Measurement of the CP-violating phase β in B0→J/ψπ+π− decays and limits on penguin effects

Abstract : Time-dependent CP violation is measured in the B0→J/ψπ+π− channel for each π+π− resonant final state using data collected with an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb−1 in pp collisions using the LHCb detector. The final state with the largest rate, J/ψρ0(770), is used to measure the CP-violating angle 2βeff to be (41.7±9.6+2.8−6.3)∘. This result can be used to limit the size of penguin amplitude contributions to CP violation measurements in, for example, B0s→J/ψϕ decays. Assuming approximate SU(3) flavour symmetry and neglecting higher order diagrams, the shift in the CP-violating phase ϕs is limited to be within the interval [−1.05∘, +1.18∘] at 95% confidence level. Changes to the limit due to SU(3) symmetry breaking effects are also discussed.
