Measurement of the Ratio of Branching Fractions
Bs -> Ds Ds / Bd -> Ds D+
where Ds -> φ π, K* K and 3π and D+ -> K π π

This is the web page summarizing the blessed result for the measurement of the ratio of branching fractions. The measurement is done using 355 pb-1 CDF data set and have been blessed in the B Physics Meeting on Thursday Mar 14, 2006. We observed an exclusive Bs -> Ds Ds decay at 5.8σ confidence level and found:

fs/fd * BR(Bs → DsDs ) / BR(B0 → DsD+) = 0.43 ± 0.11(Stat) ± 0.03(Syst) ± 0.10(BR)
BR(Bs → DsDs ) / BR(B0 → DsD+ ) = 1.67 ± 0.41(Stat) ± 0.12(Syst) ± 0.24 (fs/fd) ± 0.39(BR)

Reconstructed Bd -> DsD+ where Ds -> φ π
