Abstract

We present measurements of the branching fraction and CP-violating asymmetries in the decay B-0-->f(0)(980)K-S(0). The results are obtained from a data sample of 123x10(6) Y(4S)-->B (B) over bar decays. From a time-dependent maximum likelihood fit, we measure the branching fraction B(B-0-->f(0)(980)(-->pi(+)pi(-))K-0)=(6.0+/-0.9+/-0.6+/-1.2)x10(-6), the mixing-induced CP violation parameter S=-1.62(-0.51)(+0.56)+/-0.09+/-0.04, and the direct CP violation parameter C=0.27+/-0.36+/-0.10+/-0.07, where the first errors are statistical, the second systematic, and the third due to model uncertainties. We measure the f(0)(980) mass and width to be m(f0)(980)=(980.6+/-4.1+/-0.5+/-4.0) MeV/c(2) and Gamma(f0)(980)=(43(-9)(+12)+/-3+/-9) MeV/c(2), respectively.
