Abstract

Using 818pb−1 of CLEO-c data at √s =3770 MeV, we measure precisely the branching ratios for four D+ → K+K−X hadronic channels. Our measurement improves the errors of B(D+ → K+K−π+π0) and B(D+ → φπ+π0) by factors of 10 respectively. We report first observation of the decay D+ → φρ+, as well as branching ratio measurements for two rare decays.
