Observation of structures in J/psi phi spectrum in exclusive B+ --> J/psi phi K+ decays at 7 TeV: BPH-11-026


A peaking structure in the J/psi-phi mass from B+ -> J/psi phi K+ decays has been observed in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV using 5.2 fb-1 of integrated luminosity collected with the CMS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. Fitting the structure to an S-wave relativistic Breit-Wigner lineshapes over a three-body phase-space non-resonant component, gives a signal statistical exceeding 5 standard deviations. The fitted mass and the width values are m = 4148.0 +/- 2.4(stat) +/- 6.3(syst) MeV and Γ = 28 +/- 15 (stat) +/-19 (syst) MeV, respectively. Evidence for an additional peaking structure at higher J/psi phi mass is also reported.

paperfig1.png The J/ψ φ K+ mass distribution with the standard event selection (left) and the tighter requirements (right). The solid curves show the result of fitting these distributions to a Gaussian signal and a second-degree polynomial background while the dashed curves show the background contribution. pdf

paperfig2.png The B+ sideband-subtracted K+ K- invariant-mass distribution for J/ψ φ K+ candidates within ± 3 σ of the nominal B+ mass. The solid curve is the result of the fit described in the text. The dashed line shows the zero-candidate baseline. pdf

paperfig3.png The number of J/ψ φ K+ candidates as a function of Δ m = m(μ+μ-K+K-)-m(μ+μ-). The solid curve is the global unbinned maximum-likelihood fit of the data, and the dotted curve is the background contribution assuming three-body PS. The band is the ± 1σ uncertainty range for the background obtained from the global fit. The dashed and dash-dotted curves are background curves obtained from two different event-mixing procedures, as described in the text, and normalized to the number of three-body PS background events. The short dashed curve is the 1D fit to the data. pdf

paperfig4.png The yield of B+→ J/ψ K+ K- K+ candidates in the data as a function of the K+ K- K+ invariant mass. The error bars represent the statistical uncertainties. The solid curve is the prediction from the PS simulation. pdf

paperfig5.png The number of B+ -> J/psi K+ K- K+ candidates as a function of Δm requiring either m(K+K-K+) < 1.68 GeV or m(K+K-K+) > 1.88 GeV (left), or 1.68 < m(K+K-K+) < 1.88 GeV (right). The solid curve is the prediction from the PS simulation. pdf

The extension of the Δm spectrum, after subtracting non-B background, to the full phase space. The left part, indicated by the red vertical line, is a copy of Fig.3 in the paper. The right part presents the B yields extracted in the seven bins of the previous eliminated region, after subtraction of the B0s background. The blue dashed curve represents the three-body phase-space non-resonant background extrapolated from the left region to the right region. pdf|
