"On the road to measure CP violation and test the Standard Model:Observation of hadronic b --> u transitions"
ABSTRACT:
CP violation is one of the great mystery of the universe. The major motivation of the first-generation B factories is to measure CP violations in the B meson system, especially the three CKM angles Alpha, Beta and Gamma. I'll present the first observation of hadronic b --> u transitions (B --> Pi+Rho-, Pi+Rho0, Pi+Pi-) which will be very important for the future measurements of the CKM angles Alpha and Gamma. Measuring Alpha and Gamma using these decay modes at the first-generation B factories will be discussed, along with a future outlook of B physics
