Beauty to Doubly Open Charm Decays at LHCb

Fionn Bishop (Cambridge University)


Beauty to doubly open charm decays at LHCb Decays of beauty mesons to two open charm mesons provide a window into both Standard Model and Beyond Standard Model physics. Decays of the Bc meson to two D mesons may provide sensitivity to the CKM phase gamma and also improve understanding of the Bc meson. The results of a search for these decays in 9fb-1 of proton-proton collisions with the LHCb detector will be presented. Measurements of CP asymmetries in B meson decays to two D mesons, which could provide sensitivity to Beyond Standard Model physics, will also be discussed.
