The measured time-integrated CP asymmetry is $A_{CP}(D^0 \to K^0_S K^0_S) = (-0.02 \pm 1.53 \pm 0.02 \pm 0.17) \%$ and the branching fraction is $\mathcal{B} (D^{0}\rightarrow K_{S}^{0}K_{S}^{0})$ = (1.32 $\pm$ 0.02 $\pm$ 0.04 $\pm$ 0.04) $\times$ 10$^{-4}$, where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic, and the third is due to the normalization mode ($D^0 \to K_S^0 \pi^0$) used in the analysis.

A new charmoniumlike state $X^*(3860)$ that decays to $D \bar{D}$ is observed with a significance of $6.5\sigma$.

From these moments we determine the CP-violation-sensitive asymmetry $a_{CP}^{T-odd}$ = [-0.28$±$1.38(stat.)$_{-0.76}^{+0.23}$(syst.)] × 10$^{-3}$, which is consistent with no CP violation [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); External link: Fulltext 2017-06-2216:12 [PUBDB-2017-05882] Report/Journal Article et al Measurement of the $\tau$ lepton polarization and $R(D^*)$ in the decay $\bar{B} \to D^* \tau^- \bar{\nu}_\tau$ [KEK-PREPRINT-2016-53; BELLE-PREPRINT-2016-14; arXiv:1612.00529] Physical review letters 118(21), 211801 (2017) [10.1103/PhysRevLett.118.211801]   We report the first measurement of the τ lepton polarization $P_{τ}(D^*)$ in the decay $\bar{B} → D^{*}τ^{-}\bar{ν}_τ$ as well as a new measurement of the ratio of the branching fractions $R(D^{*}) = \mathcal{B}(\bar{B} → D^{*}τ^{-}\bar{ν}τ)\mathcal{B}(\bar{B} → D^{*} ℓ^{-}\bar{ν}ℓ)$, where $ℓ^-$ denotes an electron or a muon, and the $τ$ is reconstructed in the modes $τ^{-} → π^{-}ν_τ$ and $τ^{-} → ρ^{-}ν_τ$. We use the full data sample of 772 × 10$^{6} B\bar{B}$ pairs recorded with the Belle detector at the KEKB electron-positron collider.
