First observation and amplitude analysis of the B−→D+K−π− decay

Abstract : The B−→D+K−π− decay is observed in a data sample corresponding to 3.0 fb−1 of pp collision data recorded by the LHCb experiment during 2011 and 2012. Its branching fraction is measured to be B(B−→D+K−π−)=(7.92±0.23±0.24±0.42)×10−5 where the uncertainties are statistical, systematic and from the branching fraction of the normalisation channel B−→D+π−π−, respectively. An amplitude analysis of the resonant structure of the B−→D+K−π− decay is used to measure the contributions from quasi-two-body B−→D∗0(2400)0K−, B−→D∗2(2460)0K−, and B−→D∗J(2760)0K− decays, as well as from nonresonant sources. The D∗J(2760)0 resonance is determined to have spin~1.
