Abstract

The decay-time-dependent $CP$ asymmetry in $B^0 \to D^{*\pm}D^{\mp}$ decays is measured using a data set corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $9$fb$^{-1}$ recorded by the LHCb detector in proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 7, 8 and 13 TeV. The $CP$ parameters are measured as $ S_{D^*D} = -0.861 \pm 0.077\,\text{(stat)} \pm 0.019 \,\text{(syst)}\,, $ $ \Delta S_{D^*D} = 0.019 \pm 0.075 \,\text{(stat)} \pm 0.012 \,\text{(syst)} \,, $ $ C_{D^*D} = -0.059 \pm 0.092 \,\text{(stat)} \pm 0.020 \,\text{(syst)} \,, $ $ \Delta C_{D^*D} = -0.031 \pm 0.092 \,\text{(stat)} \pm 0.016 \,\text{(syst)} \,, $ $ {\cal A}_{D^*D} = 0.008 \pm 0.014 \,\text{(stat)} \pm 0.006 \,\text{(syst)}\,. $ The analysis provides the most precise single measurement of $CP$ violation in this decay channel to date. All parameters are consistent with their current world average values.
