figure not available: see fulltext.]
