Abstract

An amplitude analysis of B 0 → (π + π − )(K + π − ) decays is performed in the two-body invariant mass regions 300 < m(π + π − ) < 1100 MeV/c 2 , accounting for the ρ 0 , ω, f 0 (500), f 0 (980) and f 0 (1370) resonances, and 750 < m(K + π − ) < 1200 MeV/c 2 , which is dominated by the K * (892) 0 meson. The analysis uses 3 fb −1 of proton-proton collision data collected by the LHCb experiment at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The CP averages and asymmetries are measured for the magnitudes and phase differences of the con- tributing amplitudes. The CP-averaged longitudinal polarisation fractions of the vector-vector modes are found to be f˜ρK*0 = 0.164 ± 0.015 ± 0.022 and f˜ωK*0 = 0.68 ± 0.17 ± 0.16, and their CP asymmetries, AρK*0 = −0.62 ± 0.09 ± 0.09 and AωK*0 = −0.13 ± 0.27 ± 0.13, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic.
