Abstract

We report the observation of decays B-0 -> D-s((*)+)pi(-) and B-0 -> Ds(*)-K+ in a sample of 230x10(6) Upsilon(4S)-> BB events recorded with the BABAR detector at the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric-energy e(+)e(-) storage ring. We measure the branching fractions B(B-0 -> D-s(+)pi(-))=(1.3 +/- 0.3(stat)+/- 0.2(syst))x10(-5), B(B-0 -> Ds-K+)=(2.5 +/- 0.4(stat)+/- 0.4(syst))x10(-5), B(B-0 -> D-s(*+)pi(-))=(2.8 +/- 0.6(stat)+/- 0.5(syst))x10(-5), and B(B-0 -> Ds*-K+)=(2.0 +/- 0.5(stat)+/- 0.4(syst))x10(-5). The significances of the measurements to differ from zero are 5, 9, 6, and 5 standard deviations, respectively. This is the first observation of B-0 -> D-s(+)pi(-), B-0 -> D-s(*+)pi(-), and B-0 -> Ds*-K+ decays.
