Abstract

The decay Λb0→Λc+pp‾π− is observed using pp collision data collected with the LHCb detector at centre-of-mass energies of s=7 and 8 Tev, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb−1. The ratio of branching fractions between Λb0→Λc+pp‾π− and Λb0→Λc+π− decays is measured to be [Formula presented]=0.0540±0.0023±0.0032. Two resonant structures are observed in the Λc+π− mass spectrum of the Λb0→Λc+pp‾π− decays, corresponding to the Σc(2455)0 and Σc⁎(2520)0 states. The ratios of branching fractions with respect to the decay Λb0→Λc+pp‾π− are [Formula presented]=0.089±0.015±0.006,[Formula presented]=0.119±0.020±0.014. In all of the above results, the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic. The phase space is also examined for the presence of dibaryon resonances. No evidence for such resonances is found.
