We use the full data sample of $772 \times 10^6$ $B{\bar B}$ pairs accumulated with the Belle detector at the KEKB electron-positron collider. Our preliminary results, $R(D^*) = 0.276 \pm 0.034{\rm (stat.)} ^{+0.029} _{-0.026}{\rm (syst.)}$ and $P_{\tau} = -0.44 \pm 0.47 {\rm (stat.)} ^{+0.20} _{-0.17} {\rm (syst.)}$, are consistent with the theoretical predictions of the Standard Model within $0.6$ standard deviation.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Using a data sample of 980 ${\rm fb}^{-1}$ of $e^+e^-$ annihilation data taken with the Belle detector operating at the KEKB asymmetric-energy $e^+e^-$ collider, we report the results of a study of excited $\Xi_c$ states that decay, via the emission of photons and/or charged pions, into $\Xi_c^0$ or $\Xi_c^+$ ground state charmed-strange baryons. We present new measurements of the masses of all members of the $\Xi_c^{\prime}$, $\Xi_c(2645)$, $\Xi_c(2790)$, $\Xi_c(2815)$, and $\Xi_c(2980)$ isodoublets, measurements of the intrinsic widths of those that decay strongly, and evidence of previously unknown transitions.

    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The process γγ→ppK+K- and its intermediate processes are measured for the first time using a 980 fb-1 data sample collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e+e- collider. The production of ppK+K- and a Λ(1520)0 (Λ(1520)0) signal in the pK- (pK+) invariant mass spectrum are clearly observed. However, no evidence for an exotic baryon near 1540 MeV/c2, denoted as Θ(1540)0 (Θ(1540)0) or Θ(1540)++ (Θ(1540) - ), is seen in the pK- (pK+) or pK+ (pK-) invariant mass spectra. Cross sections for γγ→ppK+K-, Λ(1520)0pK++c.c. and the products σ(γγ→Θ(1540)0pK++c.c.)B(Θ(1540)0→pK-) and σ(γγ→Θ(1540)++pK-+c.c.)B(Θ(1540)++→pK+) are measured. We also determine upper limits on the products of the χc0 and χc2 two-photon decay widths and their branching fractions to ppK+K- at the 90% credibility level.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We report the first observation of the decay Λ_{c}^{+}→pK^{+}π^{-} using a 980 fb^{-1} data sample collected by the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e^{+}e^{-} collider. This is the first observation of a doubly Cabibbo-suppressed decay of a charmed baryon. We measure the branching ratio of this decay with respect to its Cabibbo-favored counterpart to be B(Λ_{c}^{+}→pK^{+}π^{-})/B(Λ_{c}^{+}→pK^{-}π^{+})=(2.35±0.27±0.21)×10^{-3}, where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We have searched for the decay B-0 -> phi gamma sing the full Belle data set of 772 x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs collected at the gamma(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB e(+)e(-) collider. No signal is observed, and we set an upper limit on the branching fraction of B(B-0 -> phi gamma) < 1.0 x 10(-7) at the 90% confidence level. This is the most stringent limit on this decay mode to date.

    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We report a study of radiative decays of \chi_{bJ}(1P)(J=0,1,2) mesons into 74 hadronic final states comprising charged and neutral pions, kaons, protons; out of these, 41 modes are observed with at least 5 standard deviation significance. Our measurements not only improve the previous measurements by the CLEO Collaboration but also lead to first observations in many new modes. The large sample allows us to probe the total decay width of the \chi_{b0}(1P). In the absence of a statistically significant result, a 90% confidence-level upper limit is set on the width at \Gamma_{total}< 2.4 MeV. Our results are based on 24.7 fb^{-1} of e+e- collision data recorded by the Belle detector at the \Upsilon(2S) resonance, corresponding to (157.8\pm3.6)\times10^6 \Upsilon(2S) decays.

    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We report the discovery of $\Xi_{c}(3055)^{0}$, observed by its decay into the final state $\Lambda D^{0}$, and present the first observation and evidence of the decays of $\Xi_c(3055)^{+}$ and $\Xi_c(3080)^{+}$ into $\Lambda D^{+}$. We also perform a combined analysis of the $\Lambda D^{+}$ with the $\Sigma_{c}^{++}K^{-}$ and $\Sigma_{c}^{\ast ++}K^{-}$ decay modes to measure the ratios of branching fractions, masses and widths with improved accuracy. We measure the ratios of branching fractions ${\cal B}(\Xi_{c}(3055)^{+} \to \Lambda D^{+})/{\cal B}(\Xi_{c}(3055)^{+} \to \Sigma_{c}^{++}K^{-})=5.09\pm1.01\pm0.76$, ${\cal B}(\Xi_{c}(3080)^{+} \to \Lambda D^{+})/{\cal B}(\Xi_{c}(3080)^{+} \to \Sigma_{c}^{++}K^{-})=1.29\pm0.30\pm0.15$, and ${\cal B}(\Xi_{c}(3080)^{+} \to \Sigma_{c}^{\ast ++}K^{-})/{\cal B}(\Xi_{c}(3080)^{+} \to \Sigma_{c}^{++}K^{-})=1.07\pm0.27\pm0.01$, where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic. The analysis is performed using a 980 fb$^{-1}$ data sample collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy $e^{+}e^{-}$ collider.

    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We present a measurement of angular observables, $P_4'$, $P_5'$, $P_6'$, $P_8'$, in the decay $B^0 \to K^\ast(892)^0 \ell^+ \ell^-$, where $\ell^+\ell^-$ is either $e^+e^-$ or $\mu^+\mu^-$. The analysis is performed on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $711~\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ containing $772\times 10^{6}$ $B\bar B$ pairs, collected at the $\Upsilon(4S)$ resonance with the Belle detector at the asymmetric-energy $e^+e^-$ collider KEKB. Four angular observables, $P_{4,5,6,8}'$ are extracted in five bins of the invariant mass squared of the lepton system, $q^2$. We compare our results for $P_{4,5,6,8}'$ with Standard Model predictions including the $q^2$ region in which the LHCb collaboration reported the so-called $P_5'$ anomaly.

    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The process $\gamma \gamma \to p \bar{p} K^+ K^-$ and its intermediate processes are measured for the first time using a 980~fb$^{-1}$ data sample collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy $e^+e^-$ collider. The production of $p \bar{p} K^+ K^-$ and a $\Lambda(1520)^0~(\bar{\Lambda}(1520)^0)$ signal in the $pK^-$~($\bar{p} K^+$) invariant mass spectrum are clearly observed. However, no evidence for an exotic baryon near 1540~MeV/$c^2$, denoted as $\Theta(1540)^0$~($\bar{\Theta}~(1540)^0$) or $\Theta(1540)^{++}$~($\Theta(1540)^{--}$), is seen in the $p K^-$~($\bar{p}K^+$) or $pK^+$~($\bar{p} K^-$) invariant mass spectra. Cross sections for $\gamma \gamma \to p \bar{p} K^+ K^-$, $\Lambda(1520)^0 \bar{p} K^+ +c.c.$ and the products $\sigma(\gamma \gamma \to \Theta(1540)^0 \bar{p} K^+ +c.c.)\BR(\Theta(1540)^0 \to p K^{-})$ and $\sigma(\gamma \gamma \to \Theta(1540)^{++} \bar{p} K^- +c.c.)\BR(\Theta(1540)^{++}\to p K^{+})$ are measured. We also determine upper limits on the products of the $\chi_{c0}$ and $\chi_{c2}$ two-photon decay widths and their branching fractions to $p \bar{p} K^+ K^-$ at the 90\% credibility level.

    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We report a measurement of the amplitude ratio $r_S$ of $B^0 \to D^0K^{\ast 0}$ and $B^0 \to \bar {D^0}K^{\ast 0}$ decays with a Dalitz analysis of $D\to K_S^0\pi ^+\pi ^-$ decays, for the first time using a model-independent method. We set an upper limit $r_S < 0.87$ at the 68% confidence level, using the full data sample of $711\,{\rm fb}^{-1}$ corresponding to $772\times 10^6$ $B\bar {B}$ pairs collected at the $\Upsilon (4S)$ resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB $e^+e^-$ collider. This result is obtained from observables $x_- = +0.4 ^{+1.0 +0.0}_{-0.6 -0.1} \pm 0.0$, $y_- = -0.6 ^{+0.8 +0.1}_{-1.0 -0.0} \pm 0.1$, $x_+ = +0.1 ^{+0.7 +0.0}_{-0.4 -0.1} \pm 0.1$, and $y_+ = +0.3 ^{+0.5 +0.0}_{-0.8 -0.1} \pm 0.1$, where $x_\pm = r_S \cos (\delta _S \pm \phi _3)$, $y_\pm = r_S \sin (\delta _S \pm \phi _3)$, and $\phi _3\ (\delta _S)$ is the weak (strong) phase difference between $B^0 \to D^0K^{\ast 0}$ and $B^0 \to \bar {D^0}K^{\ast 0}$.

    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We report inclusive and exclusive measurements for $\chi_{c1}$ and $\chi_{c2}$ production in $B$ decays. We measure $\mathcal{B}(B \to \chi_{c1} X)$= $(3.03 \pm 0.05(\mbox{stat}) \pm 0.24(\mbox{syst})) \times 10^{-3}$ and $\mathcal{B}(B \to \chi_{c2} X)$= $(0.70 \pm 0.06(\mbox{stat}) \pm 0.10(\mbox{syst})) \times 10^{-3}$. For the first time, $\chi_{c2}$ production in exclusive $B$ decays in the modes $B^0 \to \chi_{c2}\pi^- K^+$ and $B^+ \to \chi_{c2} \pi^+ \pi^- K^+$ has been observed, along with first evidence for the $B^+ \to \chi_{c2} \pi^+ K_S^0$ decay mode. For $\chi_{c1}$ production, we report the first observation in the $B^+ \to \chi_{c1} \pi^+ \pi^- K^+$, $B^0 \to \chi_{c1} \pi^+ \pi^- K_S^0$ and $B^0 \to \chi_{c1} \pi^0 \pi^- K^+$ decay modes. Using these decay modes, we observe a difference in the production mechanism of $\chi_{c2}$ in comparison to $\chi_{c1}$ in $B$ decays. In addition, we report searches for $X(3872)$ and $\chi_{c1}(2P)$ in the $B^+ \to (\chi_{c1} \pi^+ \pi^-) K^+$ decay mode. The reported results use $772 \times 10^{6}$ $B\overline{B}$ events collected at the $\Upsilon(4S)$ resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy $e^+e^-$ collider.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We report inclusive and exclusive measurements for χc1 and χc2 production in B decays. We measure B(B→χc1X)=(3.03±0.05(stat)±0.24(syst))×10-3 and B(B→χc2X)=(0.70±0.06(stat)±0.10(syst))×10-3. For the first time, χc2 production in exclusive B decays in the modes B0→χc2π-K+ and B+→χc2π+π-K+ has been observed, along with first evidence for the B+→χc2π+KS0 decay mode. For χc1 production, we report the first observation in the B+→χc1π+π-K+, B0→χc1π+π-KS0 and B0→χc1π0π-K+ decay modes. Using these decay modes, we observe a difference in the production mechanism of χc2 in comparison to χc1 in B decays. In addition, we report searches for X(3872) and χc1(2P) in the B+→(χc1π+π-)K+ decay mode. The reported results use 772×106 BB-events collected at the (4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e+e- collider.

The results are based on a data sample containing $772\times10^6$ $B\bar{B}$ pairs recorded at the $\Upsilon(4S)$ resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB $e^+ e^-$ collider. We select a sample of $B^0 \bar{B}^0$ pairs by reconstructing both $B$ mesons in semileptonic decays to $D^{*\mp} \ell^{\pm}$. We measure ${\cal R}(D^*)= 0.302 \pm 0.030({\rm stat)} \pm 0.011({\rm syst)}$, which is within $1.6 \sigma$ of the Standard Model theoretical expectation, where $\sigma$ is the standard deviation including systematic uncertainties.

This is the first observation of the decay $D^0 \to \rho^0 \gamma$. We measure preliminary branching fractions $\mathcal{B}(D^0 \to \phi \gamma)=(2.76 \pm 0.20 \pm 0.08) \times 10^{-5}$, $\mathcal{B}(D^0 \to \overline{K}{}^{*0} \gamma)=(4.66 \pm 0.21 \pm 0.18) \times 10^{-4} $ and $\mathcal{B}(D^0 \to \rho^0 \gamma)=(1.77 \pm 0.30 \pm 0.08) \times 10^{-5}$, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic. We also present the first measurement of $CP$ asymmetry in these decays. The preliminary values are $\mathcal{A}_{CP}(D^0 \to \phi \gamma)=-(0.094 \pm 0.066 \pm 0.001)$, $\mathcal{A}_{CP}(D^0 \to \overline{K}{}^{*0} \gamma)=-(0.003 \pm 0.020 \pm 0.000)$ and $\mathcal{A}_{CP}(D^0 \to \rho^0 \gamma)=0.056 \pm 0.151 \pm 0.006$. The analysis was conducted using 943 fb$^{-1}$ of data collected by the Belle detector at the KEKB $e^+e^-$ collider.
