Abstract

The CLEO collaboration has investigated Kobayashi-Moskawa favored and disfavored decays of B mesons. Upper limits on the matrix element V bu have been obtained through searches for bu transitions. There is no evidence for the decay modes B -pp̄π - or B 0pp̄π + π - reported by the ARGUS collaboration.
