Abstract

The B-→D+K-π- decay is observed in a data sample corresponding to 3.0 fb-1 of pp collision data recorded by the LHCb experiment during 2011 and 2012. Its branching fraction is measured to be B(B-→D+K-π-)=(7.31±0.19±0.22±0.39)×10-5 where the uncertainties are statistical, systematic and from the branching fraction of the normalization channel B-→D+π-π-, respectively. An amplitude analysis of the resonant structure of the B-→D+K-π- decay is used to measure the contributions from quasi-two-body B-→D0∗(2400)0K-, B-→D2∗(2460)0K-, and B-→DJ∗(2760)0K- decays, as well as from nonresonant sources. The DJ∗(2760)0 resonance is determined to have spin 1.
