Measurements of Branching Fractions and Time-dependent CP Violating Asymmetries in $B^{0} \to D^{(*)\pm}D^{\mp}$ Decays

We report measurements of branching fractions and time-dependent CP
asymmetries in $B^{0} \to D^{+}D^{-}$ and $B^{0} \to D^{*\pm}D^{\mp}$ decays
using a data sample that contains $(772 \pm 11)\times 10^6 B\bar{B}$ pairs
collected at the $\Upsilon(4S)$ resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB
asymmetric-energy $e^+ e^-$ collider. We determine the branching fractions to
be $\mathcal{B}(B^{0} \to D^{+}D^{-})=(2.12 \pm 0.16 \pm 0.18)\times 10^{-4}$
and $\mathcal{B}(B^{0} \to D^{*\pm}D^{\mp}=(6.14 \pm 0.29 \pm 0.50)\times
10^{-4}$. We measure CP asymmetry parameters $\mathcal{S}_{D^{+}D^{-}} =
-1.06_{-0.14}^{+0.21} \pm 0.08$ and $\mathcal{C}_{D^{+}D^{-}} = -0.43 \pm 0.16
\pm 0.05$ in $B^{0} \to D^{+}D^{-}$ and $\mathcal{A}_{D^{*}D} = +0.06 \pm 0.05
\pm 0.02$, $\mathcal{S}_{D^{*}D} = -0.78 \pm 0.15 \pm 0.05$,
$\mathcal{C}_{D^{*}D} = -0.01 \pm 0.11 \pm 0.04$, $\Delta\mathcal{S}_{D^{*}D} =
-0.13 \pm 0.15 \pm 0.04$ and $\Delta\mathcal{C}_{D^{*}D} = +0.12 \pm 0.11 \pm
0.03$ in $B^{0} \to D^{*\pm}D^{\mp}$, where the first uncertainty is
statistical and the second is systematic. We exclude the conservation of CP
symmetry in both decays at equal to or greater than $4\sigma$ significance.
