Description

The measurement of the Unitarity Triangle angle γ is a cornerstone of our understanding of the CKM mechanism of quark interactions.
Due to the tiny theoretical uncertainty in self-tagging B decays to D^()K^() final states, these modes will provide a standard candle in CP-violation physics as we drive towards the ultimate precision in flavour physics.
Results in the simplest final states B->DK are well established and will be reviewed. This presentation/poster will expand on the new developments to exploit DK a d DK final states at LHCb.
