Measurement of Branching Fractions and Resonance Contributions for B^0→D^0K^+π^- and Search for B^0→D^0K^+π^- Decays


Using 226×10^6 Υ(4S)→BB events collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II e^+e^- storage ring at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, we measure the branching fraction for B^0→D^0K^+π^-, excluding B^0→D^(*-)K^+, to be B(B^0→D^0K^+π^-)=(88±15±9)×10^(-6). We observe B^0→D^0K^*(892)^0 and B^0→D_2^*(2460)^-K^+ contributions. The ratio of branching fractions B(B^0→D^(*-)K^+)/B(B^0→D^(*-)π^+)=(7.76±0.34±0.29)% is measured separately. The branching fraction for the suppressed mode B^0→D^0K^+π^- is B(B^0→D^0K^+π^-)<19×10^(-6) at the 90% confidence level.
