Analysis of B Meson Decays to Three Charged Pions
Decays of B mesons to three-body charmless final states probe the properties of the weak interaction through their dependence on the complex quark couplings in the CKM matrix. They also test dynamical models for hadronic B decays. Based on a sample of 772 million BB pairs collected by the Belle experiment, we present a study of direct CP violation in the decay of charged B to three charged pions.
