Aubert, B. et al. (2008) Dalitz plot analysis of the decay B0(B¯0)→K±π∓π0. Physical Review D, 78 (5). 052005. ISSN 1550-7998

We report a Dalitz-plot analysis of the charmless hadronic decays of neutral B mesons to K±π∓π0. With a sample of (231.8±2.6)×106Υ(4S)→BB̅ decays collected by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B Factory at SLAC, we measure the magnitudes and phases of the intermediate resonant and nonresonant amplitudes for B0 and B̅ 0 decays and determine the corresponding CP-averaged branching fractions and charge asymmetries. The inclusive branching fraction and CP-violating charge asymmetry are measured to be B(B0→K+π-π0)=(35.7-1.5+2.6±2.2)×10-6 and ACP=-0.030-0.051+0.045±0.055 where the first errors are statistical and the second systematic. We observe the decay B0→K*0(892)π0 with the branching fraction B(B0→K*0(892)π0)=(3.6-0.8+0.7±0.4)×10-6. This measurement differs from zero by 5.6 standard deviations (including the systematic uncertainties). The selected sample also contains B0→D̅ 0π0 decays where D̅ 0→K+π-, and we measure B(B0→D̅ 0π0)=(2.93±0.17±0.18)×10-4.
