CP violation in charmless two-body B decays at LHCb

by Stefano Perazzini (INFN Bologna (IT))

at CERN ( 503-1-001 - Council Chamber )
The study of CP violation in charmless charged two-body decays of neutral B mesons provides a test of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa picture of the Standard Model, and is a sensitive probe to contributions of processes beyond it. 
Using a data sample of proton-proton collisions, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb-1, collected with the LHCb detector at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, CP violation has been observed for the first time in the B0_s to K-pi+ decay with a significance of more than 5 sigma. 
Furthermore, first measurements of direct and mixing-induced CP-violating asymmetries in the B0_s to K+K- decay have been performed, opening new avenues to the determination of the unitarity triangle angle gamma using decays affected by penguin processes.
