Measurement of Time-Dependent CP Asymmetries and the CP-Odd Fraction in the Decay B^0→D*+D*−


We present a measurement of time-dependent CP asymmetries and an updated determination of the CP-odd fraction in the decay B^0→D*+D*− using a data sample of 88×10^6 BB[overbar] pairs collected by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II B Factory at SLAC. We determine the CP-odd fraction to be 0.063±0.055(stat)±0.009(syst). The time-dependent CP asymmetry parameters Im(λ_+) and |λ_+|are determined to be 0.05±0.29(stat)±0.10(syst) and 0.75±0.19(stat)±0.02(syst), respectively. The standard model predicts these parameters to be −sin2β and 1, respectively, in the absence of penguin diagram contributions.
