The CPviolating asymmetry a_{sl}^s is studied using semileptonic decays of Bs and antiBs mesons produced in pp collisions at a centreofmass energy of 7 TeV at the LHC, exploiting a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0/fb. The reconstructed final states are Ds^(+/)\mu ^(/+), with the Ds^(+/) particle decaying in the \phi\pi^(+/) mode. The Ds^(+/)\mu ^{/+) yields are summed over Bs and antiBs initial states, and integrated with respect to decay time. Datadriven methods are used to measure efficiency ratios. We obtain $a_{sl}^s$ = (0.06 +/ 0.50 +/ 0.36), where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic.
Invariant mass distributions for: (a) $ K ^+ K ^ \pi ^+ $ and (b) $ K ^+ K ^ \pi ^ $ candidates for magnet up, (c) $ K ^+ K ^ \pi ^+ $ and (d) $ K ^+ K ^ \pi ^ $ candidates for magnet down with $ K ^+ K ^ $ invariant mass within $\pm$20 $\mathrm{ Me V} $ of the $\phi$ meson mass. The $ D ^+_ s $ [yellow (grey) shaded area] and $ D ^+$ [red (dark) shaded area] signal shapes are described in the text. The $\chi ^2$/ndf for these fits are 1.28, 1.25, 1.53, and 1.27 respectively, the corresponding pvalues are 7%, 8%, 4%, 7%.

Invariant $\mu ^+ \mu ^ $ mass distributions of the kinematicallyselected $ { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu}$ candidates in magnet up data, where the red (open) circles represent entries where the muon candidate, kinematically selected, is rejected and the black (filled) circles those where it is accepted by the muon identification algorithm. The dashed lines represent the combinatorial background.

(a) Spectrum of the logarithm of the IP calculated with respect to the primary vertex for $ D ^+_ s $ candidates in combination with muons; the insert shows a magnified view of the region where the prompt $ D ^+_ s $ contribution peaks. The blue dashed line is the component coming from $B$ hadron decays, the black dashed line the false $ D ^+_ s $ background, the red line the prompt background, (b) the invariant mass distributions for $ D ^+_ s \rightarrow \phi\pi$ candidates. These distributions are for the magnet down sample. (For interpretation of the reference to colour in this figure legend, the reader is referred to the web version of this Letter.)

Asymmetries corrected for relative muon efficiencies, $A_{\mu}^{\text{c}}$, examined in the five muon momentum intervals for (a) magnet up data, (b) magnet down data and (c) average, using the KS muon calibration method. Then (d) magnet up data, (e) magnet down data and (f) average, using the MS muon calibration method in the two different binning scheme.

Measurements of semileptonic decay asymmetries. The bands correspond to the central values $\pm$1 standard deviation uncertainties, defined as the sum in quadrature of the statistical and systematic errors. The solid dot indicates the SM prediction.
