Abstract

The $CP$ asymmetry in $B^-\to D_s^-D^0$ and $B^-\to D^-D^0$ decays is measured using LHCb data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb$^{-1}$, collected in $pp$ collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The results are $A^{CP}(B^-\to D_s^-D^0)=(-0.4\pm 0.5\pm 0.5)\%$ and $A^{CP}(B^-\to D^-D^0)=( 2.3\pm 2.7\pm 0.4)\%$, where the first uncertainties are statistical and the second systematic. This is the first measurement of $A^{CP}(B^-\to D_s^-D^0)$ and the most precise determination of $A^{CP}(B^-\to D^-D^0)$. Neither result shows evidence of $CP$ violation.

Invariant-mass distribution of $ B ^- \!\rightarrow D ^-_{( s )} D ^0 $ candidates, separated by charge. The top row plots are $ B ^- \!\rightarrow D ^-_ s D ^0 $ decays with $ D ^0 \!\rightarrow K^-\pi^+ $ , the second row with $ D ^0 \!\rightarrow K^-\pi^+\pi^-\pi^+ $ . The plots in the third row correspond to $ B ^- \!\rightarrow D ^- D ^0 $ candidates with $ D ^0 \!\rightarrow K^-\pi^+ $ , the bottom row with $ D ^0 \!\rightarrow K^-\pi^+\pi^-\pi^+ $ . The left plots are $ B ^- $ candidates, the right plots $ B ^+ $ candidates. The overlaid curves show the fits described in the text.
