Dalitz plot analyses of B^0 → D^−D^0K^+ and B^+ → D^0D^0K^+ decays


We present Dalitz plot analyses for the decays of B mesons to D^−D^0K^+ and D^0D^0K^+. We report the observation of the D^∗_(s1)(2700)^+ resonance in these two channels and obtain measurements of the mass M(D^∗_(s1)(2700)+)=2699^(+14)_(−7)  MeV/c^2 and of the width Γ(D^∗_(s1)(2700)+)=127^(+24)_(−19)  MeV, including statistical and systematic uncertainties. In addition, we observe an enhancement in the D^0K^+ invariant mass around 2350–2500  MeV/c^2 in both decays B^0→D^−D^0K^+ and B^+→D^0D^0K^+, which we are not able to interpret. The results are based on 429  fb^(−1) of data containing 471×10^6BB pairs collected at the Υ(4S) resonance with the BABAR detector at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
