Abstract

We analyze the decay B^0 → K^+π^-π^0 with a sample of 4.54×10^8 BB̅ events collected by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B factory at SLAC, and extract the complex amplitudes of seven interfering resonances over the Dalitz plot. These results are combined with amplitudes measured in B^0 → K_S^0π^+π^- decays to construct isospin amplitudes from B^0 → K^* π and B^0 → ρK decays. We measure the phase of the isospin amplitude Φ_(3/2), useful in constraining the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa unitarity triangle angle γ and evaluate a CP rate asymmetry sum rule sensitive to the presence of new physics operators. We measure direct CP violation in B^0 → K^(*+)π^- decays at the level of 3σ when measurements from both B^0 → K^+π^-π^0 and B^0 → K_S^0π^+π^- decays are combined.
