Abstract

We report results of a study of charmless B meson decays to three-body [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] final states. Measurements of branching fractions for B decays to [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] final states are presented. The decays [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] are observed for the first time. We also report evidence for [Formula Presented] decay. For the three-body final states [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] 90% confidence level upper limits are reported. Finally, we discuss the possibility of using the three-body [Formula Presented] decay for [Formula Presented] violation studies. The results are obtained with a 78 [Formula Presented] data sample collected at the [Formula Presented] resonance by the Belle detector operating at the KEKB asymmetric energy [Formula Presented] collider.

N2 - We report results of a study of charmless B meson decays to three-body [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] final states. Measurements of branching fractions for B decays to [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] final states are presented. The decays [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] are observed for the first time. We also report evidence for [Formula Presented] decay. For the three-body final states [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] 90% confidence level upper limits are reported. Finally, we discuss the possibility of using the three-body [Formula Presented] decay for [Formula Presented] violation studies. The results are obtained with a 78 [Formula Presented] data sample collected at the [Formula Presented] resonance by the Belle detector operating at the KEKB asymmetric energy [Formula Presented] collider.
