Measurement of time-dependent CP asymmetries in B^0→D^((*)±)π^∓ and B^0→D^±ρ^∓ decays


We present updated results on time-dependent CP asymmetries in fully reconstructed B^0→D^((*)±)π^∓ and B^0→D^±ρ^∓ decays in approximately 232×10^6 Υ(4S)→BB events collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B factory at SLAC. From a time-dependent maximum-likelihood fit we obtain for the parameters related to the CP violation angle 2β+γ: a^(Dπ)=-0.010±0.023±0.007, c_(lep)^(Dπ)=-0.033±0.042±0.012, a^(D*π)=-0.040±0.023±0.010, c_(lep)D^(*π)=0.049± 0.042±0.015,a^(Dρ)=-0.024±0.031±0.009, c_(lep)^(Dρ)=-0.098±0.055±0.018, where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic. Using other measurements and theoretical assumptions, we interpret the results in terms of the angles of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa unitarity triangle and find |sin⁡(2β+γ)|>0.64  (0.40) at 68% (90%) confidence level.
