VTechWorks staff will be away for the Thanksgiving holiday starting Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 25, through Sunday Nov. 29, and will not be replying to requests during this time. Thank you for your patience.
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.
