Exploring CP violation and penguin effects through B0d→D+D- and B0s→D+sD-s

Abstract

The decay B0d→D+D- offers an interesting probe of CP violation, but it requires control of penguin effects, which can be done through B0s→D+sD-s by means of the U-spin flavour symmetry of strong interactions. Recently, the Belle collaboration reported indications of large CP violation in the B0d decay, which were, however, not confirmed by BaBar, and first signals of the B0s channel were observed at the Tevatron. In view of these developments and the quickly approaching start of the LHC, we explore the allowed region in observable space for CP violation in B0d→D+D-, perform theoretical estimates of the relevant hadronic penguin parameters and observables, and we address questions both about the most promising strategies for the extraction of CP-violating phases and about the interplay with other measurements of CP violation and the search for new physics. As far as the latter aspect is concerned, we point out that the B0q→Dq+D-q system provides a setting for the determination of the B0q–B̄0q mixing phases (q∈{d,s}) that is complementary to the conventional B0d→J/ψKS and B0s→J/ψφ modes with respect to possible new-physics effects in the electroweak penguin sector.
