Searches for CP violation in D+ to K-K+pi+ decays at the LHCb experiment

Abstract:

This thesis documents searches for direct CP violation in the Cabibbo-suppressed D+ to K-K+pi+ decay at the LHCb experiment. Two complementary analyses are described. Direct CP-violating asymmetries are predicted to exist in singly Cabibbo-suppressed charm decays with magnitudes of up to O(0.001) in the Standard Model, and can be enhanced to the percent level by contributions from new physics. No such asymmetry has yet been observed.

The LHCb detector is a forward spectrometer with...
