We report the determination of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa CP-violating angle γ through the combination of various measurements involving B±→DK±, B±→D∗K±, and B±→DK*± decays performed by the BABAR experiment at the PEP-II e+e− collider at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. Using up to 474 million BBbar pairs, we obtain γ=(69+17−16)° modulo 180°. The total uncertainty is dominated by the statistical component, with the experimental and amplitude-model systematic uncertainties amounting to ±4°. The corresponding two-standard-deviation region is 41°<102°. This result is inconsistent with γ=0 with a significance of 5.9 standard deviations.

Abstract

We report the determination of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa CP-violating angle γ through the combination of various measurements involving B±→DK±, B±→D∗K±, and B±→DK*± decays performed by the BABAR experiment at the PEP-II e+e− collider at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. Using up to 474 million BBbar pairs, we obtain γ=(69+17−16)° modulo 180°. The total uncertainty is dominated by the statistical component, with the experimental and amplitude-model systematic uncertainties amounting to ±4°. The corresponding two-standard-deviation region is 41°<102°. This result is inconsistent with γ=0 with a significance of 5.9 standard deviations.
