The angular distributions and the differential branching fraction of the decay B-0 -> K*(892)(0)mu(+)mu(-) are studied using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.5 fb(-1) collected with the CMS detector at the LHC in pp collisions at root s = 8 TeV.

Abstract

The angular distributions and the differential branching fraction of the decay B-0 -> K*(892)(0)mu(+)mu(-) are studied using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.5 fb(-1) collected with the CMS detector at the LHC in pp collisions at root s = 8 TeV. From 1430 signal decays, the forward-backward asymmetry of the muons, the K*(892)(0) longitudinal polarization fraction, and the differential branching fraction are determined as a function of the dimuon invariant mass squared. The measurements are among the most precise to date and are in good agreement with standard model predictions.
