We study the decay B-0 ->(D*+D*-KS0) using (230 +/- 2)x10(6)B (B) over bar pairs collected by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II B factory. We measure a branching fraction B(B-0 ->(D*+D*-KS0))=(4.4 +/- 0.4 +/- 0.7)x10(-3) and find evidence for the decay B-0 -> D*-Ds1+(2536) with a significance of 4.6 sigma.

Abstract

We study the decay B-0 ->(D*+D*-KS0) using (230 +/- 2)x10(6)B (B) over bar pairs collected by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II B factory. We measure a branching fraction B(B-0 ->(D*+D*-KS0))=(4.4 +/- 0.4 +/- 0.7)x10(-3) and find evidence for the decay B-0 -> D*-Ds1+(2536) with a significance of 4.6 sigma. A time-dependent CP asymmetry analysis is also performed to study the possible resonant contributions to B-0 ->(D*+D*-KS0) and the sign of cos2 beta. Our measurement indicates that there is a sizable resonant contribution to the decay B-0 ->(D*+D*-KS0) from an unknown D-s1(+) state with large width, and that cos2 beta is positive at the 94% confidence level under certain theoretical assumptions.
