Studies of $B^0 \to ρ^\pm π^\mp$ and Evidence of $B^0 \to ρ^0 π^0$Jul 28 2003We report studies of $B^0 \to \pi^+ \pi^- \pi^0$, using $78 {\rm fb}^{-1}$ of data collected at the $\Upsilon(4S)$ resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric $e^+e^-$ storage ring. We measure the branching fraction for $B^0 \to \rho^\pm ... More

Observation of $B^{\pm} \to D_{CP}K^{*\pm}$ DecaysJul 28 2003We report preliminary results on the decay $B^{-} \to D^{0}K^{*-}$, $B^{-} \to D_{CP}K^{*-}$ and its charge c onjugate using a data sample of 95.8 million $B\bar{B}$ pairs recorded at the $\Upsilon(4S)$ resonance with the Belle d etector at the KEKB asymmetric ...

Production of Prompt Charmonia in $e^+e^-$ Annihilation at $\sqrt{s}\approx 10.6$ GeVOct 05 2001The production of prompt $J/\psi$, $\psi(2S)$, $\chi_{c1}$ and $\chi_{c2}$ is studied using a $32.4 fb^{-1}$ data sample collected with the Belle detector at the $\Upsilon(4S)$ and 60 MeV below the resonance. The yield of prompt $J/\psi$ mesons in the ... More
