Abstract

Measurements of CP observables in B0 → DK∗0 decays are presented, where D represents a superposition of D0 and D̅0 states. The D meson is reconstructed in the two-body final states K+π, π+K, K+K and π+π, and, for the first time, in the fourbody final states K+ππ+π, π+Kπ+π and π+ππ+π. The analysis uses a sample of neutral B mesons produced in proton-proton collisions, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0, 2.0 and 1.8 fb−1 collected with the LHCb detector at centre-of-mass energies of √s=7,8 and 13 TeV, respectively. First observations of the decays B0 → D(π+K)K∗0 and B0 → D(π+ππ+π)K∗0 are obtained. The measured observables are interpreted in terms of the CP -violating weak phase γ.
